M&S - What's in my Bag

clockwise from top left: moleskine mini notebook, liebeskind purse, little red tin lip salve, turquiose sony headphones, iphone 5, coloured pens, tissues, collection concealer in 'fair', kate moss for rimmel lipstick in shade 101, nina ricci glasses

I've always been a big bag person, and usually my 'what's in my bag' posts consist of an arm-wrenching amount of stuff that barely fits in shot! M&S challenged me to do a 'what's in my bag for autumn' post and rather than pick another carry-all oversized shopper, I went for this cute structured satchel.

I love the shape, it sits just perfectly on my shoulder, and it is probably doing wonders for my back as well! I hate when I have a tiny evening bag and I have to take everything out of my purse and leave it loose in the bottom, so I am pleased this fits my oversized purse in it no problems, along with my other essentials. Cutting down on my make-up was the hardest part of downsizing my bag, as I like to have it all with me regardless of the fact that all I really ever reapply during the day is concealer and lippy! Once I got over that though this really is the perfect little bag.

Ps Thanks to everyone who entered my competition with Moo - the winners are Daisy Chain, Dizzy Tea and Tora - congratulations to you! Check your email inboxes for an email from me!

I love this bag! I am definitely a big bag person too and find it hard to cut down on what I carry around but it is nice not to have aching shoulders! x

I love this bag, I usually cart round tonnes of stuff so downsizing is hard!

i do love "what's in my bag" posts, though if i ever did one there would be at least 10 lipsticks or balms or glosses in there, haha.

I like that bag a lot. I always carry a huge bag around everywhere, mostly because I usually have my camera...but I also carry the rest of my life around with me too. :)

I am so obsessed with What's in my bag posts. I love looking into other people's bags and seeing what;s in them.

Your satchel is the cutest.

What a cute bag! And it seems so much neater than mine ever are, I tend to go for the Mary Poppins bag thing...

Love the bag! I'm normally a big bag kind of gal too, but I wish I wasn't sometimes, I take way too much with me! xx

So compact and neat! My bag isn't even nearly that tidy... I wouldn't have guessed the bag was M&S either. They've got some nice stuff at the mo.

I love what's in my bag posts - your bag is lovely and I am completely the same when it comes with make up. I always carry a blotting powder with me but I never reapply ever!

What a gorgeous house! I love the kitchen and bathroom most. The wood in the bedroom is a bit heavy-handed (I'm not much of a wood person either, lol) Happy decorating.
