I'm jumping on the bandwagon and doing a 'What's inside my bag' post.
I got this bag as a present for Christmas from my mam, it was from style 369 and was a steal in the sale for just £12. This bag is HUGE and it's always full when I go to work with magazines to read on the bus and my packed lunch but I took this photo before I went shopping on my day off so it's a little less full than usual.
I always have my Young Persons Rail Card in my bag, I live in the middle of nowhere so I have to get a train to civilization everyday and this card saves me a 1/3 on my ticket.
I have a headhog brush which I've had for aaages, I wash it with shampoo and remove hairs once a week and apparently it's the same one that the Queen uses.
My umbrella is from Primark and I thought it was very Cath Kidston-esque and it was only about £3.
My purse is from Accessorize and I picked it up in the sale, it's the prefect size for a few cards and coins.
I love my 20gb ipod, I use it a bit like an external hard drive too so it's got all sorts on there but mainly Morrissey, Mystery Jets and Maccabees songs.
The diary is from Cath Kidston and was a gift from my brother, I couldn't function without my diary I'm so forgetful! My shifts change all the time so I can keep track of them with my little diary. My keyring is also from Cath Kidston, noticing a theme yet? :)
My make up bag is a cheap Primark buy, it's just like the Cath Kidston oil cloth ones but only cost me £1.50. Here's what's inside...
I use Lancome Art Liner liquid liner, hypnose mascara and their eyeliner. They all have great staying power and are well worth the money.
I love my Chanel powder, I got it free with all my Boots points which is great because I would never pay £30 for powder.
I use mac concealer because it's so creamy and blends in well and I got the lipstick free when I took in old packaging to be recycled, I think that's a great scheme and more make up brands should do it. It's a very boring nude colour but I like it because it looks quite 60s.
The YSL foundation was a bit of an impulse buy but it the best make up item I've ever bought. It comes with a built in brush and it's called Perfect Touch.
The Lipstick and eye primer are both Urban Decay. The lipstick is another boring shade, just a light pink. The primer is great and really helps my make up stay on all day in work. I've had it for over a year and there is still plenty left.
I left out all the receipts and bus tickets that were in my bag because that's not very interesting unless you want to know that I bought orange juice 3 weeks ago ;) What do you have in your bag? Do you carry everything around with you like me or do you only carry the essentials?
I wrote a guest post on Lucy's blog Vintage Cardiff about charity shops in Whitchurch. It's a great blog for you to check out.
