What’s In My Bag? | EG

When I first started my blog in April last year, What’s In My Bag was one of the first posts I composed. I loved reading these posts, and watching similar videos on YouTube. As its been over a year since I’ve done this post, I thought I’d give you an updated version!


The bag I have is this one from River Island. This is a shoulder bag in a mink colour. It has a mostly faux suede body with a faux leather contrast and the River Island gold bar. It also has pretty tassels hanging off it and a reversible strap, which has a snakeskin pattern on one side and is baby pink on the other. The bag closes with a magnetic presstud and has a zip pocket and normal pocket on the inside. This bag cost £32, which is quite expensive, but when you think of how versatile, and how pretty it is, I can justify it.


The first things that I have in my bag are my purses. Yes that’s plural. I keep my notes and cards in my holographic purse, which is from New Look. I then keep all of my silver change in this coin purse which is also from New Look. I love the holographic purse as its so quirky, yet matches my bag perfectly. The coin purse is also so cute to carry around!


The next things that I have in my bag are my phone, my lipstick and my sunglasses. I use the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipcream  in the colour 07 ‘nude-ist’ which is a pretty red toned pink. When I bought this, I thought it would be more brown toned, but it dried quite red toned. It is a very similar colour to my nyx sleek matte lip cream in ‘Cannes’. 

I carry my phone around all of the time, obviously as I never know when I will need to google something, take a photo or contact someone. I have the silver iPhone 6 in 16gb. I got my case from h and m, mostly because it matches all of my clothes.

Even though Britain is infamous for the amount of rain we get, I like to be hopeful and carry my sunglasses with me. You never know when the sun may come out, and I guess carrying these large cat eyes from New Look is helpful ( if a bit optimistic ).

That all I carry in my bag with me! I definately used to carry a lot more. At one time, I actually used to carry an eyeshadow palette with me.

Do you guys have anything you always carry round? Are there any posts you’d like me to do?

Comment below!

Have a lovely day,

what’s in my bag? | EG♡

So today I thought that I’d share with you one of my favourite posts to read. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m nosy or not but I really enjoy these types of posts! I also like seeing what people find useful to have with them. I don’t like to carry loads in my bag as it tends to get heavy quickly so these items are what are usually in my bag from day to day.

  

My bag is a taupe kind of colour from new look. I got it for £22.99 and it is a shoulder bag, great for carrying all of my stuff! I love the colour of it because it tends to match anything I wear.

So, what’s in my bag?

I carry my iPad with me mostly for entertainment. I like to check out blogs whilst on the go or read a book. The one I’m reading on it at the moment is ‘ hurry up and wait ‘ which was free on the book store last week as it was book of the week. So far it’s very good! I also like to have my iPad with me to take pictures, mostly for my blog or because they’re just good photo opportunities!

The second thing I have is my iPhone. I’m not too bothered about carrying this around at all times, but when I know I need to reach for someone it’s nice to have it there. The case it has was £1 from primark and I love it because it’s all sparkly and whatnot. I also like to listen to my music on it. At the moment I love the weeknd, Vance Joy, Ariana Grande and Cara delevingnes cover with Will Heard.

The third things are my (very) small collection of beauty items. These consist of ‘Soap and Glory Hand Maid’ hand sanitiser ( you never know when you’ll need this ) Baby lips lip balm in ‘ pink punch ‘ and my one direction our moment perfume rollerball. I like to have this with me to top up if my perfume is fading away. Of course I have tissues. Someone always needs one, I like to be the one who has them because my friends are never prepared for it!

The next things I carry round are my fujifilm instax mini 8 and my sunglasses. I like to have my camera with me in case there’s a nice photo opportunity, you never know when it might be and I like to catch great memories with this camera as the photos seem more special. I picked these sunglasses up in Spain for €2! I thought they were a bargain! I’ve had them for nearly a year now and they still do their job perfectly!

The last thing is chocolate! I always like to have something sweet in my bag in case we go on a long journey or someone’s  hungry. Galaxy is my current favourite and I got four bars with my Easter egg so I’m making the most of them! I also like to carry water with me because it’s literally all I drink apart from tea or the rare occasion I have some lemonade.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day!
