So I bought a new handbag a few weeks ago – the Phillip Lim 3.1 Medium Pashli in Navy – and I thought it might be fun to give you guys a sneak peek inside it so you can see what I’m carrying around with me and get an idea about just how much this bag can fit – if you’re interested!
First things first, the basics – my Smythson Card Holder, which I use to hold my debit card, metro card and work pass, my Kate Spade Coin Purse, which, surprisingly, holds my coins! Then we have my iPhone 6 Plus (yes, it’s big), my Prada Key Wallet, which keeps my keys from scratching my phone or the inside of the bag, and a notebook from Smythson which I use to jot down blog ideas, to-do lists and shopping lists – any excuse to write a list…!
I also carry round this ‘Sparkle’ pouch from Bath and Body Works, which holds a whole heap of essential items that I would not want to be without on a day to day basis – my old lady-style pill container, which has painkillers and vitamins in it, some gum, because it’s nice to have fresh, minty breath, particularly if you’ve just eaten a garlic-laden meal, a spare hair tie and some curby grips, because my hair is always a mess, a pen, and a mirror, which is the same Victoria’s Secret one that I’ve had in all of my WIMH posts I think.
Said pouch also contains a few beauty essentials, a lot of which, I’ve just realised, are from Maybelline. We have the Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Conecaler, the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder, a Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil and a Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. Everything you need for any essential touch-ups on the go.
Last up, a few more random items – my Roxy Sunglasses, in case spring decides to make an appearance any time soon, and a straw from Starbucks because I am incapable of drinking without one, without spilling all down myself. And that, ladies and gentlemen, c’est tout.
