What's In My Bag

Hello people of the internet! Not going to lie, I've wanted to do a post like this since I started my blog. I can't think of a good reason why I haven't yet. Today's the day though! I recently purchased this beautiful, big bag. I saw it in Penneys(Primark) months ago and it finally went on sale for only €5. Dan was nice enough to buy it for me. It's the best! It fit my camera and everything else comfortably.

The bag itself has three main sections. The middle section has a zipper and the whole bag closes with the magnetic clip. I love the square detailing along the front of the bag and the gold accents. It has large handles but it also came with a detachable strap. It's adjustable and quite long.

  1. Phone: I'm pretty much surgically attached to my phone (who isn't). I'm a social media addict and I love being able to browse at any given moment. 
  2. Sunglasses: At any given moment I have at least two pairs of sunglasses in there. You never know if you'll want to go for a different vibe. 
  3. Camera: Obviously, it's not in the picture because.. well, you know! I have a Nikon Coolpix L820. It's a bridge camera and possibly, the love of my life. I use it to take all of my blog pictures! If you're in the market for a camera that's affordable, easy to use, and takes beautiful pictures; this is it!
  4. Passport: You never know when you're going to go out for a drink or if you're going to be buying some in the shop. Right after I turned 18, I feel like I never got ID'D. In the past year though it's been constant. I just bring it everywhere to save me the hassle.
  5. Inhaler: I have shitty lungs.
  6. Pens: I think I found ten pens in my bag while doing this post. I need to have different colored and styles of pens at all times!
  7. Change: Even though I don't always have "real" money in my bag; I do always have an absurd amount of change jingling around the bottom of it.
  8. Lip Products: This kind of goes along with the sunglasses issue. I like to have the option to change my look at flick of a switch. I usually have 3-4 different lip products ready to help me do that!
  9. Body Spray: Sometimes you get stinky! I love using So...? Kiss Me and So...? Sexy. I always get so many compliments on the scent. 
  10. Mirror: Pretty obvious!
  11. Notebook: Sometimes when I'm out and bout I get these like, creativity attacks. I need to write down post ideas, picture ideas, or just a thought instantly, I hate writing stuff in the note pad on my phone. I always just leave it and never look at it again. Notebooks are the way to go! Plus, I can doodle in them too.

  2. I love that bag... We have such a smelly Penneys, we never seem to get nice things in the one near me. Unlike you, I never remember to stash my sunglasses in my bag, forever squinting! I do always have an amount of change and a couple of notebooks in there though!


  3. I'm with you on the lip products! I pulled out 8 different lipglosses the last time I done a clear out!
