Watching ‘What’s in my bag’ youtube vlogs is one of my favourite things to do. It’s my guiltiest pleasure. Hours, days, weeks have been lost down this YouTube rabbit hole. So, in a desperate attempt to make this constructive, I’ve decided to do my own version just for you (ain’t you lucky).
I envy every girl/woman/man/sheep that can carry around one of those tiny envelopes of a bag. I’ve tried, believe me, I’ve really tried to carry something so small, but it just doesn’t fit with me. Maybe it’s just because I like to be organised, but also because I’m super terrified that my make up will somehow melt off, my hair will become tangled and my phone will lose battery just as I meet the love of my life. He’ll walk on by this scarecrow of a girl with dimpled cheeks that resemble Ronald McDonald and I wouldn’t even be able to check my phone to see if he had Happen.
So, with that in mind I’ll try and keep this as short and as sweet as I can. Here, ladies and gentlemen is what I take in my bag when I’m going for dinner.
Well, half of an umbrella. It no longer has a handle. Sad story really, not quite over it yet.
Obviously, need this when I go out. Doesn’t often have any cash in it though. But, a girl can dream right?
I can’t go anywhere without make-up. I can’t even pretend that I’m not high maintenance when it comes to make-up. This is what takes up the most space. I usually reduce it down to a few essentials and my favourite products:
Mascara, Foundation, Liquid Eyeliner, Lipstick, Real Techniques Foundation Brush,
What did we do before these were invented, like seriously? How did we survive.
I often wear half of my hair up and half of it down. A bit of height at the top makes your face look thinner, in this department, I need all the help I can get.
Portable Phone Charger
I dropped my phone down the toilet in work. Somehow it survived but it likes to cut out at about 50% so, this is the most essential item.
I’m too obsessed with my phone. Help.
Hemp hand cream from the body shop is the best ever, I used to be a hairdresser and this saved my life many times.
I’m a journalist don’t you know (LOL).
I take dental hygiene very seriously.
So, yeah. That’s what’s in my bag. I hope I’ve enlightened you, given you a little more insight to me and my life. Sadly, I never have anything in there that’s unusual. You won’t find any old receipts, any chocolate bar wrappers, any loose change, I never get that nice little surprise of finding a fiver. It’s a dull life being organised.
Until next time, peace and kisses
