What's in my Bag?


Are you nosy like me and like to see what's in people's bag well keep reading..

 I am the type of girl when it comes to handbags that there is only the things I need and nothing more, unlike the other type of girls where they bring everything and the kitchen sink!(Not a bad thing though)  I am very minimal when it comes to my handbag and I suppose that's not a bad thing and I'm the girl who seems to never have a messy bag, I usually throw receipts and papers and all sorts away the night before. So let's get in to what is exactly in my bag..

 This is my bag, it is from River Island. I believe I bought it around the end of April for €34.00 which is not that bad of a price for such good quality. It has gold tone studs all around the front of the bag and a gold hardware label branding River Island. It is a backpack style handbag which are so on trend for the past couple of months, they are so much handier than ordinary handbags as there is two straps which are also adjustable to suit you, it's an equal balance to your shoulders unlike one strap bags.

There is two pockets with gold zips which zip so smoothly, I know that like sounds weird but I find if they zip so smoothly with no pressure it means it's very good quality or maybe that's just me. There is also gold detailing along the bottom of the backpack where there is two zips which are not actually pockets there just for design of the bag. This bag is currently on sale at the moment for only €20 and I definitely recommend you go and get it, it is the perfect little bag for going out to town or just out and about. Very roomy for the things that you genuinely need, and very comfortable to carry.
Enough about the bag let's get into what is exactly in my bag.

Get the bag here: https://eu.riverisland.com/women/bags--purses/backpacks/white-studded-mini-backpack


Purse

The first thing you will see if you peek into my bag is my purse, it takes up the most space but it is a must! (Well if your like me and always shopping!) I only found this recently at the bottom of my wardrobe and I forgot I even had it and I love it. I feel like it is bright and perfect for summer(But who even looks at your purse, at least I know it's cute) It is from River Island and I believe it was €25.00. Sadly it was bought ages ago and is no longer available. It is black but the main part of the purse is the bright, neon yellow which features in the rim of the purse and detailing across the body of the purse and a tassel hanging from the purse with a gold tone RI sign branding river island.


Makeup Bag

Next up is the second biggest thing in my bag which is my make-up bag, now I don't always bring this with me but if I'm going out somewhere and I know I'll be out all day then I will need to bring this with me. It is from Penneys/Primark and I got this ages ago but it is so cutee! It is the perfect size for everyday products and I love it! 

And the products I carry in this are..

Concealer: Rimmel "Wake Me Up", my top favorite concealer I have went through 5 tubes of this, it is the perfect shade for me, I'm in the shade True Ivory. I just bring this just in case I need to fix my makeup! You have probably heard of this and it's matching foundation. 


Real techniques complexion sponge: Can you believe I only purchased this about a month and a half ago and I'm in love! I always used a buffing brush to blend my foundation and after I picked this up I did not go back. It is a must! I just bring this to blend in my concealer if I need to fix up my makeup throughout the day.  


Powder: Rimmel "Stay Matte Powder", Don't know what to say about this really all it does is sets my foundation and concealer and does a pretty good job! I just use the transparent shade. I bring this to touch up on my makeup throughout the day and definitely my must need product always in my bag. 



Mascara: Rimmel "Lash Sensational" All I can say about this is GO AND GET IT if you haven't already! The best mascara ever. Just in case I need to apply more mascara if I'm touching up my makeup! 


Highlighter: Too faced "You light up my life". Because why wouldn't this be in your makeup bag, you gotta put more highlighter on your face when your touching up your makeup if your like me. More highlight the better! 


Lipstick

Your probably wondering why this isn't in my makeup bag, well because I usually throw it in my bag the minute before I head out the door and I like to be able to grab it to reapply it easily if I'm in a rush cause your girl needs her lipstick on all the time! Mac "Velvet Teddy" As you can see it is nearly gone. 



Perfume

Need this everywhere I go well if I don't forget it. This is Marc Jacobs Honey and the bottle is just the cutest thing I've ever seen it's showing a bee at the gold branding and the cap of the bottle is a yellow and white polka dot design. It is a floral, fruity fragrance. 


Sunglasses

Pretty much straight forward need them if it's sunny out but chances are I don't need them because it's Ireland but I always bring them just in case! These are from Aluxe by Rosie Connolly. 


Plasters

Yes I'm the girl who brings the plasters. I bought a pair of River Island shoes and they kept giving me pains at the back of my ankle so I bought these straight after town and they have stayed in my bag ever since just in case. 



Hand cream

And last but not least is my handy EOS hand cream. Yep does the job at cleaning my hands and all that good stuff. 




So that's everything in my bag. Hope you enjoyed peeking about in my bag and let me know down below what type of bag carrier are you? See you guys in my next post!
