What's in my Handbag

Hey guys and gals, I hope that you're all doing well?!

I've always loved nosey-ing through these sorts of posts, I don't really know what it is that's so comforting about looking through someone else's bag, but I really do love it so much so, that I thought that today would be a perfect day to let you guys have a peak through mine;

I hope that you enjoy!

So firstly I guess I'd better tell you what little I know about the bag itself. Its made by the brand GiGi and its real, that really is all I know, hhaa...this is awkward, I can't even remember exactly how much it was, as it was a gift from my mum early last year, which she kindly bought for me as a 21st birthday gift, when we both went shopping together. Whats more, is that I'm not even sure of which shops they sell this brand of handbag in, we just found it sitting in the window of a little independent (I think) handbag boutique store, I have however managed to find a pretty close match to it online here, if you are at all interested :)

Now starting from left to right, row by row, i'll go though the goodies which can be found in my bag.

Make-up Bag
I have so much love for this little make-up bag, not because I think that its particularly glam, but because its ridiculously cute (well I think so anyway). Its by the brand Dickens and Jones, they sell all sorts of goodies, from women's clothing to home-ware all the way through to luggage and accessories. Unfortunately they don't actually sell this exact one any more, I purchased it right at the beginning of this year in the sale, but I'm sure that they'll have a few other designs over there if you were to have a look.
If you'd like to see a post on what I tend to take with me in my out and about make-up bag, please don't hesitate to ask in the comments down below.

These sunnies are just some cheap one's which I bought from Newlook at the beginning of the summer, at £3.99 they were such a bargain, and it definitely showed me that if you look hard enough, you don't always have to spend a huge amount to bag yourself a decent pair of sunglasses, I've pretty much lived in these!

Now, as you can probably tell from the image above, this purse is a pretty old one, it was yet another gift around 2 years ago, maybe more..and for that reason once again, I can't find it online...not doing very well here are we?! :( But I do however have a link, which will take you to the shop which it was purchased from, they have both handbags and purses to eyeball though! 

Mmmm. This Molecule 01 fragrance by Escentric Molecules is just incredible, I ordered the 30ml travel size, which actually comes with a very sturdy yet stylish case, which makes it sooo easy to just chuck into your bag whenever you're on the go, and as the fragrance doesn't come with a lid, I'd definitely recommend using it. After a minute or two of spritzing it onto your skin, you wont be able to smell it on yourself at all, yet others around you will. I believe that this one really works along with your natural scent, so it really could be a hit or miss... but all I've gotten from wearing it so far are amazing compliments from people asking which fragrance I'm wearing. It's just such a strange thing, not being able to smell it yourself but instead relying on others to tell you that you do in fact smell half decent ahaa!

This is the Vaseline Limited Edition No3 Paint the Town Red Lip Tint. Whoah, need a breather now.. that is such a long name! I love this stuff. If you'd like to see a full review which I posted a while back now, please do click here :)

Tangle Teezer
Since owning one of these little jems, I havent once gone back to using a regular hairbrush, they just get the tangles out of your hair sooo effortlessly, and I've seen a lot less damage to my hair as a result - which without mentioning anything else is fantastic in itself! 

Lady Hygiene
I don't really need to explain the tampons, do I? *Awkward pause...*

...Anyway moving on..

I actually got the little tin free with a pack of Always Sanitary Towels, it a perfect fit too if you'd like to take a pad out and about with you during that wonderful time of the month.

Ahhh, Flexitol. This stuff has saved my fingers on so many occasions, that its not even funny any more! If you're prone to split nails, flakey cuticles or even slight discolouration I've noticed, honestly give this stuff a shot, it normally gets my nails looking noticeably healthier and physically stronger within I'd say 2 days, used twice or three times daily. If you'd like to see a full review with photographs, please be sure to let me know!

So that's it, the contents of my handbag.
I hope that you enjoyed having a nosey through :)



  1. I love these types of posts! I need to get myself a new bag as mine isn't big enough and I need to start carrying a makeup bag around with me!

    1. Ahaa, I can totally relate to that, I've only really started using this bag religiously during the past month, before this one I was using a bag which I literally could only fit my purse, my phone and maybe a lipgloss in, gotta admit though, I do kinda miss carrying around a lighter bag sometimes!

      Thank you so much for your comment,
      I love your blog alot xx

  2. This was a fun post! They are always interesting having a peek into other people's lives/handbags! Your makeup bag is super cute.

  3. You should definitely do a post on Flexitol if you want to. I always get split nails and I know that many people have the same problem and your makeup bag is super adorable. Posts like this are always fun to read for some reason :)

    1. Yes I think that I will, I know what a nightmare split nails can be, they kinda suck :-( and if it helps other people, then that's all that matters :-D
