What's In My Handbag...

Money Supermarket have done it again! 

For the last few days I've been reading lots of these "What's In My Handbag" posts and knew I had to write one for two reasons: 1) I've never written one before and 2) Money Supermarket are giving us bloggers the chance to bag (no pun intended!) a Mulberry Bayswater, a Mulberry Continental Purse and a Mulberry Phone Cover in the colour of your choice. Talk about a girls dream competition! I've been a huge fan of Mulberry for such a long time and if you read my "Designer Handbag Lust List" you might have seen that this was one of the bags I have been lusting after for quite a while now. 

So with that little introduction, lets take a look into my handbag...
First up is the bag itself (sorry the image isn't very good). I've been looking for a monochrome bag for so long now and finally, whilst out shopping last weekend, I picked up this gorgeous tote style bag from New Look and what's even better is it only cost me £14.99 meaning when the monochrome trend fades, I won't feel guilty about not using it. The shape of the bag reminds me of the Celine which I absolutely love! The only downside to the bag is there are no inside compartments but that doesn't really bother me because I managed to come up with a solution to this. 
As you can see there is plenty of room in the bag for all of your necessities and whatever other junk necessities we must carry. I'd definitely say the bag looks more Zara than New Look so if you're after a bargain monochrome bag then this is for you. 
This is the purse I have been using for the past few months, I had wanted a new purse for a quite a while as the clasp on mine had broke but I couldn't find one I liked but then my mam bought me this Cath Kidston one for Christmas (unfortunately I'm not sure how much it cost but I'd guess around £20) and I love it - it's the perfect size with lots of compartments. 
Inside of my purse I keep some cash and change, my cards which include my student discount, my boots advantage card and my gym membership and as you can see there are lots of compartments.
I also keep a set of earphones in my bag for when I need escapism or just something to keep me occupied, my keys and my iPhone - I've only pictured the case because I use my phone to take my pictures, you can find this case on Amazon for about £10-£15. 
Wherever I go, I always take this mini Cath Kidston Make Up Bag with me (again, I'm unsure of the price because I won it) as it is perfect for holding my daily touch ups. Inside this make up bag, I currently have my MAC Mineralise Skin Finish (£20.50), a Collection Concealer (£4.19), a Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in shade 101 (£5.45), a Benefit Waterproof Eyeliner (£15) and two RT make up brushes for touch ups. 
I also carry my Tangle Teezer with me wherever I go as I have quite thick, long hair which can be a nightmare to brush but I find this does the job perfectly and is so gentle. I also carry my Marc Jacobs Daisy miniature with  me for top ups throughout the day.
If doesn't matter if I'm going to sixth form, or going shopping, I always take this silver make up bag with me - it isn't the most attractive bag but its perfect for what I use it for. Inside this bag, I store my vitamins, paracetamol, plasters, hand sanitiser, hair bobbles and all sorts of other little bits and pieces. I picked this up a couple of years ago from Superdrug for about £2 as I knew that this is what I was going to use it for so it didn't need to be anything flashy.

Finally, I always carry an umbrella with me as I live in the UK and as everyone knows you never know when it's going to rain and I also carry a little notebook just in case I need to write something down. 

Altogether, I would say the contents of handbag on a day to day basis adds up to around £150-£200 which is quite a lot of money considering the actual bag was only £14.99!

I would definitely encourage everyone to write one of these posts as you have nothing to lose and the prizes are amazing!

    1. I love the fact the Tangle Teezer doubles up as a mirror - I got mine from my hairdressers but I'm sure you'll find them in Boots.

    1. I got mine for Christmas, my mam bought me it from my hairdressers so I'm not sure if they were limited edition but if you can find one it is beautiful. They also had a gold one!
