My lovely sister got me a very generous River Island voucher for my birthday as I love their handbags and always buy mine there. Normally I go for large slouchy black handbags, that I can throw everything under the sun into and never have to empty. This time I went for a very different choice, with a structured leather look satchel bag. It's so cute and although it fits plenty it's neat look makes me want to keep it neat inside too. The bag was €45 so I had enough left over on my voucher to get a matching purse too (€22). Instead of just sharing new bag I thought I'd do a what's in my bag post. I love these kind of posts, like home tour posts, it's fun to be a little nosy. As it's a new bag I currently only have what I actually need in it so I didn't need to hide loads of wrappers and receipts for a change.
Hair Care: I always always have my Tangle Teaser (€15.99 in Boots) in my bag, I truly don't know how I managed my unruly hair before I had one of these, it's a knotty hair girls essential. After my hair is tangle free I keep a cute bow hair tie from Peaches & Cream to throw my hair up out of my face.
Beauty: I normally don't wear makeup for work, but if I do it's a simple look with just 3 products that fit easily into my bag: Smashbox BB cream (€34 in Boots), a dab of cream blusher robbed from my sister) and some mascara (this one is from No7). This BB cream is amazing, I find the coverage good while still looking very natural, it feels lightweight and has SPF 35 which is always a bonus. Perfume is important to have in my bag because I like to smell nice even after a long day, at the moment I have a sample of Jimmy Choo Blossom (much handier than dragging around a full bottle).
Stationary: As I'm still in college I often need something for taking notes and this glittery notebook from Primark (€2.50) is so much cuter than a plain old refill pad. The pink pen I picked up in Tiger for a euro. Lastly and not at all stationary related is my phone with my amazing chocolate bar cover (€2) from Tiger,
So that's what I drag around in my bag on a daily basis, if you've done one of these posts let me know I love reading them!
