What's in my Bag?

Hello Everyone!
  So today I'm going to be sharing with you all what's in my bag- I recently got another bag to add to my collection and thought it was a good time to actually do this post (I'm lusting over this bag!)

  I did a 'What's in my bag?' post a while back now and although I switch my bags quite frequently I don't want to keep doing this posts on my blog as I feel they will get quite repetitive but every once in a while when I actually buy a bag I really like this post will pop up on my blog.

  I bought this bag from Ebay for around £20.00 so it wasn't too expensive, I just loved the shape of the bag and the studded detail on the sides as it's something a little different but I've literally fallen in love with this bag. The bag comes in around 6 colours- Black, Tan, Beige, Navy, Red and Pink but black was always going to be the one I picked as it goes with everything. The gold hardware is also something I really like as I think it sets the black studs off perfectly. The bag is actually quite a good size as it fits a lot in which you will see in this post but I feel this bag is also the perfect size to use for work and on a weekend. You do get a large strap with this bag but I feel it ruins the bag so I decided to just stick to the small strap.

  This is the purse I'm currently using and it's definitely one of my favourites. I bought this on Ebay by winning a bid for it and I'm sure I got it for like £35 which was a steal! It's not in the best of conditions but it was definitely worth the money. The purse is huge inside and fits so much in, I have to say  I don't carry money around with me really as I stick to just using my card but I love having a massive purse as small ones just don't seem to suite me but I keep trying to use the small purses. The tartan pattern on the purse is one of the things which drew me to the purse and I just love the colours as I think they fit perfectly.

  I have a mini make-up bag in my bag for my essentials like powder and a brush but I thought I would just show you a few things I've been loving which I have in my make-up bag. I have a Nivea lip butter in Cocoa which is one of my favourites and I just love these lip butters as they are perfect to moisturise my lips when I'm at work but I do hate how it's in a tin as it's not very hygienic but it is very compact. I then have another lip balm which is another tin form but this is Rosie & Co Vanilla salve and I bought a set of these from Asos and I just love the packaging and this smells so lovely with the honey and vanilla it's perfect. I then have a Revlon lip butter in 001 Pink Truffle which is one of my favourite shades in the lip butter collection and I feel these are better for work as when I touch up it's not too noticeable which is what I like as I don't want people to know I've nipped to the toilet on my lunch break to touch up my make-up.

  These two things here are my new loves (Apart from the bag) but I'm going to do a full review on my blog I think so I will just put the basics here- These are perfume oils which are supposed to last longer than perfume and I decided to give them a try. The one on the left is Tom Ford's Black Orchid which is a perfume I've wanted to try for months but I was always pushed away by the price as if I didn't fully like the scent it would be a waste but I picked it up when I saw it in this form. The one on the right is YSL Black Opium which is another perfume I've wanted to buy for a while so I picked it up, I literally love these as they are so compact and both smell incredible and the best thing is they last all day with no need to re-apply unless you want to.

  The next thing in my bag is like everyone else on the planet but my phone, I have the Iphone 5S in Gold which is currently on contract and I'm waiting for the day I can upgrade but I do like this phone. I use my phone on a regular basis to text Luke, check social media or listen to music. My phone case is from Ebay and it's all the Disney characters as Tsum Tsums (Google if your not sure what that is!) I just find this case so cute and it's the silicone ones so it doesn't get scratched or anything like that- It was so inexpensive too.

  The next thing I have in my bag is a book, I try to read as much as I can but I have to say recently I've been lacking but I'm currently reading The Selection by Kiera Cass which is a story I wouldn't really normally go for as I stick to romantic/ Young Adult books but this has always been a book I've wanted to read. The cover is kind of the reason I've bought each book as the covers are so stunning but the concept of this book is girls over 16 sign up to become a 'Princess' and they get put into a house with the prince and a selection of other girls and you just follow the main character America's experience I think I'm only around 6 chapters in so I have a while yet but I'm really enjoying it so far.

  The last thing I have in my bag is my glasses, I recently got my eyes tested and well I have difficulties seeing far distance so for driving and stuff I have to wear glasses, I bought 2 pairs but these are definitely my favourite and well I haven't worn them for a while which is bad but it's nice sometimes to keep them off. These are a tortoise shell pattern and I just feel this shape suits my face better and I just love these glasses.
