I’m well aware that so many people do these posts but i’m so nosey and I love to see what other people hoard around with them on a daily basis. I thought that because I’m nosey perhaps others are too and fancy taking a look into my handbag. I’m unlikely to mention these things into great detail but most girls, if not all will keep a selection of sanitary products because well, safety first. I also have a variety of clips available and a bobble or two. These are just basic and necessary products that I use on a daily basis and I like to keep just in case of emergencies. You never know when you’re going to need them. I also keep my iPhone SE with me at all times as well as my keys. I don’t go very far without either of them and I will always use the calendar on my phone to remind myself of my daily events. I’m super forgetful so if I don’t write it down, I’ll forget to go.
Firstly, let’s discuss the bag. My handbag is a River Island Limited Edition Suede Messenger bag, I paid £26 for this. Take a look here. It’s a Faux suede bag in a cross-body style with external zip pockets and a zip top fastening. It’s quite deep and can hold the useful necessities I use for my day to day lifestyle. I often use this bag everyday and will mix between the things I need everyday. However, these things are without fail always in my bag and have done whilst using my previous bags.
The first thing that I always have my purse with me. Mainly because I carry my money, university card and my bank cards with me. It’s quite an obvious object to carry around with me and It’s something I know that everybody carries with them. I will carry this with me on a daily basis, even if I don’t have any plans to spend any money but you never know if you’re going to need it. This is also a River Island bag and I paid £17 for this. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be available on the website and has possibly been discontinued.
I also always keep a selection of lipsticks, usually Mac Lovelorn, Mac Taupe and the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lip gloss in Lunch Date. Admittedly, these three lip products are always in my bag because I often forget they’re there and I often just keep them there instead of losing them. I do love these lip products though, especially the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lip gloss in Lunch Date, it’s a very natural nude lip that is basically my lip colour but better. It’s a very lightweight gloss and it’s beautiful to wear with a natural look or a glam eye.
A notepad is obviously necessary for university as I write down so much during lectures and through meetings, library sessions and general reminders. I do remove this on the weekends or if i’m taking a shopping trip though. Along with a notepad, I obviously require a pen and I usually add highlighters just in case. These are a total necessity for my lifestyle as a university student and even when i’m not a student anymore I’ll probably still carry one around. This is my current favourite, I love me a superhero or two.
My iPad is usually with me on the days i’m heading onto campus, I like to use it for assignments or reading in my free time. It’s the iPad Air and it’s perfect, light weight and easy for everyday use. I also use this to make notes in lectures if I can’t be bothered to pop out the notepad and use a pen (Usually those 9ams) or if I have forgotten the notepad.
The final thing that is always in my bag, is my my iPod and earphones. I find that music is a motivation for me and although I can’t listen to music whilst writing an assignment (I become super distracted) I do like to listen to a few songs to help motivate me into writing another. Usually something upbeat and something I can dance too, this helps to create a little bit of energy in preparation for an assignment or lecture.
