What’s In My Handbag?

Part of the pre-Christmas ritual is cleaning and organising everything. Today was the turn of the handbag, where I threw out about a mile and a half of receipts (and those f*cking annoying coupons that print out at Sainsbury’s- there are so many of them!) and organised it back into something that resembles order.

So, here it is

The handbag is from P.A.P Sweden and is the Emma model sold here for €399. I got mine on Monoqi which is a design led flash sale site.

Headphones are Sennheiser Momentum which are available at Currys for £149 here but I can’t find them on the Sennheiser website. I try to take headphones everywhere. These are my main pair, but I also have a pair on in ear ones. Not really a fan of in ear ones though, makes me feel a bit icky.

Purse is ages old- a navy blue Salvatore Ferragamo. Just had a search to see if they have anything remotely similar on sale any more- they don’t!

I carry a leather pencil case with five pens in it- two fountain pens, (one Cross and one Mont Blanc), two ballpoints (one Cross and one Rotring Pro) and a Papermate Flair felt tip style pen. All to write in my  Smythson book- it’s been being carried around for four years, so it is slightly worn but I love it regardless. I don’t think they sell the one with “Reach for the Stars” on it anymore, but they have a big selection of other ones here.

I always carry some mints, these are the coffee mints from Starbucks. They don’t sell them in the UK, so I stash up when in the US. The tin is just a handier way to carry them in your handbag. I usually carry whatever book I am reading at the time, just in case there is an opportunity somewhere to read. Unfortunately it often means that my books end up rather dog-eared. Latest book is “Blink” by Malcolm Gladwell.

I always have my sunglasses with me, even though I wear glasses most of the time nowadays. They’re not prescription, but I do love them. They are Dolce and Gabbana and the model number is 2075. I can’t find them in the UK (I bought them in the US) but they are here on their site.

In my Orla Kiely bag (from Target here) I have a Mac Mascara (Upward Lash), a Mac Lipstick (Velvet Teddy), L’Occitane hand cream (it is the best- I have the large and the travel sizes) and lip balm (Natural Shea Ultra Rich) and Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream. I also have a travel perfume- I don’t wear this scent normally, so it is for emergencies only-it’s a Chloe rollerball perfume. I have only ever seen them in Sephora though. I also have a Sephora mirror (which came with a gift voucher but is really useful!)
