What's In My Bag? London Edition

Had sleepless nights wondering what's in my bag? Well wonder no more!

At the weekend me and my Mum went on a trip to London. We hopped on the train early Saturday morning and stayed in a hotel over night so I had the challenge of fitting all my overnight stuff into one handbag that I had to carry round all day. As a self confessed worry packer it was quite a challenge!



The bag is a fake Mulberry that I picked up in Thailand. It wasn't cheap so it is good quality and real leather. We hunted it down because I remembered Zoella showing one in an old what's in my bag video and saying her brother got it from Thailand or Turkey. I have to admit since getting it I haven't shown it enough love because I wear so much black. I will now though, promise!


Obviously the contents isn't normal day to day stuff. I had my essentials such as my purse, tatted phone and hand gel to satisfy my germ-o-phobe side. The biggest challenge for me was make up.  I know there is a lot but I had to compromise by only taking two brushes, no highlight and an mua brow pencil instead of the sleek brow kit. I decided to leave most of my high end make up at home as I didn't want an expensive smashed foundation/eye shadow palette/blush on my hands. I can guess you beauty addicts are dying to know what Mac lipstick it is. Russian Red. Straight after I took these photos I added in a Marc Jacobs Dot perfume sample, mini deodorant, tooth brush, emergency sanitary towels, a spare pair of knickers (pants if you're American) and medication for my dietary problems.

I'm sure you are all feeling enlightened now you know the contents of my bag. What are your handbag essentials?
