Perhaps it’s because I’m a girl and probably have a gene embedded into me that simply loves being nosey, or perhaps it’s because mine are always a tip- but I’m a sucker for a ‘what’s in my bag’ post. Although usually minus the crumbs, travel card receipts and packets of plasters (all for aesthetic pleasure, of course) I find they’re an awesome way of getting a little peek into the real daily essentials people swear by, as well as telling you a little more about it’s owner (minus their unorganised side, of course).
No matter where I’m off to, it seems always necessary to carry a bag big enough to carry pretty much all of my worldly goods. I’m talking an umbrella in case of adverse weather, snacks for grazing, a magazine for train journeys and a camera, because y’know- gotta get outfit posts sometimes! It seems that if I take anything smaller than the gorgeous K Vintage, I end up with either a tote or paper bag by my side; it really is amazing how much one can acquire during a day at work.
Above I’ve snapped pretty much what I always have with me; from my trusty Rose Vaseline, Bobbi Brown (or Rimmel/Topshop) lipstick and Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream- to the latest issue of Another Man (if only for the cover interview, ahem). Other essentials include a notebook and pen (if lists are of any importance to you, you’ll know why this is an essential), purse and Oyster card, camera (depending on where I’m heading), phone with adorable Iconemesis case, sunnies (in case a sudden case of tiredness occurs) and headphones; because train journeys absolutely need music.
Plus, the lovely people over at Folli Follie have also given all readers of my blog the chance to win their very own K Vintage bag simply by heading over here– easy right? The bag has quickly become a staple in mine (and my mums) wardrobes and not only fits everything inside- but looks pretty gorgeous at that too. Good luck!
