a spoonful of sugar..

Day 26 of the FBLogger challenge is a 'what's in your bag?' post. I know I've done one in the past, but it's been a while, so I thought I may as well have another go.

I tend to find I switch between a few main day-to-day bags; I'll use one for a month or so and then switch to another of my larger sized ones. If I'm just popping out to the shops or something I usually use a much smaller clutch or crossover strap bag. This one is from New Look a few years ago.

Inside it lives:
  • my diary, I get a new one every Xmas, this one was from Paperchase and literally if it doesn't go in this, it doesn't happen.
  • tissues - given to me by mum when I went there this week 
  • sunglasses
  • letters I'm writing, and the ones I'm responding to
  • phone
  • purse, mainly full of receipts
  • lip balm, mascara and eye shadow
  • 4head headache rub
  • 2x pens
  • barcode scanner
  • keys - much to the amusement of everyone I know, I keep them all on one big set, so I can't possibly lose them 
What are your essentials? 


  1. I love this! Pleased to see I'm not the only one that writes letters still. Though, you've just reminded me I really do need to catch up with my letter writing. I write to my uni friend Nicola and I have so much to tell her!
