Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


What’s in my Work Bag?

I took these photos a couple of weeks a go when I was still at work, my bag looks nothing like this at the momento. In fact I’m using a completely different bag as this one is a bit too big for every day use. My work bag is from Cath Kidston and I bought it in the sale (it’s still available here) about a month ago on a whim, I love £48 whims don’t you? It’s the perfect size for work as it’s nice and big and has lots of pockets for me to stash pens and post-it notes in.
I generally carry around a load of junk with me and it makes my bag far too heavy but that’s all a part of the fun isn’t it?
In my bag there is (clockwise):
- Umbrella (I walk to and from work so this is a necessity)
- Sunglasses
- Various make-up (5 lip products are necessary…)
- Mirror
- Tube map (I often pop to London after work)
- Business cards and train tickets
- Medicines
- Perfume in a Travalo
- Hairclip
- Fix+
- Prompt cards for the students I help
- A4 Document File with all my worksheets and stuff I’ve made for the students
- Pencil case
- Headphones & iPhone charger
- Polos/chewing gum/vitamins
- Pens/pencils/highlighters/board pen
- Memory stick
What have you got in your bag?

  1. The bit abut £48 whims made me laugh! Love this post, so fascinating to see what's inside someone else's handbag! :)


  2. So many things. Love you cath kitson bag. I like floral bag

  3. Oh I love your Cath Kidston bag! I've voted for you lovely xo

  4. Looks pretty muh like my bag for placement, though I don't have as many compartments in my bag so stationary needs to go in a pencil case and any school work will go in one of my reusable bags (not a bag for life!). And five lip products are totally necessary! ;) xo

  5. Wow, thats a lot of stuff. All completely necessary though by the sounds of it! Love your Cath Kidson bag too. Love anything Cath Kidson to be fair :) x

  6. Nice to know I'm not the only person who carries their life in their bag! I love this idea, I'll be creating a post like this soon. Thanks for sharing!


  7. You are just prepared for everything! :) Love the CK bag xo

  8. You can never have to many lip products in your bag! x

  9. I'm just here to giggle at £48 whims, with you there sister x

  10. Hahaha. Mine is just as chaotic but so much less girly. I just carry lots of tech. Thank God I've never been robbed. Everyone seems to be doing these posts at the minute, maybe I should give in and do my own...

    This is my post http://asliceofmylifewales.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/whats-in-my-handbag.html

  14. I love expensive whims too!!! xxx

  15. My bag is always full of things I don't really need. I am trying to curb this though.

  16. I LOVE your bag. It's seriously cute.

    I never leave the house without an umbrella in my bag, either. I love and collect cute compact umbrellas. I also always have a body spray with me... And I really love that you have Coke flavored lip smackers in your purse. That's awesome.
