What’s In My Bag? – Autumn Edition Collab 2017

I seriously can’t believe its nearly December!!!! This year has gone way too fast. This year I have adored Autumn & have enjoyed seeing everyone’s Autumnal themed Instagram posts & blogposts. In some ways, I don’t want Autumn to end. I Love Autumn Fashion & being able to wear my UGGS every day.

The handbag I have been using every day since the end of June 2017 is the Coach crossbody clutch handbag. I bought my Coach crossbody bag from Very Exclusiveย when it was ‘New Season’ Coach. The Coach bag cost me ยฃ175. The handbag was definitely a treat & is the first Coach handbag I have ever owned. I have wanted a Coach bag that would be suitable for everyday use for the last 5/6years, back when Coach handbags were really popular with fashion/beauty Youtubers. MeganHeartsMakeup AKA Megan Parken was the person who introduced me to the Coach brand after watching one of her videos. The Coach crossbody clutch handbag is made from soft pebbled leather & has gold toned hardware throughout. There are two separateย zipped compartments one at the front which is suitable for your phone/purse & a bigger zipped compartment at the back of the bag for your other bits & bobs. For a small bag, the Coach crossbody clutch bag has a lot of space for your essential everyday items. Check out Very Exclusive for the Coach crossbody bag (Coach Handbag Link).

This is my first ‘Whats In My Bag?’ blogpost I have ever posted. I personally love watching ‘What’s In My Bag?’ YouTube videos, I could watch them for hours!!! I also love reading ‘Whats In My Bag?’ blogpost’s too. Bella from Twitter was looking for bloggers to collab with & it was her idea to do a ‘Whats In My Bag?’ collaboration. At the bottom of this blogpost, I have linked all Bella’s Social Media links & Blog link. You should definitelyย follow Bella on all her Social Media. Bella is literally the kindest blogger you will ever follow ๐Ÿ’— Go & check out the gorgeous Bella’s Collab blogpost & show it & her lots of love!!!ย http://www.bellainizio.co.uk/handbag-essentials-winter-edition

For a small crossbody bag, I think I fit a lot of useful things into myย bag without overfilling & damaging it. The only item that isn’t in the photo above that I always have in my bag is my iPhone. I managed to get theย iPhone X on launch day & thought it would be good to try out the camera for the photos in this blogpost.

ย My favorite lipgloss brand to carry in my handbag is Barry M. The shade I have been using is called ’11-Coral’. I have a Juicy Couture rollerball perfume which contains ‘Viva La Juicy’ & ‘Viva La Juicy Gold Couture’. I think rollerball perfumes are so handy to travel with & are a perfect size for a smaller bag. I also like to have Nip + Fab’s Viper Venom Eye Fix in my bag. Nip + Fab’s Viper Venom Eye Fix is great to use if you have dark circles under your eyes. I carry around a couple of Invisibobbles in my bag because you never know when you’re going to want to put your hair up. I got a three pack of Invisibobbles last Christmas & I have only used one so far & it’s still going strong. I keep the other two Invisibobbles in my bag just in case I need to use one. I also normally keep bobby pins in my bag too, but I am always losing them!!!! I need to get to Wilko & buy some more.
ย The last few beauty products I have in my bag is ‘Wet Ones’ Be Cute antibacterial wipes, which are the perfect size for small handbags. I have a travel size Nivea Q10 hand cream in my handbag because there is nothing worse than having dry hands. I also carry plasters in my handbag. Plasters are really handy to keep in your bag just in case you get a blister.
ย The purse I have in my Coach crossbody handbag is a black grained Coach coin purse/card holder with gold hardware. I couldn’t find an exact matching soft pebbled leather purse to match my handbag, but that doesn’t really matter too much to me. I bought the purse from Harvey Nicholsย online & the purse cost ยฃ40 (Coach Purse Link). I have i.am+ buttons wireless earphones in my bag. I bought the i.am+ buttons rose gold earphones to match my rose gold iPhone 7, but now I have the iPhone X & the iPhone X doesn’t come in the shade Rose Gold whichย is a bit annoying. The i.am+ buttons are actually really good earphones they fit really well in my ears & also come with loads of different size/shape earbuds to put on so that you get a perfect fit. Other than that I carry a Hello Kitty pen in my bag & a small notebook that I got in a Birchbox X Habitat Collaboration box. Sometimes I carry snack size sweets in my bag like Haribos or Squashies. Other than that, that’s everything in my bag ๐Ÿ‘œ
What bag are you currently using??? Where did you buy your handbag??? Do you prefer crossbody handbags or shoulder bags??? I would love to know ๐Ÿ‘œ Leave me a comment & tell me what your handbag essentials are & what type of bag you use on a daily basis!!!

      Thank you ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ Designer bags are the best & they last a lot longer than other bags ๐Ÿ‘œ My fave place to go & look at designer bags is TKmaxx ๐Ÿ‘œ Me & my Mum always see who can find the best brand designer bag when we are in TKmaxx.

    I always have a lipstick lol! I think you can never go wrong with one. I also think like tissues and hand sans are so essential.

      My Mum is the same ๐Ÿ’— She can’t go anywhere without having a lipstick in her bag ๐Ÿ˜„ I prefer lipgloss or a tinted lip balm in my bag ๐Ÿ‘œ

    I feel like I switch my bags too often to be this organised ahah but wipes and plasters are a very good idea, as well as hand cream in the winter
