Whats In My Bag Tag

The lovely NaijaMum tagged me in this meme.

First of all, let me preface this by saying that I am an incredibly organised person, my bag just doesn't reflect this. My bag is a little bit of a 'lucky dip'. I have been known to have everything from nail varnish remover to a tape measure in my bag, ''just in case''. This is my bag on a tidy apologies in advance for the poor quality pictures, I couldn't find my camera USB and Mr Lashes's Mac doesn't take memory cards so I had to use my phone...

 My bag is a LV Artsy, it was my 2010 Christmas present from Mr Lashes...I tend to carry this when I don't want to carry much, its one of my smaller bags. I know, SMALLER! my obsession with handbags and purses is quite disturbing but like most things I don't want to accept, I keep telling myself its nothing to worry about...I'm not usually keen on such obviously branded bags but I was really drawn to this one because of its shape and Mr Lashes indulged me.


Sunglasses: When I wear my contacts, I almost always wear these, not as a fashion statement but because I hate the feeling of direct sunlight in my eyes.

Camera: I am one of those people that takes random pictures, you never know when a memory can be made, I always want to be able to capture it. My sister is always teasing me about my 'photographer' camera but whatever...:-)

iPhone: I love my iPhone. it is SERIOUSLY the best phone in the world, I don't care what anyone says. I have also got a Blackberry, which I predominantly use for work and blackberry messenger.

Purse: It is a Miu Miu purse, I can't remember the name but I got it about a year ago. It has everything in it, my bank cards, my license, my NUS card, my oystercard. My life would literally come to a complete standstill if I lost this. I went for this because of the colour, red is my favourite and I can easily find it in my bag because it stands out so much

Perfume: I'm a 3 perfume kinda girl. This is Stella McCartney's Stella. I also wear Chanel's Chance and Blvgari's Omnia. I always carry one of them in my bag, you never know when you need to smell fresh.

Koran: I'm a Muslim. I always carry this mini Koran with me because I believe it protects me. I can not read a word of what's in there but hey, its the thought that counts!!!

 Keys (out of shot): I've got a big bunch  of keys, my house keys, Mr Lashes' keys, Car keys and a whole load of other ones. No word of lie, it must weigh about half a kilo.


Hair brush and two combs: There is NO excuse for looking like you just got into a fight with a lion. I carry these about, just in case.

Lip Balm and Hand Cream: I gats control that ashyness so this is always with me. I'm about the only person in the world that thinks Vaseline is evil. Its just fancy grease.

Mini Deodorant: Self Explanatory :-)

Umbrella and Hand Sanitiser (out of shot): Its always raining in London, the most horrible thing in the world is being caught out without one or worse still, having one that turns inside out every time the wind blows, I've found a good one and I watch it like a hawk.

I have come to the conclusion that people are NASTY. They sneeze and then hold on to railings  without wiping their hands, they don't wash their hands after using the toilet then shake hands..its just wrong and my mama didn't raise no fool so I'm not trying to catch some incurable disease. I go through this stuff like its water.

Nurofen and Glasses case: As I spend about 45 hours a week glued to a computer screen, I'm constantly getting headache's so I always carry painkillers with me. My glasses case houses my contact lens case for easy changing.

Mirror and Kleenex: I need a small mirror to check my lip gloss (see below). This is a really cute heart shaped one I got from Monsoon. I have found that I hardly ever use the Kleenex, I usually offer it to people, especially when they sneeze and feel the need to carry on like they haven't expelled thousands of germs.

Lip gloss: Don't judge. I have got 7 different kinds currently in my bag. I don't touch of my makeup during the day so I usually reapply this just so I don't look washed out.

Soft mints: I hate bad breath. I think its incredibly disrespectful to someone to impose your bad dental hygiene on them so I carry these around.

So! Does my bag show exactly how superficial I am???

I think I'm one of the last people to be tagged in this so I tag anyone who already hasn't been tagged.
