Other: What's In My Handbag?

I love reading posts other bloggers post about what they have in their handbag so I thought I'd hop on the bandwagon and have a go myself. I did take out some of the rubbish from my bag that you didn't need to see, like receipt's and womanly things so it isn't entirely accurate but the rest is shoved into my bag on a daily basis.

So, let's see what is in my bag!
Firstly, the bag I use every day is my Alexander Wang Rocco Bag Look-a-Like from eBay. I wrote a blog post about it a while ago and you can read that here. I absolutely adore this bag. Well, I did until I went into Harvey Nichols in Bristol last week and saw a genuine Alexander Wang Rocco bag.. Until I can justify £795 on a bag I'll still keep with my look-a-likey and luckily it can fit quite a lot of things in it..
The most important thing in my bag is my purse. I bought this purse in New York last year from Victoria's Secret and as much as I like it, my coins slip out due to the big gap underneath the sides in the coin compartment so I'm convinced I've lost a few pounds here and there over the last year but at least it's a nice purse to fall out from.
Two other joint most important things in my bag are my phone and my iPod. I'm not entirely sure why I carry my phone around with me all the time as hardly anyone texts me and the only person who rings me is my mum telling me off so I guess it's for emergencies and no doubt the time when I don't go out without it is the time that I'll need it the most. For anyone who is wondering, I have the Blackberry 8900 and I love it very much.
I never go anywhere without my iPod either as I do suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and I find that it calms me down if I just stick my head phones in and listen to some Adele. (Or One Direction!) Also it has Temple Run on there so if I ever get stuck anywhere, at least I'll have a never-ending game to contend with.
Also, on some days, I carry around make-up with me. I only do this when I'm going out for the day or going somewhere special, I don't take it round the shops with me or to walk the dog. When I do take it with me, I take it in this adorable little make-up bag which I bought from Topshop for about £3 in the January sales. My little make-up bag contains..
- Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory (Review here)
- L'oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim Eyeliner in Black (Review here)
- AVON Super Full Mascara in Black
- MUA Blusher in Shade 3 (Review here)
- MUA Lipstick in Shade 15 Juicy (Review here)
- Collection 2000 Highlighter in Maldives (Review here)

The other un-photographed items in my bags are..
A nail file: My nails always seem to break when I've gone out for the day. Usually when I'm at my Nan's house and my Nan is probably one of the few women in Britain who doesn't own a nail file.

A bottle of water: I cannot stand the feeling of being thirsty so I carry a little bottle of water around with me to ensure I stay hydrated throughout my travels.

Anti-bacterial hand cream: I suffer really badly with dry skin around my knuckles during harsh weather so at the moment I seem to be using an awful lot of the stuff.

Anti-bacterial gel: You never know what you may touch. Whenever I leave public toilets I use a quick squirt of this gel as the thought of people not washing their hands after going to the toilet and touching all of the door handles on the way out makes me shiver.

A mirror: To check I don't have lipstick on my teeth during my trips out.

Plasters: Whenever I'm out with friends one of them is usually always in need of a plaster so I hand these badboys out like I'm Willy Wonka.

Eye-drops: When I have hayfever I suffer terribly with itchy eyes so I carry eye-drops around with me to help stop me ruining my make-up in public.

Inhaler: I have asthma so this little blue bottle is a life saver.

Chewing gum: It tastes yummy.

Other things that I have in my bag are:

Tic Tacs: Yum yum.

Bach Rescue Remedy: This is to help my anxiety (was a life saver on the plane to Cyprus) and I do believe that it works so I take it everywhere with me just in case. It does taste god awful though.

I think that's all I have in my bag.. Today I have a bag of M&S foam bananas in there but there was no point in my photographing that as they won't be around for long. What do you have in your bags?
