What's In My Handbag

What's In My Handbag - Sweetaholic Beauty

Happy Monday everyone! Even though it's my second week back at work this year, I still don't feel ready. I need a longer holiday, thanks. Today I thought I would give you a glimpse into my current handbag. I could have sworn I have done a post like this before but I couldn't find it anywhere - oh well.

The handbag itself is on the smaller side, and I picked this up from Colette a few months ago. Sadly it's no longer for sale, as it's a great little bag. Perfect size to fit everything I need, and not too heavy at all.

Everything in my handbag right now. Yeah there's a lot of stuff in there.

Of course I need my perfume; my fragrance of choice right now is the Impulse fragrance in Into Glamour* which gives a subtle yet refreshing scent. I also popped in the Avene Thermal Spring Water to give myself a spritz if I need to during these hot summer days. My doggies actually love being spritzed in the face with this too. I also have the Thank You Hand Sanitiser in my handbag as my skin gets very died out by the soaps in public bathrooms, so I use this after to help restore moisture.

Makeup wise I only have a few things. Right now my all time favourite powder makeup for on-the-go is the L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Powder Foundation. This goes on really easily with a sponge and there's even a mirror. No need for a brush or anything which makes life a lot easier. I also have a Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia for when my lips are feeling dry, and a Boe Professional lipstick that my friend Leah sent to me. It's the perfect nude for any occasion. Sadly the shade name has rubbed off. I also have a pack of bobby pins and a pair of Manicare tweezers for just in case.

As I get the train a lot, I need some distractions. I will usually take my Kindle to work with me - I just finished reading The Exorcist and am now on the lookout for a new book. I also bring my phone (of course) and my Sony headphones so that I can listen to my favourite podcasts. I also always bring a USB storage device with me just in case - you never know when you might need it.

This is a new addition to my handbag; my 2016 diary. I got this in a Halloween Swap with Jojo's Beauty. It's really handy to take this with me as I can remember to write down important dates. I also bring a little mini notebook that my friend Sophie got me in the Kris Kringle gift she sent to me. I use this to write down blog ideas and inspiration. I also have my cute Typo pen so I can write everything down.

And the essentials. I have my handy little coin purse, which is also from Colette, which stores my cards and minimal cash. I also have to bring my ventalin puffer as I suffer from asthma, and of course my house keys. I also take with me a citrine crystal which is supposed to help with money and fortune.

I really wish I could find my earlier post so that I could compare, but sadly I must have deleted it or named it something strange. I was surprised at myself for keeping my handbag so clean lately, I was half expecting more rogue lipsticks.

What's in your handbag? Is there anything in my handbag that seems odd or strange? Anything in there that you love?

  1. I'm pretty certain I don't want to do a handbag clean out. At last count, I had about 6 lippies in there. No wonder I can never find anything in it!

  2. Love these types of posts, but wow this really puts my hand bag to shame - yours is so neat and tidy! I don't even want to begin to count the amount of lip products I have in just my work bag alone! xx

  3. Wow if I did a post like this right now, it would take me a year to write it. I took a bigger bag on holiday over Christmas/ New Year and haven't bothered transferring back to my work handbag so literally my whole life is in there. Great idea for a post! <3

  8. I've got a penknife on my keys. It's got a regular & a Philips head screwdriver, nail file & scissors blade. I use it all the time. I like to keep painkillers & a purse pack of tissues too. I always carry a spare tampon & mini pad too. I don't want to get caught out if I'm early.
