My bag is a lovely purple Longchamp bag. I got it for Christmas just before I headed off to Australia last year. So I've had it just over a year and it's lasted so well! A great thing about it is that if it ever gets dirty, I can just stick it in the washing machine and it comes out brand new. I hate any kind of marks on a bag or purse (yes I'm that kind of person that inspects every detail of one until I buy it) so it's fab.
I'm also someone who hates mess in my bag, I make sure I throw all rubbish and old bus tickets away when I get home aha. And go through any receipts just so that my purse doesn't become bulky.
A Thomas Sabo 2014 diary just to keep track of any days I've got planned, appointments etc.
A Kindle! My dad kindly gave it to me as I was discussing with my mum whether to buy one or not and he mentioned that he's had one for ages and hasn't used to so I could. How nice is that?! As soon as I finished The Hunger Games, I downloaded my first Kindle eBook (I was recommended to read Divergent - such a good book!) and I haven't put it down since. Every opportunity I get before work, on the train, in the staff room - I'm reading it. It's my dad's cover so not the most exciting of covers aha but I did see a gorgeous orange and pink one online so I might just treat myself to that at some point.
And my glasses. I wear contacts more than them but I have them with me to read just incase.
My iPod and my phone. I don't know if you can tell from the photo but I unfortunately have quite a few scratches on the screen of my phone. I dropped it on the ground at the beginning of the month, tripping up a pavement in town and falling over. Luckily it wasn't in the centre but I was near traffic lights so quite a few people saw me. Oh the embarassement.
My house keys, with the cutest little keyrings. Both gifts, the cupcake was a birthday present a few years ago and the kangaroo was a Christmas present from family friends in Australia the one before I was heading off to visit them.
A little box of peppermints. On the box it says "As soon as I start thinking that I'm sensible and sane, the random hedgehod comes along and fiddles with my brain". It is the cutest thing ever, they're part of the Edward Monkton series - by the artist and poet Giles Andreae. He does all sorts of different cartoon characters on merchandise. I saw the hedgehog on a mug the other day and I know at some point I have to get that.
Apart from the mints, the only thing that's missing is some sort of sweet! I usually have chewing gum but I haven't bought any in weeks so this reminds me I need to go get some. And maybe the odd creme egg - f I had one with me now it would be long gone before the photo was taken! It is Easter after all and I'm a sucker for those little goodies.
Vaseline hand cream with pure aloe in it, smells so nice. A hygiene gell, I'm well aware they don't actually work that well so I never replace it for washing my hands, I only use it if I'm eating something sticky like sweets or a packet of crisps. And a body spray from Boots. I only recently bought that, a friend of mine had it in her bag and let me borrow some, it smelt lovely that I had to get some myself. It doesn't smell artifical like most body sprays, it's nice and refreshing. It's the Vanilla one, from the Boots own Natural Collection. There are quite a few different ones but I found that this was the nicest as it's not too strong.
Also, I'd just like to thank Becca for helping me with my layout, I love it, thank you!
