5 things you should always have in your bag

Everyone carries the basic things they need, their wallet, keys, hand gel and such but what other less basic things are missing from your bag?

No. 1
Lipstick (a girls best friend) - My personal favourite is the YSL rouge per couture in 101 Violet Singulier a beautiful and rich purple.

No. 2
Chapstick/Lip Balm - I'm always buying new chap-stick even when I have plenty already (no idea why) I literally have 3 different ones in my bag right now, but Burt's Bees in Wild Cherry is my absolute favourite. It smells delicious and is so moisturising. Perfect for those autumn and winter months. 

No. 3
PerfumeLet's face it, in order to feel good you really need to smell great. A good perfume is one of the most appealing things on another human being when they hug you or walk by you. I'm really picky with perfume because I tend to hate floral smelling ones and musky ones so my absolute favourite is Si by Armani. It's sophisticated and sweet without being too overpowering. I've re-purchased it twice so far.

No. 4
Mints - Mints might be a strange one to add but I basically mean anything you like to eat that tastes good and doesn't hurt in making your mouth smell like what I imagine rainbows would smell like if they smelt of anything at all. These little cinnamon Altoids pack a punch and are delicious. Plus the small tin is cute and takes no space in my bag.

No. 5
A book - A personal favourite, which I think speaks for itself. A book is a must have in anyones bag, or magazine (whichever you prefer) for those long journeys to keep you from having to spend the journey on the train, or bus staring out the windows at probably nothing interesting at all.

lastly, have a cute photo of my cat pretending to "sleep" when really she just wanted to steal the rose,
the little shit.



  1. Great list! I'll add a journal or notepad :)


  2. I so agree with this :) I also always have a hand sanatiser and tissues in there! xx

    Magpie Jasmine

    1. Me too! I'm always that person my friends ask me for hand gel :') xx

  3. Love this! Lipstick is a must! How adorable is your cat by the way!?

    1. Hahaha, she's so sneaky. Kept swiping out her paw and grabbing the rose.

  4. Perfect list! i'd add a camera to take photos (can't live without because sometimes my phone doesn't want to collaborate! :D)
