So, I'm a bit of a mix of emotions today - my gorgeous Lulu Guinness handbag has spontaneously combust on me! I was happily strolling along yesterday and felt something hit my foot... the blooming clasp that closed the bag had taken a dive and I couldn't reattach it. As I've only had the bag for 4 months I decided to send my tale of woe direct to the source so pinged a grovelling email to Lulu Guinness. Imagine my surprise when I got a response today telling me to send the bag back to them so that they can fix it or replace it - I'm really pleased and can't wait to have it back all fighting fit again!
Due to my handbag malfunction I'm currently I'm sitting on the floor with one of my replacement handbags going through all the crap that I lug around with me on a daily basis - I really do carry a lot of STUFF!
This got me thinking about the sensible things that I should take with me, so in true blogger style I've collected together the following essentials and stuck them here for your perusal - enjoy:
So where do all these lovely bits and bobs come from...
1.Jaeger Daisy Print Bag - £99
2.Waldo Pancake Hairbrush & Comb Set - £6.50
3.Pretty City London Leather Wallet - £22
4.The Bright Side Address Book - £8.50
5.Rob Ryan Cosmetic Bag - £18
6.Moomin Compact Mirror - £7
7.Sugar Hotel Panda-Saur Badge - £0.80

10.D&G Cut Out Keyring - £65
11.Mr Sneeze Tissues - £1.20
12.Stabo Leather Camera Travel Card Holder - £7
The bits that I can't live without are probably the travel card holder as living in London you always need your cards handy for the tube and overground trains. Also a small hairbrush is a must have, especially as the rain makes my hair all frizzy and mad. Always have lip gloss handy as it's one of the quickest ways to make yourself look a little bit made-up, that and eye-liner Tissues and hand cream are no-brainers as I always need a bloomin' tissue and I constantly keep my hands topped up with Soap and Glory joy, not only does it make my hands nice and soft, but it smells of pure loveliness!
What do you keep in your handbag, is it all actually important? Maybe you should have a clear-out too... your shoulders will thank you! :)
