What's in My Bag?

26 August 2015

I've seen quite a few people do posts like this and I think they work because people are just naturally stickybeaks. (do people say that outside of Australia??) They're nosey. In fact I think that's why my blog does so well amongst the general people I know. But I love it! I'm nosey too, I'll be the first to open cupboards and drawers, what am I looking for? Nothing! I don't know I'm just looking! 

Here's what's in my bag! 

Status Anxiety Wallet - One of my precious brown leather babies, it is the perfect size to carry all my cards and cash. I will likely only ever buy my wallets from this designer from now on. I guess unless I find something better. 

A Small Pack of Tissues - Seriously my nose is runny all year round. My bag usually ends up just filled with half used tissues. It's currently clean, but inevitable.

Tampons - Hey did it ever kill you to be prepared? The boy scouts were onto something there.

Ear Care Antiseptic Spray - If you read my most recent Life Lately post, you would see that I got 3 new piercings in my ears! My helix and third lobe holes. I really don't want them to get infected so I've been going to town with the spray and cleaning them. Good to have some sprays on the go.

Revlon Colour Burst Lacquer Stick - Have you used one of these giant crayon things before? They are fantastic. I have this baby permanently in my handbag in case I need some colour. This dark shade is perfect for Winter, but I may have to grab a nude shade for the upcoming warmer months.

Keys - Gotta be able to get into the house and car. I've got my garage door clicker on there too. Most importantly my everything is awesome Emmet key chain. He's a torch and wow he is soo useful! There are definitely more times than I realised that I need a torch. Love you little lego guy.

My Status Anxiety "Premonition" Bucket Bag - I thought what the heck, I got a new job let's get a new bag to go along with it! Excuses excuses. This bucket bag has all the right room for everything, and pulls closed super easily with those little tassells. It has a second shorter handle that I thought first, ugh I can't remove this I don't want it, but it's actually really handy and I have used it a bunch already. You're a winner in my book pretty bag, never too late to jump on the bucket bag trend. 

Blistex Lip Balm - There is nothing worse than having chapped lips. Ugh. It's easy to get them in the wind, basically during any season. Ladies (& gents), PawPaw ointment doesn't work, feel free to google the million reasons why. Blistex balm on the other hand, does. 

Kitti Black Shades* (available here) - These sunglasses by Quay Eyewear are so glam! I received them online from PureModa, I literally picked them out Monday afternoon and they arrived first thing Tuesday! That is what a gal wants when shopping online. These babies are the perfect accessory to glam up any outfit. I thought that they might have been a bit too cat eye, if you get me, but they're perfect! 

Thanks for having a looksie in my bag! Drop a link in the comments if you have a similar post so I can also have a stickybeak in your bag! Haha! If you don't use that word where you're from, make sure to insert it into your vocab, you won't regret it. ;)
Cya! xx

  1. I am loving your bag! While I'm mostly a backpack girl, I've been wanting a bucket bag for a while now. Perhaps a bucket backpack, ha!

    I think one of my favourite things about your posts is that I get to learn Aussie slang words. I mean, "stickeybeak." What even?! Officially in my vocab dictionary! I've always got tissue and a lip balm in my bag, because chapped lips? Not cute.

    I did a What's In My Bag a while ago but it was pretty crap, so I might do a new one soon! Happy Hump Day, Tegan!

  21. Little Emmet is so cute! And holy shizzle, I am in love with the shades. Seriously, I would love a thinner glasses frame in that shape, but don't think I would be able to rock them like you do the shades!!
