What’s in my handbag?

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetI haven’t done a blog like this in nearly over a year now, so I thought – 1. I need a huge clear out of my bag haha and 2. you may want to be nosey πŸ™‚ So here’s what is in my handbag.

My handbag is a blue eggshell colour and I received it for my 26th birthday from my best friends. It is from New Look, has a lovely rose gold clasp and is an over the shoulder bag. As you can see it has a croc effect on the front. I have had a lot of compliments on the handbag, and it just seems to go with everything. I don’t usually have black handbags, always love a bit of colour.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetMy purse is again from New Look and again for my birthday. I thought I would go for something completely different that normal. My name is Cat, so how about I chose a purse that reflects my name – sad I know! πŸ™‚ But its so cute!!

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetI sometimes really don’t know how I have put what you will see from now on in the handbag. Here is my make up bag, full of essentials πŸ™‚ The bag itself is from Primark, I also have it in a larger version, similar to a make up travel bag. I love the orange!

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetI have gone back to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Porcelain, I used to absolutely love it and I some how got distracted by another. But here I am back again, and loving it all over again. I also love Rimmels Stay Matte in Silky Beige, its just THE best! Finally my new favourite product, now that I am getting older oh and for dark circles haha, Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser Eye in Nude. It’s just a brilliant product, quick and easy to use, plus its so effective. It has a sponge like top to it, which is lovely and soft on the eyes.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetMy go to mascara, Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Cat Eye. It’s just so brilliant for 1 coat only, your eyelashes are greatly extended, the mascara itself is very black and its lasts for ages.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetFirst of all, yes I need to clean this haha – any tips for cleaning brushes by the way PLEASE PLEASE send me your links!! I am desperate lol This sponge, I actually got from Primark, its actually brilliant and I haven’t used a brush in ages. Great coverage, easy to use and effective.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetOne of my favourite new brushes at the moment, real Techniques expert face brush. Just for all those extra touches that I may need on the go. Makeup Academy’s Pro Base, although this is classified as a “cheap product”, I would recommend to buy it for some on the go, need to fix your face time! Finally my favourite eyebrow pencil – MUA Luxe Powerbrow in Mid Brown.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetMy favourite lip gloss at the moment, I really have never been one for Lip Crayons and especially of this shade, I often go for a darker tone. This is “Proudly Naked” by Bourjois, again a company that I have never really bought from.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetHere’s the lip crayon on me, its a really subtle shade of a colour between peach and nude. Just enough pigment to say that you have some colour on your lips, but still with a nude illusion.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetI seem to have gathered some smelly things…… haha, I have bought so much Nivea deodrants. Currently the stress protect in a compact bottle is Β£1 each, and the larger is 1 for Β£3 in Morrisons, what do I do – buy 3 of the compact bottles.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetI recently went to Crabtree and Evelyn store in the Ashford Designer Outlet, never stepped foot in their before and I will now be doing that every time. The products are frigging amazing, the customer service is brilliant and the smells… oh the smells!! I bought 4 products, here is one. Ultra Moisturising Pomegranate, the smell is just so fresh and clean, you only need a little smidge and my hands have never been so much softer.

Next up is the EOS Strawberry balm. I will never look at another lipbalm again – It is so good. I really want to get the mint one and melon now!! The cute little panda are some cheap scented nail varnish remover pads. So cute!

The two scents, are from NEXT and they are my favourites. Next Pink and Sparkle – lush.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetA girl always needs a glass nail file. I suffer from anxiety as well, so therefore I have the lovely rescue remedy to chill me out and finally haha buscopan yay! Although it did remind me and made me think “bugger wheres my inhaler!”

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetFirst of all the lighting in this is so terrible. But I am loving my tablet. My new years resolution is to read more books, how many have I fully read – 0. I lie…. 1, which I started back in July. haha! One of my favourite films of all time The Grand Budapest Hotel, I am now reading the script – I just adore it.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetA theatre ticket to see Matilda the Musical. I URGE YOU TO SEE IT, ITS FREAKING AMAZING!!! I cant stop listening to the songs, nearly 1 month later.

Processed with VSCOcam with h3 presetFinally a girl needs sweets and these are my choice – Rhubarb and Custard mmm

So there you have it, that’s what is in my bag. I got rid of a hella lot of receipts, which is ridiculous, so much rubbish and tissues!! But it means I have had a lovely clear out.
