First of all, I have my River Island purse (filled at the minute with lots of loyalty cards and not much actual money unfortunately..), my makeup bag, a Charlie Red body spray, a cheap diary which I use for work and blogging and 2 spare phone batteries. I got this idea from Sophia when I saw her at the London meetup; she had 2 extra fully charged batteries with her in case she ran out of charge. That day, I arrived home (luckily) just as my phone cut out and with little money on me – can you imagine if that had happened when I was stuck at the train station half an hour earlier with no way of getting home? I’m now going to be prepared for any such eventuality.
Next, we have some Boots cleansing wipes – they aren’t anything special but they’re handy to keep in my handbag; my Kindle with my amazing case which I reviewed here, my hairbrush, house keys and my phone.
Lastly, you have the contents of one of the small pockets on the inside – some antibacterial hand gel from Cuticura, a tin of Vaseline, a Boots lip salve, my Pebble Grey mirror (reviewed here), some painkillers (nearly always need them after commuting into London…), a Clinique Superbalm moisturising gloss, my work keys which never leave my bag but wouldn’t be any use to anyone, a perfume sample (I am currently trying to use up my extensive supply of these!), a tiny Olay moisturiser sample and a Dainty Doll lipstick which I bought from Hayley. I seem to have a bit of an addiction to lip balms according to my bag contents – however, these are essentials for me to carry around with me – my lips get so cracked and dry if I don’t look after them properly.
What are you bringing to Britmums Live with you, if you are attending that is? Whether it is your handbag or an overnight bag, I want to see!
