Hey everyone! My name is Georgina and I am based in London. I mostly post about eating and going out in London with a little bit of fashion thrown in when I fancy! Lovely Jemma has given me a guest posting spot & I thought I'd do a 'What’s In My Handbag' post.
Andrew (the boyf) bought me my black Longchamp bag as a surprise a few years ago, he got me the wrong size one so I made him go back and change it (ungrateful girlfriend I know) but I'm so glad I did because I literally use it for everything! Work, shopping, dinner, drinks - everything. It is just the perfect size, it's lightweight and it's black so it goes with every outfit.
I hate big purses - I used to use a little pouch style one but that was just impractical so I have tried to get the best of both worlds with this little one from River Island. They come in loads of styles, silver jumper out at me in the shop and I love that it still has all the normal purse features, just half the size.
Contact Lenses & Glasses Case
I cannot see a thing so I need one or the other of these at all times. I am loving my new Ray Bans at the moment which I ordered from Glasses Direct but I am so indecisive - most days, I leave the house in my glasses and come home in my contacts - especially if I have an event after work!
After 16 months of being unemployment, I now work in an office & have a much bigger need for Nurofen than ever before. I try not to take it unless I really need to but I like the security of having it there if I need it! Especially when those tension headaches kick in during the afternoon or any muscular pain that I might get - I am still not used to sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day.
Wires & Electronics
This is super boring but I'm sure all bloggers have a pretty similar stash! I have a portable charger from Primark and a USB wire to plug into my computer at work because it’s usually down to 56% by the time I get there (What a load of rubbish.) I also keep the plug adaptor part of it in my bag, you know, emergencies and all. As well as that, I have my old iPod and a tangled set of headphones with me at all times.
Make Up Bits
I am not a huge make up wearer although I don’t leave the house without one of my many Barry M blink eyeliners, my handbag one gets used a lot for touch-ups - especially if I have just put lenses in and am a streaming mess! I also try to keep whatever polish I am wearing in my bag to fix any chippage. I am currently wearing this amazing purple from Barry M
With all those wires, I hardly have space or the strength to carry around a full bottle of perfume, although I am sure to always have a sample. Currently I have Lady Million on me and I really love! I also keep a tiny travel can of deodorant with me since most days, I am running from event to event after work.
As well as a tiny mirror that gets the occasional use, I have a lip balm, hand cream and spot stick that hardly ever see the light of day haha
