What’s in my bag?

I can remember doing a post like this in my beginning blogger days and thought it would be fun to do another one as I’m sure the contents of my bag would have changed since say 2 years ago. I love reading and seeing what other bloggers carry in their bag so I thought i'd once again try my hand at it.
Lipstick, Gum & Floss brushes
These are the few items that you would almost always find in my bag. I have a no less that 4 to 5 items of lipsticks stuck in some or other inner pocket of my bag & these floss brushes just always comes in handy at the weirdest moments so I just keep them in my bag just in case. Sugar free gum is always a must as it keeps your breath oh so fresh!
 Hair-ties, Slides, Grips and Flower crown
I always have one or other hair crises, hence in this area i'm quiet prepared. Ever since I've cut my hair, I actually can't tie it without pieces of strands falling by the wayside. But for some reason I still keep these in my bag (just in case). This flower crown has actually belongs to my 5year old niece and have been meaning to return it, but never did so its been dragged along in my bag ever since. It's quiet pretty right...
Nail polish, Tweezer, Nail Clipper & Notebook 
There is at-least one bottle of nail polish in my bag & a trusted nail clipper, you know just in case a nail chips or hooks. You know it's happened to you before at some point or another? I'm really busy with work, studies and blogging so those in-between moments when i'm not as busy, I'll paint my nails. My tweezer travels with me wherever I go, having nicely twee-zed brows is a must for me, hence if I see a hair out of place I have this constant urge to tweeze it & set the record straight. I also have those random splurges of inspiration & hence I always keep a small notebook handy just to write down a few ideas which I would be able to resume to later. The fact that it's pink makes me love it even more...
Competition Time:
This particular Blackcherry bag is one of my favourites, & it can be purchased from FashionHub. Let me know what's in your bag and you can win a R1000 FashionHub voucher. There are x2 R1000 vouchers up for grabs.

  4. I try to keep as little as possible in my bag due to the fact that a heavy bag hurts my neck and shoulders and I end up suffering for days on end, so all I have is waterless hand cleaner, tissues and my wallet, I do not even have my cellphone in my bag :-)

  7. Hi hun, well, this is my list of "what's in your bag"... It's a bit of a long one though. Took me my teen years, 20's and having kids to get it down to "perfection" lol

    * I have first and foremost my wallet in my bag. It contains most of my cards (clicks clubcard, credit card, debit card, voucher cards, thank U cards etc) and always has some amount of cash in it for emergencies.
    * I have some spare tampons in my bag (You never know when you might need one)
    * I have a spare elastic and some clips in my bag
    * A must have for me is a pen, don't always carry a notebook with me, but a pen is a MUST.
    * I have some lipgloss and lipice in my bag.
    * A packet of tissues
    * A refresher towel or two, and also the ones that is made for stains on clothing that you can buy at Woolworths.
    * I don't eat gum a lot but carry some in my purse in case I might have eaten garlic at lunch etc, or I will have some form of peppermint of sweet in my bag.
    * I have a Slimsonic toothbrush in my bag (Weird, I know) with a small tube of travel toothpaste. It happened to me before that I had to sleep over in a hotel, I couldn't go home to get clean clothes etc, so now I carry that with me and at least know I can brush my teeth in any event necessary.
    * Another MUST for me is safety pins. Having boys that tear clothes, and rip of buttons etc means they come in handy more than once. I myself had an incident as well where my button of my pants came loose, so this was my saving grace.
    * I also carry my ID in my bag. It basically has found its permanent home in there now. Two months back we flew to Cape Town, got to OR Thambo just to realize I forgot my ID at home. So now it stays in my bag and I do not dare take it out. (Luckily we were early and a friend was kind enough to go home and bring it to me, I realized then and there I have some amazing friends.)
    * I have a makeup compact, mostly for the use of the small mirror to check my hair etc.
    * I have my little container of Natreen sugar tablets
    * There is a can of Pink Happiness from Revlon in my bag
    * And lastly I have a travel size hand cream and my Heliocare in my bag...

    Ok, I had to double check my bag lol, but looks like I covered everything. (Yes, I have one bag that I use, the others are more for "special occasions" and it is a pretty big bag as well hehe)

    - spare elastics and hair pins
    - an old pill bottle in which I keep my essentials like multivits, omega 3's, zinc and pain killers
    - some lady products for my monthly's...
    - cell and charger
