Zips & Studs: What's In My Bag?

One of the first posts I ever did was a 'What's in my bag?' post and I really enjoyed it. That was nearly a year ago now and I've seen a few of these posts around lately so I thought I'd do an update - I'm a nosey buggar so I love these sorts of posts!
My bag is a huuuuuuge black leather-effect bag which I bought from Lucy's new handbag shop for the bargainous price of £28. It's currently out of stock but you can have a look here if you like it! You can currently use the code 'HHHMSSALE' to receive a 50% discount off any item on the site - a great deal! The code is valid for two weeks from today, so until June 5th.
I love the (non-functioning) zips on the front and the studs on the strap - it means I'm more comfortable in slightly more "girly" outfits than I might otherwise be, because I can tough it up with my zippy studded handbag!

And this is the crap I was carrying round with me last night when I got in from my exam!

Revision notes (thanks Daisy for the spider diagram tip!), diary and fineliner pens - because everything in my diary is colour-coded. This is more because I like things to look pretty than because the colour-coding is helpful or, indeed, meaningful in any way. (The same goes for the spider diagram. It is literally just to look pretty.)

Three pens, keys, headphones, Carmex, Next coconut lip balm, Revlon Lip Butter in Macaroon, various receipts/vouchers/bus tickets, tattoo appointment card. Nothing exciting there I don't think..

The marble on my keys is just that, no sentimental value or anything, it's just easy to find in the bottom of my bag. The little mirror with the fairy on was my mum's (vintage! Get me!) and is handy for obvious reasons.

Jane Norman purse which is in sore need of replacement (it's falling apart) but I haven't seen any purses I like in aaaages, Neutrogena hand cream, memory stick, and a canvas shopping bag in an attempt to stop our kitchen becoming entirely over-run by plastic bags (I'm failing miserably. I swear, for every bag I save, someone else brings home three extra).
And that is it! I've actually also got a miniature bottle of perfume (Armani Code) and a packet of migraine tablets in the back pocket which I'd forgotten about until just now. Sorry ladies, you're missing out there!
Have any of you done a similar post recently? Please link me up, I love a good nose!!

  4. That looks like a great bag to stuff a load of things in - totally like how my old university bag was. It was a wonder how much I could get in it!

    1. Haha yep, I have to empty it periodically or I end up carrying a ridiculous amount of stuff round with me! xo

  5. Thanks for the comment my love!
    And dont worry I'm just as nosy, I love these kinda posts! Really need a permanent bag like you, mine I like change over all the time, and I forget to put half the stuff in I know I'll need. Not cool..

    1. I do change my bags around and I literally have to search all the pockets of one bag and transfer everything to the other haha xo

  6. Lovely bag Jess ;)

    1. Haha thanks ;D No problem, hope you get some people checking you out from it :) xo

  7. Kitchen sink much? :p You're like me. Haha. I've been debating doing one of these posts though I should sort my bag out first as it's full of random stuff like salt and pepper sachets and cocktail sticks! I stick to the same handbag too usually. If I change, I tip contents of one in to the other. Haha.

    1. Hahaha I did neglect to mention a small collection of KFC wet wipes.. I do carry everything though, you never know when you might need it!! xo

  8. Gorgeous bag. I've been meaning to do one of these posts since I started blogging and still haven't got round to it! I will do it one day xx
