I have always been a big handbag kinda girl but sometimes they are just not practical so for Christmas I asked for this Michael Kors Mini Selma (full review here).
Now this bag is small so you have to decide carefully what you need to pack. There is no room for non-necessities here!
So I whittled down what was in my previous mah-ousive bag to some little essentials that I thought I may need on a day or evening out.
First things first I have a little purse from Cath Kidston, a girls gotta have some cash….or at least cards as the case may be sometimes! This purse fits just enough in for the day to day tasks without having to carry around my big Ted Baker purse.
Next up is a sparkly pen because lets face it we all need a sparkly pen in our lives, I am a bit of a stationary nerd!
For touch ups on the go I have got a mini packet of facial wipes. These are from Halo and I think they are nice just to refresh your skin throughout the day or just to give your hands a quick wipe.
A straggly old hair tie, not much to say there! And finally a compact and a lip gloss. This lip gloss is a really beautiful shade of pink from the Rimmel Vinyl Gloss range, I think it is in the shade ‘Snog’ but the label has worn off!
Usually I will have my phone and my keys in here and that is it as it simply cannot fit anything else in. What can I say, it’s small but I love it!
