One of the very first blog posts I ever did was a What’s In Your Bag tag.
They’re one of my favourite posts to read and YouTube videos to watch.
(Mainly cos I’m just incredibly nosy.)
So in honour of the fact that my beloved backpack has finally started to fall apart at the seams, I thought I’d do a quick update on what I cart around with me on a daily basis.
Before it breaks completely and I have to replace it. Sob.
No artfully arranged stuff here!
This is literally just me upside-downing my bag and dumping it all on the floor (and by floor I mean a red blanket. Because BACKGROUNDS).
So what’s in my bag?
Disclaimer: this is GENUINELY everything that was in my bag. I haven’t taken out a thing. Not even the pants…
*iPad Air (Space Grey) in orange case
*Notepad from Citizen M hotel* (best notepad EVERRR)
*Busy B Life Diary (best diary EVERRR)
*Kindle Paperwhite in the Ink Blue Amazon case
*Glasses + case (both from Boots)
*Vlogging camera: Canon IXUS 100 (why am I carrying around a vlogging camera? *wink*)
*Ancient and yellowing purse from New Look
*A spare pair of pants (you never know where the night will take you)
*Mirror (Primark £1)
*Keys (with Platform 9 and 3/4s keyring. Obvs)
*New Look gift card (not sure why this is here cos I’ve definitely already spent it…)
*Rayban limited edition Wayfarers + case
*Business card holder (empty because my business cards are now square and don’t fit in the rectangular case… so why am I carrying it?!)
*Extra White Wrigley’s chewing gum
SO. MUCH. JUNK.
*Tub of Vita Coco coconut oil* (I got sent this as a PR sample but I’ve no idea why it’s just chilling in my bag!)
*Camera cards (two because I tend to always forget one in the computer after I’ve transferred my photos)

*Starbucks napkin that I’ve been using to blot my lipstick with.
*Massive pile of multi-sized plasters
*Bunch of receipts from Post Office (returned shopping)

Aaaaaand we’re done.
I officially carry to much rubbish around with me. Can’t decide if I’m proud or embarrassed by it!
But it’s fine, cos I can’t be the only one who has a Mary Poppins bag. You all carry this much stuff around with you as well, right?
