Friend Friday - What's in my Handbag?

Katy is normally hosting the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday. Recently, she changed it to a bi-weekly schedule, but  Marie-Eve of A Pretty Nest had the idea of still doing something together for one of the other weeks. She asked us all to show what we got in our Handbag. I have seen those kind of posts everywhere in the blogging community and finally I will reveal the secret content of my handbag!


First of all, my current favorite: A green Satchel bag from H&M that has a long shoulder strap. I always have one favorite each season that I wear almost non-stop. The bag needs to be spacious to fit all of my stuff!

Beauty essentials (from left to right, top to bottom)

  1. Shades (C&A) and case for them
  2. Glasses (for reading and watching movies)
  3. sparkly make-up bag holds
    1. deodorant
    2. mini perfume (Bulgari "Mon Jasmin noir")
    3. mini Chanel "Inimitable Intense" Mascara
    4. Essence 50's Girls Reloaded LE "Back to the 50's" Lipstick
    5. P2 Pure Color "Park Street" Lipstick
    6. Silver mirror
    7. comb
    8. Essence mini nail file
    9. mini sun blocker SPF 30
    10. Hand cream
  4. tissues
  5. Lactrase pills - so I can eat food that contains lactose

The useful stuff (from left to right, top to bottom)

  1. notebook and pen (to write down ideas for the blog, thesis, things that come to mind)
  2. umbrella and scarf (currently the weather is more like fall)
  3. I pod and headphones
  4. mints 
  5. wallet
  6. lip balm
  7. box with band aids, headache medicine (started carrying it when I was an Au Pair)
  8. phone (in a Marimekko case)
  9. keys
I know, I got way too much stuff, but this is what I carry with me, plus my SLR most days. When I go out, I limit it to the most important things (it's hard, but I can manage)!

What do you need to keep in your bag on a daily basis? Are you a minimalistic girl or does your bag look similar to mine?

These are some very bright purse accessories. Love it. I usually have a small makeup bag with the essentials; lip balm, hand cream, tissues, advil, mascara. I don't like to have too much in my purse.

Gorgeous bag, I too usually carry the same bag over and over and when I'm sick of it, I go to the next one. I do have some designers one that are always on rotation !

Thanks for sharing !

Your bag is so cute!  You're so good to carry sunscreen with you... I always forget mine! I'm lactose intolerant too, but none of the pills work on me.
