What's in your Bag??

Oooooo so my fellow blogger Third World Profashional tagged me in her "What's in your Bag Meme" post. The rules are simple:

1. Take a picture of your bag.
2. Take a picture of it's contents.
3. Explain.
4. Tag as many bloggers as you want, that you'd like to see the contents of their bags.

The Bag

Louis Vuitton Bellevue GM
I recently came back from holiday and haven't change my bag since then. I have been to bbq's, clubs, school, the library, the vets, in short everywhere with this bag. I love the fact that it has a great capacity for daily objects so I can carry as much crap as I want and the best part is I can carry it on my shoulder (not cute but comes in handy when I'm walking my dog).


From top to bottom

1) Mini Make-up Bag: I always carry a mini make up bag which includes my MAC blot powder, my Chanel 65 lipgloss, my MAC Rebel lipstick and my kajal. You never know when that impromptu sleep over happens or you are out all day.

2) Louis Vuitton Wallet: I recently obtained this from my mum because she never puts anything in it. It now contains my bank cards, starbucks card, boots advantage card etc.

3) Paper Blanks Day Planner 2011: Call me old fashioned but even with a blackberry, I still write in a diary. I plan holidays, mark dates to remember, have important numbers on it, and some other information.

4) Magazine: I always have a magazine in my bag, from stylist to vogue, it comes in handy when I'm stuck underground or in traffic.

5) Comb, for bad hair days or windy days.

6) Mentos gum: Having braces is a pain but I'm so used to mine I have refused to take it off even though I have perfect teeth now. 

7) Body Shop Vitamin E Hand Treatment: Soft hands and stronger nails, what more can a girl ask for?? I hate dry hands or dry anything so I make sure I pack a tube of hand cream wherever I go.

8) Hand Sanitizer(s): Yes I have 2!!! That says it all lol.

9) Wayfarers: I love sunglasses but I LOVE wayfarers. I have 2 different ones now cos its just amaze!!

10) Earphones Case: Again if I'm stuck somewhere, if I've finished reading my mag, nothing entertains me more than music!! I love to keep my earphones in a case to avoid it getting tangled.

11) Keys: I have forgot my keys once during winter and had to wait for my brother to get home. So there I was, 4.30am after a night out in a skimpy dress and no jacket (what was I thinking) lets just say it never happened again!!

12) Oyster card and Student card: These are always side by side wherever I go because I use them almost daily.

13) Camera: I love my mini Nikon camera because its takes amazing pics and has up to 10 optical zoom which is pretty cool.

14) Pencil Case: Funny how we hate some things in high school but end up loving it when we are older!! This keeps all my pens and highlighters... after all i AM a student hehe.

Usually my blackberry is in my bag but I used my phone to take the pics!!


So I've decided to tag a few people too to see what is in their bag!!! 

Anita of Sarkor & Taylor
Zelew of Meoki
Ngozi of Interno Bellezza
Simi of William West
Viola Zu of Cello-in
Adaku of Third World Profashional (well I know what is in yours now hehe)

LFS ♥s Zara

Ok I did stumble upon another site and this was an accident this time but it was well worth it!!!

I Love three toned shoes!!!

I still ♥lace


♥ the brogues

I'm officially broke!!! Was really impressed with all the colors and styles Zara had to offer. Forget fast fashion, this is just fashion!!!!

LFS ♥s H&M

While doing some research for my dissertation, I stumbled upon H&M's website and the more I looked, the more I saw!!! I ended up in review your order (definitely not part of my research) and paid for goods that I didn't need but had to have! With new trends, and pop colors, I couldn't help myself and the best part was most of it was on sale (unexpected but true) starting at £2.99 (no joke).

At £3.99 the skirt is a steal

Maxis are a big trend this summer!!!

 Then to top it all up, the cherry on top the cream etc, some Lanvin for H&M dresses which were over 100 pounds are on sale now!!!!

Lilac is also a big trend right now.

Everyone can gain from the sale (plus size and maternity)

I recently learned how to tie a turban thanks to Third World Profashional. She put up an 'educative' video and I tried my best hehe
The only problem I have with H&M online is the delivery date(s), yes dates. I had a different date for most items, I guess it's because some items were coming from other countries. Other than that, I cannot wait to get my stuff... (I can hear my best friend screaming shopaholic). Ok back to my dissertation (I pray I don't stumble on any more online shopping sites)!!!

Indigo Xtra (IX) : Hair Fascinators

They say you keep searching for something that is right under your nose, I never understood that statement until I was looking for a hat or fascinator for The Royal Ascot. My sister designs some amazing fascinators for her company (IX) and weddings. 

I cannot wait to see what she makes for me. I'm tres excited!!!!
