what's in my bag

One of my very first blog posts was a 'Whats In My Bag' way back in Summer 2012 so I thought it was about time to do an updated version. My everyday bag is the Zara Chain Bag which my Mum got me for Christmas 2012 so sadly it's unavailable now, I can't believe how well it has lasted it's still in great condition considering how bashed it used to get on the London Underground! It is the perfect size to fit in my essentials plus a little extra as it is quite roomy!
These are the bits & pieces I tend to always have in my bag. The journal is handy if I have anything I need to jot down & is always useful to plan blog posts in if I have some time to kill whilst I'm out & about. I don't carry a purse with me anymore, I just put all my cards in my Cath Kidston Travel Card Holder & chuck all my change into the bottom of my bag. It's a super bad habit but my other purse got wrecked holding so many things in & I am so fussy with purses that I just won't be happy until I own a Mulberry one ;) I'm also silly & don't like keyrings on my keys atm, I think this stems from me having a ridiculous amount on my keys when I was younger & forever getting annoyed when they got caught on things in my bag. I now keep my lose key in the small zip pockets, I should really attach it to something though as it could easily be lost! My Nana sends me letters quite regularly as I don't live nearby currently & occasionally she will pop in a little gift, the latest one being a packet of Pug tissues! Every time she sees anything with a Pug on it she will send me a text or write about it in her letters, she's so cute (:
Here is my adorable makeup bag I take with me, my friend Abi got it me as a gift it's so so cute I absolutely love it & it's just the right size for holding a few bits of makeup. I don't take too much makeup just the necessities as I rarely touch up my makeup anyway but I have it just incase! 
I also had a pile of crumpled receipts, loads of hair grips & dog treats in my bag but I didn't think it was worth photographing those! Is there anything that you always make sure you have in your bag? Oh & don't forget to enter my giveaway!
