What's in my Bag?


I feel ecstatic to finally have taken some pictures for this tag, I've been meaning to do it since almost a year maybe, but one thing or another held it up. I got a couple of spare minutes today and made use of the bright sunny afternoon to take a few clicks. I love peeking inside other girls' bags, might have watched a hundred videos on YouTube. So keep reading if you want to see what's  inside my bag!:)

The bag I'm currently lugging around is the Mari Tote by Accessorize in light tan/camel color. I went bonkers over it when it was launched last year in their Autumn/Winter2012 collection, I loved it in their Ad campaign. It was quite expensive and at that point out of my budget! but as Paulo Coelho says in The Alchemist, "And when you want something, all the universe conspires in your favor to achieve it" so in the same way, the entire universe conspired, Accessorize put on a sale and I got lucky enough to grab this at almost 50% off!!! :D *claps wildly
It's huge with a snap closure, contains an inner detachable zipped section. Has an optional shoulder strap included.

So inside my Mari Tote I have my wallet, my Samsung phone (S3),a notebook and a pen, a USB (so handy!), the book I'm reading these days; The Road to Omaha by Robert Ludlum (writer of the Bourne Trilogy) and my glasses.

My wallet is a faux crocodile skin leather wallet by Jafferjees, it's a very recent purchase, I had a discount voucher to avail which was about to expire so I chose this because it had a decent number of card slots and the black color and texture gives it a classy look.

The Aviators I always carry around in my bag are by Tommy Hilfiger, mostly because they're super comfortable and very light weight, plus they come is a wonderfully protective case which keeps them safe inside the bag. These were a present from my lovely sista <3

My makeup bag is by Revlon, I keep my Lancome 4Ombres quad in it for the huge mirror it has, the colossal kajal(review here) and brow pencil, a blush; at the moment the Essence Miami Roller Girl blush in Dates on Skates (review here), a concealor wand in there by Makeup Academy, currently I have the Benefit they're Real mascara mini in my pouch along with lip products including Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait(review here), this is probably my most worn; Revlon just bitten kissable balm stain in Honey, another great neutral, MAC Vegas Volt (review here) for times when I want to move towards coral and Bite Beauty high pigment pencil for a bold lip! Oh and I keep a sample size perfume in there as well (not pictured here sadly) these days it's Victoria's Secret Angel.
Inside my makeup bag

The messy part includes endless receipts, some pills and inhaler (I have allergies); a random hand sanitizer, OPI Avojuice Skin Quenchers in Mango(review here) for my hands, some wipes for emergency situations,a hair grip and some hair ties and bobby pins too but they weren't anywhere near while I was taking these pictures! :O and the last bit, the house keys that I take along, they were hanging on the key hanger (hence not pictured)
The necessities

And this is how everything fits inside the detachable inner fabric bag, I put everything in my purse organizer(review here) and then that goes inside, keeping everything organized!
How everything fits inside!
