TAG POST - What's in My Bag

Hiya Beauty-Lovers! Hope you are all well and had a restful weekend

So I was tagged by the lovely Barbara who blogs over at to do a 'What's in My Bag' Post.

I know I had mentioned before here, that I love these sort of posts because it kind of allows you to know a bit more about the person behind the blog. So without much further-a-do......

Ta-da!! So here's the bag I tend to carry around a lot during the week. I rotate bags quite a bit, especially at the weekend, but during the week I like to stick to just 1 bag (2 at the most!) because I need a lot of essentials and I tend to forget to move some of them across to the new bag. You won't believe the number of times I have had to send for my electronic fob because I forgot it at home, in a bag I changed the night before.

I love this bag because its nice and big, don't know if you can tell from the picture. But it fits in all that I need on a day-to-day basis and more. I've had this bag for quite a long time, I'd say roughly about 4years now! And it is still going strong! :)

And here are the contents:

1.) Little Ankara-fabric purse where I keep all my change (N5, N20 & N50 notes). My Aunt gave this to me.

2.) My 2013 Dairy/Planner. I am always jotting things down and planning my to-do lists in advance.

3.) You can't really see it, but that's my office Identification Card (I.D.) clip-on holder.

4.) My Mobile Makeup Bag. The contents change quite a lot, but you can get the general idea from this here post I did a while ago

5.) iPad. I love watching Youtube beauty tutorials and this aids my addiction whilst on the move.

6.) Mini Sure Deodorant spray can. ALWAYS a necessity, you never know when you might need it.

7.) Soap & Glory 'Hand Food' hand-cream also a necessity. Love love love this hand-cream :)

8.) Bath & Body Works 'Vanilla Sprinkle Cookie' Antibacterial Hand Gel. Hate hand-shakes *ack* and I happen to have to shake people A LOT *shudder*. So I run through these like water. But I always wash my hands as soon as I can!

9.) Orbit Chewing Gum

10.) Advil Painkillers. Very handy, I hardly get headaches, but when I do it's usually from the heat.

11.) Wallet. Got all my bank cards,complimentary cards, few receipts and of  course, cash in there.

12.) Work keys and electronic fob.

13.) Home keys

14.) Blackberry, my other BB crashed the day before I took this picture, so had to crawl back to using my old bb. It's an oldie but a goodie! :)

15.) Official phone. This is only turned-on at office hours i.e. 8am-5pm Mon-Friday. Yes, I am serious :| 

16.) My Sunglasses. Also a necessity for me, unless I haven't got my lenses in that day and have to wear my prescription glasses.

17.) And of course my iPhone, which was used to take this here photo!

There you have it! The contents of my bag, hope you enjoyed this post and thanks Barbara for the tag :)

  4. Awww..lovely..bare stuffs :)

  5. Nice..
    Uhm. How do you care for your eyes? Are they white and bright? Lol. How often do you switch between glasses and contacts?
    'Cos when I wear contacts for days in a row, my eyes get reddish and dull looking, like I'm starting to feel like my eyes look older than my age.
    Then when I wear prescription glasses for a while, they leave marks on the face, alters the facial structure(I still wonder how), and there's the unsightly dark eye area if I've been under the sun with them.
    Can you also share(as a response to this comment perhaps) your glasses power? I'm -5.50(refused to change to -6.00) for example and it's hard looking good in glasses no matter how nice the frame is 'cos of the thick lens. Like we(glasses wearers) should have a glasses/contacts wearers (online) community or something for tips and what-not. Lol. I'm not weird, I just get excited when I see people that wear glasses and still look good with and without it(and have clear, bright eyes).
    Pls respond, thanks
