My everyday bag of choice is back to my Petticoat White Mulberry Alexa. This was my 20th birthday present and whilst I did have inklings of doubt of whether it’d see me through the winter that calls for a darker colour palette, Alexa and I are now onto our second winter together. It’s love, I tell ya, rose gold hardware and slouchy leather goodness.
First in my bag is my purse, a black Mulberry Tillie ‘French’ purse that I bought nearly a year ago. It houses many a forgotten receipt, all my 2ps, business cards and Nando’s loyalty card – perfect. I also carry my Korres lip butter in ‘Guava’ for winter lip pampering, so buttery (obvs) and moisturising, although it leaves a white cast to my lips, which is where my Rimmel 1000 Kisses lip tint in ‘Kiss Me’ comes into play. I can’t get enough of this lip tint, it’s my go-to red lip for an understated injection of colour. I also pop my Stila Eyeliner in ‘Moray’ in there for day-to-night eyes, and a Chanel Coco Rouge Shine in ‘Boy’ for last minute event-related touch ups.
My gadgets are the next to be whacked in my bag. I can’t go anywhere without my iPod Touch (soon to be upgraded!) and Xperia Ray phone, which means my The Big Knit x Daisybutter mini hat is hanging around too. (You can still enter my giveaway to win the full-sized version here!) I’m also currently toting around my sticker-pimped-out Filofax and a back issue of Aesthetic magazine – Issue Three production is well underway!
