What's In My Bag: Fall Edition

Every season the contents of my bag change but some items always stay there. Also, the bigger the bag, the more I feel the urge to pack it full. I have no idea why I do it but I'm sure a lot of you can relate. Some items tend to pile up and then I face the "clean out the black hole" type of situation :) However, when it comes to my Michael Kors I put an extra effort into keeping things organised inside this beauty. This bag is very special to me because it was a present from my husband on our honeymoon and purchased in Las Vegas. #amazingmemories 
Here is what I currently have inside my MK bag:

1. My Planner, a notebook and a pen: 
That polka-dotted notebook/hand-made planner is the no.1 thing that keeps me organised. It contains all the info I need and my to-do list(s). The cute little notebook comes in handy a lot when I must jot something down or take minutes. I also keep a pen or two in my bag for obvious reasons.
2. Wallet/purse: 
Gorgeous matching Michael Kors wallet is always with me. It contains all the cards, some cash, a few receipts from 3 months ago (if not older) and other bits and bobs (and junk) everyone has in their wallet. 
3. Nail file:
Are there any nails experts reading this? I would appreciate your advice on how to make nails stronger because mine break quite a lot. Nail file is a must to carry along wherever I go, in case of emergency.
4. Coins and hair ties/elastics: 
I know some people absolutely can not stand loose coins in their wallet or bag, but I don't mind it. It just always happens that there are a few pennies or pence scattered somewhere at the bottom of my bag. Also, I can't tell you enough how important it is to have a couple of hair elastics with you. 'Cause you never know when you want your hair out of your face.
5. Makeup bag:
I like to know I have my little makeup essentials for little touch-ups during the day. So this lovely NYC inspired makeup bag is with me on the go. I might do a "What's In My Makeup Bag" or My Daily Makeup post later on.
6. Umbrella: 
Today's weather pretty much proved the need for one. #lifeinEngland :)
7. Map of Oxford:
That is a random thing I found in my bag. I must have had it in there since the time we had a little stop in Oxford on the way from London. It was really nice to take a few hours to wander around and enjoy the city on a hot summer day. Oxford is absolutely gorgeous.
8. Nivea cleaning wipes: 
If you ask anyone (who knows me well) what is one thing I do at least 15 times a day, they would say "wash hands". I am not a doctor or a nurse, not afraid of germs (well, maybe a bit concerned about them haha) but feel the need to wash my hands very often. So whenever I am not able to do that, I reach out for either a hand sanitizer or these wipes. They also come to the rescue if I need to fix my makeup or if something gets spilled. 
9. Earbuds:
Everyone knows that feeling when you want to zone out, listen to your favourite music or watch a YouTube video while you are on the go, and you realize the earbuds were left at home. They have to come attached to the bag! 
10. House key:
Very much needed item along with not a less important lovely key chain. Mine is from New York and it's a cute bear dressed up as a Statue of Liberty. By the way, I constantly miss my most favourite city in the world. Fortunately, we have been going there quite a lot in the last couple of years. Can't wait for the next time!
11. Camera + case + cable:
I have had this idea of starting my YT channel and vlogging, so I always bring a camera along if the inspiration strikes. I absolutely love watching vlogs and would definitely love to start my own. One little problem: I feel too shy talking to the camera, esp in public. Must work on that. What do you think of the idea and vlogging in general?
12. Band-aids/plasters:
My hubby claims I am accident prone. I strongly disagree :) However, I am not afraid of blisters if these little plasters are with me.
13. Oyster card:
This card has been sitting in my bag since mid-June as if I might be spontaneously whisked away to London any day haha. I am also sure there are a few pounds on it. London definitely must be calling! 
That is all I have in my bag at the moment. Apart from my phone, which I almost exclusively have in my hand, so technically it is hardly ever in the bag. 

Hope you enjoyed this post. Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' to stay tuned, tweet me, like my blog on Facebook and check out my pins.

  2. Надюша, сумка бомбезная!!!!! еще и вместительная настолько))) у меня тоже, как и у любой девочки, в сумке "черная дыра", вроде вещей ношу не много, а найти что-то нереально)) Как говорят, девушке надо звонить дважды, первый - чтобы она нашла телефон, второй раз - чтобы ответила))) Это про меня))
    А мне было бы еще интересно "подсмотреть" что в твоей косметичке)))
    Спасибо, что поделилась с нами)) Хорошего тебе дня, солнце)))

      Ты видела фильм "Leap Year", где главная героиня обращается к своему чемодану Луи (т.к. он марки Луи Виттон), а парень с Ирландии думает, что он сошла с ума))) Я свою называю "ЭмКей", муж смеется и каждый раз напоминает сцену из фильма)) Плюс ко всему, он у меня Айриш (Сев. Ирландия, то тоже Ирландия) :)
      Обязательно поделюсь содержимым косметички, дорогая))
      Отличного тебе дня, буся! <3

  7. Ah that bag is gorgeous! I've wanted to splurge and get a Kate Spade bag for a while, but there are so many I want, and I can't afford them all! If only. I think it's great that you bring your camera around! It definitely means you'll have fewer of those "I wish I brought my camera" moments.

      Designer bags are definitely not cheap but it is an investment. I love how you can wear the simplest outfit and then add that staple bag and it just pops. Hope you get your hands on Kate Spade soon girlie ;)

  9. Your bag is absolutely gorgeous - I've been thinking of getting an MK bag for a while now, I love yours, haven't seen anything like it! I love how you've got the essentials in your bag - most of the things I have in my bag are similar to yours - I can't leave the house without hair elastics because my hair gets crazy as the day goes on because of the crazy weather!

    1. Thank you so much, Pauline :) I remember your blog post where you talked about wanting to invest in a Michael Kors bag. I've seen so many around but this one stood out because it is unique. The shop assistant said it is limited edition and it will definitely not be around all the time and in every store. I honesty was crying when hubby got it for me + a matching wallet (not ashamed to admit) 'cos it was so special for me.
      Thanks for a lovely & thoughtful comment, Pauline <3

  15. I am sorry for having deleted my previous comment. I don't know why I can't comment with my Wordpress account.

    Your Michael Kors bag is beautiful, the perfect mix between classy and trendy! When I am using big bags like yours, I also carry a pocket book (we never know when you'll have time to read some pages) and the liquid for my contact lenses. Of course the earbuds are essential, specially when you know you'll be on public transportation at rush hours and you need to zone out from the noisy surroundings :)

    Thank you for comment on my blog!

    Have a nice week!
