What Is In My Bag?

The two things I always carry with me are my moleskines. The red is my journal full of my novel ideas, stories and poems and the black is my diary. If someone wants to make plans with me, it has to be written in the diary. If it isn't then I will definitely forget!  

Trust me, if you don't have a wallet this size then I don't know what you are doing with your life or time!? This carries everything I need and doubles up as a clutch for nights and dinners out. It started life as a Cambodian Rice Bag and will live out its remaining days with me in its beautiful clutch form. 

Glasses and No.7 Lip and Eye Sun Protection; major necessities! I don't need my glasses all the time, they're really just for concentrating but due to me wearing them at work as I'm staring at a computer all day, I keep them in my bag as I'm a bit absent minded and leave things about in random places. The No.7 protection has worked wonders for this fantastic Summer we're experiencing here in England!

I've recently had to attach a bell keyring to my keys as I'm forever losing them at the bottom of my bag. I like to have lots of keyrings and I feel all of these sum up my personality quite well...particularly the elephant. 

Sanitary Towels in case of emergency obviously! Over the last few months works has been an extremely stressful place and due to being very run down, I came down with a pretty stonking chest infection. I had to work through this illness as we couldn't afford to lose anyone from work so I started taking Redoxon. I don't take it as much anymore but when I'm feeling a bit pooey, I mix up a glass at work. The Polo's and Orbit are just to make sure my breath stays fresh all day long!

The things in my bag make me look very sensible but I can assure you I'm really not! I'm currently carrying Ibuprofen around as I've been experiencing wisdom tooth pain, the facial wash is something from Glossybox that I just shoved in my bag in case I needed it and the hayfever tablets are daily use due to my allergies!

Sunnies from New Look to shield from the blazing fireball in the sky! The little chinese purse on the far left is full of hair grips as due to the phenomenal size of my hair, I'm unable to put it up without shoving a million grips in it to keep it in place. My iPod goes everywhere with me, the E45 cream is for my eczema and my phone (with the incredible cover) is of course, always with me...apart from when I forget it. Also, I often put it on airplane mode so people don't bother me. Basically, I shouldn't have a phone!

A random ring that is just a little bit tight and a pocket mirror!

My sunnies and glasses with the current book; Citadel by Kate Mosse. 

My satchel is from Barcelona and was €20. We were walking back from the Gothic Quarter and this little beauty caught my eye and that was it!

So do you carry similar things to me? What necessities do you always need with you?

Messing About With The New Camera

So I got a new camera, a Canon 600D to be exact, and it is beautiful!! I love it - I now have to teach myself how to use it of course! I thought I would mess around with a few test shots and give you the sneakiest of looks of my new room. Very very limited looks though!

Jumping Jellybeans

I'm not sure what you guys got up to last night but I can show you a few snaps of our adventures! The plan was for Mim and I to stay in and watch The X-Factor however my friend Holly threw an impromptu BBQ and we re-discovered Holly's trampoline. Here are just a few photographs from our acrobatic accolade!

Barcelona, You Have My Heart

I spent the last few days in Barcelona with two of my girls from university and it was amazing! The weather was incredible and the spanish are the friendliest people ever. I thought I would share a few photographs of my experience with you particularly to fill the waiting gap until I show you the incredible transformation my room has made!! Eek progress is being made!

I also snapped up the below bag from Barcelona. I love the Cambridge Satchel but could never quite bring myself to spend such a large amount of money however on Friday, we were wondering back along Las Ramblas and I caught these for just €20! The girls got excited too, Sarah got one in pink and Emma found a gorgeous black pleated totey one. VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE!

Have you been anywhere recently? What did you get up to? Did you make any to die for purchases?
