Whats In My Bag? | Autumn Edition

Now the weather is getting loads colder, I’ve switched from my trusty Fjallraven Kanken bag to my favourite autumn bag.  I love having  a new bag for each season, and this one from River Island makes such a nice addition to an outfit. The colour is SO GORGEOUS and I totally love this bag!

It’s a few years old now, so you can’t get it on River Island’s website anymore, but I absolutely adore it.  It’s a nice burgundy colour, so it isn’t too in your face but it isn’t boring either.  It’s really quite small, which I prefer because it means I’ll only bring my essentials and what I need with me instead of loads of pointless bits and bats.  It’s a bit of a satchel style, and the hardwear is gold which is something I wouldn’t usually go for but I really like it here.

In the first front pocket, I usually keep my phone but I was taking the pictures with it.  I also keep my Jack Wills purse, it’s more of a coin purse but I prefer a small purse because it takes up less room and there’s less fuss.  I also have my Burts Bees peppermint lip balm, it’s really moisturising and I bring this everywhere.

In the main compartment I have a card holder.  I pay for most things on my debit card, and I also keep my bus pass in here.  I also have a mascara and a compact mirror, along with a pen.  I always have a pen with me, you really never know when you’ll need one!

In the very back zipped compartment I have some plasters and some bobbles.  I also have some chewing gum.  I’m prone to blisters very often, so plasters are a must for me. Chewing gum is always an essential too, and I can’t go a day without a bobble!

So, thats all thats in my bag.  What are your bag essentials? Do we share any of the same things?

    I really like how minimal you have your bag, I carry literally everything with me “just incase”. I really need to work on 1. buying smaller bags, and 2. Only putting in what I actually need…. I’ll learn one day 🙂 Really enjoyed this post. Love being a little nosey 😛 x

      Smaller bags help with carrying around only what you need! X
