What's In My Bag: 2016 Edition

Who doesn't love having a root around someone's handbag, we're all such a nosy bunch! For quite some time now my bag of preference has firmly fitted in the 'mini' category, so there wasn't a great deal of point showing you a purse, phone, lipstick and keys, all squeezed into a tiny handbag. I decided at Christmas that a new year needed a new bag, or at least a new to me bag. I had meant to pick up the pink version of this Zara bag last year but it slipped from my mind, and having sold out, I had a little look online and found the bag version for a snip of the price on Ebay. 

Apparently I felt I needed a couple new items to start the new year with, starting with this super swish diary from Kate Spade. I put on Instagram that despite having my own house, car and a baby, there's nothing that makes me feel like I'm properly adulting than a fancy journal. It does make me more organized too, because it's much too expensive to just sit on my desk being unused the whole year round. I also treated myself to a new purse, this one is from ASOS

Another lovely start to the week was that my phone was due an upgrade; I was considering straying from the iPhone (for some absurd reason!) but decided to get the Rose Gold iPhone 6s and got a reasonable contract. I absolutely love it; for once the battery power seems to be decent, and the camera is a lot sharper, making for better instagram shots (find me here!) There's all the expected little extras in there too; a Roger & Gallet hand cream, a couple lip products and a mini perfume. Becoming a Mum means there's a couple new bits thrown in too; a muslin cloth is needed on hand at all times, as is some Lanolin, just in case we've had a particularly sore nursing session!

What's in your 2016 bag?

  5. Love that diary! I just really love Kate Spade in general :) I wish I was the diary type of person as there are so many pretty ones out there, but sadly I live by the calendar app on my iPhone.. Which isn't as pretty as your lovely Kate Spade diary ;-)

  6. Your diary is gorgeous! I really like Kate Spade and need to try and get my hands on a few more goodies :)
