02 This is a cheap Primark small satchel bag. It's lasted a lot longer than I expected as I use it quite often for quick trips out to the shop, and my dance school. It has a couple of side pockets which are useful for kerby grips and chewing gum and it's usually full of wrappers and old tissue packets! It has a small holdall handle, and a long shoulder strap as well which is the one I use most often.
03 This is possibly my favourite bag that I've ever owned. Despite being inconveniently small, it is perfect for nights out and birthday parties. It has a pink silk lining inside and is black velvet on the outside - hense why it collects so much dust! I love the detailing around the edges and the tassells on the flap. It has a tiny inside pocket which just about fits in my phone. If I use this bag I have to use a smaller purse to enable me to fit all my other bits and bobs in the bag!
on twitter you'll have seen this comment - I always manage to get it around my mouth and in the corners of my lips, and I'm a chocoholic so a tissue is always handy! I'm such a Mum I know!
07 This is my favourite lipstick from No. 17. I love it so much I accidently bought it twice! I have no idea what it's called as the writing has rubbed off the label. But it's quite similar to the colour of my lips but a little more peachy/pinky and glossier. It's a moisturising one so it doesn't dry out my lips which is great for me, and makes it really easy to quickly apply it - perfect for nights out!
08 I don't know what I'd do without my Carmex! I used to use Vaseline all the time, but I found it just provided a shiny/greasy layer on my lips and never actually moisturised them properly. I chose the tube Carmex as it's really easy to apply with the rounded applicator. You know it works because I often get a tingling sensation! It also has a nice feel to it and doesn't leave a greasy layer for hours after application. I use it throughout the day as my lips get really dry.
09 Your average compact mirror. I don't use a mirror that often as I'm not too fussed about what I look like during the day, and on a night out I just pop to the toilets anyway. This is sort of a 'just-in-case' item, for example, if I have food in my teeth or have fluff in my hair (you'd be suprised at how often this happens) or to re-apply my lipstick.
