What’s in my bag?

What’s in my bag?

Rosie tagged me to do a “What’s in my bag?” post and I thought it would be fun!

I’m too lazy to take pictures of every item, so I’m mostly just going to give you a list of what’s in my bagΒ right now:


Well, it’s no surprise, is it? I’m surprised there’s not more than one in there because I’m running out of places to keep them.


This one gets a picture because I LOVE myΒ purse. You may have noticed I’m a big Cath Kidston fan.

What's in my bag - purse

Grape flavoured wax

In case my braces misbehave.

Chewing gum

…which I won’t be having now I have braces so I don’t know why it’s still in there.


This is hanging around in my bag from when I’d take it to work. Otherwise, when I’m out and about, I don’t really use it.


Always good to have in case I suddenly decide to leave the country.

Just kidding – the real, and much less exciting reason, is I tend to give my driving license to Neal to look after if we go somewhere for drinks, but I kept forgetting to get it back. So, I’ve chucked my passport in there in case I need I.D. when we are not together.


I get bad headaches sometimes which make me very grumpy so I take these everywhere to be prepared.

A Paperchase receipt

Probably for another notebook which I didn’t need but had to have.

Manicure set

I think I just keep this in my bag so I know where it is. I only ever seem to use it at home.

Two pens

A top tip from me to you: have two in case one runs out. If they both run out, that’s bad luck.

Camera battery

And yet, no camera in there…

    God I love “What’s in my bag’ posts, I am entirely too nosy! Your bag sounds a lot like my own – filled with essentials, yet with random stuff that doesn’t really even get used. It’s also a gorgeous bag, I love a floral.

      Yep, that just about sums it up! πŸ™‚ Neal said to me the other day “you’ve become one of those people who has so much stuff in your bag, you can’t find anything” and I realised he was right.

      Thanks, lovely – I’m tempted to get the phone case to match! x

    I love these kinds of posts! I agree with you about having more than one pen, I probably have about ten sitting at the bottom of my bag hahaha

      I am actually surprised there isn’t more in there, because I have a habit of assuming there aren’t any so I chuck another one in “to be safe” πŸ™‚

    Lovely post!! I love to carry notebooks as well, in fact I love to have notebooks everywhere. I love paperchase as well- I wish I had a store closer to me (but at least it helps me save money haha) 😊😊

      I’m definitely the same way when it comes to notebooks! Oh, even if I was nowhere near Paperchase, I’d be ordering online. I’m not safe anywhere! πŸ˜‰

    He he, I love these kinda posts, I’m so nosey! I love your Cath Kidson purse, I have the soap bag in that exactly same design. Yay for cats! You can never have too many notebooks. And Paperchase receipts, this sounds very similar to my bag. Great post Ruth, thanks for sharing πŸ’– xx

    I’m so nosy so I love these kinds of posts! The purse is so pretty and grape flavoured wax sounds interesting. I can relate to the receipts thing for sure. Brilliant post Ruth!

    I love such posts 😊
    It kinda lets you to know the person from other perspective πŸ˜€
    I don’t understand carrying around the manicure set tho πŸ˜…

      Me neither… I should really take it out!

  10. 10th July 2018 / 3:21 pm

    Love these kind of posts and especially when they feature Cat Kidston items!
    That bag is lovely, I’ve never seen it before – is it fairly new out?

    Ahh the brace wax… I never used it as it was positively USELESS for me

      It’s an older bag – I got it around the beginning of this year πŸ™‚ I haven’t tried to the braces wax either, but I was just being stubborn! x

    The floral bag is so pretty and I’m in love with your kitty purse.. anything cat related immediately gets a thumbs up from me.

    You’ve got a very practical bag! The bag itself is so lovely! Also never knew grape flavoured wax existed!

    Lots of love,

      Thanks lovely! I haven’t had any breaks yet, but I’ve only had them on for a month so we’ll see what happens!

    I’m so nosy that I love these “What’s in my Bag?” posts. I love your cat purse. I might need to do a new post like this as I have a new bag. Hihi.
