I've recently bought a gorgeous new Carvela Kurt Geiger handbag that I am absolutely in love with, so I thought I'd share it with you and do a what's in my handbag post. Now these posts are my absolute favourite to read, as the inner nosey parker in me really does come out.

 I adore the rose gold hardware against the black leather, I think it's an absolutely lovely touch. What's great about this bag is that it has two strap options, I can either wear it over the shoulder or on my arm. It's got a huge pocket in the front which I use to store my most used items such as my phone, keys, purse and bus pass. Inside the bag is a lovely silky lining which adds a lovely touch to the bag and this is where I store all my other items which you can see here:

I always carry a mini makeup bag around with my essentials for touching up my makeup, I have the MAC blotting powder which I apply with my Zoeva 106 Powder Brush, which is great for when your face just gets that little bit oily during the day. I also always have the lipstick I'm wearing on that day to reapply with and at the moment it's a MAC cremesheen in the shade 'crosswires.' I couldn't leave the house without my Zara White Eau de Toilette in there too, alongside a couple of hair bands and a little mirror to apply my make up with. 

At the moment I've been wearing my black jeans a lot, so I've been carrying around a lint roller with me which I picked up from Primark recently because oh does lint like to attach itself to black jeans! As the sun keeps rearing its head lately I've also been making sure to stick my sunglasses in my bag too, these are just a pair from H&M which I absolutely love and hope they never break on me. I also carry with me a little tan leather purse which I just put some paracetamol in, some hayfever tablets and a few tissues. I also carry with me my bus pass and a little ticket holder from Cath Kidston.

And the one thing I couldn't leave the house without is my Fossil purse, as the majority of the time the reason I'm going out tends to be for a shop and things get a bit spendy. I absolutely love this purse as it actually has enough pockets to fit all my cards in (and trust me, I have a lot!) I seem to pick up a card everywhere I go, from my bank card, to a waterstones card, to a millie's cookies one, I seem to collect them everywhere I go!

So that's my essentials for carrying in my bag, obviously things like my phone and keys aren't in the photo but we can just pretend that they are.

Is there anything in my bag that you think I've missed? What's your handbag essentials?
