What's In My Handbag: October 2012

Inspired by the revolutionary site WIMH and the hundreds of posts I nose through to see all of your favourite handbag essentials, I thought it was time to share what's inside my handbag. For those of you that know me, you'll know that I love simplicity. I can't stand a messy handbag full of old train tickets and receipts. I love my handbag to be minimal, organised and tidy and after recently reading that every handbag has up to 10,000 bacteria per square inch (ewwww) I'm keen to keep it that way! These are my October handbag essentials...

WIMH: What's In My Handbag

First up is my Metropol Personal Filofax in black. I highly recommend a Filofax, they're so easily adapted to suit the individual and you can buy all sorts of extras and add-ons as you wish. My diary is my life and I couldn't live without my gorgeous filofax, I've had mine three years and it's still in great condition! Secondly, the glasses. I'm extremely short sighted so venturing out without them is a big no no. These ones are from Specsavers.

I'm rarely without one of my beloved fashion monthlies and this week's choice is Harper's Bazaar. The November issue is beautiful so if you haven't already I'd urge you to go and pick it up. My iPhone is another one that never leaves my side along with the new studded purse I picked up last week from Primark! I love that it matches my handbag and is bang on trend with it's studded front.

Beauty wise I'm currently loving my Models Own nail polish in Nude Beige, I love mannequin nails and think they look great for Autumn. Matching that is my Kate Moss Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 003. Again I'm loving nudes for Autumn and the Lasting Finish lipsticks are really moisturising which is essential for the colder months. Chanel Chance is my go to perfume for Autumn/Winter. It's an intense, feminine fragrance that packs a punch for winter, I feel lost without it. And finally, I've already blogged about this beauty; The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream, a handy quick fix for a moisturising touch up.
