What's In My Handbag: March 2013

What's In My Handbag: March 2013

With the transition into Spring, I’ve promised to keep my handbag relatively clutter free - Tidy handbag, tidy mind, right? That said, my monthly fashion magazine can’t be compromised, I need something to keep myself entertained during my lengthy commute to work. This month I’ve been reading LOVE Issue 9 – The Clean Issue. One of my favourite publications, I’ve avidly collected LOVE since its release in 2009. It offers the perfect balance between fashion, beauty, art and photography without being too out there. LOVE magazine have dubbed this issue as ‘The Cara Takeover’, another reason why I just had to buy it. Cara, Kittens and Lipstick have been my main source of inspiration for this month.

F.Y.I I’m not, and probably never will be over the Cara Delevingne ‘thing’. In my opinion those bushy brows and pouty upper lip will never get old!

Sticking with the cat theme, this month my iPhone got a kitten shaped caseapp makeover. When I first ordered my personalised case I was a little worried I'd opted for something too simple, but as soon as it arrived I fell in love with it. It's such a cute design and will be perfect for spring - when it finally decides to arrive! Next up is my trusty iPod, this comes everywhere with me, plus the slate grey colour means it matches every outfit.

Now onto the interesting part - Beauty. Starting with my all time must-have beauty product Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum. This is my statement perfume, it's always in my handbag so I feel lost when I'm without it. I may have to invest in a Chanel atomiser in the future as the beautiful silver lid always ends up really scratched. Alongside that is one of my favourite lipsticks ever, MAC in Ruby Woo. After a long winter of deep wine lip colours I've been reaching for my slightly brighter shades this month. Doing so, I re-discovered an old favourite in Ruby Woo, it's the perfect matte red lipstick. Finally, my Topshop Dark Side of Nude Pallette in Prism. I've been doubling the black eyeshadow up as a smokey liner, and it has a handy compact mirror inside so it's perfect for touch ups!
