My Handbag/ School Bag Essentials

My Handbag / School Bag /Everyday Essentials

In the last week I have started a new year at school, I take this little bag with me that includes all my everyday essentials. Of course this it totally personal but this is what I like to take. When I'm not at school I will put the bag into my handbag. It's so much easier to keep it all in a little bag than having it wondering around my bag. 

Makeup: I only carry powder and concealer as I feel thats what you top up the most throughout the day. I don't like to lug my whole makeup bag around with me everyday. My bag is already heavy enough! I also like to carry a lip balm for when I'm suffering from dry lips. I've been loving the Babylips as you also get a slight tint of colour thats acceptable for school. 

Hair: I carry a couple of bobbles and grips as they come in handy when you have PE and when you're having a bad hair day. Recently have been loving these clips from Primark they are really good at clipping your fring up when it becomes annoying. 

Perfume and deodorant: I carry a travel size perfume bottle, for a quick spritz and freshen up. I also carry deodorant as I don't want to be smelly throughout the day, especially after PE. 

Hand sanitizer, hand cream and tissues: These aren't that exciting but they are essensuals. Sanitizer always comes in handy when it's lunch time and you're on the move. I love this Soap & Glory one as it smells nicer than the other ones because it doesn't have that chemical, alcohol smell. Hand cream because I hate having dry hands and this one from l'occitane is my favourite. Finally tissues there an essential, they don't need that much explaining.  

Other: Items not pictured! Chewing gum or mints as it's always nice to have fresh breath throughout the day. Plasters, I usually put these in when I'm wearing some uncomfortable shoes at the weekend when out shopping. Blisters are the worst! 

What's your essential?

Wishlist: September

   I love converse, I already own a couple of pairs and wear them all the time but I don't own a black pair so they need to be added to my collection. They are the classic style and look great casual or dressy. 

   Tartan was big last year I really wanted the one from Zara but they sold out really quickly, New Look have done a great dupe, I love this blue one but they also have a orange and red one (which is exactly the same as Zara's one but I can't find it online). 
   Recently I have been loving photography and have been taking my camera out a lot and snapping away. I only own the kit lens so would love to upgrade to make my pictures even better. I have spoke to a few bloggers and read some reviews on it and no one has a bad word to say about it. 

   I only have apple earphones that came with my phone, I want to try some headphones because I can never find earphones that fit my ear or don't hurt my ears. 

   My second pair of shoes in my wishlist but when I saw these on the office website, I just had to add them. I love loafers! You may of noticed a pattern because in my May wishlist I included some loafers. I love these from Office they are a lovely colour and will look great with jeans.  

What's on your wishlist for September?
