Handbags at Dawn

Not the most imaginative post today as I'm posting inbetween getting ready for work!  I've seen a lot of bloggers do posts similar to this showing the contents of their handbags so I thought I would be a sheep and follow along just for today.  Well I'm not gonna lie, this is what my handbag looked like before I cleared it out:

It was a dark and cluttered place before, filled with old bus tickets, receipts, sweet wrappers and even a menu for the Harvester (incidentally I used that today and ordered a Harvester Burger.  The bad stuff always tastes the best I find).

This is what it looks like now, all the rubbish is gone and these are the only things left it it.  The bag itself is from Primark.

1.Purse.  Needs no explaining really, apart from that I got it in a River Island sale last year and it hasn't gone tatty yet like my old ones used to.

2.Pressed powder from The Body Shop.  This isn't what I wear day to day, it's only in there for shine emergencies and because it has a good mirror in it!

3.Glasses by Red or Dead.  I use them for reading, computers, work etc or sometimes just to feel more clever :)

4.iPhone.  Again, needs no explaining.  For anyone that has one, you must download Temple Run as it is extremely addictive and if you play it on the bus you may even miss your stop! 

5.Benefit Benetint.  I love this product so much, it lasts longer than any gloss I've ever used and it is a lovely coral colour that suits my pasty skin, and it works well for daytime looks as well as evening ones.

6.Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer.  It's in here because it is a really good cover up, but I find it doesn't actually last as long as it says it does, so I sometimes need top-ups.

7.Rimmel eyebrow pencil.  Stupidly, my eyebrows are much lighter than my hair, so they quite literally are nothing without this pencil. 

8.Headphones, to put into my iPhone.  The last songs I were listening to were from Pearl Jam's 'Riot Act' album.

9.Things you can't see:  My camera, because I was using it to take these photos!  It is a Nikon D5000, I've noticed that quite a few bloggers favour the Canon 550d, which is more expensive than mine.  I haven't upgraded for a while because I find that this camera takes high quality photos etc and also because I believe that anyone can take great photos on any camera, not just high end ones!  (And I also can't afford one! 8-) ).  Also missing is the book I'm reading at the moment, 'The Boleyn Inheritance'.  I'm obsessed with all things Tudor, it started with the tv series 'The Tudors' which I watch almost every day (Johnathan Rhys Meyers & Henry Cavill are in it so you can't blame me really), and I've started reading books on them ever since.  

So there you have it!  If you made it to the end of this rambling post then thank you and well done! xx
