Hey! I have already done a couple of ‘What’s in my Handbag’ posts before, but I seem to buy new handbags as often as milk or bread so I thought that I would do another updated version! This latest addition to my collaction is the Zara Office City Bag, which most people actually bought this time last year, but I have only just taken the plunge because until now I never thought that I would need a bag with so many compartments. It is a gorgeous bag, I find myself often gazing lovingly at it or going through it for no reason! The inside lining is a deep burgundy/wine colour and the gold zips compliment it perfectly. It cost a cool £59.99 which is more than I would usually pay, but for the size and amount of room in it, it’s actually really good value. The is a padded side which is large enough to fit a laptop in, and within this a smaller compartment which is just the right size to pop an ipad/tablet into. I did have my Samsung Galaxy Tab in there but it’s come out again whilst I put some downloads onto it.
I haven’t got too much in it yet, as I’m still in the process of carefully picking out various things. But during the post Christmas sales, I picked up a couple of Soap and Glory sets in Boots and one of them included a small sized Hand Food moisturiser which I absolutely love, so that has gone straight into the bag! A couple of standard things have gone in too, including my cute little Paperchase organiser, my new 2014 diary and my glasses that I hate. Most importantly though, is my new Ted Baker purse! I dragged my boyfriend to John Lewis last weekend to hunt through the sales and there was nothing left of Ted Baker, so I pretty much gave up hope. On my way back through the bag/purse section though I found this rose gold and pink purse perched on top of a load of other brands, and it was like fate. I picked it up straight away and couldn’t believe my luck, I love rose gold and hoped to find one. The beauty of it all was that the price tag said £89, and with a gift card in my other hand I thought WHY NOT?! and took it straight to the til where….it went through for £50! Seriously, that kind of luck never ever happens to me. In total I paid £25 for the purse and I have been gushing about it ever since!
This is a very empty looking bag for now, in a day or two I can guarantee that it will be weighed down by various things, including too many lipsticks, other random make up bits, bus tickets, receipts, sweets and probably a spare pair of shoes or something silly like that.
