What's In My Bag? | MegBolderson.

A bag is an essential item, an extension of your arm and a roof to hide all of life's small necessities. A bag is also an accessory, a very sought after accessory, and one I am therefore going to discuss with you today. Now some would say this is perhaps this is a little extensive for everyday use, and some would alternatively say this is just the basics to carry around, but this is what I carry so I thought why not share with you what is hanging on my arm on an everyday basis!

Cut to the chase...

The Bag
In my case, this is a little structured satchel that I found in Primark of all places for under £10! Some would say it's somewhat of a Cambridge Satchel 'knock-off' (which I lust for), but once you get past that and focus on the actual design and capacity of the bag, it's actually rather perfect! I love it and would love to own it in more than one colour. Satchels are so easy to style and transform an outfit, I would definitely recommend one if you are looking to add practicality and elegance to an outfit!

A Magazine
Especially if you're the typical globe trotter and like to travel a lot, you will find yourself becoming extremely bored extremely quickly, so a magazine such as Vogue will keep you interested and simultaneously aware of current trends! And as Fall has quickly crept up on us this year, staying in the loop in the fashion industry is nothing other than a requirement!

I'm sure every one owns one of these so they are pretty self explanatory, this little beaded one was again from Primark for under £5. Amazing!

Makeup Bag Containing Essentials
A transparent makeup Bag is an essential I never knew I needed up until a few weeks ago, they are so much easier because you know exactly where to go when looking for cosmetics, therefore are less time consuming and you aren't rummaging through your makeup bag for half an hour trying to find your lipstick. Now I packed this one a little too full, I wouldn't usually carry every single thing that this little transparent pouch accommodates (in the picture), but I would typically carry around a lip balm (Such as Vaseline or perhaps a lipstick), and eyeliner, and most importantly a powder! My skin tends to get a little oily at around mid-day so a powder is extremely important, my favourite is Rimmel Stay Matte because it really does keep your face matte without looking cakey! But you already knew that...

Chewing Gum
 Again, pretty self explanatory, just throw one in after meals and you're good to go! 

This one is more of a summer essential but I hate nothing more than squinting the whole day so a good pair of sunglasses is crucial to protect your eyes from the sun! I purchased mine a few weeks ago from Ray-Ban, they are an investment I know I will be satisfied with for years!

Dry Shampoo
Recently I've found my hair gets oily a lot quicker than it used to, so dry shampoo is an absolute must when it comes to long-distance travelling!

Salt Spray
 This is one I picked up from Toni&Guy a few months ago and I'm loving it so far, the smell isn't amazing but it does a rather adequate job at adding texture and volume to my hair.

Hand Lotion
This is one I was given in a perfume box but any kind of lotion is fine. With winter just around the corner my hands tend to get very dry and even crack sometimes which isn't only uncomfortable but unsightly and painful. Just a tiny drop of lotion lathered onto my hands instantly relieves the pain and moisturises my hands perfectly. 

A Back Combing Brush
 These little guys are perfect for adding instant volume to your hair without a huge effort on your part, win!

And finally, the perfume I'm currently loving! 'Dolce&Gabanna L'eau The One', I've spoken about this before but I honestly can't explain how beautiful and feminine this perfume is. The scent is completely unique and quite extraordinary! To say the packaging is completely minimalist the scent is just euphoric and like nothing I've ever smelt before!

That's it for today lovelies! I hope you enjoyed this post. 'What's In My Bag' posts are some of my favourite so make sure you leave me the link to yours if you have one!
