What's in my work bag

 I'm an extremely nosy person and I love seeing what other people carry in their bags, so today I'm sharing what I carry with me on an everyday basis when I go to work. I used to be one of those people who carry everything but the kitchen sink with them because I wanted to be prepared for all eventualities, but now I've narrowed it down to what I think are pretty much just the essentials. It's still quite a lot of stuff but bear in mind that this is my work bag so when I carry this with me I'm out of the house for 10+ hours.
First let's talk about the bag, It's a beautiful suede bag from Zara and actually fits my MacBook so that's a huge plus for me! It's also big enough for me to carry my lunch in it every day which is a must for me because I don't want to carry a nice bag and then a plastic bag with my lunch in it. I love dressing my bags up with silk scarves because it means you can change the look of the bag really easily and I don't get bored of the bag as quickly.
Two things I always carry around with me are my bullet journal (post on this coming soon) as well as my Kindle, because you never know when you may want to read or write a list!

Another thing I always have in my bag is obviously my purse. I used to have a small purse or even just a card holder, but in Germany we use a lot of cash so I needed a bigger purse to accommodate for that. I got this one from Liebeskind in the sale and I love the simplicity of it as well as the subtle branding. It also has lots of slots for cards and cash, which makes it the perfect everyday purse!

 Next up we have some other essentials, which are my Fisherman's Friends (I don't go anywhere without these), my phone and various keys. My phone case is from Asos and I've had it for a few months now and it's worn incredibly well considering it was only £6. My car keys have a little nemo key chain on them because my car is called Nemo and obviously a photo from the Brighton Sealife Centre. All my other keys are in my beloved Louis Vuitton key holder which was a birthday present to myself that I bought in Paris last year. It was a bit of a ridiculous purchase admittedly but I use it every day and it keeps my keys together and prevents them from scratching up things in my bag.

Lastly, there's my little pouch of everything I might need at some point. I got it from TK Maxx and it actually has a little charger pack in it which is really useful. In there I also keep some pens and a plaster (just in case), my MAC blot powder, a lip balm (the Nuxe Reve de Miel is my absolute go to, I have three of them) and some lip products. I always carry a nude and a darker lip with me but when I'm wearing a different lipstick I will just pop it in this pouch as well so sometimes I end up with ten lipsticks because I keep forgetting to take them out.
So that's everything I have in my work bag!
