What's In My Handbag: Winter Edition

I did my first 'What's in my bag' post last year and it went down really well. I've decided to do another one about what I carry when the weather is a little colder. The bag was a gift from Laura for my 21st and I love it so much. It adds some much needed brightness to dark and dreary winter days. 

Winter Necessities 

I always like to carry around a pair of gloves with me from October onwards. I love this pair as it makes a normal coat stand out. I wear these with my navy coat and matching red scarf.

The sun gets really low in the winter and I always keep my sunglasses to hand so that I can keep the glare out of my eyes when I'm driving. These are my favourite ones because they really block out the sun and they're in a small enough pouch to fit into my handbag easily.

Lip Balm
Nothing says winter like chapped lips! I love this lip balm so so much. It tastes like Turkish Delights and it's really long lasting and moisturising.

Practical Things

I've had this purse for ages now but it's still going strong! I like the slight Art-Deco feel of it and I'm really impressed that it hasn't fallen apart like all my past purses.

Both of these keyrings are a staple in any bag I take out. I like simple ones which I know won't take up any room and I can find easily.

Phone Case
I was in two minds about getting this case. It was a toss up between the elephant and the Tardis. I'm definately getting the Tardis for my next one though!

Important Extras

Make Up Bag
I picked up this make up bag in Bicester Village last year (check out the blog post here) and I've used it almost every time I've been out since. It's super sturdy and fits everything I need in it.

Personalised Pen
I can never find my name on personalised things :( and so I always have to console myself with just the letter 'R'. However, this pen is really pretty and small enough to tuck into the corner of my bag. I always forget to carry a pen so this is staying in my handbag.

Rose Compact Mirror
This is another thing I always seem to forget just when I need it and have to end up doing my makeup in my phone screen. This compact mirror is so lovely and handy.
