What's in your bag?

Hello, I have something a lil bit different today! Over on A Pretty Nest Marie-Eve is having a link party for us to show what's in our handbags...and seeing as I'm a little bit nosey, I joined in!!!

So here is what was in my handbag today.....
Today was not an average day - and my bag contents reflect this!
My trusty Betsy Johnson - it's a really great bag as it holds a LOT. I treated myself to this when I got my first job as Editor a few years back and it's still going strong :)

SO what is in here???
Birthday card for my niece (she is FOUR next month OMG!), delivery of cabouchons for my shop I collected today (all the way from the UK!), and passport photos from my morning at the immigration office today - I DIDN'T GET MY VISA RENEWED and have to wait for them to decide whether I get to stay in NZ or not! How rude! hahaha
My purse (from Witchery) and a thermos cup from T2 in Melbourne - I was going on a work road-trip straight after the immigration office and so thought I might need a cup of tea for the road - I didn't so just carried it with me all day anyway!!!

My trusty pink Filofax!!!!!!! My mum asked me 'does anyone still use those!?' when I told her I'd ordered one - well Mum, I do!!! hahaha

The rest of the photos won't rotate sorry - I don't know why Blogger is saving them this way around :'(
Proof I may be the last Filofax user!!
My Radley passport cover - a gift from a friend when I left the UK
Which is now EMPTY because immigration have my passport with my visa application
Keys and leather gloves (Primark)

Sunglasses (cheapies I just leave in my bag for winter sun), headphones and camera cord
Make up bag, postal receipt for my latest shop sale :D, random business card, hair elastic and headband, painkillers and my business card wallet

A lot of stuff in one small(ish) bag!!


  1. Love your bag! It's always good to have one that holds plenty. The pink Filofax is gorgeous too. I used to use one but ditched mine when I got my iPhone. Have a great weekend xoxo

  2. OMG - so many things in your bag, hehe.
    I just carry my phone, wallet and camera around - maybe some lip balm! :p
    What's the go with immigration!? I hope you can stay! :(


  3. I think we belong to the same "prepared for anything" club! I love the cute passport cover, too. Totally adorable!
