It's my bag

A look at some of my daily essentials, carried today in my 'pumpkin' Bayswater bag (should have got it out last week really!)

Clockwise from bottom left:

  • Anya Hindmarch 'Girlie Stuff' pouch (containing the all important cards, tickets, receipts and other essentials)
  • Mulberry circular coin purse
  • Smythson turquoise phone holder
  • L'Occitane Lavande hand sanitiser (I go to some mucky places)
  • Micheal Kors sunglasses from (bargain from TX Maxx)
  • Work pass
  • Guerlain Mitsouko perfume
  • L'Occitane Lavande hand cream (bit of a thing for lavender!)
  • Mulberry yellow pencil case
  • Assortment of pens (I am a total pen freak!)
  • Vaseline 'pink bubbles' limited edition lip balm (get some fast before it's discontinued - it's divine)
  • Leighton Denny crystal nail file (brilliant product)

I was working today but have tomorrow off. Bliss and joy, the schools are back and I can have a peaceful potter. Coffee will be consumed. An almond croissant may even be consumed. (Though I have to say, post summer belated correctional diet is going great guns. I'm eating less. Duh - why didn't I think of that sooner?!)

White Company will be visited. Candles will be purchased:

  • 'Winter' to celebrate the season; and 

  • 'Blanc' because, err.....  my bathroom needs it..

I need to immerse myself in the beautiful, happy and serene things of life. I see enough of the miserable and ugly.

By the way, I toyed with a snood tutorial as someone suggested, but it would be comical!!  If still needed let me know ;-)


  1. You like Mulberry then, do you? lol!! I'm very jealous of all your Mulberry bits 'n pieces - love them. Also love The White Company and spend my time moaning about the fact that they don't have a shop or concession in Dublin. Enjoy your day off, sounds like you have it planned beautifully!

    1. I do like Mulberry... but it's as much to do with the fact that there is a convenient outlet store close by rather than me deliberately hunting them out - if it were any other brand, my acquisitions would have been equally prolific! x

    2. PS - shame about no White Co store in Dublin - hopefully that will change soon! x

  2. I would love a Mulberry bag - I think I will make it my New Year goal and save each month.

    1. Google Mulberry factory shop / outlet - you'll get a perfect one for half price! x

  3. I love that you've not gone for the classic Mulberry Oak colour and such a sharp colour too - fab for making a statement. You have honed tastes m'lady given the contents of your bag - Smythson - how lovely - oh you've set the bar high this time! Mine is full of fruit winders, scrappy bits of paper, a coach purse which has had pen leaked on to it and hopefully nothing festering :o). If I was being marked, the teacher would definitely say "could do better".

    1. Oh yes and a tutorial on snoods please!

    2. Never fear, mine has sweet paper and bits of Ben 10 toys... but thought I'd 'edit' those!

  4. A day of coffee, croissants and candles - couldn't be better x


Please feel free to leave a comment. I love hearing your thoughts, and will reply to as many as I can :-)
