Heya! I'm back again! You know, today is just one of those days where I'm feelin' good, school is almost over and it's overall just been a great day and I hope you all are having an awesome day too! Anywho, so the other day I went out to this kinda summery festival-like gathering. The sun was shining (which was a surprise and quite frankly a luxury for London!) and there was music and food and it was all good. There were rides and a ton of things to do, unfortunately, I didn't take my camera with me just because it was such a busy place and I didn't want to loose it and it would get heavy after a while having to lug it around with me. So I couldn't take photos of what it was like in there, but I thought I could give you a little taster as to what it was like being there by sharing with you the things I brought with me. So, commence my What's In My Bag Summer Festival Edition!
So starting off my bag is from 'Zara' and its a gorgeously simple everyday kinda bag. It's dark navy blue with gold as the accent colour. I believe that it was £40 but was reduced to £16.99 and this is the bag I decided to carry with me!
Well my phone is an essential really, especially for getting those tumblr-y Instagram pics!
Since the weather is warming up, it's always nice and handy to keep a bottle of water with ya. I just brought with me regular standard water but you can spruce it up by chucking in some fruits to make it a detox water!
I always have a hand sanitizer in my bag because they just come in so handy and they almost always have the most amazing smell.
For any event some loose change is personally one of my necessities. It comes in use for a lot of things (food, drinks etc.)
Lipbalm / Lipstick
Lipbalm is 100% an essential for avoiding chapped lips and I just chucked in the lipstick colour that I was wearing that day, which was MAC Polished Up for top up throughout the day.
For such a sunny day, I definitely needed ma sunglasses so I just popped those into my bag. They are like holographic on the lens and a gorgeous wooden pattern on the frame.
Hair bands / grips
You see, my hair has a mind of it's own so if a section of hair wants to come out of the ponytail, it will! SO I've got to have a few grips and spare hair bands just in case of emergencies. (Tehehe!)
I was out for quite a long time so I thought that it would only make sense to bring some food along with me just to keep me going. Fruit, energy bars, wraps or anything compact but still filling is great.
I just packed a small blanket so that I could sit on it when I was there instead of sitting on the grass. I could also lay out the food and drinks that I brought with me too.
Tissues / Gum
Well, I'm not going to say too much about these because they are just your typical handbag type essentials really!
My mirror comes in really hand just for checking if my makeup has smudged and for when I'm just quickly touching up my lipbalm or lipstick.
Just a quick spritz of some body mist I think is always a nice little touch to make myself smell that bit little nicer like 'The Ocean Breeze' or some sort of 'Flower Blossom' type scent!
Besides all empty chewing gum wrappers and the food crumbs, this what I carried in my bag! (Tehehe!) I did also bring a little hand held fan and a hat just in case it got really hot. I hope you liked this week's post and be sure to let me know in the comments what you would say some of your ultimate handbag essentials are. Next week will be the beginning of the summer holidays and you can be expecting to see lots of new post going up all throughout the summer! I will speak to ya all next week!
