What’s In My Bag – #BrunchClub Edition

in my bag, what's in my bag

It’s officially autumn in New Zealand, which means it’s time for another What’s In My Bag post.

Fun fact: my very first post on this blog was a what’s in my bag post; when I started, I hoped these would be regular/seasonal posts… I’ve only just gotten around to doing that; four years later. Looking back at that old post, I really hope my photography skills have improved, cause jeez those photos are terrible (I used a DSLR too…)

Anyway, yesterday, I went to my first #BrunchClub brunch and decided to take the newest addition to the bag familyon its first outing (I have a thing for bags and wallets – I remember when one of my sisters and said “you change wallets like people change undies”; I might have a bit of a problem) 

My newest bag is a backpack I bought from Equip; it is made out of cotton and fits a lot more stuff in it than I thought would have (which is great for me, because I am notorious for over stuffing bags and ruining their straps). 

In My Bag

what's in my bag, in my bag

heart Journal for blog ideas.
heart My gratitude list journal.
heart My 2014 planner*
heart Moisturiser (because damn, my skin has been dry lately).
heart The key and access card to my apartment.
heart My iPhone (in a case, because I keep dropping it).
heart My makeup bag.

Having three journals in my bag might have been a little excessive considering I didn’t have a pen…

Not Pictured

heart My husband’s camera (Olympus olympus pen mini e-pm2).

In My Makeup Bag

what's in my bag, in my bag

heart OPI Avojuice Skin Quencher in Holly Berry – if you love wintery/autumnal scents as much as I do, you will love this.
heart A Bath & Bodyworks handsanitiser in raspberry lemonade (I bought this while we were in Canada, and I’m going to be so sad when it runs out).
heart A cherry coke lipsmakers (because cherry coke),
heart A caramel cream flavoured Nivea Lp Butter.
heart Three lipsticks (I was feeling a bit indecisive about which colour I wanted to wear).
heart A Headache & Migraine essential oil (I got this from Le’Esscience, you should definitely check them out; Gillian is lovely).

What are you currently carrying around in your bag? Anything you can’t live without?

    That’s quite a stash!! I always have way too much in my bags and ruin the handles, and I take a second bag to work with my lunch in it too. At the moment an unusual item I have is a beanie that I’m knitting.

    3 notebooks! I was lucky I remember my diary.. but I did have 4 pens in my bag. I have about 3 main bags but I find my trouble is then remembering to switch all the stuff I need into the other bags
