Today my To-Do list was enormous because I am off to London with my boyfriend tomorrow! This may seem very banal to some, but apart from the odd shopping trip and two days of work experience at the V&A last summer (see more on that here), I haven't spent very much time in the capital, so I'm pretty excited! Considering I had some serious packing to do anyway, I thought I'd take a few snaps of my handbag essentials for the train journey and more generally trotting around London town.
iPad mini, Apple, £259; purse, SuiteBlanco €12; ticket holder, Cath Kidston, £6; Hand Food, Soap & Glory, £2.50; glasses case, Poundland, £1; comb, Poundland, £1; Eight Hour Cream, Elizabeth Arden, £25; Wayfarers, Ray-Ban, £120; Bright Here Bright Now, Soap & Glory, £12; floral notebook, Home Bargains, 80p; Baby Lips lip balm, Maybelline, £2.99; nail file, Superdrug, £1; mirror; Tanya Burr's Aurora lipgloss, feelunique.com, £6.99
Here is a little snap of my handbag beauty essentials, with the aim of keeping my lips, face and hands hydrated on the stuffy train journey. I've also packed a comb, nail file and mirror in case of any minor beauty disasters!
I'm arriving tomorrow morning and leaving on Sunday night, so though we aren't there for long I want to pack in as much as possible. Let me know if you have any recommendations of what I can do whilst in London and if you'd like me to do a full What's in My Bag post in the future. Also I'm so sorry about the less than impressive photo quality, I will never leave my digital camera at home whilst at uni ever again.
