I know the weather has been awful this week but I am being hopeful and when the sun does come back these are the items you’ll find in my bag. The bag that I am sure I will be using all summer is my new Michael Kors handbag which was my Christmas present from Ryan. I love everything about this bag it is the perfect size and a lovely summery colour.
Sunglasses are always an essential, I bought these a few years ago at the airport and they are still my favourites. They are normally on my head and not in my bag but they are still a spring/summer essential. It’s always nice to keep a small perfume in your bag to top up through the day as I don’t care how good the perfume is it is never going to last all day – well mine doesn’t anyway. I am currently loving Miss Dior, Eau De Parfum.
I don’t carry this product in my bag but I wanted to feature it anyway. This shimmer oil if from the Rosie for Autograph collection at M&S. I apply a tiny amount to my arms and legs before I go out and it gives my skin a light shimmer which is so pretty with tanned skin and amazing on holiday in the evenings!
I really don’t like wearing too much makeup in the summer, so if I am just going to a lighter look I will use this Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter. I have the shade Peach Kiss, although it is meant to be a highlighter it is quite dark for me so I use it as a glowy bronzer!
I go from one extreme to the other when it comes to lipsticks but 9 times out of 10 I will choose a nude lip. This one is one of my favourites, it is a L’Oreal matte lip pain in the shade Babe-In. You can read my full review here.
Other bits that you will find in my bag are my purse, hand sanitiser, chewing gum, phone and keys.
