What's in my summer bag victoriabellxo

Seeing as these are one of my favourite posts to read, and my previous 'What's in my bag' did well ( you can read that one here) I thought I would share with you the things I cart around with me in the summer...which turns out to be significantly less than other times of the year.

First up the bag itself, I've had this for a long long time now, to be honest I'm surprised it's still going strong. That being said I can't remember where it's from but a tan cross-body saddle bag you can pick up pretty easily this time of the year. Here's one from Faith @ ASOS that's similar. It's a great sized bag; big enough to fit my wallet/purse and all of the other bits and bobs that make themselves at home in the one large compartment. I love the floral detailing on the front, I think it makes a great feminine alternative to the standard style saddle bag.

Moving on to the contents of the bag, aside from my wallet/purse here's a list of everything I manage to squeeze in; 

  1. iPhone 5s & headphones - instead of carrying a notepad & pen like I would in a bigger bag, the notes feature on here is my go to for everyday errands, reminders, blog post ideas etc.
  2. Sunglasses, when they're not on my head, which isn't often because I'm a serious squinter as soon as the sun appears. 
  3. A hair clip & tie because I have a love hate relationship with my (thick) hair in the warmer months. It's a constant battle between styling vs sweating.
  4. Perfume - Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy is my go to summer scent, so it's always in my bag
  5. A facial sunscreen with a good UV factor - this one is Factor 30 - because I tend to catch the sun on my face before I catch it anywhere else.
  6. Chapstick - I spoke about my love for this in my June Favourite's it's the only lip product I seem to be using at the moment, plus it has SPF 10 which is great.
  7. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is my holy grail concealer, it's medium, buildable coverage means it's great for blemishes, redness, under eyes - a great all rounder that I always keep with me.
  8. Rimmel London's Stay Matte Powder is another holy grail I keep with me at all times. It's such a great mattifying powder that keeps my face looking 'healthy glow' rather than 'hot sweaty mess'.
