I spotted this dreamy pink handbag on Freddy Cousin-Brown’s Instagram story and instantly fell in love with it, so I headed straight over to Colette Hayman’s website as I’ve been looking for a pretty new handbag and this is just so girly, romantic and the perfect Spring accessory because of the cute cherry blossom embroidered detail! It’s a structured tote handbag which I love because I think they look really luxe and keep their shape for longer!
It was also only £36 and the website offered a discount code bringing it down to a £21 steal, I knew I couldn’t pass up such a bargain for a beautiful bag like this! It’s also got lots of pockets and space because I usually go for larger bags but this still has plenty of room for all my essentials. In case your wondering this is the Mara Floral Tote but if you click on the link I’ve provided it will take you straight to this handbag.
Every time I buy a new bag it’s almost therapeutic cleaning out all of my junk that I’ve seem to have accumulated you know things like scrunched up receipts, sweet wrappers, random change that’s escaped from my purse. But now I have a lovely new de-cluttered handbag to start off a new year and a new month because it’s finally February after what feels like 3 month long January! So here’s a little look at the ‘very pink’ things I keep in my handbag.
Minus my trusty rose gold iPhone 7+ as I was using it to take photos, but I always carry my phone with me for my camera, music, Instagram, emails etc on the go and my passport has been taken out of the equation also because the burgundy colour just doesn’t work for me
I have my gorgeous rose gold ‘Glitter Bug Stacy’ Kate Spade purse which Simon gifted to me three years ago now and it still looks near enough brand new! So it was such a good investment and i’m still smitten with it’s sparkly rose gold beauty and always receive lots of compliments on it, unfortunately this purse isn’t available anymore but Kate Spade have so many other pretty purses to choose from!
I also always have my holy grail Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder with me for on the go touch ups! It’s the best face powder I’ve ever used as it sets my makeup flawlessly, it’s soft focus micro-powder so has a blurring effect without ever looking cakey! As you can probably tell though I’ve majorly hit pan and need to re-purchase a new one asap.
I like to write things down and keep note of anything I need to remember, make to do lists and jot down my fairytale dreams that kinda thing! And I have an obsession for pretty stationary and recently bought this blush pink ‘Belle’ notebook from the Disney Store. I adore the sketch style artwork, she looks so feminine and romantic, Simon also surprised me and had it personalised with my name which I thought was so cute.
I currently have the cutest mini bottle of one of my favourite ever perfumes, Miss Dior. This fragrance is so charming, elegant and leaves me smelling like fresh cut roses.
I think it’s safe to say that this Ted Baker Enchanted Dreams card holder was made for me! It’s the prettiest pale pink, with rose gold details, butterflies and a magical enchanting Unicorn. This will come in so handy for any spare change and keep my train tickets and cards safe, I love it so much.
I’ve also got my little cute Laduree Parisienne Macarons key charm which I decorate my handbag with! This handbag did have a fluffy pink bag charm that came with it but I swapped it for this! I had wanted one of these bag charms for the longest time and it’s a little reminder that I keep with me to always dream of Paris plus it gives my handbag that extra touch of girlyness.
I also keep with me a lipstick and powder brush too! I’ve been wearing Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk a lot lately and I thought I would change it up for this new Rouge Dior lipstick in the shade ‘sensual matte’ as it looks like a perfect matte nude for everyday wear and it always feel so chic to pull out a more luxury lipstick. My powder brush is the prettiest pink brush in all the land, it’s from SL Miss Glam Beauty and is apart of the Mermaid Glam Set.
Lastly but one of the most important items in my bag are my house keys complete with cute novelty key rings of Marie and a unicorn.
What do you think of my new handbag and the contents I carry? What are some of your handbag essentials?
