What's in my bag? Christmas edition.

Hello everyone!

It seems like it has been a while since I’ve written one of these posts, where you get to see the inside of my bag; you can see all similar posts here. Anyway, in keeping with the theme of ‘Blogmas’, I thought I would show you what’s inside:

The bag:

This was a ‘treat me purchase’ from Sainsburys; I got it when Black Friday events seemed to be everywhere! I had seen a handbag in red that caught my eye; however, it was a bit too big for me, so I settled on this. It also seemed like a bit of a smarter option-a bag that can be casual, but can also be used for events. You can buy it here. 
(As an aside: I took off the longer handle, as it kept trailing on the ground.)

The insides:

All in all, there is a lot of stuff that you can fit into this bag! Perfect for someone like me-blogger, student, trainee journalist..

Going from top to bottom:

  1.  Headphones! I posted a while ago about having headphones in wherever I go, due to sensory intrusion; these really help to counteract this.
  2. Filofax. Because have to plan everything. Besides, it keep tracks of my blog information, budgets, appointments, and things like that.
  3. Letters. Concerning a NUJ membership and a railcard!
  4. Clip from Pocket Notebooks.
  5. Purse. Complete with my train tickets, nectar card, debit card, and not much else..
  6. iPhone charger. Since the new update, my battery runs out incredibly fast.
  7. Torch. Because I can’t see in the dark on the way home from a lecture.
  8. Christmas cards for the Christmas cards exchange project, ready to be posted.
  9. Dr Paw Paw lip balm.
  10. Collection of writing implements; the Bic’s are for Shorthand, due to the finer points.
  11. Notebook. My jotter from Pocket notebooks.

      The thing is, I’m always curious as to what is inside other people’s Filofaxes-it’s a terrible habit! But they are sooo useful..

    Ahh. Your bag and contents are so cute! I also invested in a filofax, but as excited as I am about planners… I never seem to be able to keep it up. I’ve settled on a bullet journal in my moleskine for now… Hope to at least keep that going! I used to do these posts back in the days, when I was a student, but now I kind of want to do them as a professional!
