What's in my Handbag | Date Night Edition

Hello Lovelies!

So the other night myself and my boyfriend decided to treat ourselves and go out for a meal and drinks for no particular reason. Of course I took this as an excuse to get all dressed up and make up done all nicely (probably a little OTT for a Chinese but I don't get out much haha!) So I was going to do the usual OOTD post but I decided to change it up abit and show you what I carried in my handbag on the night!

So the bag of choice on the night was my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac with rose gold hardware. I never thought I would love a bag as much as I love this one. I have been using it everyday since I got it and even though its a smaller bag, I can still fit all of my essentials in it! So starting off with the obvious I carry around my iPhone everywhere I go, honestly at this stage it's like another limb and I feel genuinely lost without it! I love the phone case I have on it at the moment which is from MrNutCase it has pictures of myself and my friends on it and it always cheers me up when I look at it. Next is my card holder. Since getting this bag I've taken out my massive Guess wallet and got this lovely card holder from Debenhams, and I normally carry around a little coin purse from Penneys/Primark but I took this out for that night. 

I didn't bring out a whole pile of make-up with me other than my lipstick of choice which was YSL's Peach Passion- I love this lipstick so much, and Bourjois's Healthy Balance powder which is amazing and it has a nice big mirror too! I brought my No.7 kabuki brush to use with it. I brought my little travello rip-off that I got off eBay for about €5 and it has Just Cavalli in it which is my perfume of choice lately! And finally I have some Smints..pretty self explainatory! 

So that is what I brought out with me on Saturday night, what are your "going-out" handbag essentials? 


  1. Everytime I see this bag of yours I like it more x

  2. Gorgeous bag. Perfume is definitely a carry around essential for me! Usually at least two travelos so I have a choice :)

  3. Mine is pretty much the same, I just don't take powder with me because I don't have an oily T-zone, so there is usually nothing to touch up, but I do take Nars The Happening Palette because my eyeshadows tend to crease a lot and this palette has all the shades that I usually use :)
