What's in my bag? #1

Shana handbag RRP: 12,99€ @ Shana

Hello lovelies!

You've guessed right by the title and the picture — I'm writing a What's In My Bag? post! I'm tagging it as #1 because I'm sure I will do plenty in the future or in different occasions as in "what's in my bag when I go to university" or "what's in my bag when I go out at night"! This is a normal one — what I usually carry with me everyday when I go to run an errand or just to be out and about the city.

Pencil case RRP: 1€ @ eBay
Keep Calm Badge RRP: 2€ @ eBay

I carry that little pencil case with me. Of course that means I carry a notebook with me — and that's right! I usually have a diary and a notebook with me. Or sometimes just the diary! It depends on the day but it's always good to write some ideas or doodle a little bit. 

Oh, and yes! I know the pencil case has something written in such bad English. The original picture didn't look like that so as an English Studies student I cringe a little bit when I read it — but the design is way too cute it reminds me of the AriZona Tea bottles!

ENRI University Planner (Diary) RRP: 3,99€ @ Carrefour
Floral Notebook RRP: 2,99€ @ Glamour, December 2013
Purse RRP: 5,99€ (I bought it when it was on sales at 4,20€) @ Carrefour

You may have recognised that floral print from some pics... yes I have used it as a background for some posts! It's so gorgeous! It's not plastic but fabric and I really like it. I usually carry it around to write down some ideas, doodles or as a journal sometimes! Glamour España was selling different planners/notebooks and I got this as a notebook! 

The blue thing at the corner is my University Planner aka my University Diary. I got it at Carrefour and it's so simple I didn't even take a picture. It's nice though, I use it for university purposes and sometimes for gym purposes — I tend to write down my workouts there!

And my purse — check how cool it is! I was using a purse from Stradivarious that I love a lot but then I saw that one, so simple, so stylish, at Carrefour! Crazy! (If you don't know what Carrefour is, it's like Walmart I believe? They sell everything — from food to drugstore make up and also electronic devices!

RayBan Wayfarer Eyewear RRP: 130€ 

Yes, I'm one of those girls who wear Wayfarers as eyewear. To be honest, I don't remember how much they cost because I got them at the optician next to my house and since we're neighbours I always get discount but I know it was something around 100-110€ although the original price for the glasses is 130 and they get more expensive when they check your eyes and put the glass you need! I always carry them with me — I wear them, but I carry the case with me in case I wanna keep them or whatever, you never know!

Make up bag  RRP: 3,99€ @ H&M
Energy Colour eReader C4+ Touch Titanium Red RRP: 62,90€

I got that make up bag probably 2-3 years ago and it's lovely. The price was very very cheap and even now you can find similar bags at H&M! I won't get into what I have inside my make up bag because I want to write about my travel essentials soon! 

Also, I've written about this already but I carry my eBook everywhere since my friends gave it to me for my birthday. It's lovely! And if you like reading, it's definitely worth it to get an eBook. I used to be agains eBooks, I prefer books, but since my mum got one I wanted to get one myself and well, it was one of my birthday presents this year! Yay!

Oh, and yes, that's a random bobby pin I found in my bag.

I didn't include my phone / iTouch because I usually have them with me all the time, either in my pockets or in my hands... but yes I carry them everywhere, too!

What's in your bag? Do you carry more or less than I do?

I hope you're all having a nice Wednesday!
