What's in my Bag | Everyday Basics

Hello, you curious people! Who else loves 'what's in my bag' style posts!? I've done a few of these in the past but I thought it was about time I posted an update. I'm carrying a new bag c/o LYDC from the DSUK London range named the 'Giselle Cross Body Bag' in black and sand. It's one of those small-medium sized bags that surprisingly holds a lot of stuff. It's quite a slim design though, different to what I'm used to, so I can't carry bulky items like a dslr camera. I've had bags from LYDC before and I'm always impressed with the quality of the faux leather for the price. This Giselle bag is only £23.50.

On a everyday basis I'll be carrying just the basic items with me. My iPhone and iPad Mini for keeping up to date with Twitter and posting photos to Instagram as well as always having Game of Thrones to hand for a quick read on the train. My purse is from Osprey but via TKMaxx (always the best for a designer bargain) as is my 2014 diary. I've started relying on Google Calendar much more these days but it's always handy to have a paper diary/notebook on your person. Other items that fell out of my bag include my Ray Bans for unexpected sunny weather, a few items of makeup - nearly always lip products, a Chloe roller-ball perfume and a selection of midi rings. I swiftly removed the screwed up receipts and bits of fluff before taking these pictures.
