• Take a peek inside my handbag

    I was recently asked by Tasneem from City Girl Vibe (visit her blog here) to do a guest post on what I carry in my handbag and I realised that since my last post I have changed a lot of the products that I carried in the past (read it here).

    1. The Body Shop Mono Eyeshadow  I chose a dusty light pink because it doubles as a blush as well, which means I can carry one less thing with me.
    2. Physicians Formula Eye pencils in Purple and Brown. The main reason why I carry these are to change up the look of the eyeshadow.  I am able to create different looks without carrying extra eyeshadows.  These are really fantastic eye liners that go on quickly and smoothly.
    3. Clinique Power Lash Mascara  This is long lasting and the tube is also smaller than other mascaras which makes it ideal for a makeup bag.
    1. Black Opal blush that I got in a Rubybox a while ago.  I like having matte looking skin so this comes in handy when I get a bit of a shine.
    2. Elizabeth Arden Kabuki brush to apply the blush.  It's nice and compact and applies blush and bronzer so incredibly well.  It's easy to apply eyeshadow with your finger but applying blush evenly is not an easy task.
    3. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour cream Sun Defense for Face with SPF 50+  I am all about protecting my skin from premature ageing and the biggest cause of wrinkles is sun damage.  So I've stocked up on these little tubes especially for my handbag.
    1. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Tinted Lip Protectant in Blush.  I've mentioned many times on my blog how much I love Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour cream range.  The lip protectant stick is so good at moisturising my lips and the tint is beautiful.
    2. Kiehl's Lip Gloss  I won this in a competition and before this I never use to wear lip glosses.  In fact, I pretty much hated lip gloss.  But this is such a gem.  I love the beautiful berry colour and the non-sticky formula.
    1. Loccitane Shea Butter Hand Cream  This costs R100 for a little tube...yes that is quite expensive but this is a must for all women.
    1. Hairbands
    2. Hairpins
    3. Nail File
    Thanks again to Tasneem for inviting me to participate in her Bloggers and Bags series.  Go check it out here and see the cute header she designed for me! I think my indoctrination is starting to work.... (click to see what I mean!)

    I'd love to hear what your handbag must haves are.

    PS. I am quite ignorant around most unspoken rules doing guest posts on other blogs.  I never know if it's technically ok to feature my guest post on my own blog.  The reason why I am sharing this is not only to provide an update on the previous post I had done on this same topic, but I also wanted to introduce some of you to Tasneem's blog.  So my apologies do go out to those of you shaking your head in disapproval - but I hope you enjoy the post and please pop over to Tasneem's great blog - City Girl Vibe.
