Finally! A 'What's in my bag?' post!
 I love watching these on YouTube and lately I have gotten a request to do this post. 
Which honestly, I thought
"there's no way anyone would actually want to see what is in my handbag!" 

Anyway I thought why not I can share my go-to handbag; in the process,
what I carry in it, why, as well as tips to being organised.
Well minus the many many purchase receipts lol 
The accountant in me loves to keep them sigh...
Well this time around I didn't have as many,
usually I have a ton from Clicks, The Fix and Builders Warehouse 
I'm strange I love hardware stores!

If you know me you know my bag is always stocked with everything
I like medium sized to big bags - nothing over baring bcause I am short 
and I don't want to seem like I'm lugging around a carry-on when I'm out lol.

I hate not being prepared in case of an emergency
which is why I like to have a lot of stuff with me.

This is a beautiful handbag I purchased from Aldo in Saudi Arabia last year.
When I'm not carrying my tan sling bag I'm carry this guy!
I like switching up my bags depending on where I am going,
but I like sticking to the classic shades.




It's perfect for me;
Size,
Colour,
Space
and Gold Details
which made it the perfect black handbag.

Also this dua (prayer) book has a lot of important duas, honestly my carries it everywhere and now I do to. It's really good to have on hand in case of an emergency. Depending on your religion I always suggest carrying something that reminds you of your faith and will be on hand in times of need.

I usually keep all my coins in a coin purse (from China Town) I had searching for coins when I need to give a tip (sadaqah - charity) so this makes life easier. A pen always comes in handy as well as receipts so when you need to return something or calculate how much you spent at the end of the month it's all easily available.

MAKEUP - I usually do not carry so much makeup, this is what I had in my purse the last time I went out for a laser appointment so I didn't wear any makeup. 
Eyeliner, mascara and lipstick is usually a must for me to have on me so I never look like a zombie lol. I also carry gloss or lipbalm (or both) cause sometimes my lips are so dry and the feeling sucks. 
Lastly, I carry a mini beauty blender, if I wear makeup and it's hot it is easy to wet and dab all over my face so I do not melt. 

CREAM - Like I said since the last time I went out it was for laser and I didn't wear makeup I just took some sun-cream with me and it's in the small travel size. I also love carrying some The Body Shop hand cream, they're so small and smell so amazing!

PERFUME -  I love having perfume on me cause I won't living in a country that is SO DAMN HOT I need to feel refreshed. I love to carry small mini perfumes with me, recently I have been between Victoria Secret mini perfumes and this Itr (perfume oil) from Saudi...sorry I cannot remember the name.

CHEWING GUM - If you know me you know how I ALWAYS GET CAR SICK! I am so lame but even an hour drive makes me so ugh. So the only time I chew gum is in the car lol 

CONTACT LENSES CASE - These are everywhere nowadays and I LOVE IT! You can keep your case inside, it has a mirror as well a super mini solution bottle which is perfect. 

MIRROR - Well you can just use your cell phone to check your teeth after eating, putting lipstick on or to check your hijab/hair but I like to carry a mirror as well. 

SUNGLASSES - My big ass black shades lol these are very affordable ones from NEXT which I love because these are so me.

Okay some of you may find this a bit odd but this is a must to have on me!
Like I said I love to be prepared and this is my mini survival kit. 

SANITIZER & WIPES - I kid you know I am OCD when I am out of the house that I have to carry both. Comes in handy before I eat or when I just feel sticky. A deodorant tip when you're out and about is to dab some hand sanitizer on you, if you're sweating trust me it works. 

FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS (PADS) - Oh my word, imagine getting your period when you're out and about and not having a pad on you!!! That is why I always carry one in my handbag just in case. 

TOILET SEAT COVERS - As much as I'm a clean freak, I oddly won't shy away from a public bathroom. I think India and Hajj has long erased my mind from being fussy. However, I still carry seat covers whenever I do need to go. 

SURGICAL GLOVES - Now this is for whenever I see an animal on the road injured or killed and I am capable to carry it off the road. Also comes in handy to have in case there is an accident on the road and you need to help people out. 

EYE GEL & CONTACT CASE - I always carry an extra case as well as gel, my eyes get super dry and once upon a time I actually almost went blind in one eye after my operation so I always carry these with me. 

PLASTERS & PAIN KILLERS - Cuts and headaches when you're out and about running errands will make life hard. So I carry these with me for myself or in case someone may need it. 

MIRROR, PINS, CLIPS & HAIR TIE - I carry extra, sometimes I lose a scarf pin (disappears) or my hair becomes loose under my hijab I carry extra with me so I don't end up looking like a hot mess during my day.

Recently, after I had already taken the blog post pictures,
I purchased some new
 vanity bags. 
I have a slight obsession with vanity bags *ehm*.
I purchased a set of 3 from Clicks and switched my old emergency animal print bag
 to the smallest bag 
from the new set. 



I really hope you enjoyed this post,
if you would like to see more feel free to send me a message. 
I am sure this is a way to get to know who I am
and also learn some organisational tips lol 


So what do you have to carry with you???

  1. Great to know about the products inside your hand bag. I keep very few things in my bag and they're mostly for my son.

  2. Woot! I can never be this prepared really. I would switch handbags at most times and just drop the wallet, phone for basics --- unless I'm going to a much more planned event or activity.

    1. I try so hard to keep it light which surprisingly it is lol I light bags that are light before putting anything in as well. Good to test it first before you buy one.

  4. I love to be as preparer as I can as well. Now its even more cause I end up needing everything when i am outside such as glasses cleaning cloth, hand cream, eyeliner, the lipstick i am wearing, a water bottle and etc. But i try not to carry any dua book and etc cause at times I need to visit the public restroom and it scares me to take my bag in with me unless I am with someone and they can hold on to my bag. Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. I totally understand I hardly ever use the bathroom when I'm out I'm just weird like that and usually if I am there's someone I know with me so they hold the dua book for me. But if I know I'm going to be alone I leave it at home - don't want to risk it. lol a fellow preparer <3

  5. You're really prepared mashaAllah :) I think the vanity bags are so helpful to keep everything inside organised. I would never have thought of carrying a mini beauty blender - but it's a good idea for when it gets really hot.

    1. I like to pop a mini blender in my clutch for weddings or occasions because I get bad laugh lines and this just helps. Also it's good if its really hot and you can feel your face getting oily. INSTANTLY REFRESHING!

  8. I really liked the idea of carrying a dua book! I have that little pocket-sized book "Fortress of a Muslim" with a bunch of duas for like every occasion. I always leave it at home but I think I'll start carrying it around in my purse =)

    1. I'd love a small version because it's sometimes gets difficult to carry a big book with. But you should it's amazing alhamdulillah never know when you may need it.
