Clutch Bag Essentials

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that today’s post is the first all week. Whoops. I’ve had a few days of sorting out, I cleared out my bedroom back home, cleaned out my car, and had a bit of a rethink vis-a-vis blog posts. I think I was stuck in a bit of a rut, so it felt good to just stop, clear everything out, and start again! 
You eagle eyed lot will also note that despite having a big home sort out, I still haven’t ironed my bedsheets. I’ll get to it, I promise.
Now! That beautiful Whistles clutch I picked up in the sale needed an a proper christening, so when it accompanied me out on Tuesday evening, I snapped a few pictures of it’s contents, mostly so I could mention in a post how much I love this clutch. It’s just dreamy. I have a couple of these Whistles small leather pouches now and they come in so handy, but I couldn’t resist this one, this powder blue shade is my favourite! 
Clutch bag musings aside, here’s a rundown of what made the cut! This bag is surprisingly roomy, you can fit a lot in it!

iPhone: Pretty self explanatory. I’d love to be one of these people that leaves the house without a phone, but I know that with my luck, that’d be the day I get a flat tyre, and have to call my Dad/AA to come help me! 
Chanel Les Beiges Powder: Because when I don’t take a powder, I get shiny. This is my favourite for on the go since it never looks cakey, and it comes with a little powder brush that isn’t totally shitty. Also, it looks damn good, doesn’t it? 
Perfume Rollerball: Because you never know when you’re going to get a little sweaty. This one is the Tease Noir scent from Victoria’s Secret, I don’t normally go for their fragrance, but this is a good’un.
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector: I don’t love these as much as everyone else, but it’s what I went for this week. I like that it’s dinky, so it doesn’t take up much room in the handbag, and you can apply it without a mirror if need be. Whenever I go anywhere involving food, I go for a light coloured lipgloss or a tinted lip balm, cause ain’t nobody got time to touch up a red lip post burger.
Makeup Forever Aqua Liner: Because eyeliner on the waterline is always the first thing to go, and sometimes I want to look dark and mysterious. The eyeliner doesn’t really help with that, but I can pretend. 
Rescue Remedy Pastilles: Just in case I start to get anxious. Better to have them and not need them, than need them and not have them.
Hair ties & pins: With this sticky humid weather I’ve been wearing my hair up a lot (I basically live in a perpetual state of milkmaid braids), and I always seem to unravel halfway through the night. Extra pins are a must, and extra bands just in case. 
Naked Bar: Just in case dinner takes too long.
Spare camera battery & memory card: The amount of times my camera battery dies or my memory card claims to be full five minutes after I get somewhere, these are total necessities!
