What’s in the bag

Recently I went on a hunt for a backpack I could use when baby T arrives. I fell in love with this beauty from Accessorize, everything about it I love, the colour, the material and the sections. I would buy it other colours, but I am pretty sure Mr N would not be pleased with more handbags!

Nora Backpack- Accessorize 

This, I have found a perfect opportunity to show off my new bag but to also post about what I couldn’t live without in my bag. Although I’m fully aware this will change soon with snotty tissues, wet wipes and kid friendly snacks.

Hand cream

I admit this changes depending on the season but I could not do without hand cream in my bag. This summer it is Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment. 

My Filofax

Okay, a little bit Del Boy but seriously I would be lost without this. You never know when you need to jot something down, check your diary for planning or remember it is that family members Birthday so you need that address. 


Who does not carry lip balm? A woman’s essential staple for the perfect pout. This is forever changing in my bag, probably because I have so many lip balms!


Followed of course by lipstick, I love red so I always carry one of my many reds with me. I love the moisturization of Kate Moss’ lipstick collection for Rimmel.

Hand Sanitizer

You may think this one is odd, but recently I caught E. coli it was horrid! I have always been one for clean mitts but now more so than ever. You can never be too sure. 

Chewing Gum or Mints

Anyone who knows me knows I always have chewing gum. Straight after food, I will chew as admittedly it would be weird to nip into the ladies to brush my teeth. My job used to be public facing I could not think of anything worse than lunchtime breath. 


I have so many pairs of sunnies, however, if I could the collection would grow further. I have been caught short so many times without them, so a pair is always in my bag. 

Obviously, my purse changes when the handbag changes. Wonder how long that will last in the future? I used to carry an extra purse for all my store cards but now I have a handy app for them. Check out my blog post on my favourite apps: https://ladymckew.blog/2017/06/08/favourite-phone-apps/
