What's in my bag?

I absolutely love watching "what's in my bag" videos on youtube so I thought I would do a post on it :)

I bought a black Longchamp large tote back in February/March 2011 and I've used it every day since. The corners have been worn down but the bag is still sturdy and I won't be replacing it until it truly falls apart. It's been an amazing investment.

My bag, for some reason, is normally filled up with receipts, plastic bags and rubbish. I cleaned it out and took a photo for you.

Here's what's in my bag:

Contents of my bag

1. Oroton Wallet: I've had this for about 4 years now. It's still going strong! It holds the cards that I don't use frequently and coins.

2. House keys: The tweety keychain is from Movieworld.

3. Chanel card holder: I bought this around August/September as a treat.

4. Mimco purse: This holds the cards that I use most frequently. It's small enough to take to work and use on my lunch breaks. We have to leave our bags in our lockers (in another part of the shopping centre) so I don't have easy access to my Oroton wallet.

5. Make Up For Ever concealer: I did a review here: http://shoppingqueenjen.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/concealer-rave.html

6. Jack Black lip balm: I love this stuff! So soothing and moisturising.

7. Pure Fiji body lotion: You never know when you need moisturiser!

8. Bobbi Brown pressed powder: I don't use the pressed powder anymore but I use the mirror in it.

9. Maybelline eyeliner: For touch ups on the go.

10. Mimco hair clip: For hot days. My hair is past waist length and needs to be tied up in summer.

11. Bioderma sample: You never know when you need makeup remover!

12. Mophie charger: My iPhone sometimes runs out of battery too early in the day so I use this to give it a boost.

13. Estee Lauder daywear sample: I refill this little pot from my main jar whenever it gets empty. It lets me carry around my facial moisturiser easily.

14. Bottle of water: I always have a bottle of water in my bag.

15. Not pictured: my iPhone (I used it to take this photo).

Occasionally, I also carry around facial wipes, tissues, food and other drinks. I weighed my bag once and it was 2-3kg!


  1. Loved this post! My bag is also always full of receipts and probably weighs between 3-5kg... so bad for posture!

    Just out of curiosity... that Jack Black lip balm is not by... the Tenacious D Jack Black is it? O.o

    1. I don't believe so... Jack Black is a men's skincare brand but the lip balm is raved about! It's so thick and moisturising. I love it!

  2. I need to get my hands on some Jack Black lip balm, I have heard so many raves about it! If I did "what's in my bag" I would have to include the confetti mountain of paper and foil peely snakes that result from plowing my way through a packet of fruit tingles or life savers on the train!

    1. Strawberrynet sometimes stocks it. Otherwise, I've used parcel forwarders to get my Jack Black fix :)

      I actually threw out about 2 months worth of receipts! My bag was completely filled with them!

  3. Here i was wanting to down size my mimco cocoon bag but now you're making me think about upsizing to a Longchamp. Esp given how long you've had it, longevity is great!

    1. I don't know how you manage to fit everything into a mimco cocoon bag! Longchamp also do small and medium sized bags so you don't have to get a big one.

  4. where can i buy that jack black lip balm??since i'm sort of a lip balm collector.nice post!

    new here to your blog,would you mind following back?tnx.

    just me,


    1. It depends on where you are. We can't get them here in Australia so I've ordered from strawberrynet before and also from the US.

  5. I super agree on the makeup remover, I usually throw some samples on my bag just incase ^_~

    1. You never know when it might come in handy :)

    1. I know right?! I have too many store and loyalty cards!

  7. I love your bag! I love your card holder too <3

  8. I've had my longchamp since 2009 and i still use it as a work bag :) although it's quite battered and the zip is broken :( really need to get a new one :p X

  9. you can never go wrong with a longchamp bag :)

  10. I really want to get a navy Longchamp - I love how practical and lightweight they are. I carry a lot in my bag as well. Love the tiny Bioderma :)
