What's In My Handbag

I know a lot of people invest heavily in handbags - I'm not one of those people, I tend to change my bag a lot, and well I don't want to pay thousands of pounds for something I take to my day job where it may well get damaged.  But I do like to have nice bags!

I 've discussed in an earlier post what my style is so when it comes to bags it should be no surprise that my current bag is quite a classic shape.  Granted it has the pompom flash of fun but other wise it's a classic black tote.

So, what's actually hiding in there;

1. My purse

My current purse is from Fiorelli and is black and cream.  I like this one as it has a lot of spaces for my cards and a clear pocket where i keep a photo of my parents which I like to have with me all the time - since I lost my dad this is a precious keep sake.

2. My Phone

Like most people my phone is never far away from me.  I'm currently using an I Phone, which I love as it connects me to my network of laptop, PC and I pad.

As I use other MAC products I like the I phone as it's able to integrate with them all

I use a protective toughened glass cover to protect my screen and I vary the covers depending on my mood or what I'm doing that day.

3. My I Pad

Generally my I Pad is always with me.  I've had this one quite a while now but I love it still.  It's great to do general social media admin on and also as I move around a lot in my day job I can take my music, movies and TV with me for when I'm locked away in someone else office on my own.

4. My charging kit

I created a little kit to keep with me should any battery fail!  In here I have a battery charger for my phone (this one is a gift from clarions) it holds two full charges for my phone which comes in handy on those busy days, I also carry it's charging cable so I can top it up when I need to.  I carry a spare cable for my phone and for my I pad and a plug to get a mains charge if I can.

5. My Note Book and pen

I'm a writer - I always have a note book!  IN this I write anything and everything, from lists of things I need to do, to ideas for my next book, character names, conversations that may work in a story somewhere down the line.

6. My Paper Diary

I tend to keep a paper diary as a back up to my electronic one - generally because I keep everything in here and my day job due to the nature of the industry can change at short notice so just in case I carry this one to take notes and back up what I need to know

7. Mini Make-up bag

Having a quick go to collection of beauty items is essential for me.  I carry lip balm, Lipstick (Clarins), face powder (Givenchy), perfume (Currently Burbury black) I tend to keep sample perfumes for a quick fix as their size is ideal, hair brush or comb, tissues.

8. Keys

The keys to my life, my home, my car, you get the idea

9.  My current read

I take a book with me most places I go, you never know when you will have a spare five minutes to read.

10 Things I Love about "It's Okay to Not be Okay"

It's Okay to not be Okay, started this past weekend on Netflix and TVN, produced by Studio Dragon, Story TV and Goldmedalist, it is a Romantic Drama a a whimsical fairy tale twist, staring Kim Soo Hyun in his first TV drama since returning from military service and Seo Ye Ji of Lawless Lawyer.

This is a show I've been looking forward to since it was announced and I have to say the pre show hype did not disappoint.

So two episodes in, here are the ten things I love about this show so far;

1.  Burton esq Whimsey

The show begins with a Tim Burton esq animation, reminiscent of the Corpse Bride and Nightmare before Christmas, with a twisted tale to match.  The dark fairy tale and graphic characters of the animation are carried through in to the illustrations of Ko Moon-young's (Seo Ye Ji) children's books

I love how the animation isn't dark which makes some of its darker themes all the more impactful.
It also sets up Ko Moon-young as a character beautifully, mixing he…

My Make Up Bag - Currently Trying - Clarins

Now, I’ve told you about my makeup journey, I used to use make up as a mask now I tend to use it to enhance my features.I’m no longer afraid of being seen without make up, but I do prefer to have a paired down routine rather than no makeup at all when I’m nipping out somewhere.
Currently I’m overhauling my makeup bag, chiefly because of my sensitivity I need to know what’s out there that works for me. Over the last two years or so I’ve altered my diet – I still eat too many cakes and biscuits but I tend to eat a lot more veg, and even grow it myself.I also try to eat more Organic food products as I find them more palatable and I find I feel better eating more cleanly.Mind you I still indulge so I’m not a complete saint but I try to find a balance between the two! Anyway, looking at my organic eating I decided I’d try and find something more Organic for my skin.So I started with Clarins skin care and I’m glad to report I’ve had no reactions to their skin care.I currently love;

Top 5 Romantic Comedy Korean Dramas

When you've binged watched on a little too much thriller and you're watching over your shoulder every time the door creaks its definitely  time to lighten the mood.  Romantic comedies are a light way to warm the heart with stories focusing on true love overcoming obstacles, with a chuckle or two along the way.  Who doesn't like falling in love, and romantic comedies give us that feeling, be it the levels of oxytocin rising as we connect on a deeper levelwith the characters or whether we're looking for that connection ourselves or maybe we just thrive on the feel good factor.
