O M to the absolute G – I finally have it, dear readers. The Dream Bag. For Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive (*cough* because I asked for it *cough* and sent my sister the link when it was in the Black Friday sale *cough*) this absolute beauty from my family. It’s the Kurt Geiger London Saffiano Tote in beige, and it’s basically all of my bag-related dreams come true.
As soon as I opened it, I made a solemn vow that this bag won’t become like my other handbags usually do – i.e. a bag-cum-bin vessel of absolute crap. I will keep this bag tidy, and it will carry only my most prized possessions – NOT four-month-old receipts, mouldy bananas and lone inexplicable socks. So, what are the prized possessions that have made the KG cut? Let’s take a closer look…
First of all, my bag might not have been a surprise, but one thing I wasn’t expecting to open Christmas morning was this gorgeous Kurt Geiger purse. It turns out that my boyfriend actually listened to me (a Christmas miracle in itself…) when I mentioned I was getting the bag, and so he bought me a new purse to go with it. I managed to resist the urge to Instagram it with the hashtag #boydidgood but… he actually did, didn’t he?!
Next up, no bag of mine would be complete without a nude lip product or two floating around inside. I’m impressed that it’s been over two weeks and I’ve still only got two in there, actually. My nudes of choice at the moment are one of the NYX Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks and MAC’s Creme D’Nude, which was another Christmas gift. I actually don’t top my makeup up at all during the average day (shout out to Seventeen’s Stay Time primer, which sticks my foundation like glue), but I will reach for one of these a couple of times for a little freshen up.
Next, a mane like mine needs regular brushing or else I start to resemble a grey Hagrid. I always have a Tangle Teezer on me, and at the moment it’s the new Ultimate Finishing Hairbrush* from the brand. It’s an absolute must-have for detangling and smoothing dry hair, and it’s been especially designed to take care of hair extensions. This makes it absolutely perfect for my weave, and I’m so impressed by how it gets through my hair without tugging at the extensions.
Finally we have my car keys (I drive a Fiat 500 for anyone doubting my full membership to the Basic Bitch Club), and my 2017 diary, which I managed to pick this up for a mere pound from a cheap card shop. I know, mixing high end with cheap card shops – what am I like, eh?
One of the great things about this bag is that while it’s got plenty of compartments, they’re all quite slim. I’m hoping this means there’s not actually room for me to create too much chaos inside, and mouldy bananas should stay firmly out of the situation. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me, please.
What do all think of what’s inside my bag? Let me know in the comments!
