What is in my handbag - Anna Nuttall

This was originally posted on my other site, but as it hasn’t changed much since I wrote it. I thought I would repost it on here. What is in my handbag – Anna Nuttall.

After all, we like to be a little bit nosy right? For me, I actually enjoy reading this kind of post as it another angle of getting to know the person behind the blog. My mum always used to tell me that you really know what kind of person they are just by looking at their handbag. I don’t know if there is any truth to that. Personally, I don’t think there is, as you really can’t define a person just looking at their handbag. If someone has a designer handbag, does that really define you as a person? I mean ok so this person got a designer handbag, does it mean she’s rich and can afford to splash out? For all, we know that designer handbag could be a present. Don’t judge a book by it cover ring the real truth here.

Anyway, I’m just rambling, I don’t have a designer handbag. It from H&M. I like this bag as it got a shoulder strap so I can wear it over my shoulder and keep my hand free. And it big enough to keep all my crap in. Let take a look at what I keep in my handbag.

Vapa Drops:

Since Spring has popped its head around, I’ve been unable to breathe properly. I get this every year, I have SAD – Seasonal Affect Disorder. So I take these drops when I’m out to help me breathe a little better.  They taste absolutely disgusting. I hate taking these as it tastes like glue but it does the job.

Waitrose Receipts:

A little boring really, I tend to have quite a collection of receipts. I wish more shops does digital receipts, so then it can stop filling up my bag.


Bog standard really. I’m that girl who can be out and it will suddenly start pouring down with rain and I won’t have my umbrella on me. So I try to keep this on me.

1 gloves:

I lost the other gloves so I now just keep one. It kind of a Michael Jackson tribute having 1 gloves. I alternate between hands when I’m out.


God bloody hell, I need my phone when I’m out. So yes this just stay in my handbag. It a Samsung Galaxy s7.

Spare hairband:

Just in case your hair band break for whatever reason.

I would be completely stuck if I went out without my purse. I will one day get a Ted Baker purse but for now, this one does the trick. It from Accessorize and I also use it to keep my business cards in.


So I can listen to music when I’m out. Any journey would be so dull if I can’t listen to any music.


I think the older I get, the more light sensitive I become. I’m blind as a bat without these. These are the same sunglasses I reviewed last year. So far I haven’t lost them.


As you never know when you get a headache. I keep these in my bag so I know where to look for some.

That it.

Now Over To You:

I don’t want you to just idly sit back and not be involved on here, so what I want you to do is to show us what is in your handbag.
