What's in my bag | Autumn/winter edition

Well hello to you my reader chums! With longer nights and even colder weather, autumn is slowly on its way out with the excitement of winter not too far ahead. In the cooler months, I find you need a few more self-care products on hand and always fill up my bag with the essentials. 

Autumn inspired whats in my bag

The satchel bag

When I was in Venice, I got the most gorgeous satchel bag. I've always had a thing for satchels, they can smarten up any look and are ever such a classic piece. This one in particular I fell in love with because of all the colours; there's a blend of light to dark brown, black, burgundy and a warm mustard colour under each pocket, which stood out amongst the rest of bags on sale.

What's in my bag for autumn and winter

Here's what's in my bag for autumn and wintertime.

Soap and Glory Hand Food hand cream

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned in previous posts, how when the cooler weather hits, my hands suffer with dryness. In autumn time, I like to carry around a hand cream so if they feel really dry or as if the dryness will come, I'll apply a bit and fix the problem. The product I love to use at the minute is Soap and Glory's 'Hand Food' because it has the most delicious scent and a thick consistency, aiding extra dry hands.


Winter may bring the Christmas excitement and endless cosy nights, however it's also cold season, so I like to carry a pack of tissues, whether its for me or a friend. If you head to your local supermarket you can by a massive pack of travel-size tissues for cheap to carry on the go and help conquer all those winter colds.

Classic chapstick lip balm

Similar to my hands, my lips get insanely dry when the cooler weather hits. I like to try various of lip balms out in this season to see which works best. The one I'm using at the minute is a classic chapstick balm and love how soothing it is. If you have any recommendations, please leave them below in the comment section.

Berry lipsticks

One thing I love about autumn/winter is the makeup looks. A coppery eye and darker lip is my staple makeup to rock when the weather is colder. You never know what sort of occasion a day can bring and I always make sure to have a lipstick with me no matter what. In these months, berry lipsticks tend to feature in my handbag. I like to carry around a subtle option like Nyx's liquid lipstick in 'Rome' and a vampier option, Charlotte Tilbury's 'Glastonberry' if I wanted to rock the darker look.

Hand gel

I am a bit of a clean freak and love to carry round sanitizer to give my hands a good wash before eating when on the go. With flu's and colds everywhere in winter, I find it's the best time to have a bottle on hand.

Chewing gum

Mints and gums are an everyday handbag essential. You never know when you're going to want to freshen your breath or a friend may ask for a piece or gum, so it's always best to be prepared. 

Spiral hair ties

Spiral hair ties are one of the most useful things I've invested in. They make tying up hair, a quick and easy task without the stress of messing up your hair when you take out the hair tie. In winter, they're one of those convenient items every girl needs; if the wind is going crazy, you can just put your hair up in a bun with no hassle. 


An essential for everyday is my little purse. What I love most is its size; the purse is big enough to fit all my money essentials but not too large that it can't fit in this satchel.

I hope you enjoyed this what's in my bag style post. What are your autumn/winter essentials?

  8. Loving all the winter essentials, I saw myself nodding along to each point, especially the hand sanetiser, I'm the same I need it on hand during commutes, daily travels and the colder season in general. Also lip balm is a must as are berry lip shades, it's the ideal time for such rich colours! Great post dear.

  9. The essential quintessence of an outer casing bag is that is has an outside aluminum outline which bolsters the whole pack. The casing appropriates the heaviness of the pack to the individual's hips. Visit this webpage
