Winter Handbag Essentials


Hello my lovelies!
Today I am sharing with you my Winter Handbag/Travel Essentials featuring all the bits and bobs I bring with me when travelling home. Obviously I will also bring spare clothes and any washing I can hope to get away with asking my mum to do it for me.. But this is a separate bag I bring along with me holding everything I will need for the journey, especially if it's by train.

Before catching the train, if I have ten minutes or so to wait, I will have a quick look at what magazines they have available and see if any of them take my fancy.
In the picture above I am featuring the Glamour Magazine with Tanya Burr on the front which came with a free Clinique lipstick in a gorgeous bright red shade! How convenient! This would obviously take any fan of YouTube's fancy especially if, like me, Tanya is one of your favourites! I recently bought this coffee cup from Costa and I think it will be so good for travelling as you can bring this, a magazine and just chill on the train perhaps whilst listening to music!

Beauty Essentials
My essential bag isn't complete without products for the journey! Here I have the:
Zoella 'Let's Spritz!' spray in case you need to top up!
Nivea Express Hydration Primer/Moisturiser - if you're not wearing any foundation and your skin is feeling dry!
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush 'Gorgeous Berries' - To keep them cheeks rosy!
The Body Shop 'Frosted Plum' Hand Cream - I always bring a hand cream with me as I prefer smooth rather than rough hands right?
Tanya Burr Lip Gloss 'Berry Picking'
Clinique 'Cherry Pop'. I like to bring two lip products normally just in case I change my mind and am feeling a different colour halfway through the day/journey! Is that weird? I hope not!

Coming up with Blog post ideas or going blog hunting and finding new ones to follow!
This is one of my favourite things to do when travelling. I whip my notebook out if an idea comes to me or I scroll through blogs on my phone and write down what I like/dislike about them. I have really enjoyed doing this recently as I come across new blogs aswell as learning new things!

Digging into a good book
I also bring a book along with me if I'm travelling alone. 'Girl Online on Tour' is Zoella's recent book release following 'Girl Online'. I am so excited to read it, I haven't gotten round to it yet as University is such a busy lifestyle!
A recent book favourite was the Girl On The Train, I might write a separate review on this as it was basically a mystery which had the most shocking ending, it kept me on edge the whole time I think I read it in about a week! I could not put it down!

I honestly cannot go anywhere without my tangle teezer. It leaves the hair feeling smooth, silky and doesn't lose a fight with any knots! Even with damp hair, it is so easy to brush any knots and that used to be hard with any other brush I used!

And that is the end of my Winter Handbag/Travelbag Essentials!
