Whats in my Handbag by Stephs World

What’s in my Handbag

If you’re anything like me, I love to have a good nosey into what people carry around in their handbags. So today, I have decided to do a What’s in my Handbag post; so you can see now have a nosey into what I carry around with me.

The bag I have been using recently is my Cath Kidston Leather Handbag (which I got on sale for £40). I think it’s a great size for a handbag and has a detachable strap so you can wear it as a cross-body handbag.


I love Radley purses and this is my second purse now. I find the Radley purses hold the right amount of cards (I have so many loyalty cards) and also they fit into most bags. I especially like the smaller sized purses like this one on the Radley London website. I think I got this purse over a year ago on sale (I love a good bargain).

Care Kit

I always carry around this little Soap & Glory cosmetics bag and include some important things which may come in handy. I always carry:

  • Paracetamol
  • 4Head
  • Sanitary Products
  • Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream
  • Strepsils
  • Hair Bobble & Pins
  • Lip Balm
  • Glass Nail File
  • Tissues
  • Antibacterial Hand Gel


I always carry my sunglasses around with me. I have 2 pairs of Ray Bans which are in rotation in my handbag, but these are my originals and my favourites for this time of the year. I instantly fell in love with the New Wayfarer style as they have a Matte Blue finish on the outside of the arms and the inside are Glossy Purple. I love them!

Front Pocket Essentials

Since I had my hair cut into a bob, if the wind comes along my hair will get into knots. I find a small comb at the front of my bag really comes in handy, and also I wouldn’t travel anywhere without my earphones. If I travel on the bus, train or walk anywhere, I have to have Spotify on and my earphones in.

These are the Sennheiser MM 30i earphones and are the best ones I have ever tried. They also have a control on the earphones to change track, adjust volume, has a microphone and you can play and pause with it. The earphones also block out all noise around you which is great.

As most people do, I always carry around my house key; but it is kitted out with my favourite keyrings. They are:

  • Harry Potter ‘You’re A Wizard Stephie’ Keyring from Etsy (which my Boyfriend got me for my Birthday last year).
  • London Heart Keyring chain from my first trip to London (when I was 16).
  • Eeyore Keyring from another keyring from when I was young.
  • S Keyring which used to have flowers on but they wore off (from my friend who lives in Berlin).

Foldable Bag

Since we now have to pay 5p in the UK, I have started to carry around foldable bags. This one lives in my handbag as it is tiny and folds away nicely into it’s own bag. This was a gift from my Parents.

What did you think?

Did you like having a look inside my handbag? What do you think? Do you think I carry around too much?

  • Sian…

    Yes to the organised handbag! Yours sounds exactly like mine and we have tonnes of the same essentials. I too have loads of loyalty cards and use about 3 of them frequently! Our care kit is pretty similar too! Greta post Steph 🙂

  • I carry around way too much! I love your Harry Potter keyring! I need to get one of those foldable bags as I am always forgetting to bring a bag with me. I like how you have put all your paracetamol and bits in a bag, I’m going to take this idea as I just sort of throw mine in and have to rummage around looking for them

    Firstly I love your handbag! I always carry hand maid with me too I love it. I really need to put my sunglasses back in my bag as I tend to just carry them around in summer but there’s been some really bright days recently where I could have done with them!

  • Your bag is adorable and like myself you also put items into other little bags just to keep things a bit more organized. I love your keychains for your keys as well! (:

    Thoroughly enjoyed this post. You’re a woman after my own heart with all of those loyalty & reward cards! Also I always tend to have a hand gel in my bag too!

    Was nice to see a what’s in my bag in the form of a blog post as opposed to a YouTube video (which seems to be the norm).

    Loved it hunni!

    I remember having a Radley purse myself! It was in hot pink and I got it as a birthday gift. I think we carry pretty much the same things in our handbags!

  • I carry around a lot more than you, so don’t worry! Haha. I have all that, purse/makeup bag/etc, and an organiser, a diary, highlighters, a manicure kit, a big tub of hand cream, and more. You do have a lot of loyalty cards! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    Love this, I carry a care kit too and always get laughed at…. until someone has a headache or doesn’t have a tampon then all of a sudden I am a Queen haha xxxxx


  • Your bag is so cute omg!!!! I also carry a care bag too, you never know when you are going to need it!! xox


    I love your bag so much but I’m not a bag-person. All I do is carry my wallet, phone and keys in my pocket. I always find myself to be a bit weird than other people.
