What's in my bag?

I am incredibly fond of "what's in my bag" posts. I have to admit that I am a massive fan of looking at what other people have in their bags, so I finally decided that I had to make my own. My bag contents have changed greatly since my days at school so now instead of carrying around massive history or math books, I've replaced it with the essentials of my every day life. I do change bags a lot, so at the moment I am lugging around a burgundy Pieces bag that I received for my birthday. It is absolutely perfect for me because I always manage to lose things inside of my bag and this bag has so many pockets that my losing of things has decreased. I used to use tote bags and well to find anything in there was almost impossible. 

Bus card & Driving tickets: Since my move from the center of town, a bus card was definitely needed. Our bus cards have been named "Jojo" for a reason that I do not know. And since I'm in the process of getting my drivers license, I am taking lessons which require these little coupons to keep track of how many lessons I've been taking. 

Wallet: This lovely burgundy find was bought at a second hand store for 5 krs (which is under 1 dollar). Inside it says its a Puccini, and I've never heard of the brand before but it is certainly a nifty wallet. 

Mini clutch: This blue, beaten up looking little purse I got years ago from Accessorize and I've always stored my first aid stuff in there. Someone always needs a band aid or a pain killer and this little purse always comes to the rescue. 

Earphones & rings: I am a music fanatic, I can't walk 5 minutes alone without putting in my head phones and listening to music. One of my greatest fears is to one day forget them and be forced to take the bus in silence. As for my rings, I carry them everywhere and wear them most of the time. Just become a bit of a habit. One is a sort of voodoo man that I bought at a flee market in Rome and the other is just a simple circular ring that I bought at a festival in my town. 

Clutch: This clutch stores pretty much everything that is loose in my bag. I have to clean it out every so often because it can get pretty overloaded with receipts. 

Iphone: I won't lie and say I'm not attached to my iPhone because I really am but it is mostly for the music aspect of it. And it is perfect for quick photo taking and of course, pinterest. 

Keys: Well just one key, to my house. I used to have a massive key chain with keys from unknown sources so I thought it best to just have the one key I use. Along with a mint green loopy key chain and a mini flashlight for finding that key hole when the outside lights haven't been switched on. 

Good Read: 100 Mistakes That Changed History by Bill Fawcett. I love History and pretty much all eras and centuries and this book manages to highlight and touch upon almost each era. It is a simple read and incredibly interesting, also perfect for the bus ride home. 

Lip balm / Lipstick: Winter in Sweden can get freezing, it is already starting to happen and once it gets cold, the easier chapped lips appear. So I trust my carmex lip balm for healing (it is perfect!) and my cotton candy lip smacker which is pretty much only there because it smells so scrumptious. I also carry my favorite lipstick with me which is a Spanish brand Kiko

Nail file: My essie nail file that is there when out of the blue you break a nail. I really don't use it very often but it brings comfort to me that someday when I am in dire of it, it will be there. 

So there it is, the contents of my bag, hope you enjoyed!
