Update: Congratulations to Camille B, you’re the winner of my Quill London giveaway. Some lovely stationery goodies are on their way 🙂
Although recently it feels like my handbag has been stocked up with canelés from my trip to Bordeaux (where I’ve started shooting the photos for my new book) – usually I try and keep my handbag not too full (all the more room for treats!). Here’s a sneak peek into my (handbag) life:
1*– Can’t leave the house without a notebook. Love the notebook range from Quill London. I always have a nice notebook tucked into my handbag, especially handy for writing down random recipe ideas when they spring up unannounced!
2*– When I’m doing lots of washing up during recipe testing, my hands really suffer (I make it a rule to always wear washing up gloves to protect my hands). I throw a travel-sized hand cream (love anything by Herbacin) into my handbag to whip out during the day. I found this brand during my days of working on projects with VW in Germany.
4*– I love the compact size of the Bobby Brown Foundation Stick. It doubles up as a foundation and concealer, which is great for touching up during the day.
5*– I feel a bit naked when I don’t have my iPhone handy. Blessing and a curse. So fab to have my music, camera, calendar and apps all in one place – but still nice to switch it off one in a while to have a tech break.
6*– You’ll never find a handbag of mine without a lipstick in it. When I’m wearing my red lipstick, I need to remember my compact mirror (with hair brush). Good for fixing my lipstick and hair during the day. Or otherwise I need to resort to this.
7*–I have a pen fetish and will have at least three different type of pens in my bag at any given point.
GIVEAWAY: Did you catch my Q&A on Quill London a few weeks ago? I love the stationery on their site, practical with just the right amount of whimsy. Thanks to Quill, I have some lovely bits and bobs to giveaway.
For your chance to win, leave a comment on my blog (bonus points for mentioning this post on your own blog, twitter or facebook) and name your three must-have items in your handbag (or guys – in your pockets?).
I’ll be randomly drawing the winner on Wednesday April 10, so you have until Tuesday April 9 to enter this giveaway.
