My Bag Secrets! Shhhh!!

chanel boy bag

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

I have decided to do posts every Monday and Thursday on Faux Pas. But since I took this decision last night only, I couldn’t wait till Thursday. πŸ˜›

I have done this tag ages back but since my bag contents change almost everyday, I thought I’d do this post again. I was carrying this bag yesterday. It’s my very adorable Chanel Boy Bag (very difficult to click photos of :P). Β It looks small but holds all the important stuff. I am sort of shifting more towards smaller bags now because I feel they keep me Β organized. The bigger a bag I carry, the more things I tend to carry with me. 😐 Does this happen with you as well?

Anyway, have a great week ahead everyone. :))

zariin earrings
These are a recent purchase from Zariin. But these would be my go to earrings for a lot of occasions. I wore them yesterday
Inside my bag. Looks small but holds a lot of stuff!

rati bagAnd that’s what’s inside my bag. πŸ™‚

Crabtree and Evelyn Handcream, Inglot Palette, a neon card + cash holder, mints, Chanel Chance sample bottle, Geurlain kiss kiss gloss (obsessed with glosses these days πŸ˜€ ) , some document, pink pen :P, a little handmade paper diary, business cards ( don’t carry them with me mostly. I don’t like giving out my business cards. Very weird I know. :P), safetyΒ pins, Alenlibe, camera, NYX lip balmΒ in Grazie, TBS Kabuki brush, comb ( I need a prettier one), and also a lip brush (not in the pic).

Forgot to click the phone. My most important thing.. but that should be a part of ‘what’s in my hand’. πŸ˜›

I’d love to see what’s in your bag. So please do post your ‘what’s in my bag’ pictures on my Facebook page.Β :)) It’s be funnn!! πŸ˜€

What all do you carry in your bag? πŸ™‚

    such a cute post! and yippy for monday and thurday!

  2. neha says:

    those imbb cardsssss waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • Rati says:

      yeah i love crabtree hand creams and yesh those safety pins have been real saviours. πŸ˜€ I know.. I needed some kind of routine or else faux pas always takes a back seat.

      hihihih πŸ˜›

  3. Wafa Khan says:

    I completely agree how proportionate my bag contents are with my bag size. I carry huge bag that consists face wash (face wipes do not suit me), sunscreen, hand cream or tiny bottle of lotion, lip balm, lipstick, compact, wallet, card holder, mobile charger ( always forget to charge my cell phone), safety pins, tempoons, comb, hair rubber and emergency pain of earrings. Lots of pen and a diary.

    • Rati says:

      oh yeah i had charger as well in this. πŸ˜› same . Always forget to charge my phone and then end up taking seats near the charging points at the restaurants. 😐

  4. Surabhi says:

    You are sooo right about the bag size and the organizing ability. I was always a small bag person but now it seems that any bag is small for me. I have to carry a small water bottle, extra pants, biscuits, a small toy maybe.. and what not πŸ™ πŸ™ all for Pahal..!!! And still when I reach the place I always feel I forgot something πŸ˜› It is a crazy/mad thing when kids are at this age. But I never miss Sunscreen now. Have become a regular with it and it is really helping me.

    Loved your bag, your mum’s day post and your last OOTD. But why just two days? You should write here more often.. I love reading FP πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      yeah my friend has two kids and when she buys a bag, her thought process is completely different from mine. πŸ˜›

      thanks. πŸ™‚ because imbb is my priority not faux pas. πŸ™‚

  5. calicoaster says:

    Interesting stuffs in your bag.. πŸ˜€ :D…I haven’t carried my handbag since ages..just a small clutch with my makeup stuffs and money carried in my baby’s bag.. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    Me loved your earrings the most..what camera model is that Rati? I am planning to buy a new camera, just coz my little one keeps moving so much.and I want to capture him and his videos on high quality now…my current camera isn’t apt for that….would love to get some suggestions from you. I don’t want to go for SLRs coz I find them too bulky and with my son, I don’t think it’d go too well..but I want some handy camera that can capture high quality pics and videos…… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      Cali this is IXUS 500 HS. In true honestly, I dont enjoy using it because when I see my DSLR pics and when i see pics taken by this one, I just want to roll my eyes. πŸ˜› But it is not a bad one to carry around and is pretty decent for the purpose you are looking for. :))

  6. pia says:

    so agree.. even i hv recently shifted everything to my hidesign hangbag in logo.. its so small as compared to my other big bags… so i ought to be more organised.,. i have my wallet, loccitane handcream, mac kajal, mac midimauve lippie, safety pins, few pens, visting card holder, sunnies, my hair brush, keys, orbit cheqing gum tablets, my cheque book. office id card, n a packet of biscuits πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  7. pia says:

    forgot to add, maybelline baby lips and an estee lauder perume miniature,… hehe

    • Rati says:

      I mostly keep a slab of dark choc with me. I get so hungry so often it’s not even funny. :(( Havnet checked EL perfumes in a while. Totally want to now that you have mentioned. πŸ˜€

      I checked hidesign logo. It’s a classic. πŸ˜€

  8. Devie says:

    You fit ALL that into the bag? : P If that gorgeousness (i.e. the bag) was mine, I wouldn’t put more than mints and lipstick in it. You know, to preserve it : P : P
    I miss writing/participating on IMBB; hopefully will be able to sneak a few minutes to take pictures of my bag and post them on your FB page : P
    Looking forward to you Monday-Thursday posts : D

    • Devie says:

      Are the orange cards with the grey cartoon and IMBB your business cards? How cool! πŸ˜€ I’d be handing those out to anyone and everyone πŸ˜› really cool…

      • Rati says:

        This is for the first time I have got business cards made and I find it weird to give them out to people… I dont know but that’s just me. πŸ˜› But I agree they are too cute to be handed out. πŸ˜€

        Cant wait to read your posts. and yes please do share a piccy. Would love to sneak inside your bag. πŸ˜›

  10. Radhika Gupta says:

    Totally awesome Rati…. I love these “whats in your bag” kinda posts…..eagerly waiting for your bi-weekly posts..:) πŸ™‚

  11. Aru says:

    Love the bag. Really stylish. Love whats in your bag too. πŸ™‚ the palette is soooo pretty n super useful. I have to carry 2 extra pair of earrings always, one studs type n one dangling types πŸ™‚ somehow i dont want to risk not having a pair when i need it. I bought this pouch type thing which contains my stuff which can be transferred from one bag to the other without having to worry whether i have taken everything. It dosent look great but serves the purpose. I love big bags too!!

    I am backkkkkkk. Had the best time ever :)) will send a few articles maybe in the next few weeks. One article just for the shopping. πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      OMGGGG !! Please send pictures and posts soon soon. I cant wait to read your experiences and stare at your pics. Want to build my dreams on them. πŸ˜› I want my *happydance* smiley. hihih

      Oh yeah I have tried that pouch thing before. Dint work for me. but i agree it was convenient. :))

      Thank you πŸ™‚

      • aru says:

        sure thing. when I am back at work next week I am sure I can take the time out.:) .I am actually in Bombay now. πŸ™‚ visiting my folks. so you travelling again? cant wait to see the pics from those..

  12. sandhya says:

Seems to serve the purpose at the best affordable rate! travelling to mom’s place tomorrow and a much needed advice you have given as to what to carry in my bag! thanks rati di!

    • Rati says:

      thanks sandhya. yeah inglot palette is a must have. Keeps things a lot sorted! :)) enjoy your trip! πŸ™‚

  13. Abinaya says:

    I have himalaya baby wipes, revlon lip butter, inglot lip crayon, MAC See Sheer lipstick, kajal, mints, ray bans, purse, a book to read while travelling, a couple of bookmarks, some college textbook, some sheets of paper and a box of nuts in my bag right now! Thanks for making me clean my bag btw πŸ˜€


    • Rati says:

      I always carry my wet wipes with me but less space, less products. loll!! I need to repurchase my see sheer . Finished it up till the end. πŸ˜€ Good luck with your bag. πŸ˜€ *BIGG HUGG* πŸ™‚

  14. Tara says:

    I recently got to know that a wooden comb does wonders to hair so I’m planning to get that on my next purchase πŸ™‚ You may like to try too! Loved the bag and neon wallet + TBS kabuki brush! I have so much stuff in my bag I carry to work including an yellow umbrella, my new iphone 5 in floral cover, eye lash curler πŸ˜‰ mascara, lakme shadow duo, BB cream, Elf rose blush, blush brush (OMG list looks endless…shud stop here lol) and couple of lippies…..Its time for change my bag now πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      I tried tara and I lost it. TBS has a good one. Thanks for reminding. I’d pick it up. It’s awesome. :)) Hihihih i want to see your iphone cover. πŸ˜€ I think you should pick up one inglot palette. A lot of things would be sorted. πŸ˜› Good luck with your bag change. πŸ˜€

  15. Ramya says:

    Rati, loooveee the idea of the monday and thursday posts!! πŸ™‚ And ur bag contents are sooo perfect. I agree that a small bag makes u more organised. Are those IMBB business cards?? They r cuuuteee!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    I swtched to a smaller Baggit bag recently… I carry sunglasses, my earrings pouch (I carry it wherever I go πŸ˜› ), TBS hemp lip balm, whatever lipstick am wearing that day, MAC technokohl, sanitiser (found this really cute tiny one with spray at Health n Glow!), a comb, compact n my wallet. I need to get those perfume samples too!! πŸ™‚ I carry TBS JCB perfume as its tiny πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      Yeah ramya – monday thursday would keep me a bit organized no. Or else I get busy with ton of things and faux pas takes a back seat. :(( Oh wow! spray sanitizer. I’d look for it. We dont have health and glow here. :(( I am toh constantly looking for tiny perfume bottles. they are such saviours. and in delhi’s hot hot heat you cannot travel without them.

      Hope you are doing well. :-*

  16. rashmi says:

    thanks for the post,Rati I carry lotus safe sun sunblock,loreal color riche lip color,hand sanitizer,maybelline clear glow compact,wet wipes,sunglasses,kohl,hair brush and cell phone

  17. Janhavi says:

    Just a question … how come there is no wallet in your bag ? πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
    heee heee heee
    I generally am a big bag carrier and I often have a lot of useless crap in my bag, and since I hate littering, you will often find alot of discarded wrappers in my bag :S Must change ! πŸ˜›

    Love that chanel baby !!!

    • Rati says:

      j doo coz this would never fit my wallet. πŸ˜› so cash and cards are in card holder. *hunterwali* πŸ˜›

      oh yeah same… i end up putting all kachra in my biggy bags and forget to empty them later on. *headddbangg**

      thankoo :-*

  18. rashmi says:
