New Zara Handbag (& what's in my bag)


I've wanted a new bag for a little while now as I use my 'Focco' all the time and I thought the all black colour wasn't very spring-like. This beauty is from Zara, I ordered it after loving all the bloggers Zara bags that they've been buying recently and I wanted to get one for myself. The bag itself is leather so I'm hoping it's going to last me a long time- being a student I don't have a great deal of money to splash out on new bags so the ones I buy tend to be more classic in appearance and good quality. All the hardware on this bag is gold which I also like as I don't really wear a lot of silver jewellery so this should go with my outfits and be more useful. Overall I love this bag so much! It's not too big that you look like you're carrying around all your worldly processions but it's large enough to hold the essentials- purse, keys, umbrella, make up bag etc. I'm sure I'll feature this bag in lots of my outfit posts so look out for it :)

I feel this post wouldn't be complete without the classic 'what's in my bag?' segment. So here's a little glance of the things I'm most likely to be carrying in my bag; all the essentials of course ;)



Keys, iPhone, Tangle Teezer hairbrush, sunglasses (Marc by Marc Jacobs), perfume (MAC Creations MV1- exciting name I know!), Nivea Milk and Honey lip balm (my favourite!), 'Model Mirror' light up mirror, MAC lipstick, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, Blistex 'Relief Cream' lip balm and my revision flashcards-these are so handy for revising key terms on the go!
Other items I forgot to include were my purse, make up bag (although I don't always carry this!) and my earphones :)

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

  15. Oh wow! Can't believe this is from Zara. I love how Zara has the knack for making nice, cheap pieces look incredibly expensive. I wouldn't have batted an eyelid if you had said this from by Chloe or Celine or another equally beautiful/expensive brand!
