Lil miss reminiscent: Lately I've been.....

Drinking copious amounts of herbal tea in my pretty new Cath Kidston style mug from Wilkinson's

Applying almond oil on my hands to prevent any dry skin

Exfoliating my body with the Sanctuary's Sea Salt scrub - this makes my skin feel baby soft.

Burning candles and wax tarts. My favourite Yankee Candle scents for Autumn are: Fireside treats, Merry Marshmallow, Vanilla Satin and Vanilla Sandalwood.

Watching the Mentalist on my new Samsung Galaxy note. I was always a fan of Apple products, but wanted to try something new hence I decided to buy a Samsung tablet. I am very impressed by it and it's also a whopping £200 cheaper than the iPad. I also love watching the Mentalist. Simon Baker is a great actor with a gorgeous smile, and he's also easy on the eye ;)

What have you been up to?

Lil Miss Organised: New handbags +

If I could get away with not carrying a handbag - I would. I don't like carrying things - I rather stuff things in my pockets. Unfortunately, that's not always possible. 

For work, I carry the essentials: Sat nav, work equipment, makeup bag, wallet, phone, keys and hand cream. As I carry so much, my bags get worn out quicker than normal, so my idea of the perfect bag is: good quality, durable, has different sections to organise my belongings and it also has to be profressional and 'sleek looking'.

I found the perfect bag in Next - and I absolutely love it! The detailing is beautiful, the material is of great quality and the straps are long enough to hang off my shoulder.  Unfortuanately I cannot find it on the Next website but I only purchased it a few weeks ago so it may be available instore. The bag cost me £25. 

 I was also looking for a smaller handbag for recreational purposes. I found this Mulberry lookalike from M&S for only £35. I love the long straps, the fact that it has a zip divider in the middle and the sturdy material.

Where do you buy your handbags from?
