What’s in my bag today


This is my beloved Patricia Nash bag (which I have been using every day since I received it as a gift) and it holds

  • Tumi makeup bag which I received as an airline freebie. It holds basic makeup, wetwipes, aspirin, cotton buds, lip salve, glasses cleaners and plasters
  • Red mini Fulton umbrella. I always carry an umbrella with me so they need to be small and light. These ones are.
  • Small Tupperware container with dried mango
  • Glasses
  • Gum
  • Van Der Spek Janet Leather pen holder (now 2 years old)
  • Tissue holder
  • Parliament ID card
  • tangled earphones
  • Sunglasses
  • Van Der Spek Junior Sized Touch Me binder

  1. I love “what’s in my bag” posts as much as “what’s in my planner” reviews. Yes I think you should post more on these subjects, Janet. Your opinions and photos are always very inspiring and may I also say they have more than once influenced my choices. Thank you!

  2. Hi Janet – where did you buy the umbrella? I’m moving back to the UK in Sept, so need to find a light and sturdy (yes, there are unicorns in the umbrella world as well as the Filofax world…) umbrella to help me through an Oxford winter….

    1. I got it at a shop in Liljeholmsgallerian but you can buy them most places. It’s a Fulton mini, and Totes also do one. They are really small and light and last for ages.

  3. The Patricia Nash bag looks very light to carry! Must be a huge difference in weight especially with your VDS Junior TM!

    1. It is so nice now having a smaller binder – I don’t need to specifically choose huge bags to hold it! This bag is amazing – large enough to carry everything I need but, as you say, light. It also has a top zip and two handles so very versatile. DannyL is really my fairy godmother!

  4. I haven’t seen any What’s in My Bag lists for ages so it made my morning being nosey and seeing what is in your beautiful bag. Thank you 😍

    1. I love doing them, but what I carry in my bag varies very little so I fear regular posts would be boring. But maybe I should try doing one a week, on the same day?
