Romantic autumn handbag essentials

Ahhh the weather is gradually getting chillier and the evenings are feeling cosier. I had a really snuggly Sunday morning taking my photos, then Oscar awoke from his nap and couldn't get enough of the fairy
lights... cue an awkward little photoshoot with small hands grabbing at everything! That little boy update is on its way. In the meantime, here are some pretty things I've been adding to my bag this autumn.
What's in my bag autumn edition: romantic handbag essentials
Hello bow bag! You might have seen this beauty from Accessorize before; I gain all kinds of crazy love for it in the colder months and it goes perfectly with all the snuggly outfits that ensue. I have had this baby for a while, ever since Christmas 2013 I think. Before that, it had been on my wishlist for sooo long!
My rose gold iphone SE is one of my essentials, along with my diary here for noting down blog ideas! It's my first smartphone and I still can't get my head around how amazing it is, I never want the novelty to wear off. I use my phone mainly to listen to music and I love listening to Vanessa Carlton... ahhh beautiful instrumental loveliness. My grandparents complain that there is no modern music out there worth listening too - do yours say this too? - but I think they are missing out dearly haha!
I can't get over this Too Faced blush. I've had it for a while and it's been practically unused up til now! It's perfect for delivering a fresh, natural glow to the cheeks and helps me to look more awake. The three shades combined together are so pretty and have a shimmery finish to highlight the cheekbones.

The packaging is ultra adorable too and it's such a pretty keepsake in my bag. It's a pleasure to whip it out on the train or bus stop! I believe it's called the Sweethearts blush and you can find it here.
What's in my bag autumn edition: romantic handbag essentials
I have a new book from the library! I love Jane Austen's works so can't wait to give it a read and will let you know how I get on. I always like to take a book with me to read for when I stay over with mine or Mitch's family. How pretty is the cover? Didn't check it out just to use in photo arrangements.
I've started to notice my hands getting more and more chapped - also due to eczema - and have just rediscovered this rose scented hand cream! L'occitane products have such gorgeous, true to life scents and this smells divine. For me, roses are a scent that I can love all year round and the smell of this takes me back to the Queen Mary's rose gardens in Regents park at the height of summer.
This cat purse brings out the five year old in me haha! It's so cute and reminds me of Oscar's face when he was a baby, with his tongue lolling out. I bought it on a market stall back in France but have only just got round to using it. I love how it's really lightweight and easy to fit in my bag.
Eeep the Babylips holiday editions are in Superdrug! I was torn between Chai Tea Latte and Vanilla Cupcake but went for the former as the deep burgundy hue is such a perfect winter shade. The scent is so dreamy *drools* and smells like gingerbread and winter spices! I think it's my favourite so far.
I hope you enjoyed this nosy in to my bag - wishing you a lovely, cosy Monday morning!
