What's In My Bag? Radley Grosvenor in Purple

Last year, I made my first big (for me) handbag purchase. I bought the Radley Grosvenor Medium Satchel bag in purple. It was love at first site. I've LOVED it and I've been so happy that I got it! It's a beautiful purple (which is my favorite color) and everyone has said it's a very ME color bag! Here's a picture of the bag when I got it last year:

Awwww, look at the puppies! I had to take the puppies off the bag because they kept falling off the leather straps and I didn't want to lose them. The bag has very little sign of wear in the year that I've had it. The stitching has come a little undone on the handle but nothing that would mean it'd come apart or anything like that. The picture above is probably more color accurate than the pictures I took today.


Yeah, it's pretty jam packed! I usually have my phone and tissues in the front pockets, just so I can have easy access to them (the tissues, especially, since it's allergy season for me!)

I usually have some lip products and perfume in my bag...

 Little compact mirror, mini manicure set (in white) and various hair clips...

My three year old Samsung Jet with scratches on screen protector...

 I usually have my camera with me...

Little Gorjuss bag...

Generic Zyrtec, mini glass file, nail clipper, pain meds for headaches,
mini lotion and mini L'Occitane Cherry Blossom solid perfume...

Animal sunglasses and Strawberry Tic Tacs...

Tissues, FAB lotion (fragrance free!) and my Fossil wallet....

Lots of places for cards! And that picture of Ethan has been in
my various wallets for 7 years!

Another reason I love this wallet is because there's lots of room
for coins, which is a must in the UK as there are no £1 notes/bills
and they (and £2) come in coins and build up really quickly...

Overall, I love the bag. However, I don't tend to carry it with me when I know I'll be out and walking around all day because it does tend to slip off my shoulder quite a lot (I'm guessing because it's an all leather strap?) and because there's not THAT much room in the bag. The only thing that's not in any of these pictures are my keys because I don't tend to have them in my bag unless I'm going out!
