What’s in my bag- Rome edition

rome wimbLast week before heading to Rome I decided that I didn’t want a big handbag that I had to lug around with me all day whilst sight seeing and eating ice cream. I had a online for handbags which I could wear cross  body and which were also light-weight and pretty. I spotted this Dorothy Perkins one on the House of Fraser website and fell in love with it as it can also be worn as a clutch.

My boyfriend was a bit of a star in Rome and offered to carry my DSLR camera in his rucksack so I just had to pack a few more of my essentials.

In terms of beauty I kept it minimal, a Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder to obviously powder my face but which also has a great size mirror, to go with that I packed my Real Techniques Setting Brush- it’s my favourite! Just incase my eyeliner did decide to melt off (it was warmmm!) I packed my Sisley So Intense Liner and my Burberry Full Kisses lipstick in Rose Apricot for post pizza application.

With that there are a few essentials; a phone charger and european adapter, my vlogging camera for quick videos and my favourite La Moda Sunglasses. When trying to keep my bag light I also swap out my big chunky purse for a smaller coin purse, this one actually lives inside my larger purse so is really convenient. In my purse I kept the basics; ID, money and my bank card.

I’m so glad I kept it light for Rome as we walked so much! I can’t wait to share more Rome posts over the coming month so keep an eye out!

    those sunglasses are beyond beautiful! I use a little bag most of the time, just makes life easier for going anywhere. I don’t carry much either, find you don’t need most of it anyway 🙂

    You’ve definitely got the essentials!

    I’m currently going through the dilemma of what to pack – I’m flying out to Italy on the 2nd!

    Nice selection of products! I also like to keep things light and fresh when I travel.

    omg those sunglasses look amazing! I’ve just dug out my Bourjois Healthy Mix powder recently and I’m more obsessed with how it smells than how it works tbh
