What's in my handbag (the small edition)...

Bag: Vintage

Living in Scotland means you have to be prepared for all weathers. No joke. As I don't like getting caught out, this means that I normally cart around a huge bag filled to the brim with items. However, since my return from Portugal (post coming soon), I have actually found that I have ditched the large bag in favour for a smaller one.

So here is  'What's in my handbag (the small edition)':

Soap & Glory Kick-Ass concealer
Marc Jacobs Honey Rollerball (not available in UK)
Aztec Umbrella
Mini Hairbrush
Red pouch (contains medication fyi)
Suede Skull Purse
iPhone Charger

Other items not pictured: iPhone & Keys

What do you keep in yours?

Pastel hues...

David Emanuel Plain Chiffon Waterfall Frill Top * £18.00

Bon Marche David Emanuel

Pastel items are not usually my forte. I have a tendency to spill things on very light pieces of clothing (what can I say....its hard to keep something clean!). However, more recently I have realised that if I don't conquer the fear of light clothing then I will be a 90 year old lady dressed top-to-toe in black (or other shades of varying dark pieces....).
Recently, the kind people at Bon Marche offered me the chance to review an item from their website. After much deliberation, I picked the Plain Chiffon Waterfall top from their David Emanuel range. 

This top is a gorgeous pastel colour which is actually brighter in real-life than what I thought. The pictures taken above were taken on an extremely rainy day and  therefore do not show how bright it is. I love the ruffle detail too as for someone with larger boobs, I think that it detracts a little from them.  

What do you think? Have you ever tried anything from Bon Marche
