I received the most gorgeous grey leather mini tote bag from the Betty Jackson Black range which is part of the Designers at Debenhams collection. The bag is made from buttery soft leather with a coordinating floral lining. It has one compartment with a internal zipper pocket and two internal pouches which are perfect for keeping your phone and keys in. How is it no matter how small your bag is you still have to rummage around trying to find your phone?!
So what are my essentials? I really have stripped it right back - my wallet, keys, sunglasses and a few bits of top up make up. I tend to carry the make up around with me just in case but hardly ever actually use it but can't quite bring myself to lose the comfort blanket. Since I got an iPhone 6 I have been able to ditch the rechargeable phone charger as the battery lasts all day! Woooooo!! I also have my phone with me always but it's not pictured as I am using it to take the photos. My week has been a success, I haven't missed lugging my tote bag around and haven't needed any of the things I like to carry in it. Are you too a fan of the mini bag trend?
