Mini Bag Challenge with Debenhams

I'm a big fan of the current mini bag trend, I love a good quality mini bag as much as I love a novelty bag and boy do I love a novelty bag!  With this in mind Debenhams have set me a challenge to see if I can go a whole week fitting my life in a mini bag.  That is, fitting it into a mini bag without cheating!  I can often be seen walking along swinging a mini bag and then you'll notice the rather large tote bag I also carry to fit in everything I actually need.  So for the past week I have been stripped of my handy tote bag and am limiting myself to the essentials whilst giving my shoulder and back a much needed break.

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?



  1. How cute is this bag?! I love small bags which can still fit all the essentials - easy on the shoulders! ;)

  2. So glad you like it, it's adorable!

  3. I'm all about the large bags for day to day as I lug my A5 day-to-page diary with me everywhere I go. I don't think I'd manage a challenge like this.

  4. The bag you picked is lovely! This really would be a challenge for me, I love a big bag!
