What's in my bag when I'm off for a night on the town? Let's see...
I usually have some sort of old, raggedy bag I've picked up from a charity shop or vintage store for about £5. I'm not part of the girly 'expensive bags and shoes' stereotype at all. If it were acceptable to carry around a plastic bucket on a bit of rope I probably would...maybe not the safest option in terms of theft, though!
First up, the essentials! Money in my awesome sugar skull purse (stained with fake blood, oops) which my sister bought for me from Claires ages ago. I love it and I'm praying the zip never breaks! Passport, with the most horrific ID photo you could ever witness - I look like I've been sleeping in a bush for six months, but it makes me chuckle whenever I see it haha. Keys with my Macadamia Farm keyring from Australia, blood donor keyring and flashy name keyring.
My beloved Soap and Glory 'Glam-a-lot' spray, which I always manage to cram into even the smallest of bags! OHWTO 'Pink Lady' solid scent, for little top ups if I'm waiting at a bar or in line. Clips since by the end of the night I will look like Stig of the dump and need something to tame my unruly mop! Or, if the clips fail, my trusty black hat to completely hide it! My little Indian style mirror is mega cute and handy, I've had it for years and it's served me well...
Last of all, whatever is on my lips. If I'm wearing a lip tar or stain, I squidge a bit into the lip mixing palette, pop my Stargazer lip brush inside and secure it all with a hair band. The lip brush is small enough that it will lie straight across the palm of your hand, and the lid snaps on securely, so you don't have to worry about losing it in your bag - perfect!
Not included - PJs, spare clothes, tooth brush and paste, deodorant and face wipes if I'm staying at a mate's house. I'll usually take a much bigger bag, with a smaller bag inside it, fling the big bag in the cloak room and take the smaller into the club with me. So much easier than lugging a big night bag around with you!
What do you take with you on a night out? Much more? Much less?
