Introducing: What's In My Handbag?

Today I have been featured on What's In My Handbag, a wonderful new beauty website where you can see what industry insiders, generally fashionable and beautiful people (and me!) keep in their makeup and handbags.

If you hover over the labels you'll be able to read my description of the product, how I like to use it and why. You'll also be able to mark if you already own the product, or if you'd like to try the product. These build up your 'beauty cabinet' which acts as your ultimate beauty lust list. If you click on me up at the top of the page you can read my bio and see all of the bags I have featured on the site (just one at the moment!) You also have to option of 'liking' the bag on Facebook with the heart in the top corner, and you can also leave comments on the bag if you are logged into Facebook. The arrows on either side allow you to scroll though all of the bags on the site. If you already have an account, you can view my bag and play with all of its features here.

As well as my bag, the site already features snapshots of what some of my favourite people carry in their bags, and I've also been introduced to some really interesting people I had not heard of because I stumbled across their bag.

I think the handbag I was most excited to find was India Knights, one of my favourite writers over at The Times, and, aside from Caitlin Moran, the reason I have a Times Online subscription. I read practically every article she writings, and some of her hilarious Twitter conversations with Caitlin really make my day. Speaking of Cailtin Moran, that is a dream handbag I'd love to peek into...

I was also really excited to be able to peek into the bag of one of my all time favourite bloggers bags, Rose from the brilliant London blog The Londoner. I am rather jealous of her Chanel nail polish and her Mulberry goodies... 

Apparently there is currently a pretty hefty wait list to get into this invite only site to be able to check out all the snapshots of these awesome handbags (also included are bags from Sasha Wilkins (Liberty London Girl), Nina Leykind (Creative Director of Eyeko) and Sarah Wong (Temporary:Secretary), but to make sure you can get in as soon as possible, you can join the list using this link.

What do you carry around in your makeup or handbag?
