What's in my bag

Hey everyone!
I love this tag and always love seeing what's in everyone else's bag, so I thought I'd show you what's in mine.

I just got this nice Longchamp bag in the winter sale for like 45€, so it was a steal! It's this champagne colored classic shape Longchamp, with the signature imprint on it. It is a very simple bag, easy to carry around, and on the inside does not have any compartiments, it's your classic shopping bag.

I love the little details, the horseman on the flap, and the handles are made of leather. All in all, on sale I think this is really worth the investement.

On to the things inside:
- A Moleskin small notebook, for  jotting down stuff. Haven't really used it that much.
- My Coach wallet in pink - I really love it, it is very practical, the zip makes it so much easier to handle than the normal flap ones. This was a present from my father and mother in law for Christmas.
- My Rayban case that holds my Rayban Wayfarers
- A small leather pouch from Gap that holds all my small stuff, so that they don't get lost in my bag
- My Isotoner umbrella because in Paris you never know when it's going to rain, the weather changes a lot. I recently replaced my umbrella because my old one was broken and huge, and really heavy. So I was glad to find this one, it's really the smallest one I could find. And I love the colors on it.

This is what the wallet looks like inside. very practical, has lots of compartiments for your fidelity cards, and other crap.

 So in the little pink pouch I have lipsticks and lipglosses, a mirror, a handcream and my Oyster card. Now you will all wonder what am I doing with an Oyster card I don't live in London. Well I don't but we have some friends that live there, and we visit them like 3 times a year, and travelling by metro in London is cheaper with an Oyster card.

On to smaller stuff
- chewing gum off course
- my car key with the huge dog keychain
- my mp3 player and the headphones
- my house keys with the monkey keychain and cow keychain I got from my husband, and the chip keychain I got from my brother from Vegas ( Yeah I know too many keychains, but I love them)
- my Monoprix reusable bag
- my Nina Ricci pen - a present from my husband

And that's it! Hope you enjoy this post, let me know in the comments what is in your handbag.

Essie Chinchilly & OPI The man with the golden gun

Hey everyone!!
I am so excited about this OPI gold top coat, that I did another mani with it. And it really goes with everything!! I am totally loving this!

This time I applied it on top of Essie Chinchilly which is a great taupe cream. I applied one coat of The man with the golden gun. I just really don't know what to tell you more about this.  It is gorgeous!!

Essie Lights and OPI - The man with the golden gun!!

Soooo excited about this one guys!!
Let's start at the beginning: I found this Essie in the sale at Monoprix, so all you girls that live in France, they had like 4 colors in the Sale. I thought this one was pretty cute, so I bought it for 6€. It is ok compared to the 12€ we normally have to pay for these here.

It is a pink neon finish nail polish, so that means it dries matte, and needs topcoat to shine. I love the color it is so pretty, but like I have found with neons don't last long in moist environements, so when I use these and go to the seaside, they peel in like a day.

And for the most exciting part I got my hands on The Man with the golden gun by OPI, that was the only polish in the Skyfall collection that I wanted, and I was not able to find this here. I don't know if anyone as come across it in France, because I looked for it everywhere and couldn't find it.

But the nicest girl Emilie from Greeneyespinknails got it for me. She lives in Switzerland, and they sell it there. She was so nice that she offered it to me for Christmas. So Thank you so much Emilie!
So you probably all know by now what this is , it is a clear base, with gold flakes in it. I absolutely adore this, it is so gorgeous, and it goes well on everything!! Really matches every color.

Here are the photos: - 2 coats of Essie - Lights, and one coat of OPI - The man with the golden gun

Orly - Pure Porcelain & Essence - Circus Confetti

I know I already swatched this one, but I really like it and I am now in the middle of revisiting some of my favourite nailpolishes.

This is an ivory cream polish, that looks good on everyone I think. It is a great nude, very warm color, applies like a dream, in two coats it is opaque. I had some wear on it after 3 days, but I did not wrap the tips, because I'm lazy like that.

On top I applied a coat of my Essence - Circus Confetti which is like a really glitter packed clear base with lots of different sized and colored glitter.

 Here are the photos hope you enjoy.

Dior - Marilyn & Essence - Make it Golden

Hey everyone!
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas, and lots of presents, cause I did!! I got a Kindle and a GHD hair straightner. I was a very lucky girl!! A happy new year to you guys too!!

This polish, was my duty free purchase, and I had been lusting over it for a long time. It is a pretty, classic red cream polish. I really love it, and the packaging is so cute, looks like a Christmas tree decoration.

It is opaque in almost one coat, for you guys who don't like to apply lots of coats, this is just perfect. For me it was two coats, because I like the texture the polish gets with the second coat.

I am also trying out a new topcoat, Sally Hansen's Insta dry at Emilie's  recommendation - Thank you Emilie it is everything that I like in Seche Vite and it doesn't shrink the polish.

I am still a big fan of Seche Vite, but we can't really get it here in France, and I used to order it along with my 8 polishes from Transdesign, but since I have decided to calm down on the polish buying, I have to change top coats, so I think I may have found the solution. For those of you who live in France - you can find this at Sephora, for 9€.
