what's in my bag?

Although what's in my bag posts and videos have been around for years, I've never wrote my own. 
And that's simply because I've never really had a bag. Okay, obviously I've owned bags, quite a few, but none have been a staple that I use with every outfit. Then along came this brown satchel from River Island. Big enough to hold everything I need but still a good size to carry around everywhere. I adore the look of satchels, how they add an instant sleekness to an outfit. So, yeah, this bag is pretty cool and since I've got a collection of 'stuff' in it, I thought I'd share that with you. Cause that's a normal thing to do on the internet apparently. 

♥ I've started taking my fuijifilm polaroid camera with me whenever I leave the house just in case a photo opportunity arises (only five pictures left though... I must order some more off amazon!)

♥ I've had my purse, which is also from River Island, for about three years now so I'll hopefully treat myself to a new one soon.

♥ This month's Vogue is in my bag currently as I bought it while I was in town. How beautiful is Jordan Dunn?

♥ Trident Splash chewing gum. I'm not sure if it's strange to recommend chewing gum but you should try it out if you haven't already, it's so good!

♥ My 2015 planner is in there to encourage me to get organised...

♥ My Iphone, which is actually my sister's old phone, is usually with me although I have to say I'm not as addicted to it as I thought I would be. Still it's nice to finally have a phone again.

And that's everything in my bag right now. It's kinda weird how popular these posts are when you think about it...
Anyway, have you done a what's in my bag post? If so, link it below! I'm nosy!

we found wonderland, you and I got lost in it

Skirt, ASOS / Top, ASOS / Shoes, Topshop / Bag, River Island /

Fun fact: when it comes to fashion, I will always love winter more than summer.
I think that's because the clothes are dark (like my soul, mwhaha) and they cover everything. I know I'm not the only one who dreads 'bikini season' since there are whole magazines dedicated to getting your body ready for summer - which sounds like too much effort to me, thanks. Also winter clothes are definitely suitable for the weather in Ireland. Shorts? Not so much. Yet, despite my love for black polo necks and tights, I'm already daydreaming about July and August. Now that Christmas is long gone, only that extra bit of tummy weight remaining, I need something to look forward to. And school is going to be pretty stressful until June with AS levels I imagine. I'm so ready for brighter mornings because getting out of bed is ridiculously hard when even the sun is too tired to rise.
But you know what you can't do during the summer? Build a snowman. ("Do you wanna build a snowman?" ...I'm sorry.) I shall leave you with a picture of this snowmanwoman.

Title song: Wonderland / Taylor Swift

Are you looking forward to summer yet? What do you prefer: winter or summer fashion?
