I bought the satchels at Toi market, the big bags are from different shops in town and some are from my sister in the UK.

What’s your style?

I love big bags with different compartments inside. I also love brown bags. Most of my bags are in different shades of brown such as beige, camel, tan or mocha. I like the colour because it matches everything and still stands out.

I change bags at least three times a week depending on where I’m going and the event.

My sunglasses, lip balm and phone.

Do you have any designer bags?

Sunglasses, card holder, diary, Covex antibacterial hand sanitiser, sequined sanitary purse, phone charger, hair brush, grey wallet, Spa lip balm, Bottle of wine that was a gift from a friend and a Nokia phone

I noticed you don’t have any makeup in your bag, why?

I don’t wear any make-up so don’t carry any.

What do you think every girl should have in her bag?
