    iPhone
    I love my iPhone. Even if everyone else on the train has one too...

    Teracotta warriors travel card holder
    This was a freebie from a British Museum exhibition promotion. It's getting a bit tatty now but the exhibition was amazing (plus, excellent posing potential on the tube) so I'm a bit attached to it now.
  3. 3
    Perfume
    This is such a juicy, fruity perfume - Nectarine Blossom and Honey. It's always a pick-me-up
    Jo Malone
  4. 4
    Fossil wallet
    Huuge wallet. I tried to use a smaller one but could never fit everything in...
  5. 5
    Pass card
    Work security pass with zippy extension cord and belt-clip.

    And I wasn't even a girl guide. Tissues, blister plasters and wallet with painkillers, rennies etc. Walking pharmacy!

    Keys
    ...of course. It has a glow-in-the-dark keyfob which is handy for finding it in the cavernous recesses of my handbag.

    Ted Baker bag
    I love this bag - smart but with some cool detailing. I loved the bright purple version but that might be a bit much with my purple jacket, purple glasses and purple shoes...

    Cotton carrier bag
    The pattern is from a baker's shop in Barcelona - I loved the graphic on the bag my bread came in, so I kept it, scanned it, and got it printed on a carrier bag.

    Book
    I've always got my nose in a book when I'm travelling (part of the reason my handbags have to be BIG).

    Cross Pen
    This was a birthday gift, and I love it. It's got peacock feathers and silver engraving on it, and feels really elegant to use.

It comes everywhere with me and has to cater for every eventuality - tube delays, pouring rain and shopping in Barcelona bakeries!
