In my DeMellier
I picked the Mini Berlin as it's a classic. Chic and discreet, I will wear it at work and on the school run, knowing it will transcend seasons. It is of course personalised with my embossed initials!
Perricone M.D depuffing eye serum is essential, as my makeup goes on at 6.30am and if I'm going to an event straight from the office such as a Chanel presentation, this helps me feel a little more revived. I also love their lipstick in a natural shade. I carry a travel size Eau de Toilette from Narciso Rodriguez - this classic musk sent is always commented on.
I always have a jewellery pochette to keep a pair of earrings in to dess up a daytime look for an evening event. Jessica McCormack and Ana Khouri are two favourite jewellers of mine. I am old-fashioned and still adore a Smythson paper diary. I also carry a croc heart keyring embossed with my initials as I adore personalised items.
My wallet is a small size Chloe that can fit inside all my favourite handbags, large or small. Inside I always carry my Revolut MasterCard, which has become an essential travel companion as you don't get charged any exchange rate commissions.
I live in London with my husband, my twin 9-year-old girls and Tarka the lurcher. I always carry a photo of my twin girls, and in my bag you can sometimes find a few hairbands and a pale pink mini Mason Pearson hairbrush, for me and for the girls!
