I recently came across these adorable wash bags created by Vanessa Arbuthnott, she’s based in the Cotswolds here in England and uses organic natural fabrics made in Scotland.  She offers a whole range of household and soft furnishings that are just adorable.   I love her simple style, delicious colour palette and range of prints.   I would say that, if pushed – my favourite print is  ‘song bird‘ in a sumptuous buttercup yellow. I’ve added this to my payday wish list (roll on Monday!). 

If you like to coordinate your handbag necessities, these wash bags are available in three sizes, small  medium and large.
I thought it would be fun to illustrate what’s currently residing in my lil’ wash bag… I’ve been using Garnier cleansing water, this works well to remove my make up and London pollutants that clog up your pores, along with  my trusty Clean & Clear face wash. 
Other beauty treats in this bag are truly the items I just can’t face the day  without, like Batiste dry shampoo – it’s a lifesaver on lazy mornings! Well to be fair,  it’s a big deal washing and drying my long mane. My signature day scent is Stella McCartney, I’m faithful to Stella.  I keep my makeup simple, MAC lipsticks, red of course and Benefit skincare.  I wouldn’t say it’s high maintenance, I’m just selective.  
All I need to keep it tidy and beautiful is this gorgeous Vanessa Arbuthnott lil’ bag.
