What’s in my bag 2018 | Caseapp giveaway!

Hello everyone,

This is the first post for my back to school series this year! I am so excited because I have planned so much content for you all. Today I’ll be showing you what is in my bag and in this post, I will be hosting my first ever giveaway with CaseApp!

My Bag

2018-08-15 02.44.20 2.jpg

In the past, I have never had a good experience with Primark bags but I kind of fell in love with this shoulder bag. It is very spacious and it feels sturdy so hopefully, it will last all year.

Large compartment


In the large compartment, I will have the basics such as:

  • A planner
  • Binder
  • Folder

The blue binder and wallet are from Wilko and the pastel dividers are from Rymans. You guys will find out where this planner is from on Saturday as I will be doing a separate post for an organisation post. I’m thinking of leaving the planner in the small compartment as it would be easier and quicker to grab.


I also have a:

  • Pencil case
  • Book
  • Waterbottle

The pencil case is from Wilkinson‘s last year collection and I don’t believe they have this anymore. I will be taking a book because I plan on reading a lot more books (as I have been slacking. I will choose a book that I recently bought but, I can’t decide! Read the haul here). As for a water bottle, I use an insulated one from Amazon. I really wanted to show a picture but it’s blue and pink reflective one and it ruins the lighting.


Lastly, I keep my phone in the zip pocket in the big compartment of the bag and my phone case is from CaseApp. I want to thank CaseApp for sending me two beautiful cases that I was able to customise and I love how they turned out. I am such a clumsy person and have dropped my phone numerous times and my case and the phone is totally fine. They have a variety of designs for different types of phones and Caseapp gave me a code for you all to use to get 20% off: LIFEASNAJIDA20

This brings me to the

    I love the bag, it looks so chic. Never though that it would be from Primark, it looks more expensive than that definitely. xx

    I think my favourite is the fact you can make your own design! I don’t have any of those types of phones, but I’d love a phone holder ๐Ÿ™‚
