What's in Your Handbag, Julia Scodie?

Julia Scodie - handbag work bag jennifer hamley On Monday we met with Julia Scodie, who took the plunge, left her full-time Project Manager job and set up Exercise in the City - taking exercise classes directly to busy professionals in their workplace.  If you missed my chat with this inspiring lady, you can catch up here.  Julia is back today to share what she carries in her handbag (backpack!) to work all over the City of London. Over to you Julia! I have to carry so many things around during the day, I use a racksack. My favourite is my denim adidas originals (retro!). I carry that and always a Pilates mat too... Jennifer I'm waiting for the design of your K.T Workbag which I can attach my mat to! Julia Scodie - numbered work bag handbag contents (2) 1) Mobile phone/laptop – My mobile office as I do not have physical one! 2) Antibacterial wipes – To keep my mats and other Pilates equipment clean after each class. 3) Umbrella – essential as travelling around London all day you really are exposed to the elements.. Staying dry is key! 4) Nivea Moisturiser – My go to handy sized moisturiser. Don’t leave home without it. 5) Diary  - I love the old fashioned paper diary - backup for my appointments in case modern technology lets me down! 6) Pen/note pad – To make notes when meeting potential new clients and for making my to do list whilst on public transport. 7) Snack to keep my energy levels up - At the moment I'm loving Pip & Nut handy squeeze packs of their delicious nut butters 8) Makeup – face powder, liquid eyeliner and mascara.  I don’t wear much makeup when teaching -  but these are the essentials, and being out all day the odd top up is sometimes necessary if meeting potential clients! 9) Oyster card – essential for travel 10) Fitness band/Pilates block – useful for clients with muscle tightness to help them get a safe and effective stretch. 11) Flyers - everyone's a potential new client... so I always have some on me to hand out. 12) Wallet 13)  Keys Thank you for sharing Julia - I will certainly start sketching ideas of straps that we could add to a handbag for you for your mat!  I'm thinking a handbag/backpack design would work perfectly. Julia can be found across the internet on the links below - do get in touch with her if you have questions, or just say hi (she's lovely!)


Join me on Monday to meet another inspirational award winning woman in the world of business, Rebecca Newenham.

Wishing you a fabulous end to the working week, Jennifer x 320x50-stand-out-chocolate

Classy and functional!

Love my Model KT bag! Received bag in a nicely wrapped box and dust bag. Also received compliments on how beautiful the bag is. Strap is a little long for me since I'm a petite lady.. Would like additional holes so I can adjust the strap to fit me. Thanks Jennifer!

Thank you for your fabulous review Renee! You can make your strap shorter with this technique here (my fave way to wear my Model KT!), I'll also email you directly about getting some more holes in the strap =) Best wishes, Jennifer ❤️
A lovely complement to my KT and KT Mini

I'm now a proud owner of all three JH designs. My Sakura purse is super stylish and fits all the essentials.


Quick delivery nicely packaged it’s a Christmas gift

Small but perfectly formed

I bought this to compliment my Model KT and I was a little concerned about the size. This purse is small but mighty. I love it so much I use it out of work too. It has shown me I don't need a big purse as this holds all I need. I love it!

Style Perfection

I bought the Model KT in black for work. This bag is beyond my expectations. I can carry everything I need whilst looking stylish too. I often have to dash from location to location and this carries everything. The shopping bag is particularly hand if I need to nip out at lunch. I am so pleased I purchased this and I am considering the mini KT to compliment this.
