Handbag Essentials

Saturday, 1 June 2019

I've never done a post like this one before, but I recently read another bloggers post, and thought it was such a good idea! I love to be nosey, so therefore seeing what other people keep inside their handbags on the daily basis, for a day out, or for a trip to the supermarket - I'm so intrigued! So other than the wrappers, accumulating number of receipts and loose plasters, this is what my handbag consists of on a daily basis.

It gives me heart palpitations when I leave the house without some sort of lip balm. I always find that whenever you don't need a lip balm, you have one on you. But that one time that you are really suffering with dry lips, your lip balm that lives in your handbag is NEVER there. Surely I can't be the only one?! You'll always find at least one tin of Vaseline in my handbag.

Hand Cream
Because I am always washing my hands (don't ask me why.. I just always do haha), my hands tend to get dry really quickly. So keeping a handy size - if you pardon the pun - in my handbag is a life saver for when my hands need a bit of care.

Whatever lipstick I chose to wear in the morning always remains in my bag, wherever I go. Just in case I need a top up. I always carry around the lipliner that I used in the morning too. My favourite if the Mac Whirl - it's gotten so small due to the amount of use that it's received, I really should get another haha.

Of course, this one goes without saying.

Hair Accessories
A hair brush always lives in my handbag, no matter how small it is. You never know when you might need one. Alongside that, I keep a handful of hair grips and hairbands, for putting my hair up if I need too, or if it is already up and needs some attention. Always have to be prepared haha.

What must you have in your handbag?
