Updated Handbag Essentials

Sunday, 14 June 2020

I'm sure that I am not the only one who is constantly changing up the bits and pieces that are kept in their handbag. Especially if you treat yourself to a new one. Or if you're like me, and always say yes when asked 'would you like your receipt?', then you are also constantly going through and clearing out your bag.. These are the items that I like to keep in my handbag. 

Of course! You can't have a handbag without a purse. Even if it is just for loose change to pay for parking. I know a lot of people have their cards on their phone for Apple Pay, but I don't use that, and like to have my cards on me. How cute is this one?! I was kindly treated to a new handbag for my birthday last year and my other Ted Baker purse was too big for this gorgeous little bag. Sam choose this card wallet as a Christmas present, and it goes so well with the bag. 

Hand Sanitiser
I think this one goes without saying - but definitely an essential to have in my handbag at the moment. It comes in handy at work, to wash my hands quickly before having a snack. Plus it's the convenience of having it in your handbag, as then you will always have it on you. 

Lipsticks Of Choice
That's right, plural. I am always swapping and changing my lipsticks that I wear on the daily, but I will always carry it with me, in case I need to top up throughout the day. My favourites at the moment as always are the Mac Whirl lipliner, with Mac Yash matte lipstick. If I fancy a bit of gloss then it's the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fu$$y. The lip gloss is in place of my beloved Vaseline. 

Hand Cream
Can't be without a tube of hand cream at the moment. With the rate of washing my hands, I hate not having any hand cream near by. I picked this one up on a weekly shop and I am obsessed. It smells like coconut, almond heaven. The scent lingers too, which I love. If you're not a fan of overly scented products, than this won't be for you, but I love!

  4. Yes about the handcream!! ITs become a staple a mine x

  5. Hand sanitiser has definitely become an essential these days! But a hand cream was already something I always kept in my handbag, and now I need it even more. I wash my hands so many times it dries my hands out like crazy!

    That's a lovely Ted baker bag (ànd purse!) you've got there, gorgeous colour!
