Happy Saturday everyone! It’s been one busy week! And with this week being so busy, I’ve been on the go a lot, so I’ve been thinking about what I absolutely MUST have in my bag.. and poof! Today’s post appeared.
It’s kind of crazy how much stuff I carry around with me, and I think that’s partly due to women’s clothes often lacking in pockets! Or having pockets which are either fake or so tiny you can only fit a 50p coin in there.
It always makes me laugh when someone says to me: ‘Why is your bag so big? You surely don’t need it that big?’. Well you do if you haven’t got pockets and when your boyfriend asks if he can put of his stuff in your bag too, and sometimes I just like having a huge bag to be honest!
Let’s get into it!
1 . Your Purse – Duh!
I can’t go anywhere without it, even if I know I won’t be needing it.
2 . Hand Sanitiser
I hate using public toilets, and even though there’s soap and sinks, I still like to have that little extra clean feeling. Plus, all of my friends and family often ask me for it.
3 . Travel Perfume
If you’re someone who always has perfume on, I’d suggest getting yourself a travel perfume bottle! They’re super cheap and it’s great for when you’re on the go and want a little refresh.
4 . Headphones
I can’t go anywhere without my headphones now, partly because everyone nowadays are listening to music and podcasts on the go! Plus it’s great for if you need to make a phone call when out and about and need to hear someone better.
5 . Water
A bit of a change from what I used to take along with me, I never carried any form of drinks with me but these days I need to bring water with me! I get that you can buy a bottle, but why spend more money when you can bring it yourself?
6 . Hair Grips and Clips
I have recently started my curly girl hair journey (post to follow in a few weeks!) and with that comes not using any form of heat on my hair and letting my natural curls and waves do their thing, which means that every now and again my hair goes a bit nuts… So hair grips and clips are pretty essential for me at the moment!
7 . Nail file
I don’t know about you but I often chip my nails when I’m about and about, and hate it when they catch on my clothes, so over the years I’ve just got used to carrying a nail file around.
8 . At Least One Pen
I always need a pen when I haven’t got one so I’ve got into the habit of leaving one in my bag all the time, and voila’ no more needing a pen and not having one.
9 . Power Pack and Cable
As someone who loves taking photos, listening to music and because I use my phone as a sat-nav sometimes, my phones battery life goes down ridiculously fast, so a power pack is a must. My power pack doubles as a torch too!
10 . Different Earrings
This one’s not essential, but it’s something I like to always have with me for if I ever decide to switch up my look whilst I’m out and about!
And those are the essentials that I carry with my everywhere! I would say I’m a bit of a mum when it comes to what’s in my handbag, partly because I have basically everything plus the kitchen sink in there! Haha!
What are your handbag essentials? Did any of these surprise you? Let me know in the comments! Have a great weekend lovelies!!
