What’s in the bag? My handbag essentials list

 

A while back Beauty Bulletin had a fun contest where you had post a picture of the contents of your handbag at that specific moment and tag them on Facebook. I loved it, because you got to see what everyone else is lugging around with them every day and get fresh ideas on what might be a handy addition to your handbag. My hubby says if anyone actually tried to snatch my bag and I managed to swing it and hit the perp on the head, it would knock him out cold!

 

I have a list of all my handbag essentials, which I currently am carrying in my handbag every day:

 

1.       Car keys

 

2.       House keys

 

3.       Wallet including my bank cards, store loyalty cards, emergency cash and a lot of slips

 

4.       Cell phone and sunglasses

 

5.       Liquid Bullet – this is a very strong pepper spray, which hubby INSISTS I carry around at all times

 

6.       Hand sanitiser – I love Oh So Heavenly’s Spritz and Go one, as it is for hands AND surfaces!

 

7.       A small tube of cream – I go and beg at department stores for samples, which are really handy, but if you don’t come right, Nivea also has small tubs.

 

8.       Sunscreen – lovely if you can go and get a sample sized one, but otherwise a small tube will do or one of those stick ones would also work

 

9.       Eyedrops

 

10.   Plasters ( always!) I have small kids and you can never predict when an owee will occur

 

11.   Lipbalm – I love Zambuc’s cherry flavoured one in the little tin

 

12.   Tissues

 

13.   Wet wipes – the Spur always hand out a pile of them when we eat there, so I always use the extra for my handbag ( ssssh)

 

14.   Headache tablets

 

15.   Feminine hygiene products

 

16.   A sewing kit – those hotel ones in the little cardboard folder are AWESOME for this

 

17.   Extra hairbands and clips

 

18.   Pen

 

19.   The current shade of lipstick I am wearing on that day

 

20.   Lip gloss in a neutral shade

 

21.   A mirror compact – I have a cute Fat Ladies one!

 

22.   Mattifying Oil Control paper – Catrice have a great one

 

23.   Pressed powder compact – I am using Coverall by Wet n Wild – its awesome!

 

24.   Mints

 

25.   hairbrush

 

So there you have it, ladies…my list of what is in my bag. I would love to hear what you have in your handbags!
