It can be easy to fill your handbag with so much that it becomes a nightmare to carry around. You should just carry essentials with you in your handbag. Here are some essentials for your handbag every modern woman needs!
A hairbrush is a necessity in your handbag as you never know when you might have a hair disaster. You might go out in the wind or rain, and your hair can end up all tangled and messy. Once you get to a mirror, you can get your hairbrush out and make sure it looks perfect again. There are so many you can get which are small enough to fit in your handbag.
Packet of tissues
Another thing you need in your handbag is a pack of tissues. When you sneeze, you lift your hands to cover your nose and can end up with messy hands. Or you may start coughing and need a tissue. Whatever the situation, a packet of tissues will stop you from having an embarrassing situation. It can stop you having to find a toilet to use some bog roll to clean your nose. Tissues are also a must if you are around little ones.
You will also need to carry around a lipstick with you so that you can top up the colour during the day. After all, they only last a couple of hours, especially if you are eating and drinking. Therefore, you will want to apply another coat. Make sure you check the different ones you can get. The top lipstick manufacturers are developing more every day, so check out the unique styles which suit you and buy one for your handbag. They are a convenient size so they won’t take up too much space.
While you are out, you may get sweaty and start to smell. Therefore, you should get a perfume to put in your handbag so that you can spray yourself and start smelling great again. You can get smaller versions of perfume which will fit nicely in your bag.
Tampon or pad
Another essential every woman needs in your handbag is a tampon or pad. Your period can start unexpectedly at any time, so you need to be prepared for this to happen. Just because you are mostly regular, doesn’t mean your body might decide to make it come on a different day. It makes it less embarrassing if it does happen at work or while you’re out, as you can use it quickly.
You need to put some mints in your handbag so you can keep your breath lovely and fresh. You don’t want to go on a date with a cute guy then can’t make a move because your breath isn’t smelling great. It’s also essential for when you have eaten at a restaurant or a cafe so you can ensure your breath is smelling fantastic.
You should check it regularly to see if you could throw away any old receipts or makeup you may have in there. I always find old sweets in the bottom of my bag, so I try and clear it out at least once a month!
