In My Bag

April 8, 2015

PicsArt_1428485363254In order to avoid a handbag that’s messy and one where I have to pour everything out so as to locate what I am looking for, I have two small purses to help me organize everything for easy access. The first one is my cash and card holder and the second one is where I put my sunnies, pad pouch, coin purse and well pretty much everything else here!


Guess Wallet: well, I need not mention this, every woman would carry money/wallet in her purse, I am just emphasizing it.

Earphones/a book: that you can get lost in to pass time if your waiting or commuting or sitting alone in a cafe or when you need to listen to that jam that instantly uplifts your spirits!

Sunnies: -every girl’s best friend!

Tissues: -that serve as my oil blotting sheets since my T-zone area tends to get a bit oily as the day goes by and having tissue with me helps to absorb excess oil to control shine.

Bottle of water: – obey your thirst,friend!

Vanity Giorgio pouch: – to store cosmetics and small toiletries.

Wet wipes: – for sweltering days or extra –pesky stains

Tic tac /orbits/mints:-to give your breathe much needed freshness you don’t want your friends to know you had egg curry for lunch! Also mints leave your purse smelling heavenly!


Tres Bien Bright crystal solid perfume: For occasional touch ups during the day and to reapply when the course of my day changes. I love this one in particular since it being solid I don’t have to worry about spills or leaks and leaves my bag smelling *AmAzInG*. Its small and compact size makes it easy to tuck away in my bag and clutch! Big WIN! If you don’t have a travel-size perfume you could also treat your bag to a few spritzes so that it keeps smelling great just like you.

 Sleek Pout Polish Lip Balm: – is there anything worse than finding yourself with chapped lips and nothing to salvage the situation? Extra points if you carry a lipstick too in a color that instantly makes you feel a hundred times more powerful with a single swipe!

St. Ives renewing moisturizer: – that I use as my hand moisturizer that keeps them super soft and protects against the wear and tear of everyday life and it smells GREAT! Plus it is budget friendly and a miracle worker for dry, cracked hands!


Sanitary towel holder pouch : – for when aunt Flo is in town! Plus an extra for any woman who might be in need.

Fan di Fendi Card purse coin purse :– well, its initial purpose was to be a card holder but the dog-eared cards weren’t pretty so I re-purposed it to be my coin purse! Still trying to find a great card purse though because you never know who you will meet and when!


Nail clipper: – that doubles up as a tiny pair of scissors should I encounter a loose thread or anything of that sort.Also,you never know when a hangnail is going to strike , and they’re just about the most annoying (and unattractive)things ever. This little gadget helps fend off the pesky occurrences!

Nail file:-for the unexpected jagged nail!

Nail Polish Remover Pads: – because chipped nail polish isn’t cute on anyone!

Super glue: – for those times your shoes decide to rebel!

Hand sanitizer : – in order keep harmful germs at bay!

What’s your must-have purse item please do mention in the comments section below, I would be happy to add it in my daily carry on. 🙂

Thank you as always for stopping by.
