A woman’s handbag is a pretty sacred thing. In fact, many men are actually scared to go into a lady’s bag. They just don’t know what they will find! And of course some women do keep a whole bunch of junk in their bag but, that’s half of the fun right! A purse of a bag is an extension of the person that owns it. It is carried everywhere and holds all of the valuable and essential items that its owner will need throughout the day. Everyone is different though and carries around different things with them. Here are some bits and pieces that could really help you out of a sticky situation.
- A good hand cream
This is especially handy to have on your throughout the winter months; Hands get cold and dry, and no one likes that. There’s nothing worse than wanting to moisturize your hands but realise you can’t because you haven’t got any cream. Simply slip a little tub of your favourite hand cream into your bag, and you won’t regret it.
- Safety pins
This is a personal favourite and has saved many of my friends a number of times. Imagine you’re out to dinner at a fancy restaurant. You go to the bathroom and as you do up your skirt, your zipper breaks! Awful. Terrifying! If you carry a few decent sized safety pins in your bag, you may just be able to get away from the situation without too much drama. A pin will temporarily fix something until you can get home to die of shame and embarrassment.
- Things to keep your hands busy
You could be alone in a pub or you could be in Shoreditch waiting for someone to take you to dinner. Whatever the occasion it’s sometimes nice to have something to keep you occupied if you’re on your own. You might want to pull out a book to read, or maybe you can download an app onto your phone (your phone is obviously always in your bag). If you vape, it’s a good idea to never take your vape kit out of your bag, that way you won’t lose it! No one likes looking bored, so make sure you always have a little something up your sleeve to keep you busy.
- A USB stick
If you’re a busy woman with a busy job, it’s a good idea to never leave your home without your trusty USB stick. You’ll always be able to backup your important documents and keep them on you if you should need them. This also makes you look super organised, so it’s a great habit to get into.
- Your signature lipstick
You never know when you’re going to need to suddenly look pulled together and polished. If you keep your favourite lipstick in your bag, you’ll be able to look good and feel confident at a moment’s notice! Try to keep it in a little compartment pockets, so you don’t run the risk of the lid coming off if it, staining everything in your bag.
