It’s a bit of a running joke with my husband that my handbags weigh a ton because of how much stuff I carry ‘just in case’.
I’m a mum so I pretty much always have things like tissues and wet wipes although it’s amazing how many times these end up not being used on my son!
I had the Soap and Glory advent calendar at Christmas and really enjoyed getting all the mini versions of things like Hand Food hand cream and Original Pink body spray. I was never sure whether the beauty advent calendars were worth it but I really enjoyed mine, and I am still using the products which were perfect for throwing in your handbag.
I’ve always got a lipbalm, nail file and my 4Head stick. I used to carry loads of painkillers incase I got a migraine while out and about, but I’ve found this little stick amazing for keeping the worst of the symptoms at bay and it means I don’t have to take as many paracetamol.
My Minnie Mouse mirror and a couple of lippie options go everywhere too- a gloss and a matte just in case! Really enjoying the lip crayon from my December Glossybox from Doucce Cosmetics in shade Winterberry a gorgeous red which really suits my skintone.
Finally I always have my diary, a pen and a notebook. Yes I still love a paper diary, even though I put all my appointments in our shared calendar on my iPhone as well! Paper chase is one of my favourite shops!
What’s your handbag essentials and is it as weighty as mine?!
