12 HAND BAG ESSENTIALS

Every day before I leave the house there are a few items I must have with me.Men claim that being a woman is hard but I think that being a woman is easy.Its all about being well prepared.

I have come up with a list of 12 items that are a must have in the handbag at all times.

ITEM 1: LIP GLOSS/LIP STICK

One of these items is important to have in your handbag since the lips easily dry out due to exposure.Having lip gloss on gives me beautiful and  luscious lips.It also boosts my confidence and the moisture prevents dry and chapped  lips.

ITEM 2:WET WIPES

Wet wipes come in handy when I need to clean my face in the middle of the day , wipe my hands or a stain on my blouse at lunch time.

ITEM 3: HAND LOTION

Its important to keep my hands moisturized to avoid wrinkling or peeling of the skin on my hands.I wash my hands constantly after my bathroom breaks so I ensure that I always apply lotion after.

ITEM 4:HAND SANITIZER

I always like to clean my hands with a hand sanitizer thoroughly before handling food or touching my face because the alcohol it contains  kills germs.Its a good alternative to washing hands where water is unavailable.

ITEM 5: POWDER & BRUSH

I use powder to touch up my make up in the middle of the day.My skin is oily and I  get shinny on the T-area of my face by 2pm. Putting a little powder on my face helps me look fresh and alert.

ITEM 6: HAIR BRUSH/COMB

It always looks good to have neat hair.Carrying a comb in your bag  lets you touch up your hair fast without having to visit a salon.

ITEM 7:NAIL FILE

Nails can get chipped or have sharp edges due to the work done during the day.I file  my nails as soon as this happens to keep them short and neat.Its a quick way of fixing nails before heading for a manicure.

ITEM 8: POCKET TISSUES

Have you ever spilled a drink on yourself or got a stain on your shoe that itches you to wipe it off ?or  needed to sit on a bench in the park or street and its dusty?Well pocket tissues come in handy when you are away from the bathroom and the kitchen.Reason number two is because it’s  embarrassing for a man to ask me for tissue and I do not have any.

ITEM 9: SUN GLASSES

They not only look good on me,but also helps protect  my eyes from the sun.

ITEM 10: BODY SPRAY

Its crucial to always smell fresh even after a long and busy  day.Since I can not carry a whole bottle of body spray.I end up looking for a small bottle of body spray,that fits in my organizer, to put on when I need to freshen up.The smaller the better.

ITEM 11: NOTE BOOK & PEN

In the error of android phones and tablets,its does not make sense to carry a notebook.I am however,a very old fashioned lady and writing things down is part of my thinking process and data entry.I must also  have a book and pen to also make giving instructions easier.

ITEM 12: MINT

My breath has to smell amazing all through.

The other reason I keep mint is; Offering mint to someone with bad breath is also an easy way of getting rid of the stink without embarrassing the person you are talking to.
