Things Every Woman Should Have in Her Bag
Dear Superwoman, I know you carry your entire world in your handbag. I do the same as well. Just wanted to share my list with you all so that you recheck if your missing on something important.
Before starting actual list, I will give a bulleted list of bare essential things every woman should have in her bag. Trust me, you can’t go without them in today’s time.
Bare essentials are the items all human being requires while going out.
- Mobile Phone
- Phone Charger/ Power Bank
- Your Room/Car keys
1. Small Makeup Bag
Carrying a small makeup pouch is necessary. You never know when you need to touch up or go out for a cup of coffee.
But again, I like to keep it simple and functional with minimal products
- BB/CC cream
- A lip Balm
- Travel size Moisturizer
- A Compact
- Kajal/ Eyeliner
- A lipstick
- Some Q tip
2. Tissues/Wet Wipes
I like to keep a small wet wipe packet as they are very handy when it comes to removing your makeup on the go or just to wipe your face and feel fresh.
I do keep some tissues as well just to help me with spillage or something. You know travelling with a baby is like unexpected adventure every second
3. A Notepad and a Pen
You never know when you are going to get an amazing idea which you need to note down. You may need someon’s address or simply plan your day wherever you are.
You will say mobile is there to help. But there is nothing like a piece of paper and pen. And what if I say there is no battery.
4. Some nuts /healthy snacks
I can’t stress enough on this point. Hunger pangs can strike you anytime while you are outside your home. Instead of relying on junk food, I like to keep it healthy with some dry fruits, protein bar.
I like to carry of healthy ready made items like-
- Dry fruits and Nuts
- Fresh fruits (Not full bag but 1 or 2 )
- Moori or Puffed Rice
- Roasted Peanuts /Fox nuts
5. Hand Sanitizer
All of us carry one in our handbag now a days. I do as well.
But, if at all you don’t, please please carry a smaller one. It’s really important
6. Safety Pins
A friend in need is a friend indeed. And by carrying a bunch of safety pin you are going to save yourself from embarrasing wardrobe malfunction as well as you can help your friends in need.
May be they are tying a saree in office and forgot the pin.
I have done it many times in my office and my dear frnds with well packed handbags came to rescue me
7. Sanitary napkins
Mother nature can knock your or your friends door anytime when you are our out. So make sure you are carrying some in your handbag.
8. A small mirror
A small mirror is always good when you want to do little touch ups wherever you are. However you can skip this if you are carrying a compact with mirror. That helps as well.
Again not complaining but many of us due to whatsoever reasons suffer from bad bread. What if an important meeting is going to happen?
Be prepared and carry a tiny packet of mint or gum whatever you like and enjoy minty fresh breath.
10. A Hairbrush/ Comb
Thanks to a windy day or you just want to look a bit more put together. Carry a cute small comb or hairbrush and flaunt your gorgeous manes effortlessly.
11. Elastic Hair bands/Clutchers
These are at least must for me. Many a times I go out in loose hair and after some time I get tired of them coming on my face. But thanks to a clutcher which always hangs by my handbag handle, I don’t even need to open my handbag for it.
12. Small Medicine bag
A small pouch in which you can have few band aids and then your essentials medicines. They will help me in case of emergency cuts and wounds or pains such as unbearable migraine while you are amidst a forest.
13. Water Bottle
Saying well hydrated is the utmost requirement of human body. And there is no better way to stay hydrated then carrying a water bottle wherever you go. So always make sure to carry your favorite water bottle with you.
14. Small Foldable Umbrella
You may call me old school for adding this up here. But you know It helps me a lot. Be it from sudden rain or scorching summer sun, it’s kind of a friend who is always there for me.
If you are like me, feel free to carry a small umbrella in your handbag.
15. Small perfume bottle
All of us want to smell fresh and feel fresh. A tiny perfume bottle can come really handy wherever you are . So make sure to carry a cute perfume bottle and smell heavenly always on the go
This was my take on things every woman should have in her bag.
