My Handbag Essentials
These are my daily essentials which always have a place in my handbag. I keep them in a little pouch from My Little Beauty because it has proven to be the perfect size for all of my handbags.
My basic and not very exciting handbag essentials include; paracetamol, allergy tablets, blister plasters, a nail file, a packet of tissues and a mini deodorant. These aren't things I need on a daily basis but on occasions where you do need them you don't want to be without.
Something I can't live without is a lip balm, I always have to have some sort of lip balm with me at all times and my favourite is the Burt's Bees Lip Balm. I love these ones so much because they don't leave your lips with any oily residue, just really moisturised.
Another thing that isn't a necessity but something I like to have with me is the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I have been working hard at the moment to try and improve the condition of my nails, and applying a cuticle cream throughout the day has really helped to hydrate my nails.
I don't carry a massive amount of makeup with me on a daily basis, but I do like to always keep a powder compact and a lipstick in my handbag. My favourite powder compact is the La Biosthetique Extreme Stay Powder, because it's great for both a light touch up and for building up coverage. I usually throw in whichever lip product I am wearing on a daily basis but a staple in my bag is the Clinique Pop Colour Lipstick in Nude Pop.
