Five Handbag Essentials

12th March 2017 by naffy

Work bag essentials I have the uncanny ability to carry the world with me wherever I go. Be it to work, to the city centre or an evening meal, you would see me with the biggest handbag imaginable. Since then I have managed to streamline it down to the bare essentials so I thought I would share with you the  Five Handbag Essentials I cannot live without.

Hand Cream 

You all know my obsession with Hand Cream so I always make sure I have one in my bag with me. My current favourite is from Garnier and it is their Ultimate Blends Hand Restoring Hand Cream. 


The only make up item I carry around with me is the lipstick I am wearing that day. This is the only thing that changes on a regular basis in my bag as I change my lipstick at least once a week.


I always try to steal a couple of minutes to find some time to read. It is usually on my way to and from work so I always have a book on hand for those moments. I am currently really Am I normal yet by Holly Bourne and so far I am enjoying it.


I mean a purse is pretty explanatory. You never know if you need some change. I also keep my keys in my purse so I know where they are instead of heaving to search my bag for them.


You know those times when you feel like you need an umbrella but do not have one? Yes, I was the same so after a trip to Accessorise, I came away with this cute star print umbrella. It probably does not get that much use as umbrellas + wind = tragic idea but it is there for emergencies. I am nothing but prepared.

If you want to see the entire contents of my my bag I filmed whats in my bag – work edition video over on my YouTube channel. I go in to a little more detail and show you some of my other day to day essentials.

Next week on the channel is a New in / first impressions video so make sure you are subscribed if you are interested in that.

What are your Five Handbag Essentials that you have to with you at all times? Let me know in the comments.
