Handbag Essentials

I’m so done with lugging around loads of unnecessary things in my bag so I’ve had a huge clear out. Apart from the obvious essentials such as my purse and phone I’ve narrowed it down to these six items.

Lip Balm

My Lips have been extremely chapped lately and nothing seems to soothe them other than good old Carmex! A definite must have.

RRP: £2.59

Hand Cream

I always carry around a hand cream as my hands get so dry this time of year, I’m currently using The Body Shop’s mango one which smells good enough to eat.

RRP: £5

Hand Sanitiser

When travelling on public transport hand sanitiser is a life saver. This Merci Handy cherry one is my favourite.

RRP: £2.90

Headphones

I’d be lost without my headphones and this Skullcandy pair come with a little faux leather pouch meaning they don’t get tangled up in your handbag.

RRP: £12.99

Tangle Teezer

I take my tangle teezer everywhere to keep my hair in check.

RRP: £12.49

Perfume

A roll on perfume is perfect for touch ups throughout the day and this Zara one in the scent ‘cashmere rose’ smells divine.

RRP: £3.99

Perfumes For Spring/Summer

L’Eau De Rose

The L’eau de rose perfume by Jeanne Arthes is definitely a new favourite of mine, I received it in my February glossybox and have been loving it since. It’s so light and girly and perfect for everyday wear.

‘Representing simple elegance, L’Eau de Rose reflects the sensual and modern woman. A refreshing and sophisticated composition for a classy and stimulating fragrance. A perfume which represents the delicate and seductive woman perfectly – a homage to romance and femininity.’

 RRP: £20.30 for 30ml

Lovestruck

I’d never used a Vera Wang perfume before I received this one for my birthday in February but I’m loving it! It’s the perfect scent for summer evenings as it is quite deep and musky without being too heavy.

‘There’s an instant attraction to the mouth-watering pink guava and mandarin which is followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom.Behind it all, precious woods and sheer musk combine to create a passionate elegance. Vera Wang Lovestruck represents an irresistible romance and captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion.’
