A handbag is something that you carry along everywhere you go. You carry several things in your handbag which you think you may need at any time. Let us find out about essential items that must be carried in your handbag.
In my opinion these are 10 things that you must carry, no matter where you go.
1. Tissue paper
Is your eyeliner falling over your face or is your lipstick smudged? Do you need to wipe your hands somewhere after a meal or just dab the sweat off your brow? A tissue paper will come in handy when you are out. Hence, make sure that you never leave without it.
2. Lip gloss
Many women have this habit of biting their lips. As a result, they end up eating the color on their lips. Similarly while talking, eating and traveling; it is hard for the lipstick to stay intact on the lips. Hence, it is advisable to carry lip gloss along wherever you go, to keep your lips glowing throughout the day.
3. Hand cream
Very often, while traveling, the skin on your hand tends to dry up. If you want to keep your hands soft and supple, make sure that you carry a good hand cream in your handbag, just in case you bump into your crush.
Does this even require an explanation? Every girl must make sure that she carries some tampons along while she’s traveling. Even if you are not expecting your periods, it never hurts to be safe.
5. Emergency numbers
Suppose your cellphone battery goes down, it is always advisable to write down numbers of your
family, close friends, colleagues and local authorities. If you have telephone numbers you can always ask for help or advice whenever needed.
6. Identity proof
You never know when this comes in use. Make sure that you carry some kind of your identity proof. It can be your passport, your driver’s license or any other proof of your identity.
7. Pen and a Notepad
While you are traveling, in case, you need to take a note of something, a pen and a notepad turns out to be really useful. Plus, they are light in weight, and so easy to carry around.
8. . Cash and Credit cards
Now, let’s come to the main use of a handbag. Cash is always useful while you’re traveling. You never know when you may require it. Hence, make sure that you always carry a sufficient amount of cash depending on the place you’re going to. It is not always safe to carry a big amount of cash along. But you never know when you may unexpectedly require more cash than you’re carrying. Therefore it is always advisable to carry a credit card along when you’re traveling far away.
9. Mobile phone
Even in case you forget any of the above, you can always use your phone to call someone to help you out, instead of wandering on the streets searching for a phone booth. Apart from this, games on a phone will keep you occupied when you are super bored. In case of an emergency, a cell phone can be a serious life saver, literally!
10. Hand Sanitizer
A small hand sanitizer bottle is a very useful thing. Daily, you get in contact with germs unknowingly. A hand sanitizer helps your hands stay free of germs. And there are places where you may not get soap easily. Your small hand sanitizer bottle comes in handy then.
11. Safety pins
A safety pin can help you face embarrassing situations when your button has popped out or your zip is stuck down. So keep a few safety pins too.
If your shoe is hurting your feet or if you want to cover a cut, a Band-Aid will always come to your rescue. Keep one or two.
A bottle of perfume will save your day surely. Wherever you go, just spray a little and smell great. Small perfume bottles are available, so it doesn’t add much to the weight.
Last but not the least, one of the most useful items that you should always have in your handbag. We don’t even have to tell you the reason.
Not having the right thing at the right time can lead to a lot of inconveniences or sometimes, even embarrassment. Hence, carrying a few important things along can be really helpful. Now you know that a purse does much more than just complimenting your outfit.
