A question a woman is frequently asked, “why to you have such a big bag?” Or “what on earth do you have in here?!” A woman’s basically carries around her life in her hand bag. There are so many essentials we need to take with us everywhere so I thought I would share with my very own handbag essentials! Other than the must haves such as my purse, Oyster card and doors keys, what else do I lug about with me!

I have a bottle of hand sanitiser everywhere, in my bag, on my work desk, on my home desk, everywhere. I hate getting ill so I do whatever I can to keep the germs away, especially when you are out about touching hand rails, bus poles and door handles, another reason is when you are using a bathroom and theres no hand wash! You can get little bottles of Carex hand sanitiser in various fragrances and they do not break the bank at 99p a bottle.

I am very short sighted, I can’t leave the house without either wearing my glasses or lenses. If I’m just wearing my glasses I usually just have lens wipes in my bag but I have my lenses in I have to ensure I have a lens case with fresh solution in and my glasses just in case my lenses irritate me and need to remove them. I also have a bottle of optrex eye spray to relieve any dryness.

Power pack! Being a blogger and a social media manager at work I blitz through my phone battery so quickly! So if I am out and about I have a power pack in my bag to recharge.

Re-useable straws! I am trying to be mindful of single use plastic starting with straws. I carry around my pack of re-useable straws from Essentially Eco, you get six straws in a bag with a cleaning brush, takes no time at all to clean them.

Tampons and Pads, our cycles are never reliable so it is always good to be prepared. I store mine in a cute bag sent to me from PinkParcel.


Tissues, nothing worse than randomly getting the sniffles or getting stuck in a toilet with no tissues! My mother drilled it into me that you should never leave the house without a pack of tissues.


Hairbrush and spare bands for the hair emergency!


My Sniph dispenser! I do not leave the house without it. Sniph is a monthly subscription that send you a new perfume to try every month! They do collections for both men and women.

Lastly, and the most important, my earphones! Music is life, that is all.
