We women have the ability to carry the entire universe in our handbags. It
sometimes baffles me at the kind of things I pull out, when I sit to clean my
handbag. All sorts of essentials and inessentials start popping out of the
handbags, shopping bills, ATM receipts, prescriptions, visiting cards, lip balm,
sanitizer, coins, hair clips, tissues and the list just goes on. We just love stuffing
our bags with almost everything that we lay our hands on. This is what got me
thinking of what are the 10 must have essentials that every girl’s handbag must
Fun Fact: * I sat down and dumped all the contents of my bag on my bed and I
must admit it was a tough task to compile a list of 10 must have essentials from
a bunch of items in my bag!
So here are the 10 things, which I feel is a must have for all genre of women, be
it a workaholic, a shopping freak or a carefree teenager.
Here go’s the list
1)Pepper Spray: This tops my priority list and is a must have have in
every girls handbag. With the rising number of cases of women assault in
our country in recent times, pepper spray is a given for every girl’s
self-defense & security.
2)Hand Sanitizer: This is another essential that tops my list, especially if
you’re a person who travels by public transport; this is sure shot remedy
to keep yourself germs free!
3)Wallet: Well, shopping and all our needs would be impossible without a
money wallet. It’s a very obvious essential, but I’m just stressing on the
fact that without a money wallet, stepping out of our house would be
4) Pen: To note down “things to do” or any other important information
during the day.
5)Post It: From pens we move to paper, and post it’s are just perfect and
colorful to note down all those details. It comes handy if you want to jot
down a list or quickly note a phone number, or want to remember
6)Tampons/Pads: Always have one or two tampons/pads in one of the
small zipper section of your handbag. Not only these help in an
emergency situation, but also helps you give it to someone who is in dire
need of it.
7)Makeup Compact: A small compact powder will keep you fresh all day.
With the crazy pollution and weather, this surely comes handy to make
you look “fresh like a Lilly”. It’s advisable to have a compact with a
mirror so you need not carry one separately.
8)Lip Balm: I’m sure that this goes without mentioning and you girls must
be carrying at least one in your handbag (I carry two). Lip balms do the
magic! Not only do they moisturize and hydrate your lips but add a touch
of glam and glow to your face.
9)Perfume Testers: Carry those small tester perfume that you get as
freebies in your bag. Sprinkle a few sprays just before reaching your
all-important occasion and you’re ready to work your charm with that
10)Mint Chewing Gums / Mouth Freshener: Talking about fragrances,
how can we ignore “Bad Breath”. OH! It’s a major put off if your mouth
stinks! Keep a pack of mint, chewing gum or any other mouth freshener
to keep that bad breath away. Also, you can pop one after a meal, as you
surely don’t want your friends to know what you ate for lunch!
So, here’s my list! If you girls have any more must-have items in your bag
suggestions, then please go ahead and mention in the comments section below, I
would be happy to add it to my list!
