Back in August I shared with you all the contents of my handbag (check it out here) which included some fab products that are essentials in my daily life. However now the colder months are upon us changing up your handbag to suit this is always a win. It feels like I’m giving my bag a handbag detox in a way, feels slightly therapeutic! So here are my handbag must-haves which will help me survive whatever the winter months may throw at me!
I’m still using the same handbag from Very. I just absolutely adore this bag, its the perfect size to store everything I need and just goes with everything I wear.
One of the main essentials is my phone charger. Cannot go anywhere without it! As I said in my previous handbag post IPhone batteries tend not to last past a few hours and I use my phone a lot. So keeping this in my bag at all times means I feel slightly safe knowing if I can find a plug I’ll have a decent battery life throughout the whole day.
The cold is harsh on the skin so on days I decide not to wear make up I always carry a moisturiser. The one I’ve been using religiously is the Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2 in 1 Moisturiser and Serum and its the perfect moisturiser for my skin. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and looking radiant and it lasts most of the day. One of the great things about this moisturiser/serum is you can use it as a face primer before applying make up!
Still using the same hand cream, so no need to mention that again haha.
I seem to catch 256 colds during the colder months so tissues are a huge staple in my bag. There’s nothing worse than walking around with a runny nose and having nothing to get rid of it, most toilets have toilet paper or paper towels with such a hard consistency that it irritates your nose even more! So if you are like me, always remember the tissues!
I seem to be obsessed with mascara lately even without a full face of make up and obviously my beloved Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is getting a mention (also featured in my July favourites). This makes my lashes look so full and long, its absolutely amazing! Won’t go too much into it, I mention it way too much.
I always go everywhere with my deodorant and I usually use whatever one is on offer but these past couple of weeks I’ve changed up my perfume game and been absolutely loving my bottle of Truth by Calvin Klein. It has notes of bamboo, vanilla, wet woods, white peony, white amber and sandalwood. It is a summer smell but because I was using my Zoella Beauty one way too much I had to change it up a bit.
Because I’ve been trying to keep up with my blogging game my notebook/diary has been living in my handbag. Whenever I get an idea for a blog post or just need to write a date down at least I know I can just pop it in here instead of a piece of paper which I can guarantee will get lost by the end of the day.
Other essentials include a purse, hair brush, tampons, bobbles, kirby grips and lately I’ve been carrying a bottle of water around with me, I don’t drink near enough water on a daily basis so been trying to drink a lot more than the usual 1 sip.
And that’s everything! Got an essential you cannot live without? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time,
