Continuing with my back to school idea I thought I’d do a mini post on bag essentials, those go to items or essentials that should be in your bag for every occasion/situation. This will be more of a school/collage/university orientated post.
♥ Bird Bottle: Paperchase £6.00 ♥ Hand Gel (Grapefruit): The Body Shop £2.50 ♥ Baby Lips Lip Balm: Superdrug £2.99 ♥ Nurofen: £2.09 from all pharmacies and supermarkets ♥ Bobby Pins: Amazon £2.29 for 250 ♥ Cath Kidson Compact: John Lewis £8.00 ♥ Hello Kitty Tissues: Tesco £1.30 ♥ Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Summer Bloom: The Perfume Shop £9.99 ♥ JVC Gummy Headphones: Argos £7.99 ♥ Wrigley Extra Gum: Everywhere ♥
Refillable Bottle: It’s important to stay hydrated and by taking your own bottle you save on forking out for expensive bottled drinks, just refill it in the morning with whatever you want and enjoy for the rest of the day. In the winter months why not take a flask with coffee in.
Hand Gel: For those times when you want clean hands but aren’t near the bathroom so whenever you want to eat or you’ve touched something you rather not hand gel is ideal to have in your bag. They are everywhere these days in a variety of scents I just think the body shop ones smell amazing and work really well. I especially love these when I’m travelling or have popped into London for the day.
Lip Balm: There are loads of great lip balms on the market at the moment from Barry M’s Cor Balmy to Maybelline Baby lips, so you can pick a scent, colour and texture you prefer. Keep your lips perfect, especially in the colder months when your lips are more likely to get chapped.
Painkillers: You’ll always need them when you don’t have them. Headache, tooth ache, women problems no matter what they’ll be in your bag when you need them.
Bobby Pins: Fix a bad hair day or numerous problems with a simple bobby pin, essentially a girls best friend . . . if only we knew where they all went?
Compact Mirror: Check your looking okay on the go and say goodbye to been paranoid. If you take your make up with you this may not be essential if one of your make up compacts already includes one.
Perfume: Keep yourself smelling fresh after PE (if your at school), or in general throughout the day and pop a perfume in your bag either a body spray, roll on perfume or decanter some of your favourite perfume out.
Headphones: Escape the world for some much needing down time, always pack your headphones.
Gum/Mints: With loads of yummy foods that make you have bad breath having gum in your bag is always a must. I prefer the tubs as they last longer and are way easier to find in your bag.
What are your hand bag essentials?
