I have never liked carrying around a big handbag but I like to have the essentials with me at all times. I don't carry a wallet, only a small card holder which means more room for beauty products! Last year I treated myself to the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel East/West Cross Body Bag and I haven't used a different bag since! Even though it is a small bag, I can fit so much in it and I have been thinking about getting the lilac version for Spring/Summer.
I cant believe this all fits in my small handbag with extra room, I can even fit my iPad Mini or Kindle in my bag! I always try to keep these in my bag at all times in case of emergencies or whenever I need them. These are the products that I have been keeping in my bag recently, the only things I rotate are the lip products and the body spray but the rest are always a must in my handbag. Besides all of the beauty related products, I always keep plasters, painkillers and wet wipes in my bag because you never know when you are going to need them!
Lets start with the boring bits first. I have such long hair and as it is almost always windy in Essex it ends up in a huge knot so I have to have a hairbrush and a hairband. I would like to get one of the compact tangle teezers for my bag but I always forget to pick one up when I am in Boots. I have problematic skin so I like to make sure that my imperfections are always covered so I like to keep a pressed powder and concealer in my bag at all times. I have been loving the Makeup Revolution Pressed Powder and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for touch ups on the go. I keep a Makeup Revolution Brush in my bag which was from the Ultra Sculpt & Blend Collection as I can use it for everything!
I like to keep my hands as clean and soft as possible which is where Soap and Glory come in. I picked up mini sizes of the Hand Maid Hand Cleansing Gel and the Hand Food Hand Cream to keep my hands germ free and moisturised on the go and of course, like all Soap and Glory products they smell incredible! My lips are always so dry so I try to only keep products that will keep my lips hydrated but also give them a hint of colour. I have been loving the Dior Lip Glow in Lilac and the Lancôme Juicy Shaker in Cherry Symphony recently. Having two completely different shades means I can switch up my makeup look easily and keep my lips glossy and soft. The final item in my handbag is the Body Fantasies Body Spray in Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy. Nobody wants to stink to they?
