5 Must-Haves for Your Handbag

Today I have decided to talk about 5 must-haves for your handbag, well this is for when you are going to work because you actually carry a handbag not a nappy bag with the things your baby will need or not.

I don’t usually carry a lot of stuff in my day to day bag. I am a pretty simple woman. Have always loved simple things and less baggage.

Lip Balm

Nobody loves dry and chapped lips that make you look like you are hungry. A simple lip balm really goes a long way. I actually make sure I never leave the house without.

Hand Lotion

Oh! Well, because all the washing of your hands after using the loo will leave your hands dry right. Also, moisturised hands don’t show your real age you get what I am saying.

Hand Sanitizer

You know those portable travel size bottles that can inside your bag. Don’t need to break the back getting expensive hand sanitizer store brand 50 ml will do. For Those days when you are out and about in the mall, lifts, and elevators.

    Please don’t. Flush wipes. They are plastic and cause sewers to block.
    If you must use plastic, bin it.

    Try putting a wipe in a glass of water … does it disintegrate to shreds like toilet paper? No. Fatberg coming up.
