Wallet, lipstick, hair ties, perfume, and sunglasses some some of my handbag necessities! As an addition to my last blog about handbags, I have included the essentials every girl needs in her purse.
The most important thing in everyone’s purse is their wallet. I prefer a smaller wallet because it fits in all bag sizes, and my wallet from Kate Spade fits just what is needed! Accordion style wallets are always on trend, and this Kate Spade wallet reminds me of the Gucci wallets for a much more affordable price.
I can’t leave the house without a lip gloss, lipstick, or lip balm. After much trial and error of new lip products, I have always returned to this Neutrogena lip soother. It has SPF 20, which is perfect for the spring season, and it looks like a lip gloss! The shade I use is ‘Glaze 60’ because it is the most natural to my my lip color. You can never go wrong with Burts Bees lip balms, and the Pomegranate two pack is perfect just in case you lose one:)
Hand lotion & Hand Sanitizer
I am definitely a germaphobe, and need hand sanitizer wherever I go! Bath and Body Works has the perfect size hand sanitizers, and they smell amazing. My personal favorite scent is Japanese Cherry Blossom. Because I probably use too much hand sanitizer, my hands are almost always dry, so I have use the Bath and Body Works Stress Relief hand lotion. The scent is subtle, and the lotion doesn’t make your hands feel tacky, which is what I love most about it! The Aveda Hand Relief smells amazing as well and makes your hands feel smooth.
My hair gets knotted so easily that I always bring a hairbrush wherever I go. This compact hairbrush is perfect to throw in your purse and it even has a mirror – so convenient! You never know when you need to put your hair in a ponytail or messy bun, so I come prepared with scrunchies or a classic hairtie. Scrunchies are a huge trend right now, and you can buy these cuties anywhere! Plus, you can put it around your wrist as a bracelet to compliment your outfit.
Sunnies are always a necessity! It’s important to protect your eyes from the suns harmful UV rays, so make sure you don’t leave the house without them! Although they can get pricey, the spring and summer seasons are here and sunglasses are a practical accessory. Tortoise shell sunglasses are stylish, and I found this adorable and affordable pair on Abercrombie. Everything Ralph Lauren is high quality, and this pair of sunglasses is on the top of my wishlist at the moment! You can get sunglasses almost anywhere, but I have found some adorable pairs at Nordstrom, Target, Macy’s, Forever 21, and H&M.
I love Jo Malone candles and recently discovered their fragrances. Their new line are perfect scents for spring and summer! If you need more fragrance recommendations, check out my blog post on my must have scents in rollerball size and spray bottle size.
