What Every Well-Thought-Of Lady Should Keep in Her Purse AT ALL TIMES!!

What Every Well Thought of Lady Should Keep in Her Purse At All Times

Ohhh purses are so pretty!!! Clutches, handbags, over the shoulders, Mary Poppins bags, ect…  So many styles, sizes, colours, and functions!!  But as gorgeous as they can be [accessory-wise] they end up looking like black holes on the inside!!

A bottomless pit that either has a bunch of crap inside of it… OR it has all the things you COULD need- but there is SO much in there that you can’t find one single thing…

So whether you carry a nice large purse or a smaller clutch- make sure these 10 items can be found in your bag!!!

1.) MINTS– Minty fresh breath is not just important for date nights or interviews… You never know who you are going to run into at the grocery store, or how close you’ll get to someone when going over project plans at work…  Always be prepared with a stash of gum or mints to avoid coffee breath or any other sort of breath that isn’t… well, minty-fresh!!

2.)  COMPACT MIRROR–  Nothing is worse than being told you have something in your teeth and NOT having a mirror on hand so you can see where it is & GET IT OUT!!  Or try putting lipgloss on with no mirror in front of you– a bit tricky and even the pros can screw it up!!  Always keep a mirror…. To spare your pride.

3.) LIPGLOSS/ LIPSTICK/ LIP BALM–  Keeping your lips plum, soft, moisturized, and coloured is a top priority for many women.  If you wear lipstick- it is so important to keep your lips smooth so that the lipstick doesn’t clump up on your lip.  And having an array or colours and types of glosses and sticks is always a plus!!

4.)  HAIR PINS/ HAIR GRIPS/ BOBBY PINS–  Hair is always so unpredictable- as is the weather… I never take my hair-pin-box out of my purse because I always am in need of bobby pins!!  This would definitely make my TOP 5 list… 

[it’s always a bonus to get hair grips that MATCH your hair colour- these are BLONDE for my hair colour]

[in my hair-pin box I have regular hair grips as well as fancy ones for fun occasions- it’s always nice to have options]

5.)  PENS OR WRITING UTENSILS–  Regular pens as well as a few coloured pens or highlighters/Sharpies always seem to be used in my everyday life…  It’s ridiculous to be stranded without anything to write with… so just don’t let it happen to you!!

6.)  CHARGERS–  Whatever devices you keep in your purse- make sure to always have a charger on hand as well- whether an ipod or phone, it never feels good to be on your last bars of life when you know you have hours more of work to be doing.  It’s horrible when you are waiting for something, you’re listening to your iPod, it’s about to die, and you know once it does… you’re screwed!! You’re left with another 45 minutes of pure silence due to your lack of a charger!!

7.) FEMMININE PRODUCTS– Never ever want to be caught off guard without one of these on hand when you really need them…  The times that I have, oh yeah, I had to create a make-shift pad with toilet paper that I just wrapped around my underwear….  Maybe a T.M.I. but lets just say- hopefully that’ll stick with you and you’ll ALWAYS remember to have these on hand.  You will end up being your own hero- or if not you, then a hero to your fellow sister in need…

8.)  MEDICINE–  Go through your medicine cabinet and pull out samples of the basics!!  I have a mini flower shaped purse that I always keep in my bag which is for emergencies; it has 4-5 samples of Advil, Sudafed, Head-On, Excedrin, and Tums.  This way, when you are stuck in class or work and you can’t leave, but you feel like crap… just grab your medicine bag from your purse and you’re all set!!

9.)  EMERGENCY CASH–  Look, women need to make sure that they are always covered, safety-wise!!  You never want to be stranded with your cards MAXED OUT or no card at all, and in need in gas stuck out in the desert on your way to an all girls weekend.  Hey, it could happen to me- it could happen to you!!

10.)  EMERGENCY SNACK–  I’m one to have my blood sugar drop and everyone runs for cover… I’m not so pleasant to be around when I am hungry and food is no where in sight.  Having a small ziplock bag of almonds in your purse makes it so that you are not only being fed even when you can’t find food elsewhere- but you’re also being healthy!!  A win, win!!

Et c’est fin!!
