I love when others share what they keep in their bags and have done these types of posts myself in the past. What I keep in my handbag varies month to month, so I thought it might be fun to share with you guys what I’ve been keeping in my handbag throughout spring!
Firstly, my handbag of choice lately has been my ‘Barb’ cross body bag* from Colab. I featured it in a fashion post quite recently (here) and have been using it nearly everyday. It’s such a perfect size and the neutral colour goes well with everything in my wardrobe. As for what’s inside:
While it has been raining a lot here lately, I like to make sure to have sunglasses with me in case the sun decides to pop up. This particular pair I bought for less than $10 at Urban Planet and I have been getting a lot of use out of them. I love that they are a bit over-sized and the fact that they’re black means they will go with everything.
BOX Naturals Lavender Towelettes*
These multi-purpose wipes can be used to freshen up after a workout, remove makeup, cleaning up messes, etc. The lavender scent is lovely and they’re individually packaged so you don’t have to worry about them drying out. The wipes are biodegradable, soothing, and refreshing, making them an essential!
Caudalie x Jason Wu Beauty Elixir*
I love face mists. This travel size fits perfectly in my handbag and is so nice to have on hand. It makes a lovely afternoon pick-me-up as it feels super refreshing on the skin but doesn’t ruin your makeup. I also find it feels really nice if I have a bad headache.
Si Eau de Parfum Rollerball
If I’m going from work, to the gym, and then out for the evening, it’s nice to be able to reapply my fragrance. Rollerballs are particularly nice because they’re small and you don’t have to worry about them leaking.
Vapour Beauty Elixir Lip Gloss in ‘Flirt’*
I tend to prefer lipstick over gloss, but I still like to keep a gloss in my bag at all times. They’re a lot easier to apply on the go and just gives your look an instant refresh. This particular one from Vapour Beauty is such a pretty shade with any makeup look and feels very comfortable.
This one is pretty obvious. I love the compact size, though. It doesn’t take up too much room in my purse but still fits all of my essentials.
While this doesn’t actually go in my handbag, I carry them together and thought I would mention it. The weather here lately has been a bit all over the place so I’ve been carrying a sweater around with me most days. It’s pretty chilly in the morning and the evening so it’s nice to have the added layer. This one in particular is from ROMWE. Embroidery has been everywhere lately and it’s definitely a fun trend for spring.
