These are a few of the items that you will always find in my handbag. My essentials and items that I think all us ladies should carry and heres why...

Soap and Glory Hand Maid:
So often I find myself wanting to wash my hands with no where to do it and this is why I always carry a hand sanitiser. However, it might just be me but i cant stand the smells of most that you can find on the market. That was until I discovered SAG Hand Maid. It has that we all know and love and is a refreshing change from the alcohol and cucumber scents that I hate.

Soap and Glory Hand Food:
I have mentioned this product before and I don't want you to get bored of me so I'll keep this short and sweet. If you haven't tried this yet...what are you doing? £2.50 isn't a lot to ask and it is hands down (excuse the pun) the best day time hand cream i have used and to top it off it has a smell to match Hand Maid so you smell twice as sweet when using this perfect combination.

Witch Anti-blemish Pressed Powder:
This has fast become my favourite pressed powder. Since summer is on its way I have been trying to minimise the make-up I use and a bit of collection concealer (we all know the one) and this powder is doing a great job. This has been my go too replacement for foundation and I carry it everywhere. I'm not sure about its anti-blemish properties but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm:
Carmex has always been my favourite lip balm but I hated the cherry. I just cant stand cherry flavours and smells. But when I found the strawberry version I thought my prayers had been answered. This is my lifesaver when my lips get that little bit too dry. 

Extra Gum:
Smelly breath lifesaver- enough said. The worst thing in the world is having bad breath without any way to rectify the issue. Which is why I carry gum at all times.

Anadin Extra:
A headache is bad enough but being far far away from anywhere to pick up a pain killer is well...a killer. So having a pack of pain relief is an essential in any hand bag.

Ipod:
On a crowded bus, a busy train or a long commute an Ipod is my number one essential. I like many others am one of those people who think music can change your mood completely and the Ipod is the best way to get e out of any bad mood the day might throw at me! Bad grade at uni or a difficult customer at work and all I need is a quick blast of my favourite song to chill me out completely.


- And obviously don't forget your purse and keys.
