Thank you, UbyKotex, for making this post possible!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t go ANYWHERE without bringing along my entire life in my handbag. I recently bought a smaller handbag, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Natasha, and I have found that I really needed to edit down what I put IN my handbag. This bag is prime real estate, so the things that go in it really need to hold their weight and perform for my everyday life. Today I am showing you my Fall Handbag Must Haves which include everything from my unsung heroes to a trendy lipgloss!
Straight away I am going to share with you my favorite feature of the bag, the hidden compartment. The flap of this handbag actually unzips to reveal a very large, very deep pocket. This pocket is where I hide the embarrassing things I don’t want my toddling daughter to pull out in the middle of crowd. That includes my UbyKotex pads, tampons and even my Secret Clinical Strength deodorant. Even if my daughter did happen to figure out that flap, I am glad that the packaging on the pads and tampons doesn’t give them away immediately.
In the Fall, I tend to wear a few layers. I live in Florida so the early mornings can be cool and brisk but by midday I could be in the upper 90s and sweating. I want to be prepared, so I keep the Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel deodorant in my bag. It may be “weird” or “gross”, but it would be much worse if I were left WITHOUT it!
A fabulous wallet is another thing that is oh so necessary. Vera Bradley has a brand new line that is out. It includes leather and faux leather handbags and wallets. This animal print, tri-fold wallet is perfection! It has a ton of slots for all of my loyalty cards, etc and tons of pockets for cash or coupons.
I can’t call myself a beauty blogger and not include some cosmetics in my “must haves” so here they go. I absolutely need a good hand cream. I suffer from dry hands and this Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream is fantastic—so luxe. Having a beautiful berry toned lipgloss from Covergirl is the perfect pick me up item! I also NEED a nice powder in my handbag and I have been loving the new NARS Cosmetics All Day Luminous Powder Foundation!
To round off my perfect Fall Handbag Must Haves list I am down to the miscellaneous items. I love keeping a small bottle of Jo Malone perfume. I always want a quick spray when I am going into a store or meeting a friend for lunch! Also, I have fall allergies and my eyes always need drops. I have been keeping the Rohto Cool drops with me. I also find that my hair starts getting a little ragged throughout the day lately and it drives me insane, so I keep a few hair do-dads to tame the beast!
Another thing I have been keeping in my bag are these Kleenex Slim Packs. Again, allergies always kick my butt this time of year and I need to do everything from blow my nose to pat away my watery eyes. You can get a free pack of these attached to select UbyKotex products right now at Walmart (while supplies last)!
