I don’t know about you, but I have a few things that I require to be in my handbag for when last minute things pop up. If there is one thing I have always been, it is “handbag ready”! Ask any of my friends from middle school all the way to current. It is just who I am. I am sharing today the bare basics of my Last Minute Handbag Must Haves. In case you were wondering, my handbag is the Satchel from VeraBradley.
You may wonder what I mean by last minute must haves. Have you ever been out and about and all of the sudden a friend calls you to meet up with her, her boyfriend and “that guy”, or a random client drops by for a meeting. There are certain things you will want to have on you. Maybe a quick touch-up, cream for those dry hands or a power lip! Those are the last minute must haves!
I love having a sparkly polish on me. It is the perfect thing to dress up a probably-chipping manicure. Ciate Antique Brooch is gold and rose gold glitters and perfect compliment for any other shade.
I always want a fragrance refresher before meeting up with someone so I keep Prada Candy on me. Prada Candy is a fragrance that I always layer with other fragrances because it meshes well with everything. This is a tiny bottle that is perfect for handbags.
For meetings, I want my hands to feel nice when I have that first handshake. I suffer from extremely dry hands so I have this stuff stashed everywhere. L’Occitane just came out with a hand cream gel that smells divine and really moisturizes well!
I have oily skin and I always have shine that comes out after a couple of hours. It is a necessity, no matter the occasion to touch up! I want to look luminous, but not wet and I love having my NARS Cosmetics All Day Luminous Powder Foundation!
The last two things in the cosmetics “department” are lippies. I love to have a fantastic balm AND a power lip choice. Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Fraise is amazingly perfect for a “I really didn’t have to try hard to look this good” red and the Dior Lip Glow is perfect for adding a touch of color but some serious hydration!
Other than cosmetic needs, I ALWAYS need my wallet (which essentially holds my life) and an amazing pair of sunnies. As you can see, I have a soft spot for animal print + color combined. The Vera Bradley Trifold Wallet in Leopard Spots is amazing. I would show you the innards but there is way too much information for me to be comfy with that! The sunglasses are actually $5 Walmart ones, but they are long gone as I did purchase them last year.
In case you weren’t aware, Vera Bradley has come out with an entire line of leather and faux leather handbags and wallets. I love that the brand is expanding, because… well… LOOK AT IT! Gorgeous.
