When my boyfriend and I first started dating, he was bewildered by the contents of my handbag. I had everything from lipgloss to 3-D glasses to a toothbrush to a Michelangelo Ninja Turtle action figure. I was like a boyscout, ready for anything. My bag weighed about a ton, but I had everything I needed.
Every girl should have a few certain essentials in her bag (Okay, maybe you don’t need the 3-D glasses, but they did come in handy one Saturday morning while watching I Love the 80′s). Here’s a list of some items that should be stashed in your bag:
Of course having a bag that can house all of your emergency goodies is half the battle. The best (most functional) bag I have ever owned is my Elezar Morgan Bag. It has plenty of pockets and nooks and crannies to store everything. It is also large enough to carry a laptop in! (Oh, and it’s really freaking cute).
These items are small so they shouldn’t make your bag too heavy. Remember to clean out your bag every once in a while to get rid of any unnecessary junk you’ve accumulated. And hey, a heavy bag is like an extra workout. Just switch shoulders from time to time in order to avoid getting a wonky gangsta lean.
