4 handbag must haves

review swatch photo

I don’t often take beauty bits out with me when I do things. I very rarely touch up my makeup beyond a dab of powder once I leave the house so I tend to keep my beauty bits to a minimum. None the less there are 4 products I keep on hand at all times for those times when I need a jujj, refresh and a bit of TLC.

Compeed Plasters
For the times that you fabulous new shoes are just that little bit too tight for you. I’ve been caught out way too many times over LFW so keeping a pack of plasters within easy reach is a must. These Compeed ones provide instant pain relief by creating a protective cushion between the shoe and your heel.

Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish 
A travel sized can of my favourite texture spray is perfect for giving my hair that extra oomph it needs throughout the day. One blast of this into my roots and a good ruffle later my hair is boosted and big.

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Compact On shine control duty I have my favourite powder. Great for touch up’s on the go as it adds a little bit of coverage while dulling any shine down.

Viva La Juicy Rollerball Perfume 
Rollerball perfume is a new addition to my beauty bag and I’m loving them. Slimline and perfect for popping into bags of all sizes. Viva La Juicy is bright, uplifting and girly and one of my favourite scents.


  1. Great post. I really need to try the Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish. My hair looks so dire half way through the day. So that just might save it.


  2. Rollerball perfumes are SO practical! Much better than carting a fragile bottle about! :)

  3. My favourite rollerball perfume smashed in my bag! Such a bummer, but at least my bag now smells inrediable!

  4. that's a good point girls, roller perfumes are so much more practice maybe I should invest on some!

  5. Rollerball perfumes are amazing!

  6. I've always wanted to try the Laura Mercier face powder! I love rollerball perfumes as they are just perfect for on the go!

  8. Great article, I really want to try the Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish!

  9. Always need a pair of compeeds. They are life savers!

  10. I literally swear by the Compeed plasters, once I had a pair rub my feet so bad they rubbed through a brand new Compeed blister plaster! Not cute

  11. I made the mistake of not keeping plasters in my bag yesterday and I'm paying for it! I want to carry around a roller ball so badly, but there aren't really a thing where I live.

  12. I always have to have some compeed blister patches in my bag even when wearing flats, you can never be too careful. I've always carried around a massive bottle of perfume with me and wondered why I've never just invested in a rollerball, I think now is the time.
