Handbags speak louder than words – Gigi New York

Love it or hate it, handbags make an appearance in what we wear daily. To avoid backache and shoulder pain it is best to go around with the essentials. These 8 essentials will help lessen the stress that comes with carrying a bag and you shouldn’t go out without them.

Safety pins:

They are lifesavers, basically! You never know when your buttons might come off. They come to the rescue when we need a quick fix.

Zippered Pouches:

People get nosey and we don’t want them filtering our personal items, that is why we need the zippered pouches. You might want to have 2 zippered pouches in your bag; one for your notepad, iPad and pen while the others can store your makeup items. Zippered pouches will make your bag look neat and organised, if you don’t own one go get one.

Hand sanitizer:

It’s no hidden fact that we come in contact with germs easily. To avoid the harmful effects of these germs, you need a hand sanitizer to sit comfortably in your bag.

Power Banks:

You really want to add this to your bag essentials, don’t we all hate it when our phone goes? I’m sure I’m not the only one who hates it. Moreover, a phone is every girl’s best friend. You need it charged and on always.

Breath Freshner

Remember when we don’t talk for a long time we are likely to have stale breath and bad breath is a turnoff in any situation. Always keep mints or gum in your purse.

Blotting Papers:

These absorbent sheets are an elegant way to wipe away excess shine, oil, or even sweat on your brow, cheeks, and upper lip.  Get them in your bag now! We all want to be elegant.

Sun Glasses:

They provide you with UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays and they add a bit of class and elegance to your outfit. That should give you a reason to put them in your bag already.


Life is full of unexpected moments, we need the tissue for a lot of things; from cleaning up the mess, to wiping off a running nose. With a tissue in hand (or in your purse) you are one step ready for the unexpected moments life brings your way.
