5 Most favourite handbag necessities
Especially if you have a little ones who sneezes at the most inopportune times and hands you the snot ball in your hand... It happened to Hubby who did not look before he took the "present" to discover what it was!
I have a little bag of necessities with a few headache and allergy pills in case of emergencies.
I have identified five items that I have come to depend upon that should be in that little bag of necessities at all times!
Five Handbag Necessities
You can't have too much tissues!
2. Rescue Remedy
I love having the Rescue pills or drops nearby, especially when it's a stressful time. It's also nice to have handy when Little Miss needs a bit of a pep-up. I was at a Bach blogger meetup a while ago to hear that Bach (pronunciation Batch) was the original flower remedy. I absolutely love the Bach pastilles, but we eat it like sweets! If I can't afford it (most of the time), I have a generic equivalent in the my bag. I wish I had it nearby when Little Miss was a baby and had her dyschezia issues. I'm sure it would have helped! The vet also wanted to put our angst-ridden dog who barks incessantly on anti-depressants, but suggested rescue remedy as an alternative when he saw my face (counting the cost of monthly anti-depressants for my dog!).
This cream has been a constant in our home because it works for everything! From a scratch, to a pimple, to an insect bite! Nothing that soothes a playground mishap as quickly as this! If I don't know what the red or inflamed or bump is on our skins, I use this!
4. Hand lotion
I always make sure that I have hand cream in my bag, because I have very very dry hands. I love the Rain Africa hand lotion that I got in my goodie bag at the latest Jozi Meetup. It's got a lovely fresh smell: saffron tangerine!
The Letibalm was a blogger drop just before winter this year. I am so impressed with how well it kept our lips and noses from going dry and cracked through the winter colds! I start and end the day putting it on my lips, as well as putting it on Little Miss' lips.
What are your necessities that you can't go without in your handbag?
