What should be in a lady’s bag

If you are a lady, you know that your purse is almost like a best friend. Therefore, there are some things that you should always carry in your purse.
If you go anywhere without that purse and when you do not have it on you, you feel like a part of you is missing.
These things are more than just an accessory, they are basically a lifeline.
And what is in that purse is pretty much essential for everyday living.
Here are fourteen things you should always carry in your purse:
A compact mirror: Always take a mirror while going out, you never know when you might need it to reapply your lipstick or to get that piece of food out from between your two front teeth.
A pocket-size hand sanitiser: Our hands come in contact with so many things each day. Whether you are handling cash or opening a door, there are germs everywhere,and most of us forget this too easily and then touch our face with our dirty hands.
Pocket-size tissues: Sneezing is the worst, especially because most of the time sneezes are like surprise attacks. You never know when the next one is coming, so always have tissues in your bag to clean up the aftermath of that surprise sneeze.
Your ID: You definitely don’t want to get caught on the road without your ID (especially if you ever happen to get pulled over.) Always make sure to check your purse for this before you go anywhere.
A portable phone charger: Portable phone chargers can feel like literal life savers in times of need. There is nothing worse than having your phone down with no way of charging it until you get back home at the end of the night.
A small snack: It is necessary and a need for a girl to also eat. Trust me, come mid-afternoon, you will be happy you threw that snack in your purse before going out.
A mini hair brush: Wind and hair is a horrible combination. And all too often, we find ourselves taking one step out the door and having our luscious locks blown all over our faces. Make sure you have a brush on hand to get everything back in order.
Pain reliever is a must: If you have ever dealt with a headache, a migraine, cramps, back pain or any other pains that we ladies have to deal with from time to time, you will be wishing you had it to help you out.
Baby wipes: Baby wipes are super gentle on skin and great for removing make-up or just giving our faces a cool refresher.
Hand lotion: You will be needing this, especially in the colder months when our hands are subjected to the single digit weather.
Gum or mints: fresh Breath is a must, and coffee breath does not smell good on anyone. So always be prepared with gum or mints on hand.
A mini make-up bag: Have a mini make-up bag in your purse to keep all your necessities in one place. It is too easy to lose that lip gloss in your sea of items swimming around that big, bottomless purse of yours.
Blotting wipes: Blotting wipes are amazing. Always be ready for your next plan of action with a clean, fresh face, especially when you do not have time to wash your face and reapply your makeup. This method will make your oily face to come back to normal.
Hair tie and bobby pins: We all know the struggle that comes along with not having a hair tie when you desperately need one. Always keep a few extra in your purse. You will be super glad you did next time you are looking for one.
