Women and their bags. Sorry caverns. Sorry Swiss vaults.
There’s something special about a woman’s bond with her bags. They’re usually stuffed to the brim with all sorts of paraphernalia. Some of it is useful, the rest is well…the rest.
The bag becomes doubly important when you’re embarking on a nightly excursion across the cityscape. With half a MAC store worth of makeup filled in, amongst other things—you can be rest assured almost every base is covered.
Or is it?
We’ve put together a small list of things that girls often forget, but could be potential lifesavers! One shade of lipstick less should be just fine.
Coffee and tea can pep you up, but also bring you down twice as fast if they streak themselves across your new Zara crème top. Sure you’ll run to the loo and maybe get it out within the first 30 seconds. But what if you’re not around water? Invest in a good stain-eraser pen and keep it handy! You may have to order a good one internationally—but even if it saves one top, you’re sorted!
If you work in the corporate sector–you probably have a version of this (or your wallet). But it’s probably drab, black with a bit of cheap metal. But you know, they make great cardholders just for women. Bright colors, kitschy designs and something that means business—but without looking like your boss handed it to you. Have your own business? Get something that matches your branding!
They’re as easy to find as candy these days! Every chemist worth their weight in salt will have two to three brands of this potent stuff. Keep one handy and practice how to use it. Also if you’ve kids around. Make sure this stays away. It’s pure napalm, but hey—that’s exactly the kind of pain you want to carry around for miscreants!
You can rest easy and skip the overnight toothpaste trick. That stuff is nasty. Thermaclear lets you deliver a sharp 2-second heat pulse on those godawful red pimples and makes them disappear in 24 hours! Emergency beauty regime and how! You’ll have to mostly order it internationally but a few Chinese variants are sold in Indian metros!
Mini Massage Cushion
These have got so small, they can fit in most bags (assuming you like to carry around corpses in your existing one). There’s nothing more luxurious when getting squashed in the train or tending to a sore bottom in a long bus ride. But you’d do well to not sleep off. We don’t guarantee it’ll still be there. You’ll be eyed by those women around you—looking to snag your plushy piece of pressure nirvana.
So what about your bags? Did we miss anything? What curios and gadgets do you carry that other women aren’t? Let’s make a long list ladies!
