I am always in a rush, and sometimes forget what I actually need on me, when I’m heading out! So I’ve taken a different approach with my Blogpost today & will be talking you through the Fashion & Beauty essentials that are MUST HAVES to carry or have on you when you head out!
I’ve created this Must Have list to prevent you from over filling your bags, as a messy bag can actually make you appear unorganised!… Especially with all those old receipts piling on inside your bag.. (It can get looking like a Jungle in my bag) … So throw them out & let your bag breathe! Also Money is an essential you Have to take with you, and you wouldn’t leave your house without your Purse?… I wouldn’t and so this is not included in my Must have list, but is definitely a MUST MUST have!
However, my Must Have items don’t just refer strictly to what you need in your bag, but also on you!
So here is my 7 Fashion/ Beauty Items that you ‘MUST HAVE’ on you at All times List:
1) Your Phone & Phone Charger & Headphones
You have no idea how many times, I’ve gone out without my phone charger & then my Phone dies & I lose contact with the world for like 2-3 hours! So I always make sure I have my charger with me to prevent that from happening.
***Better yet if you have one of those portable phone charging devices, use that instead to keep your bag space empty & light!!! I’m definitely going to invest in one! & there are some really Fashionable ones out there in the Fashion world!

I would always carry my headphones around as, sometimes I get really tired of holding my phone when making a phone call & headphones definitely make life so much easier! … & are perfect when you’re on a long trip & want to relax to some music ❤
2) A Neutral Tone Lipstick & Setting Powder – with included mirror
Many of us carry 3 or 4 different shades, ranging from Reds to pinks & I sure do love my Red ( and would rock it day & night) but when you’re fighting for space in your bag – you don’t really want to carry your whole makeup bag with you instead just a few touch up items to help your makeup looking Flawless!
I would definitely carry a Nude / Pink toned Lipstick, and my current love at the moment is the Ellis Faas – Hot Lips Lipstick range as the lipsticks don’t dry up & stay on for long periods of time!

& Of course the essential of essentials is a Setting Powder – Maybe you don’t have Oily Skin & then you can eliminate this from your Must Have List! But at least 3-4 times while I’m out I get a little shiny around my T-zone region & a setting powder is great to help me look fresh & Matte instead of glowing in the wrong way haha! An included mirror with the setting powder eliminates space from having to carry an extra item!!!
I am in love with the Ellis Faas – Compact Powder in S401 – | HERE |
I will be reviewing the Ellis Faas – Compact powder in a later blogpost so please do stay tuned!
Jewellery is an important aspect of dressing, for me anyway & often when you’re in a rush, you forget to put on your Jewellery! I would always make sure to put on a statement necklace, a Chunky bracelet or a set of rings on!
*** A little styling tip: I wouldn’t maybe stack up all of my jewellery all on once, so instead if I’m trying rushing for time I’d usually (Most likely) stick to a statement necklace! It is the safest option – but yet will grab all the attention.
I’ve pictured this gorgeous Ultimate Collections – Lulu Blu Necklace as this necklace definitely is a Statement necklace piece that I am loving at the moment & depending on your comfort level you can adjust the chain of the necklace to fit according to the desirable length! I usually wear my Necklaces high up & so I’ve adjusted my chain to that high neck length!
However, I’ve also pictured this beauty at a longer length, showing you all the ways you can wear this Necklace & give you more inspiration on styling! You can definitely wear this with a casual Shirt, or even a little black dress!

5) Mints / Chewing Gum / Sanitizer & A Fragrance
I think carrying a box of Mints or Chewing gum is an important item to have on you at all times. When you’re having a long day, it really is a refreshing feeling to have something minty to eat & a little spray of fragrance on your neck & wrist to just introduce a floral & fresh scent! It really helps me, when I spray a little perfume on & carrying a miniature sized version of your favourite perfume is perfect as it will not take up too much room in your bag!
I love my classic Anna Sui – Anna Sui Parfum & this is what I usually carry with me!
I always cannot leave without some sort of Hand sanitising Gel or wipe! It’s unbelievable the amount of germs you encounter on a daily basis! The use of a hand sanitizer definitely freshens my hands up & I really wouldn’t imagine going out without it in my bag! I prefer the smell of a hand sanitizer to not be very over powering or smell of alcohol, so I am in love with my Cucumber & Garden Mint Cuticura version!

6) Umbrella & Sunglasses
Living in London, you are always faced with the possibility that it will rain and then shine brighter like a diamond within the same day! However, if you live somewhere where it is always sunny or always rainy then just carry one! I would always carry my mini Umbrella, it’s perfect because it will fit into your bag without making it heavy & always a pair of your most versatile Sunnies!
I love my
Cheap Monday – Cat Eye Sunglasses
& my Next – Mini Umbrella
7) Nude toned Nail Polish
The last step is for me mostly, because I am a perfectionist and dislike going out with naked finger nails or worse yet with chipped Nail Polish! Carrying it along gives me peace of mind & at the moment I am loving the HJ Manicure Nail Polish Range ❤ I tend to stick to nude tones as they are versatile tones and are easy to co-ordinate with all your outfits!
I have pictured the Peach Blossom Nail Polish – HJ Manicure above!
& will be talking about the HJ Manicure collection in a later blogpost!!!
