Handbag Essentials

There are certain things which must be handy to us all the time as we might need them anytime. I’m listing down some most important things that must be there in your handbag all the time.
  1. Lip Balm/ Lipstick
    Our lips tend to get chapped with time as the lip balm comes off and the chapped lips don’t look good at all so a lip balm should be a staple product in our handbag. Similarly, the lipstick gets faded when we drink or eat something so we should have a lipstick for re-application so as to keep our look the same throughout the day.

  2. Comb/ Hair-brush
    Girls keep touching/caressing their hair due to which they don’t remain the way they had set them in the morning. So a hair-brush will come to the rescue.

  3. Scarf
    There might be dust at some places and it irritates the skin like anything so a scarf is required to cover ourselves at such times. Also, it acts as an extra protection from UV rays too even if the sunscreen is applied.
  4. Sunglasses
    Eyes are the most beautiful part of women and they are the most delicate too so they must not be exposed to harmful UV rays.
  5. Hand Cream
    Washing hands several times strip off the moisture from our hands making them rough and dry so always apply a hand cream to keep them soft and moisturized.
  6. Wet Tissues
    Whether it’s makeup fall-outs, sweating on face, excess oil on face, cleaning hands after eating something if provision for washing hands is not there and many other things, wet-tissues are one solution for them.
  7. Perfume
    In hot summer days, one may start sweating after sometime which may make them smell bad so to prevent that, a perfume should always be there. Preferably, keep a travel-size or pocket perfume as they are easy n light to carry as compared to big sized glass bottles.
  8. Sunscreen
    Sunscreen’s effect keeps on minimizing with time so a re-application is must to keep the delicate skin of face protected from harmful UV rays.
  9. Compact Mirror
    A mirror will always be required to see how you are looking, if there’s something messing up that needs to be corrected and then to correct those messed up things.
  10. Rosewater Spray
     Whenever you feel dull or tired, spray some rose water on the face, it refreshes the face giving it a radiant glow.
  11. Kajal
    If you use kajal, then that would also be required as it usually gets faded or smudged after sometime.
  12. Nail Clipper
    You never know when a nail gets chipped or broken so if a nail clipper is right there, then that chipped or broken nail can be uniformed right away making it look good and preventing it from further damage.
Those are some things that one should be carrying in their handbags. For any queries or feedback, please comment below and don't forget to share this post and follow Your Pink Book.

Invisible, yet an Unforgettable Accessory

"Perfume is the indispensable complement to the personality of women, the finishing touch on a dress."
- Christian Dior 

Very rightly said by C Joybell C that you are never fully dressed without a perfume. But choosing a good perfume is very challenging and we often tend to buy something which we don't like after coming back home and then regret spending so much money on them. So I'm listing down five fragrances which you'd love to use and are not gonna create a hole in your pocket.

  1. Marks and Spencer Autograph New York EDT (Price INR 999 for 25ml)
    The rich sensual feminine fragrance blends top notes of bergamot, gardenia and apricot with heart scents of damask rose, jasmine and warm woods and sensual base notes of velvety musks, creamy sandalwood, vanilla and heliotrope. An opulent fragrance to leave your skin shrouded in luxury.
    It's not a mild one but not even very strong, so if you need something that lasts long and keep you smelling fresh then this one is appropriate for you.
    Ideal for night parties, dinner dates.
  2. Marks and Spencer Autograph Blush EDT (Price INR 999 for 25ml)
    This refreshing fragrance has a fresh floral note with bergamot and cassis giving sparkle to a pretty violet accord. Water fruits and soft raspberry mingle with dewy rose in the heart which reaches into a background of warm amber, creamy vanilla and silky musks. A captivating fragrance to refresh and uplift.
    It has very mild, feminine fragrance so if you love soft feminine sort of fragrances, then this is the one for you! It's not very long lasting (the only drawback I could find in it).
    Ideal for casual day outings, office, shopping, and kind of everyday perfume. 
  3. Zara Femme EDT (Price INR 490 for 30ml)
    This one mainly has vanilla and woody notes and the fragrance lasts very long. This fragrance is very mesmerizing and you'll love to wear this. Do give this a try next time you visit any Zara store.
    Ideal for evenings and winters.
  4. Calvin Klein Euphoria Blossom EDT (Price INR 2700 approximately for 30ml)
    The fragrance is luminous and luscious like fruits notes of which are captured in it. Euphoria is mysterious and appealing like dark exotic flowers. It invites you to enjoy in joys of life. The main notes are rose hip, Japanese apple, green leaves, Lotus, black orchid, red woods, black violet and amber.
    It's a very feminine fragrance that even last long. This is quite an expensive one but you'll totally love it.
    Ideal for night parties, dinner dates, casual outings, shopping, office, and almost everywhere.
  5. Zara Rose EDT (Price INR 550 for 30ml)
    As the name suggests, it smells like english rose so it's a oriental floral fragrance. Top notes are cinnamon and cumin; middle note is jasmine; base notes are cedar and musk.
    The fragrance is like that of rose and not a very mild one. So if you love lil strong floral fragrances, then you may go for this.
    Ideal for everyday, casual outings, summers, etc.
Give these amazing fragrances a try and I'm pretty sure that you're gonna love them. For any queries or feedback, please comment below and don't forget to share this post and follow Your Pink Book.
