As summer finally makes its way to the UK (yay!), it’s time for me to start packing my handbag a bit differently. Here is a low down of the essential items I keep in my handbag on a summer’s day in the UK, where weather is unpredictable. I’m quite a low maintenance chick, so this list includes practical items to help combat the weather, rather than products that other women choose to take.
- Bottled water
I usually carry water with me regardless, but I make sure to take plenty when the weather’s warm to keep hydrated.
- Wet wipes
There’s nothing nice about sweating it out on a bus, so having a little pack of wet wipes is good for wiping your forehead, palms or other places.
Another great item for keeping cool when the temperature gets high.
Eye protection is always good for bright days.
- Imperishable snacks
Raisins, apples and granola bars survive the heat without going mushy or melted.
If I’m wearing my hair down, I’ll have a hair band on standby to tie up the ‘mop’.
Because rain is always a possibility!
- Light jacket/scarf
As with above, the weather can get cooler so take a jacket/cardi just in case
If you’re wondering how all these items fit into a handbag, there is no simple explanation as to how…they just do!
