Handbag Essentials for Fall 2015: 5 Things You Need in Your Bag This Fall

Depending on where you live the seasons may be turning which means a drop in temperature, the changing of the color of leaves, and increased rain fall. Did i mention dry air? Here are something I always keep in my handbag during Fall.

Yes, fall can be very pretty but that does not mean you can neglect to prepare for winter. Here are five things you NEED to keep in your bag this fall to preserve and nurture yourself.

Fall Bag Accessories

Lip Balm

SoftLips Lip Balm

First of all, and unsurprisingly because you should ALWAYS keep this in your handbag no matter the season, is lip balm. Fall means cold and dry air which can chap your lips. My favorite lip balm is Softlips, they have many different flavors that smell amazing and will keep your lips soft.

If you prefer not to buy a lip balm and would rather go th natural route try rubbing a small amount of coconut oil on your lips. Nowadays its seems like you can get coconut oil everywhere: grocery stores, health food stores, Marshalls even! Just make sure to get the extra virgin and unrefined kind!

Hand Lotion

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Lotion

Cold air means chapped lips and dry skin, stay moisturized by carrying a travel sized lotion. Some of my trused lotion carriers are: L’Occitane, Korres, Lavanilla. Again, if you prefer to go the ultra-natural route, coconut oil also doubles up as a body moisturizer.

You can use coconut oil for a variety of different reasons. This fall, try rubbing a small amount of coconut oil on your major area dry spots such as: knuckles, elbows, and knees.

Nail Clippers and Compact Mirror

This third item may seem unconventional but there are no substitutes for this item:nail clippers. There are so many pretty nail colors to wear for fall check out my blog post: Nail Polishes To Wear This Fall.

While you are trying to grow out nails there is a possibility you might get a break and nothing is more frustrating that uneven nails. Make the nail-breaking struggle easier on yourself by carrying travel sized nail clippers in your bag this fall.


Maccosmetics Rebel Lipstick

Your favorite dark lipstick. Take advantage of the coming season of fall to sport a dark lip. There are many different dark lip alternatives you can choose from, whether its redd, purple, or brown, check out my blog post: Top Ten Dark Lipstick for Fall.

Peanut Butter Cups

This last one might come a shock but once you try it out you will see how necessary it is: peanut butte cups (or our favorite craving). I’m not sure why, but during fall I crave peanut butter cups like nothing else.

Despite some of the negative things of fall, i.e., cold weather=dry skin, there are truly amazing aspects of fall, enjoy them. Check out my blog post: 5 Things To Do This Fall.
