7 Handbag Essentials, Beauty and Otherwise

Everyone has those few things they can't leave the house without...hair elastics, gum, car keys! These are the permanent residents that mysteriously make our purses heavier every day. Mine:

  1. sunglasses
  2. iPod
  3. gum
  4. sidekick
  5. pen
  6. makeup
  7. hand cream!

You never know whose hand you'll be shaking that day! I avoid dry hands and fugly cuticles with L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. While it's available in a full-size tube, I love the tiny version. At only 1 oz, it fits in any bag...and, it's cute. The cream inside this little aluminum tube is rich and packed with shea butter, so it moisturizes even the scaliest of skin, but it's still light enough for year-round use. Plus, it smells good and absorbs quickly.

Mom, cousin Brittany, and some men who shall remain nameless are also fans (they remain nameless because they think hand cream is "girly"). I wish I could buy these by the case at Costco!
