in Beauty Banter, Features

I carry extremely little…my brothers keep making fun of me of how im not a girl because i never have wet wipes or tissues in my bag or safety pins and stuff like that :p . I carry  a hand sanitiser, a lipgloss(Right now i have two- revlon papaya which is a staple and mac cremesheen in floating lotus), my keys , my wallet, sunglasses and thats about it. Theres a lot of junk in there always because of receipts and paper but valuable stuff is pretty rare

I keep a small vanity kit which has a mascara, kajal, lip balm, make up remover, eye liner, cotton… then I have my sunglasses, nail polish remover, a red nail polish, moisturiser, hand sanitizer, safety pins, a pack of tissues, double mint chewing gum, a small mirror and fevi quick apart from the usual cards and cash. And yes, mostly it also has the novel I am reading. Currently there is Vikram Seth’s ‘A Suitable Boy’… I guess my handbag must weigh around 3-4 kgs! Lol! :D

You know, most of the time I don’t carry a bag at all! Which is why you’ll find almost everything in my car or on me. Money in one pocket. Lipbalm/ gloss in the other/. A packet of the sanitizer covered single tissue in my back pocket that makes a noise when I sit, but I roll with it. Gum/ mint in my mouth, Sunglasses on my head/ face. phone- hand.
When I do carry a bag, there’s my wallet with the license, id, club membership, money and cards. Always 3 of the club’s library cards (I’m ancient. yes) Passport size photos (never know when you’d need them) Sanitizer, Lipstick/gloss, small bottle of perfume (usually EA Green tea the small one or TBS body mists/ love etc( sturdy bottle, wont break and even if it does, it’s quite inexpensive) bandaid (because I always need one!) & mint. Phone in hand and sunglasses on my head still. Ya, that’s about it. So of all the girly things, only lipstick and perfume! and sanitary napkins (around the time) :P
