We thought we would share with you what we carry in our bag day to day, as at Nelle we have to admit we are so nosey as to what other people carry in theirs. Especially those girlies who always look so put together throughout the day, what the heck are they hiding in their bags? A portable MUA?

As we always say preparation is key, there will be no beauty or fashion emergencies happening on our watch. Technically the more essenitals in your bag the longer you can be out for. It's girl math.

Do we make sure our bags are always prepared for any emergency? Yes. Does this emergency ever happen? No! However it’s become our pride & joy at this point, let us live.

Below you find our handbag essentials, which you will always find in our bag unless it's an evening when the Mirco bags come out, which as we know fitting a lipstick in there would be pushing the boat out. 

Be warned you will become the new go-to in any form of beauty, or tech-related emergency.

& for those single girls, we got you. Don’t worry we aren’t about to tell you to always carry a thong at all times in case just the essentials to look fresh AF!

Lets start with our beauty products which you find inside our makeup bag.
