Some Things I Carry in my Handbag || WHATS IN MY BAG

Hi Guys! Thank you for stopping by. If you're in the homepage peeping this post, you might as well come right in sugar. My handbag is usually prepared the night before I go out. By prepare, I mean I make a mental note of the next day, and line up all I'll be needing before assembling the necessary stuff into my bag. This method helps me not to forget key priorities like my identity card especially if I'm changing bags.

The things I'm about to reveal to you are stuff you'd always find in my bag regardless of what size of bag I'm carrying, or where I'm going.



a. My Cards:
My National Youth Service(NYSC) ID Card is ALWAYS with me. Ever since I moved, I have found that thing very valuable. Also, my office ID card is in my bag on weekdays. I also carry my physician's complimentary card with me because you never know.


b. Petite Vaseline or Moisturiser Bottle:
I keep a pint sized bottle of original petroleum jelly or my favourite moisturiser in my bag because I hate white/dry feet, it's a God forbid for me. I apply this to my hands as well whenever I feel they are dry.



c. Notepad and Pen:
Because I love to jot pop up ideas/solutions, and plan ahead.



d. Charger and Keys:
Yep! I don't leave my keys under the carpet. And, I don't have a good powerbank yet. My old one partially damaged my phone so I carry my super-fast charger around. If you live in Abuja and need a super-fast charger hit me up, I can hook you up.



e. Trident Bubblegum in Mint or Strawberry Flavour:
Just in case. The struggle for consistent fresh breath is real y'all.



f. Brown Powder and Lipgloss:
Recently, I started carrying my Sleek Pressed Translucent powder with me for touchups. I have a phobia for carrying loose powder in my handbag so I leave it at home and take this pressed one.
I use matte lipsticks most of the time. I carry my lipgloss along just in case my lips start to feel a bit too dry.

I guess the key essence of this post is to share how I avoid forgetting necessary stuff whenever I change bags.


How do you prepare ahead? And, yes I'm going to ask, what are the key things you don't leave out of your bag every day? You can share them with me by commenting :)

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss
