Handbags: Their Importance & Why You Should Carry Them

Many ladies love to go out on shopping trips with their family, drink coffee with their friends or grab a bite with their significant other. It is a lovely thing to do when you are tired from the whole day’s work and all that you want to do is just relax. These 3 types of relaxation techniques are awesome. Women find themselves in complete ease with their family, boyfriend or friends. But one thing that always hinders their plans of going out is how to dress. That is probably the biggest hassle any lady can face in her life. What should I wear? But a problem that is even bigger than that, is whether they should consider handbags as an option?

  • Handbags and Their Importance

Of course you should take a handbag with you everywhere you go. Where will you keep your money? Your phone? Maybe you need to write down something quickly and need a pen & paper. What about if you want to give someone your professional business card? When it comes to teenagers and young girls, you guys do not HAVE to carry a handbag with you everywhere you go. But business women and elderly ladies must. It comes off as a sign of elegance and professionalism.

  • Which Type of Handbags Do I Carry

Depending on how you dressed for the outing you can carry a handbag accordingly. Some examples would be:

– If you dressed up casually with skinny jeans and a shirt/cardigan then a small or tote handbag would do.

– Dressed up sophisticated? A posh handbag from a designer brand will do.

You can get an idea by now that depending on your outfit of the day you can choose a bag selectively. If you have a shortage of bags in your wardrobe you can search up for online stores that currently have sales on bags.

  • Is It Okay to Merge Opposite Colors in Handbags?

Many women find this a great hurdle in their daily life. Is it okay to wear yellow with purple? What about purple with grey? Or black with blue? Listen ladies, opposite colors always match. And if they don’t you are technically making a bold fashion statement by wearing those eye catching colors. Do not hesitate in throwing together different colors and making an interesting outfit. It is always fun to explore new realms of fashion and finding your signature style by trying and seeing what suits you most. Or what you love best!

  • Handbags or Clutches?

Clutches may seem like they are more elegant and you see all those pop stars holding them on the Red Carpet. But if you are going out on a dinner date and/or out in the city, clutches are not your best option. Yea maybe they work for popstars on the Red Carpet who are flanked with bodyguards who carry for them everything. So it is always a good idea that you carry with you a handbag with a handle for you can sling it on the back of your chair or keep it loosely on our shoulder. Everything works! And you will definitely notice and be aware if anything happens to it.

Everything Happens, Happens For a Reason

Have you ever encountered some sort of trouble that you asked yourself why this is happening?

Mishaps aren’t always a curse. What you gained or what you acquired is an outcome of experience that caused your suffering. If you are wise enough to connect the dots and link things up you will come up with a conclusion if not you’ll come up with the disappointment. It’s always better to question everything, have a foresight and see how the circumstances are likely to impact you positively or negatively

When things are tangled up suddenly

On my first visit to London, I was landing in Heathrow airport and all of a sudden I heard an announcement that we will be landing in Charles de Gaulle Paris due to the unexpected weather conditions. I was like OMG what am I going to do in Paris I already don’t know anyone in London so what am I going to do in Paris?
I was a bit nervous about my travel to London and my college was starting the next day right after my arrival. We spent a couple of nights in the hotel and then the situation got worse we still couldn’t fly to London, we had to take the bus to Calais and from Calais, we had to take the ferry boat to Dover.

I didn’t think of this as a good omen. I told myself that must have been the worst thing that could ever happen. On that bizarre trip I met an acquaintance he was going to visit his sister in London, we had a bit of a conversation and  a drink on the boat deck, we were freezing to death in when we reached Paris, the entire city was covered in snow that I can hardly recall how it looked like.  We exchanged numbers then we went our separate ways.

The harder you hustle, the farther you reach

Next day in the morning, the first day in college and I’m already behind schedule. I introduced myself to the tutor; he asked why I missed the previous classes so I explained my story. He gave me tons of assignments to finish in a very narrow time in order to catch up with the rest of my fellow students.

With all this going on in the first week, it was more of a turn-off, London wasn’t really welcoming and nothing went as planned, I even had to pay for the few days of accommodation that I booked online but did not use. I never assumed that I’d spend few days in France before arriving in England. Later on, after a few fortnights, I posted on Facebook that I’m struggling to find a job in London, many people tried to help me out and referred me to other people they know.

I kept calling the numbers I was given, turned up for  few interviews but could hardly pass any because I don’t have a ‘’UK experience’’. I started to give up on finding a job that I decided to take a cash-in-hand job for less than the minimum wage. The fact that I was a student, only allowed to work part-time and have no experience made this task almost impossible.

Connecting the dots will lead you somewhere

A while later, it was the birthday of the guy that I met on the ferry boat, I sent him on Facebook, we had a little chit-chat, he asked if all is good. I explained to him how hard it is to find a job in London. No sooner had we finished our chat than I received a text, a very well-known employer in the catering industry was hiring massively if you have 1-2 years of experience.

That’s good but still I don’t have the UK experience, the thing that will definitely keep me from getting the job. I ignored the text as obviously if I go for an interview they can easily find out that my experience has nothing to do with catering, back then I was into sales, so no common ground at all.

I took my phone to adjust my alarm then I noticed the boat guy dropped me an offline message. He said ‘’fake it till you make it’’, I know you don’t know anything about catering but I’ll sort you out to get this job, it’s not as hard as you think. I quickly realized that he talked to the employer about me, the text was sort of reassuring to me, it cheered me up and gave me hope, although I don’t know anything about the job I’m approaching but a little bit of hope was better than nothing.

In the next few days, I was able to arrange a meeting with a head chef who was a friend of the boat guy. The chef took me through every single part of the catering job, he even took me to the kitchen. Within 1 week exactly I turned up for the interview as a ‘’sous chef’’.

Moral of the story

The chain of events that took place one after the other can clearly deliver a message. If you are patient enough to see what life has to unleash, then you will definitely unlock new features in your personality. I was never about to find a job if I hadn’t met this guy. Maybe I missed few days in college and had a pile of work to do because of what happened. However, the job was sort of imperative for me as I couldn’t live on my own spending.

I always regarded life as a computer game. You can’t proceed to the next level until you accomplish the current mission. It might feel boring and time-consuming but it’s inevitable. The Same rule applies to our daily life, the more you hustle and pursue what you want, the more likely you’ll toughen up and earn various skills that can help you cope with the challenges life throws.

Everyday Hair, Skin And Makeup Routine.

Hello Everybody, if you are looking for the perfect hair and skin care routine which is about 80% natural and a basic everyday makeup routine, then you are in the right place.

1.Haircare Routine

So for this, began with dry hair.

Take equal parts of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Coconut Oil and heat it. Massage it into your hair and wrap it with a hot towel and let it stay for about 2 hrs.

Wash it off with your regular shampoo and conditioner, I use the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and conditioner.
Dry your hair not with a towel, DON’T DO IT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE CURLY/WAVY HAIR. It just makes your hair really frizzy and that is not going to help. At all. Use a soft t-shirt or a microfiber towel.

This routine above, is something I do once in three days.

WEEKEND HAIR ROUTINE
Sundays are the only time we get to look after ourselves, so let’s put it to the best use.

Take one tbsp. of honey, 2-3 tbsps. of yogurt (plain) and 2 tsps. of olive oil. Stir it until its well mixed, apply it onto your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes and follow your regular hair washing routine or the one above.
This mask stimulates hair follicles, nourishes your hair and makes it smoother.

I do this every Sunday.

2.Skin Care Routine.

Ok so I use some products from Himalaya Herbals, obviously it is not 100% natural and herbal but it is better than using other chemically formulated products.

I use a Neem Peel Off mask and Himalaya Neem Face Wash. I use the mask once in three days and the face wash every single day. It is really effective for my skin type.

WEEKEND ROUTINE
Mix equal parts of honey and turmeric and 2-3 tsps. of lemon juice. Mix until it becomes a consistent paste and apply it to your face. When it becomes dry , wash it off and pat dry with a towel.

This rejuvenates your skin leaving it softer and also prevents acne and pimples.

3.Makeup Routine

a.Wash your face

b.Apply a cleanser and moisturizer.

c.Apply a foundation that matches your skin tone and blend it in with a foundation brush or a beauty blender.

d.Use a concealer under your eyes and also on pimples or spots you want to cover.

e.Use a setting powder to keep the base makeup in place.

f.With a fan brush, swipe on some highlighter on your cheeks and nose.

g.Blush- not really necessary and if you don’t have one you can use a lip stain and blend it in.

h.Bronzer; again not necessary, but you can use it on your jawline and hairline to make it look more prominent.

i.Eye Primer; to have a flawless base for your eye makeup.

j.Use 2 basic neutral shades, a dark one and a light one for your eyeshadow. The best thing is the stick eyeshadow, it is really easy to apply and you don’t really need to work as hard as using a regular eyeshadow palette.

k.A basic winged black eyeliner is the most important thing. If you can’t master the wing, use a scotch tape. Stick it on the outer corner of your eye and wing your eyeliner.

l.Swipe on some mascara. It gives a dramatic look to your eyes.

m.Eyebrow pencil; I have never really felt the need to fill in my eyebrows, mine are naturally shaped and thick. You can use a pencil to fill in your eyebrows to give it a fuller look or get it shaped a salon.

n.Lipstick/Lip Balm/ Lip stain; finish it off with a basic shade of lipstick that complements your skin tone.

So that’s pretty much what I do for my skin and hair and make up. Hope you liked this article and found it useful.
