With a busy career and family life, I have a lot to juggle whether it’s commuting to London for a work commitment, putting in a shift at the pub or spending time with my family, I’m always on the go.
There are a few firm favourites that you will always find in my handbag, which help my busy days run a little smoother.
Like most people these days, I can’t leave the house without my mobile phone. As a mum, I always need to be at the end of the phone in case my little one needs me, but I also love to keep in touch with my friends and family on a regular basis. If I find myself in London, with some free time on my hands, it’s a great opportunity to call up an old friend and have a catch up over coffee – something I wouldn’t be able to do if I left my phone behind!
Portable Phone Charger
This goes hand in hand with my phone. As I use my mobile a lot to catch up with friends and reply to emails on the go, it tends to drain the battery. My portable phone charger is always on hand when I need it!
A fashion favourite, I take my sunglasses with me wherever I go. Whether I’m dashing around London heading to an event, or taking a relaxing long summer walk in the countryside, my sunglasses are a must-have for any trip.
It’s so important to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day - I can’t leave the house without applying a generous layer of lip balm and keeping it to hand during the day. When you’re constantly on the go it’s great to have a 100% natural balm that nourishes and hydrates your lips!
To safely store my must-haves, I love The Darcy tote bag from Englana’s Mono Collection. I love the versatile and effortless design which takes me from the school run to an evening out in London.
The rich, black leather is a beautiful colour choice all year round. I pair The Darcy with my favourite skinny jeans and heels for a casual, yet stylish look.
