I am sure a majority of women have an arsenal in their handbag that would save them from disaster should one hit! 

Painkillers, lip balm, sunscreen, spare pens, nail fails - all are floating in the bottom of your bag. Sound familiar?

Suddenly your artillery is elsewhere, and you know how it goes - that's when disaster will hit! I cannot count the number of times I have been working and cornered by a bridesmaid or the mother of the bride who is in desperate need of tissues, Hollywood tape, scissors, mosquito repellent - you name it and I've been asked for it!

For an all day event like the races or a wedding, a bag like this comes in handy and only gets better the more you add to it. Simple, don’t you think?
