5 Essential Date Items For Your Small Purse
So you’re going out on a date, and you don’t want to bring your standard gigantic bag full of everything you’ll ever need in life, plus some more just to hoard. What, that’s just me? Well, you know what I mean, though. The idea is to create the illusion that you’re not, in fact, a bag lady. So what in god’s name shall you bring with you in your downsized purse on this date that could lead to maybe anything and everything?
1) 2 Essential Cosmetics
Everyone has 2 basic cosmetic necessities. Generally, you’ll want to bring one item per face area. For me, it’s definitely powder and lipstain. I know what you’re thinking- what about eyes? See, with the powder, you get a portable mirror. so that’s actually like 3 things in one. If you’re a real pro, though, and feel confident in your appearance constantly, and don’t even need to look at yourself putting on mascara, then by all means, bring some eyes stuff. For the rest of us, though, a mirror and lip stuff is where it’s at.
Obviously. But if you have a clunky ass old iphone like me, just make sure there’s enough room for it, because it’s sort of non-negotiable space.
3) Cards & Cash
I’m a notorious fat wallet-haver. So what’s my solution? Get a credit card holder with those reversible band-thingies to hold your cash. True, you won’t be able to hold any change, but whatever, that’s the leading cause of fat wallet.
4) 1-2 Condoms
You can never be too prepared. No, it’s not presumptuous, it’s realistic. Stop shaming yourself, dummy!
5) Keys with bottle opener/rape deterrent attachment
Some people would say it’s very “college” to have a bottle opener attached to your keys. I say it’s practical (you’ll always be the hero when no bottle openers are to be found), and it can double as a face-slasher if your date turns out to be Jeffrey Dahmer.
