Sometimes, it's easy to forget how many things we need to carry with us on a daily basis. While the contents of every woman's bag is different there are a few handbag essentials that every woman should keep stashed away. 


We looked to our Editors for a few tips on the things no woman should be without, and found out what they carry on a daily basis... 

Sunnies 

Keep a pair of  sunnies in your tote and you’ll always look chic. Plus, if you’re having a bad day or the sun’s shining, it’s a bonus if you can keep your eyes protected while looking ultra cool. 

Concealer 

Late night? Headed to the bar after work? Long day at the office? A good quality concealer is the miracle-worker for the woman on the go. 

Signature lipstick 

Your go-to shade says a lot about you and a quick slick of lipstick is always guaranteed to take your look to the next level. Carry your signature lip product in your bag so you can always refresh, whatever the occasion. 

Wallet

Even though you can pay for most things on the go with your smartphone, keep a luxe wallet with some cash, a few cards and an ID in your handbag at all times. You never know when you'll get carded after all. 

Dry shampoo 

Revive tired, flat or greasy hair with a little dry shampoo and look fresh in an instant. There are some great minis out there, perfect for throwing into your bag before you head out the door.

On est parfois amené à quitter notre douce France, pour raisons professionnelles, par goût d’aventure ou par amour. On se retrouve alors expédié à l’autre bout de la Terre ou juste de l’autre côté de la Manche. Que cela soit par volonté ou obligation, on doit bien avouer il y a une tonne de choses qui vont nous manquer de notre pays d’origine. On ne réalise pas toujours ces petits plaisirs bien français qui vont nous manquer cruellement une fois expatrié…


1. Le rytme de travail
Les 35h, 5 semaines de vacances, les RTT, la flopée de jours fériés… Et on trouvait encore le moyen de se plaindre ?! 

2. Râler sans culpabiliser 
“Il est déguelasse ce café !”,”T’as vu comment elle est encore fagotée celle-là ?”, “C’est quoi encore tout ce monde à la Poste ?”. C’est dans notre nature. On a besoin d’exterioriser notre frustration. C’est bon pour le moral, ok ? Et si vous n’êtes pas contents, c’est votre problème. P*tain. 

3. La télé sans pub toutes les 30 secondes
Ils étaient vraiment obligés de remettre des pubs même avant le générique de fin ?!

4. Le fromage, le pain, la charcuterie et le bon vin
Bref, la bouffe. Les imitations baguettes, la piquette et le bacon ca va bien deux minutes, mais rien ne vaut les bons produits de chez nous.

5. La sécurité sociale 
Dentiste, médecin, ophtalmo… elle était belle l’époque où on n’avait pas à vendre notre chien, donner un rein et sacrifier notre premier né pour se faire soigner une carie. 

6. La mode/le style
Certes, chaque pays à son lot de particularités mode qu’on adore. Londres et son côté glam rock, l’Espagne et son amour des couleurs, le Japon et son style kawaii.. Mais Paris n’est pas la capitale de la mode pour rien, on a un petit truc en plus.

7. Ne pas avoir à répéter 15 fois son prénom 
Oui, on l’a compris, on n’est pas les meilleurs pour parler anglais avec notre accent à couper au couteau. Promis, on va faire un effort (ou alors la terre entière devrait apprendre à parler français non ? Pourquoi c’est à nous de faire un effort ? Déjà qu’ils ne sont pas foutu de faire de la baguette digne de ce nom…).

8. Le service pas inclus 
Vous allez au restaurant, vous passez une bonne soirée, on vous donne l’addition, et la vous vous rendez compte que vous être supposés payer encore plus ??  

9. Faire la bise
Au moins c’est simple. Quelle idée de faire un “hug” à quelqu’un pour lui dire bonjour ? On doit lui faire la bise en même temps ? Ou juste une bise unique ? On doit les prendre dans nos bras ou seulement avec une accolade d’un bras ? Voilà qui promet de vite devenir gênant… 

10. Les volets
Les expat’ vivant en Angleterre ou aux US vont nous comprendre la dessus: les anglo-saxons boudent clairement les volets. Après tout, qui voudrait passer une bonne nuit de sommeil dans le noir complet sans se faire réveiller par les rayons du soleil à 7h du mat ? Pas les anglais apparemment. Alors merci pour le masque de nuit !

Et ce qui ne va pas nous manquer ? Les français évidemment ! Cette bande de râleurs toujours en train de se plaindre pour des volets ou une tranche de fromage….

If you haven’t already been bombarded with wedding photos and relationship status updates from dozens of smiling couples lately, you’d better brace yourself for what’s about to clog up your social media feeds next month!


Like June, September is another peak month for getting hitched in the U.S. Despite 40-50% of married couples divorcing in this country (the divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher), America’s wedding industry is now valued at $55 billion.

If you’re sick to death of all the wedding talk that’s been happening around you, it may be time to come out of the Missing Bride Gene Closet. Not sure if that’s quite you? Here are 7 signs you’re missing the bride gene...

1) You think wearing white is lame. You haven’t been a virgin in like, forever, and believe the “innocence of girlhood” dies the moment you get a fake ID.

2) It’s 2am and you and a girlfriend are the last stragglers propping up the bar. The conversation turns to marriage and while the idea may or may not be appealing, you get bored the moment she starts tearing up and regaling you with how she’s always dreamed of what her wedding day would be like.

3) The thought of spending thousands - if not tens of thousands - of dollars on anything other than world travel, upgrading to a better apartment, or even splurging for a new wardrobe makes you queasy.

4) …You also can’t stomach the idea of standing up in front of everybody and making a public declaration of love to your significant other for everyone to ohh and ahh at.

5) Elopement seems preferable to evolving from "blushing bride" to full on bridezilla.

6) You cling to the hope that surely, SURELY the biggest or most significant moment in a woman’s life isn’t necessarily the day she gets married, right?

7) You’re constantly reminding everyone it’s 2016 and that there are plenty of happy couples who’ve spent decades together without having a wedding or even getting married.

Still not sure if you really are missing the bride gene? Watch the above scenes from Sex and the City (2008) to compare which character you're most likely to react like when your BFF says she's engaged!

The Quarter Life Crisis, a term coined a few years ago to describe the low point that millennials feel in the time period between their mid twenties and thirties. The years that cause us to scream "Where am I going and WTF is the point?". It's a turbulent, transitioning and generally pretty crap time. 

According to science, like the studies conducted by Dr Oliver Robinson at the University of Greenwich, there are 4 main phases of the QLC. Firstly you feel "locked" to a job or relationship, or both. Secondly, you begin feeling a growing sense that change is possible. Thirdly, you embark on a period of rebuilding your life. Finally, you begin to cement those new commitments. 

Science is all well and good, but personally those 4 stages sound far too clean-cut and objective. So we've come up with our own tell-tale signs. If these apply to you, then you probably are having a QLC:

1. You've moved 7 times in the last 4 year, and have had just as many boyfriends. Permanence is a myth in your life right now, and the thought of committing to anything for longer than 3 months fills you with dread but is also the main thing you pine over. 

2. You're not sure whether to class yourself as an adult or a twenty-something. Or if being a twenty-something means you are, in fact, an adult. Britney's "I'm not a girl, not yet a woman" lyric has never been more applicable.

3. You have a constant internal monologue that weighs up the pros and cons of your life choices. Do you travel and 'find yourself' or start climbing the career ladder? Also, how can you do either of those things when you're broke and under qualified? Sh*t. 

4. You get unfathomably upset when you don't get asked for ID. Gone are the days when you'd be pissed off that the bouncer questioned you (and your fake ID), now you practically beg. 

5. You have a lot of short-lived spurts of inspiration. You'll decide one week that you're going to write a novel, get up at 5am every morning for 7 days and write before work. The next week you spiral and decide that none of it is worth it and you may as well spend your free time sleeping. 

6. You are extremely jealous of everyone who isn't the same age as you. You don't look at babies with fondness anymore, nay, you look at they with distain. Why? Because they don't realise how easy they've got it. Also, you wish, every morning before work, that you were your cat. 

7. You don't know how taxes work, but you do them anyway. You also realise that most of your income goes on food and alcohol. Which, btw, you can no longer metabolise at the same rate nor handle. Hangovers are now a 3 day affair. 

Do these sound familiar? If they do, don't worry you're not alone. A large majority of the Y generation are in the same boat. We're the generation who seemingly have success and fortune at our fingertips (thanks, Mark Zuckerberg) yet have been given zero guidance or instruction about how to obtain it. The old format of success that our parents followed no longer applies, because the most successful people in our generation are YouTube beauty gurus and tech geniuses who create dating apps. Life for millennials who are reaching for success is like a chipmunk trying to become President of the USA. Although, to be fair, if Trump can be in the running a chipmunk sounds like the more sane option. 

Thus far this all looks bleak. But there are positives. Firstly, we're all in it together. Secondly, the definition of 'success' has changed. Our parents saw 'getting on the property ladder' as an important milestone, but for us, that isn't feasible. So rather than feeling like failures because we can't afford a house and don't have a pension, we should realise that it's bloody tough out there and we're doing our best. We're creating new formats to find success through- because the old ones don't work anymore.

Keep going, a Quarter Life Crisis is somewhat inevitable but you'll come out the other side a better person. Why? Because although the QLC isn't a fun experience it does mean that you're seriously reconsidering certain life choices and reevaluating what's important to you. It's good to be selfish occasionally, especially when it comes to what we want from life/relationships/work.

If all else fails, there is always wine.

Cheryl turns 33 today! Yep, that's right, the Geordie beauty first hit our screens 13 years ago! How time flies...


Cheryl and boyfriend Liam Payne have been dating for less than a year, having first met on the X-factor back in 2008 when he was just 14. According to reports it seems that Liam has splashed out on a diamond ring for his beau's birthday! 

Now that would be a birthday to remember. However, there is just one small detail, Cheryl is still technically married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini...

Cheryl does have the Payne fams approval though, with his sister Ruth calling her 'one of the most beautiful women in the world'. Let's hope it's true, a 1D and Girls Aloud wedding would be one for the books.

+ Watch Chezza and Liam make their red carpet debut above and scroll right in our gallery to see more of the loved up couple...

If you’ve started picturing yourself lugging a suitcase full of stuff to LFW this year, it’s time to take a step back and think about what you really need to take! 


Once you’ve found the perfect bag to put everything in (we recommend a fairly large one with space for freebies), you’ll only need to pop in these LFW essentials: 

- Your ID, Oyster, business cards, hotel card and your passes and invitations to the events.

- A notebook and pen for easy note taking and sketching designs, and a diary or organiser to keep track of where you need to go, and to add new events and contacts along the way. 

- Subtle perfume to top up during the day, dry shampoo to give lift to your hair if it needs it and concealer and mascara to top up your make-up throughout the day. 

- Bold lipstick, along with lip gloss to make your lips shine, tinted lip balm to combat dryness and hand cream to keep your hands soft as you meet-and-greet.

- Smartphone with a case to show off your style, and a power bank, particularly if you’ll be using your phone for pictures and note taking. 

- Sunglasses just in case London’s actually sunny in February, a pretty watch in case your phone dies and statement accessories that you can add to your outfit to switch from day to night. 

- Flat shoes for when you’re running between shows, or a pair of statement heels to slip in and out of depending on the event. 

You’ll also need a small but high-quality camera to get the best pictures, along with snacks such as cereal bars, dried fruit, chocolate and water to keep you going.

If this your first time at London Fashion Week, then here's how you blag it like a seasoned pro! 


1. Prep Is Key: One month before LFW, download the PR contacts and start requesting tickets. If you don’t hear from them, try sending an email a couple of days or even the day before the show - you’d be surprised how many last minute cancellations come up! 

2. Request Backstage Access: Not only do you get some great behind-the-scenes shots, it also helps you sneak into the show if you didn’t manage to score a ticket.

3. Dress Like You're Meant To Be There: On trend, but not OTT (being ostentatious is now frowned upon). Think relaxed tailoring, trainers and oversized specs - plus your Macbook, iPhone and iPad! 

4. Be Cheeky: Invites addressed to someone else? No problem - they rarely ask for ID so just pretend it’s yours and go enjoy the show! 

5. Befriend The Interns: Make them your BFFs for the duration of LFW. They have access to pretty much everywhere, and will probably turn a blind eye to you casually strolling past them and into a show if you're Mrs Friendly.

In a twist of events mind-boggling even to us, a source has told Us Weekly that Selena Gomez and 1D's Niall Horan have been "seen kissing in the middle of the club, in front of everyone," on Friday night at Bootsy Bellows for Jenna Dewan-Tatum's 35th birthday bash!

Another source adds: "Niall and Selena definitely seemed very close and like they were together. Niall got there first with his bodyguard, then the next thing I know, I looked over and Selena was there. They were very close together, talking and whispering.

"Selena and Niall left together. She grabbed his arm on the way out and held on to it."

Selena had been been pictured dining at Nobu with Niall only weeks before, sparking rumours that she's moved on from Justin completely and has set her sights on a new baby-faced pop idol. 

In a series of interviews with Access Hollywood, Justin has confirmed his unconditional love for Selena: "I'm never going to stop loving her, I'm never going to stop checking in on her. I don't think if you end a relationship, you should end that..."
