My bags are getting smaller recently and The Mother is getting worried.

“How to put water bottle? You got enough to drink?”

“How to fit umbrella in there? It’s going to rain!”

Well, there’s always a way to get around it. There’s no lack of water in restaurants or taxi around, no? ;)

But a girl on a date shouldn’t be carrying her entire assets on her shoulders. Be a little more carefree, I say. Stop worrying about lugging your entire make-up kit and whether this is your fifth time on your three-hour date.

I call this bag detoxing. Once you realised how much unnecessary (and collectively heavy) items you’ve been carrying around, you will be immensely surprised. The result is liberating too.

If you must, just these few items in your handbag will get you through the day:

1. Lip Balm/Butter
2. Lipstick
3. Compact Blush
4. Tissue
5. Mobile Phone
