While she is at her place, it is easy for her to take care of herself because it is her domain, her own house – everything is within her reach and knowledge. But when she steps out, it is a deal that she carries herself off well and good. A woman has to not only look after her elegance but also her health, safety and hygiene when she is away from home. What lets her carry all the tools for her self-care is her bag. So, they often fumble and jumble over a list of haves and have notes for this purpose.
