Have you ever wondered what you should be bringing in your handbags? Or having difficulty editing your essentials down to the bare minimum? You’re not alone, that happens to us too. With Handbag Edits, we show you what you can throw into different bags of different sizes. We also have celebrities and personalities share their bag must-haves and current favorites.
It’s true what they say that when you see something unique, it’s hard to forget about it. That was my reaction when I saw a netizen tweet about a “cauldron bag” and how it’s a witch’s dream bag.

This is the STAUD Keaton Leather Bag. It’s described as having “the curvature of a lantern,” and has a spherical lower half. It comes with a top handle and crossbody strap too. When you look inside it, it looks quite shallow and reminds me of a Halloween treat basket, but more stylish.
However, it’s currently April. So we’re throwing in summer-related items, as well as a couple treats, in the Keaton bag, Don’t underestimate its size because it can hold a lot.
Charles & Keith Red Snap Button Card Holder
This will keep your ATM and calling cards, and also your bills, safe at all costs. It’s in a compact shape, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space, and it matches the Keaton bag’s color. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Privé Riveaux The Harajuku
The Harajuku reminds me of Trinity’s shades in The Matrix series. If you feel like rocking an edgy lewk for the day, give this pair a try. A black trench coat is optional (it’s summer, don’t do that to yourself). Available at Rustan’s, Shangri-La Plaza.
Kool Aspen Bottle
Kool is known for its folding bottles, which you can switch from tall to short in one simple move. You can easily keep this inside the Keaton when it’s in the short form. It’s made from BPA-free material and can hold up to 500 ml of liquids. You can also drink cold and hot beverages from this. Available online.
Honest Junk Calamansi Super Gummies
It may not be Halloween, but you’re free to bring around a pack of gummy bears whenever you like. This one is calamansi-flavored and also made with malunggay for added nutrients. Now that’s a snack we’re willing to eat a lot of. Available online.
Take Root Apple Pie Energy Bar
Another snack you can pack is this Take Root energy bar. It’s made with plant-based ingredients, including warm apple pie flavor that will remind you of grandma’s baking. Feel free to munch on this if you feel a little hungry on the road. Available at select SaladStop! branches.
Escents PH Keep Your Cool Cooling Spray
We are so done with the summer heat. If you are too, it’s time you bring a facial mist made with menthol and peppermint extracts for an instant cooling effect. Also, misting is a great way to relieve yourself from the heat. Get on it! Available on Beauty MNL.
The Mala Tree Citrine Tumbled Point
It doesn’t hurt to bring a crystal in a witch-like cauldron-shaped bag, right? Citrine is known for promoting and manifesting success and abundance—what every working woman needs in their lives, TBH. Just put this whole crystal in your bag and bring it with you everywhere. Available at The Mala Tree Boutique.
