Every fashion-loving girl has at least one handbag (whether shoulder, over the body or clutch), and in that bag there'll be a clever stash of problem-solvers and life-enhancers.  

Mine always has a small packet of wipes (I'm a mum), a lip balm, a cat-shaped mirror my daughter gave me (which has caused a customs bag inspection on one occasion) and an emery board.  

Oh, and I recently acquired a tape measure for my keyring - it's already come in handy once. The keyring itself is a gorgeous Mi Piaci heart which cleverly zips to hold coins - if only I could jam my credit card and my coffee card in there too!

There's always room for enhancement - so we called on our sources and scoured the net to bring you new and outstanding handbag helpers.

Can you beat them? What's your favourite item in your handbag of tricks?
