The Bag


What’s in her bag?


Name: Helen Solange Inengite (Madame Solange)

Occupation: Founder and creative director of Effizioni ventures, and a HR Administrator, at one of Nigeria’s Oil and Gas Company.

Personal style: My style is quite French – classic, chic, with a dramatic twist. Yes! I quite like a Classic Chic Feminine look and love my heels anyway. During the day I tend to be running between meetings however never mind the pain of the heels as my wheels.

The Bag: It is the latest addition to my bag shelf; this is a classic designer inspired brown Leather bag by handbag brand, Yes collection 1999. It’s my latest purchase from Milan and just love it – roomy enough to fit lots in, yet still looks really chic

The Gadgets Inside: My Samsung Note 2, and My Blackberry which I actually can’t do without.

Beauty Products: I wear make-up during the day and love; By Mary Kay products, Cover girl, Black-up Tara and Mac makeup pallet. More so I always have a lip gloss, loose powder and hair brush in my handbag for a little hint of color and that prim and proper look. Another must is a good hand cream and a bottle of perfume, right now I’m using a gorgeous lavender one from L’Occitaine and my must have Chance Channel which reminds me of holidays in Paris France.

The rest: My Make up Purse – always an essential, especially needed if I’ve been worked up in the middle of the day and some statement jewellery for when I need to dress up an outfit in an instant.
