So take charge, grab your favorite tote, and prep your bag with these items so you're ready for whatever the universe may throw your way.
1. Written material
Journal & Pen - for meetings, interviews, to do lists, calendar memos, travel treasures, doodles, reminders, and more. Great for keeping organized.
Books/Magazines - for keeping entertained on trains, planes, and automobiles; in waiting rooms and on lunch breaks.
2. Life savors
Disinfecting Wipes - for awful commutes or messy meals.
Fruit/Nut Bars - for those times you're desperate for a quick pick me up.
Fan - for those scorching hot days where it's almost unbearable to be outside, there's no AC in the subway, or you're in need of an impromptu fan machine selfie.
Charger - for those days that you just can't seem to keep your phone charged - we'll blame this on Instagram, Snapchat, and Trivia Crack.
Headphones - for listening to your favorite mixtapes or when the airplane has that movie that you were dying to see in theaters.
Collapsible Tote - for grocery shopping, running errands, or when you just couldn't stop yourself from shopping a little too much.
3. Beauty Enhancers
Hair Bands/Pins - for horrible hairdays, gym visits, or for impromptu updos for evening events.
On-the-Glow Blush & Illuminator - for that all in one makeup must have. Helps to brighten complexion and adds a natural flush of color to lips/cheeks.
Face Mist - to instantly wake up tired/dull skin and keep hydrated on sunny days.
Makeup Wipes - for makeup mistakes, cleansed slates, or to remove product before sleep or a long flight.
Sunscreen - for those sunny days at the beach, park, or wanderess wanderings around a new city.
Statement Jewelry - for an impromptu meeting, appointment, date, dinner, or drinks. A piece of statement jewelry and a colorful lip is the easiest way to transition your look from day to night.
