Some days I hardly leave the house and am glued to my laptop from the moment my eyes open to the moment they close. Other days I am running around like the world is on fire.

Having a healthy juice is for sure a smart thing to grab on the go but I’m actually referring to battery juice. HOW WOULD ONE SURVIVE IF THEIR PHONE BATTERY DIED and you couldn’t instantly charge it!? Talk about a living nightmare. Having a portable charger in arms reach can save the work day and leave you without a headache. If a Mophie isn’t already in your bag, put it in there.
A mid-day hunger strike never ends well for anyone involved. In the midst of a busy day keeping your energy level up is a necessity. If you don’t’ have time to stop and sit down to eat a proper lunch the next best option is to relay on a healthy snack option in your bag. An apple, unsalted almonds, or a protein bar will hold you over until your next meal. Also, keeping yourself hydrated is key. Having a refillable water bottle to carry with you is the way to go.
Call me old school but a pen and paper are my life line. I scribble it all down - lists, blog topics, meeting notes, on the spot inspiration. I recently just got this adorable note pad from Target that I typically leave my desk and leave this one in my bag.
I have showed up to a coffee shop one time to many times without my headphones that I swore to myself it would never happen again. If I’m writing or answering emails, there is 90% chance that there is a vibey / chill Spotify playlist playing in my ears. Put a spare pair of headphones in your bag and leave them there!
For the times where a mid-day mascara and lipstick refresh are needed – you’ll be happy to pull those life changing tubes out of your purse. My all-time mascara obsession is Superhero by IT cosmetics and good every day lip is a shade by Dose Of Colors.
Sunglasses. Don’t leave the house without them, ok? I have a long lasting crush with these Quay sunglasses.
THE JUST IN CASE
It happens to the best of us. The day’s fly by and we run out the door not realizing that today is the day where Aunt Flo is expected to visit. Having an extra tampon in your bag is must. You will either be the hero of your own day or someone else’s.
THE FRESH BREATH
You know those lattes that you’re living off? Well, no one wants to smell them off your breath mid meeting. Also, no one wants to hear you chomping on gum so mints it is.
