Notebook and Pen

eyewear, glasses, vision care, brand, tab, You never know when some paper 📒 and something to write with 🖊will come in handy. If you get inspiration, want to sketch something quickly, or just need to give someone a note, it will be right at your fingertips.


Hand Sanitizer

hair, face, person, hairstyle, nose, During our day to day, we come into contact with so much! There are so many cute hand sanitizers that smell great for you to throw in your bag for the times you need to clean up.


Business Cards

handbag, bag, fashion accessory, tote bag, leather, There’s nothing worse than running into a potential networking contact and having nothing to give them, so be prepared! Just carrying a few business cards with you will come in handy for those opportunities, and you can leave them at places you visit during the day as well.


Portable Charger

Hair Ties

hair, hairstyle, long hair, braid, brown hair, We have all had those moments where we’ve scoured our bags searching for a hair 💇🏻 tie in vain. That’s why I always make sure to keep four or five in my purse so that I will always have one, in the event they magically disappear or someone needs to borrow one.


Pads and Tampons

human action, hair, face, person, nose, The rule of thumb: always be prepared. This means that you should expect the unexpected. Always carrying the products you need ensures that you are prepared for anything that might occur.


Makeup Wipes

eye, beauty, eye shadow, organ, product, I have had so many times where I wished I had makeup remover with me. When a long day is over, nothing is better than being able to quickly remove your makeup on the go. Having wipes also is good for touch ups if needed.

These are just a few of the essentials that any smart and successful woman should keep in their purse 👜 It always is good to be prepared. If you have any other suggestions, leave them in the comments!
