My Emergency Bag

Every girl has a little emergency bag full of the items that she might need during the day or always needs with her. I always have had one but I really streamlined what I carry because I don't like to break my shoulder in a tote bag. It all fits in this small Fossil makeup bag I carry.

Mini Lotion and Blister Block - I love to make sure my hands and feet stay soft so I always have lotion with me. I have been using a mini of Creme de la Corps Kiehl's lotion that I love lately but any small (less than 3 ounce) lotion works for an emergency bag.  I love blister block for when I break in new flats or boots. It's a life saver and even though I did not want to pay $10 bucks at our local CVS for it, it's proved its worth time and time again.

Tide to Go Pen - I am notorious for spilling coffee all over things and the Tide To Go Pen keeps me from looking a hot mess all the time. I always buy the three pack and keep them on hand at all times.

Burt's Bees Chapstick - Dry lips are not cute and the winter time really messes with my lips. I always keep Burt's Bees with me but switch out the scent for the season. They have a fantastic grapefruit one for the summer and I love the peppermint for the winter. I also keep a ton of these at home for fear of running out!

Hair Ties and Bobby Pins - As any girl knows, your hair can go from fantastic to wet dog in a matter of seconds. I always keep the supplies to put my hair into a cute updo with me so I can look awesome!

Mints, Gum and Disposable Toothbrushes - Fresh breath is a must! I love the disposable toothbrushes for when I eat something strong that makes me breath gross for the day like garlic or onion.

Deodorant and Perfume (Roller Ball) - Smelling good is important. I have a roller ball in a couple of scents that I will throw on if I feel a little fancy or need a touch up from the morning. Sometimes, I can forget to put deodorant on in the morning and I like to make sure I carry some just in case that happens that day!

Wipes and Q- Tips- I like to make sure after a workout or eating something sticky that my skin is clean. I also love keeping Q-tips to touch up makeup or clean my ears.

Medicine - I like to make sure I have at least one of medicine I am taking with me at all times. Sometimes in a allergy or cold daze, I forget to pack medicine for the day into my bag. I usually carry Dayquil during the winter and Benedryl during the summer.

Burts Bees Res-Q and Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Gel- I like to use as many natural products as possible. The Res-Q is basically like natural solve everything. It's good on mosquito bites, allergic reactions and any sort of random skin malady. For when I see a pimple coming, I will slap a little Tea Tree Oil on the bump so I can nip it in the bud.

Mini Scissors and Mini Tweezers - You never know when you could get a snap in a sweater or a random hair that needs plucking. These are both the smallest versions I could find and totally are worth tucking away.

Extra NSBE Pin and Lady Things - These things are random but totally necessary. I never know when  have an event where I am representing NSBE in my normal clothes and I like to wear something to remind people that is the organization I am dedicated to. Lady things are totally self exploratory. It's also nice to be able to cover your friends if they happen to forget!
