Beauty Bag Necessities

Ladies, Admit It, We All Have An Emergency Beauty Bag And We Need To Have These 10 Items In It

Carrying around an emergency beauty bag can be a real lifesaver, whether it be a day at work or a date night!


I am almost positive every girl has found herself in a sticky situation while she is away from home, wishing more than anything she had that one tool in her purse to solve the problem. From beauty products to safety pins, keeping an emergency beauty bag in your purse or even designating an emergency pocket in your everyday purse can help avoid unwanted situations or help fix them when something goes wrong!

1. Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen


Getting caught in the middle of a busy work day with a killer headache is high up on my list of the worst situations to be in, so this is something I ALWAYS have on me. Conveniently, these brands both have travel size containers you can pick up at almost any store right by the check out counter.

2. Stain Stick


Have you ever been wearing your brand new white shorts out for a fun day with the girls and spill some of that iced coffee right into your lap? We all know that heartbreak. Carrying around a stain stick can help solve the problem temporarily until you can get those cute shorts home and give them some proper TLC.

3. Gum/Mints


We have all been in one of those situations where we just feel a little self conscious about our breath, whether it be from coffee or that salad with extra onions you had for lunch. Always having gum on hand to clear that up will allow you to relax and be the girl boss you are for the rest of your busy day.

4. Feminine Hygiene Products


This one goes without needing much of an explanation, but sometimes nature just likes to surprise us. Beyond personal needs, it's always nice to be able to help a fellow woman out if they're in need!

5. Chapstick


I'll admit it, I have a chapstick problem. I have one in every single bag I own and about 4 around my bedroom. Having dry lips is one of my biggest pet peeves so this is a must have for me. Not only does it make you feel better but it can also help protect your lips from the sun and even add a little color to your lips!

6. Band-Aids


I cannot begin to describe how many times I have been caught with massive blisters on my feet and no band-aids. From blisters to paper cuts that somehow manage to get scraped over and over again, having band-aids on hand is never a bad idea.

7. Safety Pins


This one may sound a little weird but hear me out. You're wearing a button up shirt but the top button pops off and you're showing a little bit more than you feel comfortable with. Safety pin to the rescue! It could also be used to make your shirt a little more snug in the back of the collar if that shirt hangs just a little bit too low for your style. Safety pins were a lifesaver for me during my sorority recruitment!

8. Makeup


If you have an extra long day at work ahead of you, having a little bit of touchup powder or lipstick in your purse can help keep you looking fresh and professional all day long. Another item that falls under this category that might be helpful to keep in your bag is blotting sheets for the days your skin is a little extra oily!

9. Travel Size Deodorant


Living in Florida, you can never use too much deodorant, even if you're just walking outside for 5 minutes. Carrying around a travel size of your favorite brand can help keep you fresh throughout the day and protect both you and those around you from the evils of summer body odor!

10. Floss


This will come in handy after a business lunch, or even just coming back to work for a meeting after your own personal lunch! It's important to be looking and feeling your best at all times and having something to help keep your smile shiny and bright will work wonders for this!

11 Things To Do In Buckfield, Maine

They say there's not a lot to do in small town, but I can prove you wrong!

What's Buckfield? Where is it? This small town is one you've probably never heard of, but it is still a great place to visit! This small town is where former "Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsy grew up. Like any other small town, it's claimed there's nothing to do there. After living in a town for so many years, you forget about all the great things it really has to offer. Here are just a few of Buckfield's most attributable places and activities.

1. Visit the tavern.

A small town favorite! Stop by Captain Bly's Tavern for drinks, delicious food, live music, karaoke nights and an all around fun environment.

2. See the garden.

Visit the community garden located behind Buckfield High School. A cool project originally started by Annette Caldwell, Gretchen Kimball and other teachers and community members, this garden gives students hands on working experience and a fun chance to learn to play, grow, build things and spend time outdoors (even in the summer time). Buckfield's community garden is one of the biggest community gardens in the state of Maine.

3. Swim at the Bennett Quarry and Orchard Pit.

With permission, you can visit these lovely and fun adventure spots. The Bennet Quarries (first picture) are known for having some great gem finds, and the Orchard Pit (second picture) is, as well, but it is more known as a great swim spot!

4. Go to the biggest mall in town.

Well, the only mall in town! Much to your surprise (I'm sure), it's not the mall where you can buy all your clothes, shoes and perfumes! Though you can buy a few "Maine" shirts and hats, you can also fill up your gas tank and get a wonderful Italian or pizza at the Buckfield Mall.

5. Travel the Railroad Bed.

Nearly a five-mile stretch going from Hebron to Sumner (with Buckfield in the middle), this is the perfect place to go four-wheeling, biking, walking, running, horseback riding and in the winter, snowmobiling!

6. Hike the Packard Trail.

A two-mile-long, five-foot-wide loop trail located off of the railroad bed. This trail is rated to be a moderately difficult hike, but it's well worth the views you see along the way.

7. Play at the "Rec field."

A small park between two baseball fields, this is the perfect kid place with slides, swings, merry-go-round and more. You can also watch a local baseball or softball game during the summer!

8. Travel the Nezinscot.

Take a canoe or kayak down the Nezinscot River for a peaceful, scenic river, stretching through several small Maine towns.

9. See the Zadoc Long Free Library.

Located in the heart of Buckfield is the public library. The Zadoc Long Library has several rows of books for all ages. It also holds weekly book clubs, children's books readings and other fun groups. Also, in front of the library is a memorial to honor veterans.

10. Visit Basin Falls

A trip to Basin falls is a great idea in the summer (probably not so child friendly) and leads to a shady, rocky falls and small pools of water for a dip on hot days!

11. Visit Roundabout Farm.

Visit the Roundabout Farm and take a mini horse carriage ride down one of their travels, or visit the various farm animals.

6 Reasons Traveling Is Good For Your Mind, Body, And Soul

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.


Have you ever traveled to a new destination and felt your mood instantly improve? Are you like me and feel happiest when you're on vacation? This is because traveling is a way for you to renew your soul and step out of your comfort zone. It keeps you happy and allows you to experience new things.

Visiting new destinations can open your mind to experiences you didn't even know were possible. You can meet new people, fall in love, try new foods, and see remarkable sites all while traveling. There are no limits to the places you can visit, and the things you can see. Currently, I am on a mini weekend trip to Arizona, and being here has opened my eyes and made me realize how impactful traveling really is on your mind, body, and soul. Traveling should be something you do as often as possible and whenever you get the chance. Here's why:

1. Traveling makes your heart happy 

Traveling is something that most people enjoy. It keeps the heart young and childlike. Traveling brings people joy because they get to experience new things that they love with the people they love.

2. It teaches you to embrace every moment 

Traveling can be unpredictable, especially because you are experiencing new things. Although it can be challenging, we learn best from these unpredictable moments. When we travel we learn to embrace every situation that is thrown at us.

3. Traveling relieves stress and improves mental health 

Traveling reduces stress and allows you to relax. More often than not, you take off work when you go on vacation and you focus on renewing your self. You get away from all the crazy things going on in your life, and you can just relax and focus on your own happiness.

4. It broadens your horizons 

Traveling lets you branch out and experience different cultures. You can try new foods, new activities, and meet all different types of people. You learn diversity, and you learn respect for other people and their culture's. Traveling helps you learn other perspectives around the world and lets your mind think in ways it never has before.

5. It keeps you healthy 

Traveling actually plays a big part in your physical health as well. During vacations, you often walk a lot to destinations and participate in calorie burning activities like hiking and swimming. Activities like these are often why you still are able to get your workout in while on vacation.

6. Traveling reminds you what is important 

Most importantly, traveling reminds you of the important things in life. We live day by day forgetting that every moment is remarkable. Sometimes, we get stuck in the same old boring routine and take for granted the life we have been given. Traveling reminds us that memories are valuable and that our lives should be cherished.
