Items Every Busy Girl Needs In Her Bag

Some of us thrive in a non-stop lifestyle. We love to be productive and cram as much as we possibly can into our (already busy) schedules. If that's you, then you know it's important to pack smart from day-to-day and avoid forgetting anything that you may need. Aside from your obvious basics: chapstick, cell phone, feminine products, here is your ultimate checklist of must-have items to ensure that you are prepared for any situation you could and up facing.

1. Deodorant ball to freshen up. 

Why not just a mini deodorant stick? I mean technically that would be fine too but trust me, it's way more fun and on-the-go friendly in ball form.

2. Blotting sheets.

Unless you are blessed by the skin gods, running around like a maniac all day probably causes a little sweat and oil buildup on your face. ESPECIALLY during the hot months of the year. This is what blotting sheets were made for, to instantly rid of the shine and have your skin back to looking as fresh as it did at 7 a.m.

3. Breath strips.

Gum is okay, and if its all you have to kick your post-coffee breath then that's fine as long as you are aware of when to spit it out. If you are meeting with people throughout the day, it might leave the wrong impression for you to be sitting there smacking your gum. You never know when you will run into someone important, which is why I recommend fast dissolving Listerine strips instead to be safe.

4. Roll on perfume.

Why do you think they make all of your favorite scents in those tiny roller ball tubes? It is S-U-B-T-L-E. If you are used to lugging around a spray-on in your bag, this will change your life. It's one thing to spritz yourself down at home before you leave in the morning, but nobody wants to be standing in a cloud of your perfume as you proceed to re-douse yourself in public.

5. An easy snack.

Anyone still reading this clearly relates to being busy, and any busy person sadly knows that sometimes you just don't have time for every meal. And when I say sometimes, I mean we are forced to skip meals at least a few times per week. This doesn't mean that you have to suffer through hunger pains, fatigue, or crankiness though, not if you're prepared! Get in the habit of carrying a filling nutrition bar in your bag as a just-in-case. GoMacro Bars are an easy go to that also won't get crushed easily.

6. Portable charger.

Or a charging case, one or the other is definitely worth the investment when you know you won't have time to recharge your phone and will probably be using it heavily for important things.

7. Individually wrapped all purpose wipes.

If you have never seen these or don't know what I'm talking about, you should check out this link. All-purpose wipes come in handy so often, and Kleenex even makes a brand so versatile that you can do anything from sanitize a table to wipe off eye makeup with the same wipe. This eliminates the need for hand sanitizer, napkins, tissues, disinfectant, and so much more. Your possibilities are truly endless.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
