On my YouTube channel, I've started doing a series on things every well-prepared woman should carry with her. I've already gotten enough for 2-3 more videos...thanks to by BFF over at A Life of Style, Kim, and a couple of my YT subscribers. Here is a recap...
$20 in cash: My mom told me to carry cash since I was old enough to go anywhere! She reminded me of it when I started dating and I do it to this day. Even in this technological age, sometimes you just need cash. Whether it's to leave a tip or because a small business owner only accepts cash or because you are stranded somewhere and need to catch a bus or cab home....keeping a small amount of cash (especially women) is a MUST-DO!
Clear Nail Polish: Clear nail polish has a myriad of uses and can come in handy on the run.
Stop runs in panty hose
Waterproof matches (useful if you go camping *shrugs*)
Add shine to costume jewelry and belt buckles
Thread needles (dip thread, rub between fingers. Dries quickly and hardens to make threading easier)
Spare Earrings: Can't tell you the number of times I've either lost an earring or it broke. Having a spare pair of earrings is a life saver for me, because I'd rather go home than walk around without earrings! LOL I recommend either a pair of diamond studs or pearl earrings. Just remember to put them back in your bag after you've worn them.
A Pair of Sunglasses: This is for my inner celebrity! They are a must-have when I travel...especially by plane. As soon as the doors open to the airport terminal, on go the shades. They come in handy when I travel early in the AM. Sunglasses (especially if they are big enough) and clear lip gloss give an illusion of a totally made up face.
Mini Sewing Kit: This is pretty self explanatory. Always good to have in case a button pops off or a hem rips. I admit I don't routinely carry this, but Kim convinced me to do so. You can purchase them from your local dollar store.
Travel Toothbrush and Toothpaste: Once again pretty self-explanatory. Sometimes gum and mints don't cut it. And you (and no one around you) wants to smell garlic breath all night LOL.
