Successful career girls are motivated, determined and most certainly organised. It is essential to carry an emergency kit. Who knows what minor hiccup could happen throughout the day? It could be a headache before an important conference call or snagging your tights 5 minutes prior to a crucial meeting. Career girls, we take mini-crises like these in our stride. The reason being, tucked in our handbag or desk drawer is the ultimate emergency kit. To ensure you are equipped to deal with any potential situation, it would be smart to stash the following…
#1 Travel sized wipes.
These can be an absolute lifesaver. A latte spillage down the front of your perfect outfit is never a good look. Wipe away stains and marks to ensure you continue to look polished.
#2 Pain relief
If you are not feeling 100% well you will not perform to the best of your ability. If painkillers can ease that headache or sore neck then be sure to add this crucial item to the kit.
#3 Spare tights/stockings
Is there anything worse than snagging a pair of tights? It looks unkempt and unprofessional. Keep a spare pair in your office drawer.
#4 Needle and thread
We career girls can turn our hands to almost anything. Basic sewing skills are a must. Keep a mini sewing kit close at hand for urgent repairs.
#5 Eye drops or mist
Staring at screens all day is how we career girls function. Unfortunately the impact on the eyes is not so great. Keep a set of eye drops to soothe and refresh tired eyes.
#6 Sanitary Wear
This really is an essential piece of kit. If you have not been keeping track of your monthly cycle, don’t get caught out. Keep some mini items close by.
#7 Notepad and pen
There’s no excuse not to take your favourite notebook with you, you can scribble ideas, mind map or draw what you see without wasting the battery on your phone.
#8 Business cards
You literally never know when you’ll need to hand one out, or who you might bump into. Keeping your business cards with you makes you feel important, too!
OMG! We all know the pain of a pair of great looking but uncomfortable shoes, don’t let yourself be caught out without any protection from nasty rubbing shoes, you can also bring a pair of roll up flats with you if you’re tempted to change shoes.
Perfect for dry lips, but Vaseline has a tonne of other helpful uses too, like removing stains from clothes, soothing dry skin and even for polishing shoes!
