We know you all have that friend who brings “everything but the kitchen sink” with her, every single day.  There’s nothing bad about that and maybe at the same time, she can inspire you to start carrying more of the things you need.  We also know that from time to time, you tend to need something that you never have.  Well, here’s where they come together. We’ve put together a list of beauty essentials to carry, just in case of an emergency. We’re not saying we advocate carrying those enormous handbags, but we also know that when in an emergency, you look to the girl who has one.

Granted, it’s not everyday that you’ll need a safety pin or a Tide To-Go stick but you just never know when a wardrobe malfunction or a stain will strike and we just want you to always be ready.  So cheers to reaching into your bag and pulling out something you know will benefit you.
