Waterproof band-aids

If you’ve ever endured the torture of a tight shoe, you know just how much these come in handy. The small packaging makes it easier for you to slip one into your clutch without anyone noticing. When shopping for band-aids, don’t automatically go for the cheapest one that might fall off. Waterproof is best!

Hair accessories

Whether it’s bobby pins or hair elastics, having hair on your face during a stressful day is a no-no. So, when life gets in the way, pull your hair away from your face.

Clear nail polish

Winter is in full swing and while we love pairing our skirts and dresses with stylish boots, stockings are needed to keep the cold away. But you know how delicate stockings are. A small tear can turn into a big and embarrassing hole. That’s where clear polish comes in; it stops a small snag in its tracks before it turns into a full- on run.

A sewing kit

Compact sewing kits can save your life! If you’ve had one too many incidents where your clothes got torn, you’ll never leave the house without this.

Lint remover

As much as we love looking trendy with our winter trench coats, lint is real and can be quite annoying. Got a date after work? Go through your coat with a lint brush and you’re good to go.
