Desk Essentials

Emergencies Come Up…

(if you’re me, they come up often…)

I’ve compiled a list of things that I keep on me AT ALL TIMES (let’s be honest – most times… CONSTANT MESS!) to handle all of life’s little emergencies.

The Minimergency Kit
This bad boy has EVERYTHING. See all contents in photo below. But like bandaid, sewing kit, safety pins, earring backs, deodorant, stain remover, mouth wash, nail file, Advil. YOU NAME IT! I’ve created my own version of this, but it’s perfect and super tiny so it fits right in your bag!


Sugar Packets
(for the true T1 diabetic betch… never know when you may need a boost!)

WetOnes Wipes
… and they have SO MANY USES.

Dry Shampoo
Saving grace for so many evenings where your hair does not look so nice after a day of work, weather, etc. I’m newly obsessed with dry shampoo, specifically Klorane (they do it so well).

Nail Polish Remover & Clear Nail Polish
Travel size so it doesn’t take up space and because chipped manicures are fucking disgusting. I’d rather be bare than have a gross chipped mani.

I mean, obviously. Besides typical use – these little suckers (pun) can be used with nail polish remover when you don’t have a cotton ball or tissue, or plug up a nose bleed, options are legit endless — great tool!

Spare Set of Tights
Black, obv. Don’t really need get in to the gradation of the tights…

Small travel packs (they come in really adorable styles now so you don’t look like your grandmother…)

Get a mini size of your favorite from a sample counter in the mall. Most brands sell small travel sizes. Add mascara to a no-makeup face and you look a million times more dressed up!

Oatmeal or Protein Bar
Betches need to eat. Protein-full items keep you more full for a longer period of time. Quest Bars are a favorite. So are KIND bars.

Can’t even say how many times a pair of tweezers has come in handy. To perfect an eyebrow, get out a splinter, any other random medical issue I may be having.

Tea Bag
Caffeine boost coming right up…

Deo / Eye Makeup Remover
for your BO! And quick clean-ups. Makeup remover gets pen off skin.

Travel Size Parfum
Parfum lasts longer and is stronger than eau de toilette, FYI. Little bit goes a long way – perfect and small.

I’m basically describing myself to be an old lady with a huge bag overflowing with crap… whatever.

All things every betch needs in her desk drawer at work or forever hold her peace.
