Really Though, Emergency Kits Are A Serious Essential

Hey, hey.

Today I’m sharing what’s in my emergency bag. This is a little, lightweight bag that I keep in my big-ass purse. It’s all the stuff I really don’t actually want to carry but carry anyway because there’s been many times when I’ve been in desperate need of…

Fashion tape:

If you remember the story of when my “girls” fell on to a waiter’s serving tray then you know why I carry fashion tape. Pretty much every girl should carry this. Especially girls with big, eer, boobies. Fashion tape literally saves lives.

Mango shea butter:

This one is fun. I found this at a Korean market after the naked Korean spa. It’s mango shea butter that’s awesome on lips, cracked elbows, or eyelids. Plus it smells like a dream & I feel super ‘in’ because Korean skin care is very 2015. I like this stuff a lot. A lot, a lot.

Eyelash curler:

My ride or die eyelash curler is different than this black one, but the black one was cheap & light. I won’t put on my mascara without an eyelash curler, so yes, this is an emergency essential. Find out why I’m obsessed with my EL curler here.

Teeth whitening pen:

I’M OBSESSED WITH TEETH WHITENING PENS. When I do my makeup I paint my teeth with them. Basically you take the pen’s bristles & paint each tooth super quickly. The paint sits on the teeth for 20 minutes & makes the teeth appear SO much whiter. I’ve been using these forever…totally swear by them!

Pill holder:

I keep a couple multi vitamins, Advil, & three of my herbs in here. This one is tiny & lightweight.

Makeup wipes:

Firstly, did you know every day you can waste up 5 gallons of water by washing your freaking face?!! Such a joke!! These wipes are Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes & they’re AWESOME. Going to sleep with makeup on should be illegal so something that wipes my makeup off in one sweep is ideal. These wipes are packaged so perfect for my 911 kit, all natural ( aka no harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes, or phthalates ), remove dirt/oil/makeup, & found at Walmart. Plus I’m so on board with the whole saving five gallons of water thing ( also for each pledge on Wipe For Water, Neutrogena Naturals will contribute $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000 ).

Oh, & Kristen Bell uses these exact towelettes soooo…

 Tiny scissors:

How many times in my life have I needed scissors? About 10 million…a loose string, stray eyebrow hairs, a Forever21 tag…tiny scissors are a total MUST in an emergency kit.

Coin purse:

This is perfect for keeping $100 dollars in change. I call it ‘my just in case’ fund. You never know when you’ll need a valet tip, parking meter money, &/or a coffee. Plus I run out of gas like nobody’s business. Seriously, I’ve probably run out of gas 200 times in my life…whoops!

Alligator clip x ponytail holders:

We all know I live & die by The Sleep Bun. I use alligator hair clips more than Brandi uses Kim Richards to piss Kyle off. These specific clips are amaze because they don’t leave a nasty-ass bump in your blowout. And ponytail holders are just kind of a duh. I feel like I don’t have to explain, you get it.

Bling Wipes:

I know. We’ve talked about these. Hi! Hello! You may find it strange that I carry Bling Wipes in my 911 kit. BUT BEAR WITH ME, MKAY? Bling Wipes can clean any type of jewelry so my watch, ring, earrings, bracelets are always sparkly new-ish looking.

Other useful items? Spicy cinnamon gum, Wisps ( mini, portable toothbrushes that basically every single person in the world should carry ), this specific top coat ( noooo one likes a nail chip, be real ), organic tampons, a tiny travel sized perfume, & ONE OTHER THING…

I just started carrying McDonald’s gift cards. I got the idea from Gigi, Yolanda’s daughter on Housewives.

We aren’t like friends…lol, she just had this cute idea on Instagram that was RAD: carry around McDonald’s gift cards to pass out to homeless people in your area. That way, they will have a meal whenever they’re hungry. I really loved this idea.

  1. I always have my emergency kit on me.. in a sexy little leopard pouch that doubles as a clutch! makes switching bags 1000x easier too!

    actually ran into a friend shopping the other day who was telling me how her dress for that night she needed tape for and didn’t have time to go get it… I obvi had some in my bag already..

    i LOVE the McDonalds gift card idea though!! definitely adding that!!

  2. I always have a million bobby pins, extra hair ties, a mini tin of Altoids, band-aids and an extra thing of lip balm!


  3. I definitely keep one of these in my car!!! Mascara and a hairbrush, pretty basic for me 🙂

  4. I’ve been trying to use more natural products and recently tried the Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Wipes but OMG the regular and even sensitive ones BURNED my skin and eyes, it was awful. The Neutrogena wipes are seriously the only ones that I can use! I’m in love with the Neutrogena Make-Up Remover (Night Calming) Cleansing Towelettes – in the purple package, but I didn’t realize they had make-up Cleansing Towelettes from their Naturals line too! I can’t wait to try these when I run out of my other pack!
