Your only rescue to boredom when you are out and you love it. When we stuck in a metro or a cab or maybe in between a stranger party where you at the peak of your boredom and finding a way out. Help yourself with headphones.

Healthy snack

Working through lunch shouldn't happen often, but when it does, it's good to have a filling snack in your purse.

A notebook

I am a constant doodler and idea jotter, and nothing frustrates me more than having an idea or wanting to draw something and having nothing to get it down on.

Yeah, sure, you could use your phone, but there's something magical to me about having a single place for all your most precious creative thoughts and scribbles that you carry around with you just for when inspiration strikes.

Hand sanitizer

I must confess, I carry two different hand sanitizers in my bag. With so many germs around, hand sanitizer is a must have, especially if you are using public transport.

Hair bands/Clutchers

These come to your rescue when you just want to keep your hair off your face. Keep a few elastic hair bands and one hair grasp in your bag always.

Pack of tissues

For winter colds, crying during sad movies, and showing kindness to strangers. You're welcome.

Hairbrush/ Comb

You don't want to be a part of hair disaster, even though you so amazingly dressed up and ready to be that centre of attraction. So, ladies, keep that hairbrush along wherever you go. Trust me your comb is your best friend. Abide by it.

Face wipes

You caught me right, isn't it a refreshing solution to a long tired day. Especially when you are travelling during hot summers and your makeup starts melting out and you sweaty all over, face wipes comes to you at the most rescue. It also gives you an instant mood lift and a refreshing effect all again.

Mouth refreshers

You might feel that you have brushed your teeth thoroughly, tongue have been cleaned and you have used a mouthwash too before stepping out, but is that enough for a long day. If you think so, it's wrong.

With time and irrespective of whether you eat or not eat out, your breath tends to get bad. Imagine you have a meeting lined up in the evening, trust me that bad breath can be a big mistake and risk for your meeting too. So bad breath, a big no. Mouth freshener is a must.
