1. Smartphone - Every woman on the go needs her smartphone. Doesn’t it solve so many problems for us? Need to find a great restaurant nearby? Yelp! Need to get a car to pick you up wherever you are? Uber! Lost and need to find where you are? Google Maps!  There is almost an app for any imaginable problem out there, shall we say smartphone is second to our best friend?


2. Ban Total Refresh Cooling Wipes – These refreshing wipes come in handy during those hot summer days, especially when you have back to back meetings all over the city. Instead of showing up looking wet like it rained, use a wipe to absorb the sweat. It also cools your skin.


3. Tom Ford Nude Lipstick – Women on the go need a quick touch-up here and there whether in between meetings, after lunch, or before a date. Nude is one of the top classic lipstick colors. It’s simple and perfect for any type of occasion.

4. Altoid Breath Mints – No toothbrush? No toothpaste? No problem. Pop a breath mint whenever you feel the need to. Let’s say you’re on a date. You wouldn’t want to have coffee breath just as you’re about to lean in for a kiss right? It’s not cute.



5. Clinique Foundation – A touch-up is much needed for those days when you’re working late. After half a day, your face is nearly gone. Re-apply and you’re ready to go!

6. Benefit Cosmetics Mascara – No eyelash curler? No problem. Benefit Cosmetics “They’re Real” mascara puts the eyelash curler to shame. It lengthens, curls, volumes, and lifts the lashes giving you those Bette Davis eyes.


7. Tory Burch Roller Ball Perfume – Spritzing yourself in your favorite scent makes you feel refreshed. It can even help relieve a bit of stress and mask body odor. The last thing you want is smelling horrible around people that they want to avoid you.

8. Clarins Hand Cream – We work with our hands all the time, whether it be writing, sketching, typing, washing our hands, assembling products, etc. that we forget to give a little TLC to them. Moisturize before giving someone that firm handshake.

12. MAC Compact Mirror – Having a compact mirror makes the retouching process much easier if you’re in a cab or before you walk into a building.
