Let’s be honest, there are moments when shit happens and you can’t do a thing about it. Whether you trip on your fabulous heels and spill something, if your husbands/wifes crazy ex thinks it is a good idea to spill wine in your t-shirt when she sees you out or a total panic attack attacks, we all know that feeling when the nerves set in, the body sweats take over, the migraines cripple you, and your blood sugar simply runs low. For whatever tendencies arise, you know yourself well enough to expect the unexpected at any time, and there is a very simple solution for those moments: make an OH, SHIT KIT.
I highly suggest doing this for your own sanity and peace of mind to guarantee that you will not only always be able to control anything that you typically can’t fix on the fly, but that this will keep you calm so that the anticipation of the possibility of any of said events happening doesn’t make you a wreck.
- The “rushing and I forgot the daily necessities” kit – from deodorant to a sewing kit, extra makeup to tampons, Midol, and more: be prepared. Get a cute zip cosmetic bag and stock up. Keep it in your bag, in your drawer at work, in your car – wherever.
- Fashion malfunction fixers: When a seam busts, a button pops, or coffee happens to fall in your lap instead of into your mouth, these few things can save the day with zero anxiety: safety pins, fashion tape, shout wipes, mini sewing kit. Trust me.
3. Say yes to thr Rxdrugs: Whether it is Rx scripts that you actually do need to whatever OTC pills help you feel like a human again, load up and stock up. Vitamins, allergies, headache relievers – they are like magic wishes from angels when you’re suddenly slacking and know that nothing except for one of these little saviors will help.
4. Add in extras: Whether toothpaste or floss, q-tips, band-aids or whatever, these are the things that no one ever usually has on hand but someone inevitably always needs.
