Getting ready is a must, and it all starts with the things we put inside our bags. We girls cannot live a day without the things we need, especially if it involves the things we need for our jobs. 

In order to get you ready to go to work, here are 5 must-haves to put inside your workbag!


#1: Essentials

Imagine going out the door and forgetting your wallet, phone, and keys? We can never stand a day without all our essentials. These things connect us to our workmates and clients, let us pay our taxi rides, and open doors. Forgetting these things is like forgetting your breakfast. You need both of 'em!

#2: Laptop

A great majority of our work, especially if you work online, is spent on sending emails, research, writing, and such. A laptop is essential to get our work done quickly and finish it just in time. It's also handy and has a bigger screen compared to our phones for easy browsing and typing. 

#3: Planner

You may have our calendars and apps on our phones but studies show that writing things down is more effective in remembering things--especially your schedules. For work, it's vital to have a planner to help you organize things ahead. It also takes down every single thought in our minds for our goals and inspirations. Plus, it does not have to look plain and boring, you can customize our planners however you want it! 

#4: Makeup Kit

To look presentable to our clients during work and for touh-ups throughout the day, we need our makeup kit. Our make-up kits should have all the eyeshadows, blush-ons, and brushes for our work #MOTD. That way, we can look like we haven't been stressing all-out and blooming as ever!

#5: Tumbler

Finally, we should never forget that we need our daily source of strength in the morning--coffee! Coffee keep us wide awake (and sane) for those day's we need an extra push to do our tasks. So for those days at work when you need a cup on-the-go, you'll have your handy tumbler with you to put your coffee in!

In lieu of National Lipstick Day, how about we take a moment (or in this case, an article) to appreciate the beauty of our lip products? Whether they're satin, sheer, matte, or glossy, your lipstick can never be replaced by any other kind of product. Plus, it keeps your lips looking extra fabulous throughout the day!

To know more about lipsticks, let's take a quick a look at how our own beauty girls' lippies have been making them happy!

"The new Matte Lip lipsticks from MAC Cosmetics was released in Singapore today! Some new and some old shades to choose from. Do note that the pigmentation, texture and application varies for each shade. While all of the shades are matte, some shades do not go on as smoothly (nothing some lip balm cannot fix). Will you be getting any shades?"
