- Don’t use the spare ponytail holder when…. you’re too lazy to go upstairs.
- USE the spare ponytail holder when…. you just got stuck in a torrential downpour and your hair is a mess and will frizz the second it starts drying.
How many times do you say, “Oh my gosh, I really wish I had a _______ right now!!!” Or “AH!!! I need a _________ RIGHT now!!!”
It is the absolute worst feeling to need something super simple, and yet not have it on you. Walking back from practice one morning, the boys were saying how they didn’t understand how girls survive without pockets. But they forgot about the magic of purses. Being able to reach down into the dark abyss of a Longchamp and find a granola bar or a chapstick etc. Really, anything is fair game when it comes to hidden gems in purses (think Mary Poppins).
My “OMG I wish I had a…” Kit is a little Vineyard Vines canvas clutch. The size is perfect enough to switch from purse to purse, and it’s light in color so it’s easier to spot in the dark purse.
The absolute true success of a “OMG I wish I had a….” Kit is to pretend like it absolutely does NOT exist. That way, it remains fully stocked when there is a real emergency. Here’s an example
What to put in your kit:
Twenty dollar bill***
Faux pearl earrings
Mini nail file
A blemish stick
Pill case (stocked with Excedrin migraine)
*** That J. Crew headband does NOT count as an emergency.
Did I leave anything out? What do you keep in your “OMG I wish I had a…” Kit?
