We are a fast-paced generation, living in a fast-paced world and there are a few things a girl who’s constantly on the move shouldn’t be without. If there’s ever a thing that us MissMalini girls know a thing or two about (other than cupcakes and fashion)  it’s this. Let’s get right to it, shall we?

A smart jacket in a basic colour or even a bright one is a fool-proof way to dress up a outfit and make it look smart. Plus there’s an added bonus of being able to keep warm when you need it. Remember, we don’t always have significant others to hug us.

What would we be without our morning cup of coffee? Non-functional. We’d be non-functional. This is why it is absolutely essential to have your own travel mug that you can carry with you wherever you go. You can pick one to match your style (like above), or if paper cups are more your vibe, atleast make a style statement! (like below)

Makeup essentials

We cannot stress this enough. ALWAYS. CARRY. MAKEUP. You never know when you’re going to need a touch up ’cause the love of your life or your next boss could be just around the corner. Products like a lip tint, lip balm, blotting sheets, mascara and kajal go a long way.

But nothing is more important than a good, weightless foundation. It’s important that you opt for a light foundation, especially because of our insanely hot and humid climate. After all, a good foundation is the basis of everything! (Yes, pun totally intended.)

A portable charging station

No one wants this. We absolutely dread this moment. And a simple way to avoid it is to invest in a portable phone charger so that you never run out of juice. Yes, it is an investment, trust us!

It might seem small and insignificant, but hair ties and bobby pins will save your life when you’re having a bad hair day. And if you are constantly on the move like us, those days will come, if they haven’t already.

A sense of humour

Always remember: The only way to get through the manic pace that life is set at is to go at it armed with some sass and a sense of humour. For real, this is sage advice.

There you have it girls. These are the essentials! Take it or leave it.
