I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. You can catch me over here browsing Pinterest and pinning holiday content to my boards nonstop. If we are not Pinterest friends, let’s change that ASAP.
As we enter the heart of “gift-giving” season, I’m reminded once again that I need to make a Christmas list. Clothing and gift cards have always topped my list in years past, however, 2017 will be a bit different. This Christmas, I am listing items that can improve my blog and social media. Improving my blog photography has been on the top of my “to-do” list for quite awhile now. Almost ALL of my photos on social media and the blog are shot on an iPhone because I hate lugging around a bunch of photography equipment. Maybe that is the minimalist in me? I also don’t have the luxury of an “insta-husband” to lug around said photography equipment because mine is most likely studying or flying. #flightschoolrocks
This past month I was given the incredible opportunity to demo and review the iPhone 8+ courtesy of Verizon Wireless. Not only was using this smartphone an incredible experience, I was amazed at the quality of Verizon service compared to my normal service provider. If you’re in the Pensacola area, I HIGHLY recommend switching to Verizon. I absolutely did not want to go back to my old phone and service provider after this demo. I experienced ZERO dropped calls or the dreaded “searching for bars” at inopportune times. Verizon had me SOLD within the first few days.

From my days working in the great city of Washington, D.C., I very quickly learned the importance of having a killer purse emergency kit. One too many times I would trek into Union Station to find pain reliever and other small necessity items during my lunch break. It was in one of those moments that I decided that something needed to change. Days later, a purse emergency kit became a staple in my work tote.
Why is this important for busy women?
My commute to my internship near Capitol Hill involved a bus and two metro trains for a combined one-hour journey most mornings. If I forgot something, I never had time to run back to my place to retrieve the needed item. Most busy women and mothers don’t have time to turn back if you forget something. I thanked myself a million times over once I started carrying an emergency kit with me. Since this small item has made such a positive impact in my life, I’d like to share how I built my kit with my fellow readers.
Emergency kits are perfect for work totes, larger purses, and even diaper bags. Ladies, you could have on the most killer outfit one day but an unexpected splash of from your latte on white trousers will have you wishing that there was a tide pen handy. Here is what I pack in my purse emergency kit:
