A Corporate Girl’s Guide to Summer Essentials

A Corporate Girl’s Guide to Summer Essentials

Summer is here, and it is time to pull out the swimsuits, straw hats, and sunglasses, and get ready to bask under the beachy sun! Of course, there are plenty of jokes about British summers being bleak, and well, some of them may be a tad bit true. But, let us be honest, even the slightest rays of the summer sun are enough to make our day!
Anyways, although British summers may be unpredictable and precarious, your bag’s essentials do not have to be! A pivotal part of keeping your busy life on track when the warmer weather arrives is to pack your purse in a way that it is ready to beat the heat.

Prepare a Summer-ready Purse with these Essentials

  • Sunscreen

    A summer without sunscreen is like an ice cream without the waffle cone or an English breakfast without bacon. Anyways, moving ahead from the gastronomical references, carrying a good-quality sunscreen with SPF 50 or above and PA ++++ rating is something you should consider to keep your skin healthy, glowing, and protected!
    British summers may seem bleak, sometimes, but the sun does not spare anyone. So, whether you are going to the office or a day out with friends, it is crucial to prioritise skin protection and wear sunscreen religiously on the face and body! From delaying ageing to preventing skin cancer, sunscreen is a marvel of modern cosmetology, and something that nobody should sleep on!

  • Reusable Water Bottle

    Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Let us make this the ‘motto’ for summer 2023. During summers, we should drink more water to prevent dehydration, regulate body temperature, facilitate digestion, maintain healthy skin, prevent kidney stones, and so forth.
    For all the corporate girlies who want to stay productive throughout the day and yet feel cool and energetic, drinking sufficient water is a must. According to the US Academics of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, men should consume 3.7 litres of fluids per day, whereas women should consume 2.7 litres of liquids per day!
    And we suggest a reusable water bottle, as without sustainability there is no humanity!

  • Lipstick

    Going to work is incomplete without putting on a vibrant shade of lipstick. And besides, what is summer without some pop of colour on the face! Whether you enjoy nudes, pinks, or reds, having one go-to lipstick inside your office bag can make things a lot easier. If you want to slay, serve, and succeed at work, and do it with style and confidence, just a single swipe of lipstick can do the trick!
