5 Essentials to Keep in Your Work Bag

Corinne Sinesi | January 22, 2019 | Lifestyle

To keep yourself calm and collected from nine-to-five, you probably need to stuff your purse with everything from a laptop to a hidden supply of chocolate. Make your grueling work hours a little easier on yourself by stashing these essentials in your everyday bag.

Your tote may be cute, but lugging it across the street to the coffee shop isn’t. Instead, throw a wristlet into your bag for easy on-the-go purchases.

The LARQ bottle

Staying hydrated is a must while at work, but cleaning your water bottle is never fun. For a water bottle that cleans itself, look to LARQ, a rechargeable vessel that can purify tap water with the push of a button. This button activates a UV-C LED light that kills 99.99 percent of bacteria and odors in the water, while cleaning the bottle, too. Voila!

Queen of Hungary Mist

The Queen of Hungary Mist is a refreshing spray that rejuvenates your skin thanks to orange blossom, rose, sage water, and apple pectin. Natural, pure, and healing, the mist was inspired by the first recorded perfume made for Queen Elizabeth of Hungary in the 14th century. Essentially, the refreshing mist is fit for a queen like you.
