It’s officially back-to-work season, and unless you’re a high-flying cosmopolitan woman who makes money the right way – with a laptop in hand, in her PJs – or you’re somehow still on holiday in the South of France, it’s time to saddle up the horse and hop back on!

If you’re anything like me (which isn’t necessarily a good plan), you’re looking for any inspiration to get up and go in the morning – whether that’s an adorable new tote or a funky little notepad to put a pep in your step.

So, here is a list of absolute essentials we believe the Schick woman needs to kick off the New Year in style!

A Smartphone. There’s almost no getting around having a Smartphone, these days. How do you monitor your personal online brand, check your emails and conduct a dozen bank transfers a minute, all at the same time? It’s no longer a luxury; a Smartphone is essential to staying on top of the things in your every day life. So, if you happen to be without one, it’s time to invest!

A notebook (preferably a pretty, perky one). Maybe I’m just old-school, but writing stuff down on a piece of paper beats typing it in on my iPhone ANY day. And there’s nothing better than a notebook that doubles as a really-pretty-to-look-at thing in my bag as well. Stay organised this New Year by writing out your to-do lists, goals for the year, etc. in a good ol’ pad.

Business cards. Opportunities never announce themselves; they just kind of turn up on a Wednesday afternoon at 2:12pm, when you bump into someone who could offer you one that might just change your life. That’s why having and carrying your business cards in your purse is not a suggestion; it’s an absolute necessity.

Mobile wi-fi. I’m a practical working girl, alright? That means I sometimes have to read emails quickly whilst waiting for the traffic light to turn green, or update my LinkedIn profile while I get a slice of post-work-therapy (that’s cake, to the layman). Basically, I NEED ACCESS TO THE BIG, BAD WEB ALL THE TIME. In an increasingly digital world, so do you.

A pop of colour. For your lips, that is. Post-work drinks with the girls? You’re ready! The Bae picking you up for a bite of dinner? You’ve got this. You know what they say: All you need in life is a little lipstick and a lot of coffee. No, really, that’s a saying.

Mobile, laptop, everything charger. We tend to take pride in the fact that our phones can do a million things at the same time, but boy, does that require a lot of power juicing. Leave the awkward excuses behind in 2016, and make your charger your best-est buddy!

Your favourite scent. Nothing puts a pep in your step better than smelling like your favourite floral, vanilla or woody scent – so, don’t leave home without it! PLUS, the compliments at work will just keep flooding in!
