9 “Girly” Things I CAN’T Live Without (Not Ashamed To Admit It)
Anasuya Ray Chaudhuri
You know what they say - that sometimes us ladies are just too "girly" to handle. But guess what? I'm a girl, and I'm not embarrassed about it. Nuh-uh-uh. And there are some things I just CAN'T live without. #SorryNotSorry
First thing in the morning. So that I can deal with that pesky thing on my chin or brow before I start my day. BATTLE WON with self, now I can plot to conquer the rest of the world.
2. My hair-tie (around my wrist!!)
I HAVE to have it. I have to, have to, have to. Because what if I need to tie up my hair at some point? On days I leave home without it, I can. not. function!! Until someone else kindly gives me one that I can wear as proudly as a 500-carat diamond.
3. A BUNCH of earrings
And by that I don't mean an earring collection at home, but in my bag. With me, all day long. And at least 5 pairs at all times. Some danglers, some studs, some in between. WHAT if I suddenly feel like dressing up in the middle of the day? Even if I'm in shorts and a tee?
4. Taylor Swift, Adele and Bollywood dance numbers on my phone to play in the morning
'Coz I need to shake my booty before I can shake up the world!
5. Flats - everywhere!
Fuzzy, fluffy bedroom slippers at home. My-feet-need-a-breather hawai chappals in office. Cheat pair in my bag when I'm all dressed up and heading to a party. A girl needs to be comfortable wherever she is in life!
6. Lozenges. Or, at the very least, mint.
Because a girl needs to nibble on something or the other through the day to keep calm and hang on to her temper while dealing with the world. Plus, it's a great way to keep those itchy throat woes at bay. Win-win!
7. Side pillows!
Because cuddling when I sleep is an absolute necessity. And I would rather not depend on a man being present for my creature comforts.
8. At least 5 different shades of lipstick at all times
I'm moody. And even if I keep my mouth shut, at least the colour of my lips should tell the world where I am at. Especially when it's bright red and #DoNotMessWithMe mode is on.
9. The POPxo app
Because, DUH. How else am I going to get my daily fix of all things "girly"?! ;-)
