5 things in my personal survival kit

Today I am linking up with Clare for 5 Things Friday!
I was contacted by Alex at Man Crates, asking me to post about what I would put in my personal survival kit. She asked me to list 5 essential items
 Believe it or not, it took awhile to think of what I would actually want/need. (Excluding the obvious- food, friends, family, love, laughter, etc.)
 I thought about the things I use everyday, no matter what, and here they are.

My 5 Must Haves: (in no particular order)


5 things I couldn't do without



1. Loreal Voluminous Mascara.
 I have tried almost every mascara out there, and I always, always come back to this stuff. It's the best!!

2. Cell phone.
 Yes, I would be lost without it.

3. My Bible.
 This is my everything.

4. Journal.
 I love writing and journaling. I love writing stories. I love writing everything and anything that pops in my head. I like reading back to where I was a year ago and comparing that to where I am today.

5. Jose Eber hair straightener.
 This might seem like a strange essential item, but without it, my hair is a MESS. It's naturally wavy and super thick. This is my lifesaver. (Btw, I paid $200 for mine in Las Vegas. It's only $36 on Amazon! I got ripped off!)

If I could have a #6, you all know it would've been ice cream. No doubt about that!
Now go check out Man Crates! They are a new company, with awesome gifts for men. No more searching for the perfect gift for your man, they've done it for you. They have crates for the carnivore, beer lover, gamer, etc.

 Tell me some things that would be in your personal survival kit!

  1. In no specific order, red wine, Tide Stain stick, Clinique Chubby Stick moisturizing lip balm, iphone, and sunglasses. I have thick wavy hair too so I need to look into that hair straightener.

    1. Oh, how could I forget deodorant? That's very important! Almost as important as wine. ;)

      I haven't used my regular camera probably in a couple years. All I use is my Android now, but I love taking pics too.
