I am so excited to write this post and more importantly I’m excited that this idea came to me through Sheryl at How to Make a Life. One of my favorite things about my blogging groups is all the inspiration that comes out of them–this one in particularly.

10 things every woman should have:

  1. a great pair of sweats–I know this sounds kinda crazy but hear me out. I’m not talking about the ratty sweat pants we all have, I’m talking about a pair that you could run to the store in without looking like a homeless person. I’m seriously addicted to the PINK line at Victoria’s Secret–those are some seriously cute sweats!
  2. a song for karaoke–I don’t want to hear that you can’t sing, everyone can sing something if it’s in their wheel house. I love having a song that I can rock and feel slightly comfortable with. My go-to karaoke song is “Gives You Hell” -All American Rejects!
  3. a quote to live by–I love quotes so much and use them throughout my therapy groups M-F. My favorite quote to live byΒ is “stop living life in the past lane”.
  4. a Netflix account–I hope that everyone has access to Netflix because if you don’t, you are seriously missing out! My favorite show to binge watch is Pretty Little Liars!
  5. a quality makeup collection–I’m all for saving money, but if you’re going to spend money on something, please let it be makeup. You are really paying for quality when it comes to makeup, it’s important to get your moneys worth!
  6. cute pajamas–I’ve heard it so many times, but why don’t people want to look cute at bedtime? Even if you’re going to bed alone, look cute for yourself, dammit!
  7. a great pair of panties–or more than a pair. I love spending money on underwear because it can make or break an outfit, seriously!
  8. a dressy rain coat–I get so many compliments on my Michael Kors rain jacket/trench coat, it really is a must for work and on weekends when I am not digging my North Face.
  9. a signature scent–Perfume is so much fun to buy! I love trying new stuff but almost always have that one perfume that “makes me, me”! My go-to is Coach Poppy!
  10. a friend they can call–As woman we tend to have friends but do we have a friend we can call at all times of the day? I firiggen’ hope so!! I don’t have a ton of close female friends but I do have at least two I could call no matter what!

As I was writing this list it really occurred to me that being a female is pretty friggen’ awesome! If you’re interested in trying out this post, go for it, but let me know! I’d love to read your ten things!


xoxo Lindsay

    The country where I live finally got Netflix some months ago but I haven’t signed up for it yet–the internet at my house can’t really handle streaming. When I upgrade my internet, I’ll definitely consider Netflix!

    This is such a fun list! I agree with so many of these – a go to karaoke song is definitely a must. Mine is What’s Up by Four Non Blondes. πŸ™‚

    #10 is crucial. Especially at this stage of my life. We moved out to a rural town and I rely so heavily on my phone calls with my friends! I miss them!

    I think you might be my new best friend. This is exactly what I think every woman should have too. I love Pretty Little Liars? Are you up to date on this season? It is the last season. sad.
    Oh and I firmly believe in spending a little extra money to get a quality makeup collection. I was never like this but then about 2-3 years ago I decided I deserved it so I splurged. It is so worth it to me and I only need to restock once a year.
    Great post!!

    Oh I love this list so much–and Sheryl. She’s a wonderful blogger, isn’t she?

    I totally agree re: sweatpants and cute pajamas. I think for a while I was so thrifty with my purchases but I’ve learned that splurging on a few high-quality pieces makes a big difference! Thanks for sharing this, may have to borrow the idea myself πŸ™‚

      I think we should be looking cute when we go to bed, who cares if we sleep alone or have been married for x amount of years!

    This is a great idea for a post! I’m with you on the sweats I keep meaning to invest in some that are comfy for lounging around in but would still look good if I had to pop
    To the shops. I really need to catch up on pretty little liars! Everyone is watching these final episodes and I’m still on season 3! I’m trying to avoid any spoilers lol

    Love these posts. So fun! I agree about the panty thing! Find a pair, style or brand that you love!

    Yes! Yes! Yes! To all of these!! I’m thinking we could compile a top 50 list. So glad I could provide some inspiration!
