Ambitious women are always on top of their game because they show up to the world prepared. If you’re looking to level up and be successful, it’s always good to carry a set of essentials you can count on wherever you go. 


Here are our recommendations for the top 5 bag essentials you need as an ambitious woman:

1. Wallet

Carrying a wallet in your bag is essential. Aside from carrying your credit cards and cash, your wallet can also have room for carrying important checks and slips that you need to keep separate from the rest of your bag. 


*If you are using a smaller bag then a chic card holder may be a better choice than a large wallet

2. Portable Charger

Being caught with a dead phone can be a nightmare- especially if you do work involving technology! In the event that you find your phone battery draining a lot quicker than you expected, carry a small portable phone charger to use in the event of an emergency.

3. Planner and Executive Pen

An agenda is the key to success. Carry a purse-friendly planner with you to record any appointments, important dates, or notes that you may need to remember. An ambitious woman is mindful of her time, so being able to keep track of everything is key. 


Carry a sleek executive pen along with your planner. You never know when you may need to write something down, and having a quality pen that’s reliable and stylish shows that you’re a woman of “getting things done”.

4. Travel Perfume

A signature scent will help you conquer the world. People know it as part of your personal brand and look forward to it every time you walk in the room. Studies have shown that scent has an influence on your productivity and emotions in certain situations, so choosing a scent that inspires you to focus and be positive is a wonderful choice!


Try carrying a travel perfume or rollerball in your bag to easily touch up your perfume throughout the day.

5. Key Holder

Having a key holder or ring to keep track of your keys is a must. The last thing you want is to be looking for your car keys when you’re in a hurry, so having it organized and easily accessible in your bag makes leaving the house much easier.
