Technically, a dopp kit is more of a men's shaving bag, but we like the sound of it and it contains important grooming items for on-the-go use. We each have a cute little dopp kit that sits with our stuff and is transferred from bag to bag to take for touch ups when we're out and about.
Your dopp kit can contain any number of things. Andrea's has a little mirror, two lipsticks (one bold, one sheer), a hair clip, some bobby pins, a lip balm, and mini tweezers. Angela totes around a lipstick, lip balm, a mini mascara, band-aids and dental floss. The point is that you can leave the house and have the basics of what you need within reach so you're ready for anything.
It's easy to make your own, and it's likely that you have some of the items you'd put in your personal dopp kit floating around in your purse already. Simply grab a little pouch with a zipper and stash it all inside. This way, everything is together and you'll never find yourself at work looking for an office elastic (gah!) to pull your hair off your neck, or pinching your cheeks before a meeting, or rooting around your big ol' bag for a cracked bronzer and no brush. Best thing is, when you're invited to after work drinks, you'll be ready with a quick trip to the loo to freshen up.
