"I always have two extra pairs of Victoria's Secret lace thongs ($12.50, with me at all times. My mother said to never leave the house without clean underwear. You never know where you're going to go!"

"A toothbrush and Crest toothpaste ($0.99, are essential. You always have to have fresh breath and teeth."

"I love flip-flops ($70, I keep mine together in my bag with a rubber band and throw them on when my feet hurt."

"The reading glasses I carry are zebra-print. I'm losing my eyesight, but I never lose these glasses because they're so easy for me to spot."

"I carry at least five neutral lip glosses. I also have Laura Mercier bronzer ($32, on me. I apply it with a huge brush. Bigger is better!"
