3 Essentials You Need In Your Life

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at URI chapter.

Sun Up Sun Down Pouch 2.5L

A fantastic recently purchased item, this 2.5L pouch has served me well. It was made to keep small goods organized, and it’s especially great for holding makeup and skincare when traveling. It is such a great design and it’s a surprisingly spacious pouch that fits in any bag. Yes, that is why I bought THREE of them! They are designed for office, travel, and commute, with a lightweight fabric that is easy to wipe clean. I throw it in my backpack or gym bag to carry my wallet, chapstick, pens, and chargers. Another one I can place in with my carry on when I am traveling, and it holds all the small items I would perpetually lose in my bag otherwise. 


Ultimate Ears Megaboom Bluetooth Speaker

For those beautiful days outside, or relaxing in your room with friends, you need this speaker. There are so many Bluetooth speakers out there, but this one, in particular, is one that I have used since high school. The UE Megaboom is a massive 360-degree wireless Bluetooth speaker that intensifies the sound for a great time, and it’s waterproof! This is so important for the summer and sunny days when you want to take it to the pool or beach. A cool feature about these speakers is that you can wirelessly connect it to any of the other Ultimate Ears speakers, called #partyup. I definitely recommend purchasing this speaker because it is durable and has great quality of sound!

Ok, before you call me a VSCO girl, here me out. Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your body. Therefore, it is essential for you to get a water bottle that keeps your water at the temperature you want— whether that is cold or hot. Reduce the amount of plastic you use and get a reusable water bottle, such as a Hydroflask. The great thing about Hydroflasks is that they are designed for any type of adventure, accommodating both portability and comfort. Since they have so many different sizes, colors, and mouth widths, it will be so difficult to make a decision! I customized mine for a few extra dollars and I am in love with it!
