  1. Hi Bhawna,
    Your posts are always fascinating in that they are a reminder of of daily life or things we might have forgotten. When I first read the headline of this post, I said to myself, its all about the girlie thing, not for the brothers. But going through I realized it is an article for everyone. For example, the use of a power bank is for everyone, and it is most important because we do most things on our smartphone or mobile devices. In fact, I’m writing this comment from my Motorola smartphone. So the battery is likely to go down anytime, that’s where a power bank comes to play for the rescue. A water bottle is my second take say from this post. It’s import to keep hydrated.

    • Hi Moss,
      Thank you for your kind words. Some of these things are specific to girls but many can be used by boys too. Like you said power bank. Though lip balm and tissue wipes don’t look manly but can be of great use. I am glad you liked this post.
      Have a good one.
