Name eight items in your handbag and why you must carry them:
Hand lotion because the desert is dry.

2. My wallet for obvious reasons

3. My phone as it's my communication tool and organizer both professionally and personally.

4. A bag of lip products containing ChapStick, pencils, gloss and lipstick because I'm a lip product junkie and hate having dry lips (again, it's the desert).

5. Hairspray for touch ups and refreshing my "do" because I often have to leave the office to head straight to an evening event..

6. Hand sanitizing wipes because I have a 5-year-old son.

7. Sunglasses because it's almost always sunny in Las Vegas.

8. Business cards because they're still a useful tool even in the age of social media.
