2. You need toiletries. 

You need to glammed up for the day or for a night out in the French Quarter. Also, you can’t forget the bare necessities that you need to help you feel refreshed, clean and pretty. Get your toiletry bag, read this list, grab those items in there, and then put in your toiletry bag.
