It’s a wrap, my friends. This year is just about over, and while at some points, 2014 was the best of times, it was also the worst of times. Oh, how we hate to see you go – but love to watch you leave.

Chances are you have plans to end this year with a big bang and a wild night out on the town. Your outfit? Check. A pair of shoes that you can drop it low and have no problems picking it back up in? Check. You’ve got the basics covered, but what about everything else?

It’s going to be a long night, girlfriend. That means you—and your purse—have to be locked and loaded for whatever may come your way. Makeup mishaps. Wardrobe malfunctions. Oh, and that kiss…

Don’t forget any of these essentials for your New Year’s Eve survival kit:

1. Clutch:

You will NOT be that girl in the club, hitting everyone with your big-ass purse. Do you really need to carry around so much stuff? The answer is no. Not tonight. There are plenty of cute little handbags that are still big enough for all the following necessities…

2. Cardholder:

Seriously, think small. No need to lug around—and even risk losing—your entire wallet.

3. Oil Blotting Sheets:

Your face will shine bright like the disco ball you’ve been dancing under all night. That makeup will go from looking beat to just exhausted within hours, so be prepared.

4. Sunglasses:

Just keep these bad boys handy for the next day. Trust us, and you’re welcome in advance.

5. Advil:

Sunglasses and Advil. You can’t have one without the other, but you should know this already.

6. Shoe Spot Cushions:

Turn down for what? Not for heels that are doing a serious number on your toes or ankles. Keep these on deck for when that shooting pain in your foot goes from 0 to 100 real freaking quick.

7. Fashion Tape:

Accidents happen. Go ahead, shmoney dance too hard and you’ll lose a button or a seam. No, that’s not a dare—it’s a warning.

8. Perfume:

Keep a travel-sized rollerball of your favorite scent because after said shmoneying, you will get hot and sweaty, but at least you won’t really smell like it.

9. Bobby Pins:

For when you sweat out that blow out after going way too hard when “7/11” comes on. Your updo may become just a plain ol’ do, and those perfectly loose waves will be anything but. Bobby pins can be a quick fix.

10: Energy Bar:

You’re going to want to snack on something when you’re out and there’s no late-night pizza parlor in sight. Your drunk self and stomach will thank you.

11. Portable Phone Charger:

Does NYE even happen if you don’t Instagram it? But, more importantly, how else are you going to summon an Uber at the end of the night?

12. Lipstick:

If it ain’t kiss-proof, it ain’t for you. Lipstick belongs on one place and one place only: on your lips, not his.

13. Lip Balm:

Before you pucker up with that poppin’ red lip, smother up your pecker with a moisturizing lip balm. Chapped lips are a no-no.

14. Mints:

Because, bad breath is also a no-no. Do we really need to explain?

Now you’re really ready to turn up for 2015. Happy New Year!
