How do you beautify your driver’s seat with comfort for your long drives so that you can protect your shoulders? Get a seat belt cover or shoulder pad of course! Seat belt covers are cushions that are soft and comfortable that enhance safety and comfort.

You can find one online in a variety of designs/colours that suit your taste! Some are inexpensive too. However, we recommend the furry ones because they look cute and warm at the same time.

Rubber Car Floor Mats

Car floor mats are a major essential, especially for women who are clean freaks. Although it is a known fact that your car floor will never ever be clean while driving, adding a rubber floor mat certainly helps prevent it from being dirty.

We recommend rubber floor mats over the 3M floor mats because we find them easier to clean. Sometimes, you’ll spot little specs of dirt in between the 3M floor mats and it’ll take an eternity to clean them. You know what we mean if you’ve ever owned one.

Good quality rubber floor mats are durable and are all-weather as well so they are bound to keep the overall surface of the car floor clean for your drive ladies.

Women wearing sunglasses while driving is a major statement. You’re looking both cool and protecting your eyes from the sun while driving. Wearing sunglasses just gives a huge sense of confidence for some people and we can’t really give you the best recommendations for sunglasses as they can go from cheap to expensive depending on your budget.

But one thing’s for sure, they are a must-have during the early morning drive to work or for the drive back home in the evening.

Car Sun Visor Mirror

Before getting out of the car, it is a natural instinct to check oneself and ensure we look presentable. No loose strands of hair and ensure your make-up is on point. This is where a car sun visor mirror comes into place.

There are even some mirrors with added lights on them, how cool is that! You should definitely have the sun visor mirror labelled as essential in your car.
