Shay Mitchell (Emily) may play a girl on the verge of an emotional breakdown on Pretty Little Liars, but judging from the contents of her bag, she’s cool, calm, and collected everywhere she goes.

Shay recently showed Us Weekly what she carries in her American Eagle shoulder bag, and the most surprising item is a calming crystal that Shay says is always with her. "I got it before I went on The View and I was so nervous!" she says. "Now I always have one in my purse because it keeps me grounded and makes me feel better."

Shay also makes sure she has Vaseline “because it’s so multi-purpose. You can use it for lip gloss, cuticle cream or moisturizer,” and Listerine Strips, because she hates seeing people chewing gum on red carpets.

Check out the rest of Shay’s must-haves here. And remember: if you feel like you’re losing it, just follow Shay’s lead and get yourself a calming crystal!
