How to power ESP8266 and a circuit that requires 5v, through a single battery? Answered

I am currently working on a wearables project that has an ESP8266 module and a circuit that requires 5v. How can power it through a common battery? I thought of using a 3v coin cell and a HT7750 , but is it right? I want to use minimal components (just to keep its size small) so i would like to use ICs. Also what kind of battery should I use a coin cell/LiPo/one from cell phones(li-ion)?And what kind of recharge system should i use?
The schematic is given below.(though it is written 6v but 5v is just fine I tested it with 5v and arduino)

Why not use a lipo, 2 cell so 7 volts and a voltage regulator to get your 5 volts?

Your coin cell may not last longd depending on the current drawen.

Or a single cell lipo with a boost to get 5 volts, lots of ready made boosters available for the RC world.

Hobbyking for example.

Your question asks for 5V, not 3.3. You could use an LDO for the 3.3V, off the 5, depending on the current draw of the ESP8266
