NYFW Essentials

When I went to New York Fashion Week, I knew that the bag I carried would be incredibly important. As much as I wanted to carry just a chic little clutch, that just would not cut it - There's too many necessities! Here are some of the things I put in my medium-sized Kate Spade Cove Street Provence bag:

  • Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color: I have never found a lip color that stays on for more than 2+ hours, especially when I'm eating or drinking coffee (which, in my case, is way too often). I always carry whatever lip product I put on in the morning with me for reapplication. I may do a makeup tutorial on my NYFW look at some point if anyone would want to see that, but I went for a full coverage, strobed look witl nude lips. This matte lip color by Maybelline has been gorgeous! I have the color "Nude Flush" but I could see myself getting all of the other colors in this line. 
  • L'Occitane Almond Hand Lotion: I never go anywhere without hand lotion (especially in the winter) and this one by L'Occitane is my favorite! I LOVE the scent and it's just so hydrating without that feeling greasy. 
  • iPhone charger: I have an iPhone 6s and since the new updates were installed, my phone's been dying on me after only a few hours! I try to keep a phone charger ready at all times now. 
  • Canon Rebel T5: I actually kept one lens in my bag (the 18-55mm kit lens) while Brian ket the body and the 50mm lens on his person for photo opportunities. Perks of having an Instagram boyfriend :) 
  • Water bottle: I have been trying to drink more water to make up for my coffee consumption so I try and keep a water bottle handy.
  • Smith's Rosebud Salve: As with my hands, my lips get really chapped and dry in the winter. I've been using this specific brand of lip balm for years and it's my favorite! 
  • Business cards from MOO: I recently made business cards for my blog with the help of my bestie Jen! She designed a log for the business cards and I'm so incredibly happy with them! The back is a pretty blush pink marble and the front has my social media contact info. I handed a few of these out an during the show!
Thanks for reading!

  2. Ahh I really want to go to NYFW someday! And it's so sweet that Brian carries your camera for you haha!

  3. All of the essentials! I agree, those girls who grab teeny clutches are just there for show. I'm glad you had a good time at fashion week, can't wait to see those photos. Also those business cards sound awesome.

  6. Such a pretty bag! I agree, a clutch would not do for me either. I would need a bag for all of the necessities haha. I hope you're having an amazing time!
