A well planned clutch, or purse, is so my jam and also a life saver. As a blogger, I get invited to my fair share of events, and I’ve learned, through trial & error, what I need to have on hand. Also, before we dive in, you’ll be happy to know… we just shot photos of my new hair over the weekend and I’ll be answering all your hair care and styling questions ASAP. I’ve received so many & can’t wait to answer them! Plus, if you don’t have a buffalo plaid clutch?! What are you waiting for!! Mine’s from Banana Republic, last year, so yup it’s sold out, but, I noticed they’re selling the cutest pink gingham one for this year. So tempted to buy that one too!!
Make-up: When it comes to my make-up?! Firstly, I love having my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion with me at all times. I’ll often add a few drops here & there if my skin is looking dry, or my concealer is starting to sink into my fine lines. It helps plump up my skin and gives a dewy / healthy glow. I also love to refresh with a quick swab of bronzer and lipstick. Both of mine are from Nude By Nature and I’m obsessed!!
Hair Must Haves: There’s nothing worse than working a room and starting to feel like my hair is falling flat from a day of humidity and networking. So I’ve learned, to always carry my dry shampoo! It’s a god-send to be able to run to the washroom and add a fresh spritz to my roots for instant lift. My favourite, by the way, is Klorane Dry Shampoo! I also love to carry a few extra elastics, bobby pins (not pictured), because you never know when an event / venue is too hot and you’ll want to throw your hair in a top knot or chignon.
Staying Fresh: I’m never without my breath mints (mine are from Saje), or my perfume. I recently received an entire gift bag of perfume samples and they’ve come in so handy for carrying around. Normally though, I love these roll on ones, and buy mine at Sephora.
The Practical: A clutch, or crossbody bag is my favourite choice for events. I’m able to stay hands free which allows me to shake hands, take photos and most importantly hold my glass of champagne. Haha! And of course, I’m never without my iPhone – it’s absolutely my smart phone of choice and I love, love my Kate Spade confetti case. So cute!! If you’re local? I bought mine at Winners and it was a steal!
Tell me friends, what’s your must have item when going out? Would love to know what you carry in your clutch or purse! And… if you have any questions about blog events, or products mentioned?! Let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer them!! xo
