This month certainly broke a record. The purchase of my first small black bag. I know, I know, you’d think that would be the most obvious choice but lemme tell you: I got them in all colors of the rainbow except black! Anyhow, that was before this little MANGO bag made its way into my closet (on sale, may I add?). I like its simplicity and it just goes with anything in my closet. It does have a strap but for aesthetic purposes I had to take that off for the picture 😉
So here you have the items I usually pack when hitting town. I always pack a little pouch containing some cash, my ID and a few blister plasters because you never know where those new heels might rub. On a regular day basis I carry a big wallet but for going out I’d rather not carry all my cards and that good stuff.
Then you have the obvious key, phone and hair clip. As I have a ton of hair I sometimes tend to get quite warm in da club (I know.. I’m so cool), so this is great for putting my mane up.
Onto the beauty bits, while the lip color obviously changes with whatever I put on that night, I’ve lately only been using my beloved Sephora Lip Cream. I also carry my MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC30 and MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20 to cover any redness that might shine through after some serious dancing sessions. (Again… so cool). Last but not least, a miniature version of my favorite perfume, just to touch up and smell nice all night long!
