People claim their second home is their job.Depending where you work, you try to decorate your desk or locker to make sure the second home aligns with your everyday essentials.I, on the other hand, claim my purse as my second home.As a fashion blogger on the go, I want to make sure my home away from home is fully stock with my needs.
I suggest an everyday bag to be black or brown; the hues are easy to match with whatever you decide to wear that day.A great example is my two toned Charming Charlie‘s oversize bag.The shape of the bag is ideal for me because I literally could fill my life with it if I needed to.The purse itself even comes with a pull out clutch which makes organizing easy.First things first let’s discuss what I will never leave the house without:
Black Shades-If you read my post “SUNGLASSES SEASON IS HERE! FIND THE BEST SHADES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE” you will know how crucial it is to wear sunnies even after the summer.
Wearing your sunnies will help deter the tiny wrinkles around your eyes.The reason for the small lines appearing around your eyes is when you spend too much time in the sun.As an additional bonus sunglasses helps the white in your eye, remain the same.If you go outside without eyewear, the sun can cause a burning sensation to the eyes.Within time, they become red and irritated.Before you put on your sunnies, make sure they fit your face properly.
DSLR Camera– I always like to be prepared to shoot for last minute events, living in New York City my days never goes as planned.Another reason why I never leave the house without my DSLR camera is a habit of looking for things that inspire me.For inspiration other than watching movies and reading books, roaming around the city is a weekly practice. Taking photos of architecture, street art, the park, and mannequins in the window display helps me come up with ideas for the blog and what to wear the next day.
Keys–I would be lying if I said, ” I never leave the house without my keys.”However, is a good 90%of the time I do.I’m working on the other 10% by making a copy of my keys and leaving it in my day job (West Point Home, a fashion bedding production company)
Business Card Holder–To become a successful fashion blogger or a successful blogger in general networking is the key.A business card is a significant representation of yourself, and you want to convey a positive image when you meet like minded individuals.If you’re digging through your oversized bag trying to find your card it can read off as messy and even worse you don’t care about yourself, brand or work.A business card holder is the best solution for a great first impression.
As my creative ideas come to me at random, I like to be prepared for future blog posts other than snapping eye candy candids.My writing necessities are:
Ipad-You know that feeling when your phone is dead, and you believe it is the end of the world.I bet you do, and usually, you have an adaptor for backup.I tried having an adaptor, and I always found myself losing them so instead, I carry an Ipad.I solely use it to type up my blog posts; it helps the memory from running low.The memory is always full on my laptop and phone.
Leather Blogging Book-My love for leather books started as a high schooler writing poetry.As I transcended into a fashion blogger, my love for them never decreased.The different notes I keep in my blogging book is a list of descriptive words, headline formulas for my blog, Twitter chat parties, a list of fashion blogger websites, my monthly blog stats and so much more.
Planner-My friends hate it when I say, “let me check my planner ” before hanging out with them. Similar to scheduling social media posts, I need the planner to help arrange my life. With the aid of a planner, it helps me stay on track.I don’t miss a meeting with a boutique owner or my dentist appointment, and it makes me think how I ever lived without it.
The Quill-My favorite quote in the world is, the pen is mightier than the sword. The quote originated in 1621.In the early 1600’s quill pens were used for writing that why I favor my crimson quill pen.
A girl has to take care of herself.Other than drinking eight glasses of water and eating your fruit and veggies you have to make sure you have to stay on top of your health in other departments as well.
Multivitamins Gummies For Woman-Vitamins for adults is similar to being a big kid at heart; it also helps me not forget to take them.I look forward to taking my vitamins in the morning.My favorite gummies are from Duane Reade pharmacy. Every month there is a two for the price of one special.
Floss-I hate it when I have a bite to eat at the restaurant, and I can’t brush my teeth right away a floss comes in handy.
Deodorant x Perfume x Lotion=So fresh and So clean– When you smell good you feel good. I swear by Suave 24 Hour Everlasting Sunshine deodorant. I also love Sephora’s roll on perfume my favorite is Marc Jacobs Daisy Eu So Fresh.The lotion I use is my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works.The scent is Japanese Cherry Blossom.
Zzzquil-Not only am I fashion blogger I freelance, and I have a full-time job.It takes a lot for me to commit to sleep.I always stress about making a deadline and fear that I won’t make it. Tight deadlines amount to getting a max of three hours of sleep on a regular basis.The number of hours I sleep is clearly unhealthy. I tried ZZZquil for testing purposes from Influenster.Now I keep a pack of Zzzquil in my bag for days when I need to make sure a good night rest is called for. Is a reminder to help me build energy to take on the pending projects I have.
Last but not least things I use to appear flawless as possible.
Curl Cream-I tend not to look at the weather when I head out. A hint of rain or humidity,my hair tend to fritz.A few drops of Marc Anthony’s Strictly Curl Cream helps tame my poof.
Foundation+Contour+Mac Lipstick=♥-For the days I’m running late to work, and I walk out the house looking like a lost puppy, I trust two makeup items.One is Maybelline’s SuperStay Better Skin Foundation and the second one is Rimmel London’s Kate Sculpting Kit.I like to keep a red lip to brighten up my mood on a bad day.Mac Ruby Woo is my mood changer.
Makeup Bag-I got my red lipstick makeup bag from a grand opening of NYX cosmetics store event in Brooklyn.
Magazine Queen–For many fashion addicts we like to stay in the know of latest trends, so I like to flip through the typical fashion mags.I also like to branch out and read other editorials relating to women; Self magazine is one of them.
