NYC Fashion Week Must-Haves



I can't believe it's already been over a week since we went on our couples getaway trip to New York City! We had an amazing time, and we loved getting to tour museums, go to the US Open, cycle through Central Park and attend a Broadway show! It really was a great adventure and we were so thankful that my mom was able to fly out from California to visit and watch our girls for us, while we went gallivanting around NYC!

One thing Kyle & I both loved about our trip were the breath-taking views. We both love architecture & really even just the rich character on old buildings fills me with excitement and awe, so it was a real treat to see so much beauty all around us {sometimes in the most unexpected places}. 
Before we left, everyone gave us advice & one of the most useful was: to pack super comfy shoes, because New York is a walking-city. I am so glad I listened to their sound advice, because just in our first day there we walked just over nine miles! I think this tip totally saved my feet {these were the sandals I wore for 80% of our trip}! 

Our second day, we tried to give our feet some rest and spend the majority of our time perusing the city on bikes. This was more than a little dangerous at times with all the Native New Yorkers weaving in & out of traffic but we loved every second of it {plus, it was a much more enjoyable way to explore the city because you had much fewer crowds}!

Even though we drove to NYC (and had ample space in our trunk), I really tried to only pack the bare essentials plus a few essential upgrades that would make me feel fashionably fearless and just all around more confident. 
Alright, are you ready for my stylish must-haves in honor of Fashion Week ?

1. Dove Advance Care Antiperspirant- I make it a habit to always pack this in my bag, just in case my mommy brain kicks in and I completely forget to put some on in the morning! Nothing will make me more self-conscious than icky body odor! 
2. Ardell Black Wispies Eye Lashes- I've wanted to try on natural looking beautiful, lightweight lashes for ages, and thought NYC was the perfect place to give them a test-drive. These lashes are waterproof, reusable and very comfortable to wear plus a breeze to apply.
3. Binaca breath spray-I first tried this on a dare in junior high, and I've been hooked by this ever since! It is super effective for eliminating bad odor and it leaves you with a great fresh minty flavor.
4. GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment- This is easily the most moisturizing mask I've ever tried. My skin tends to want to breakout when traveling, and I've found this to save me when I apply it at night. My skin always feels softer and supple after using this. 
5.  EOS Coconut Milk lip balm, this is one of my all time favorites for keeping my lips moist, plus the scent is great too!
6. Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture- These are really perfect for any situation! I packed these in various sizes for our road trip because Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture is a must for keeping you clean-so you can feel confident enough to strut your stuff, whether down the runway, the red carpet or the city streets!

Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture is designed to clean better, so you’re clean & confident enough to go commando {ya know, if that's your thing} :)!
Alright, now It's your turn! I want to hear your stylish favorites!
