I’ve got a question for you guys.
What are the things you need on a day to day to keep your fashion game strong?
When it comes to a woman’s toolbox, everybody is different. Aside from some of the staples like dress tape, Tylenol (sore or swollen feet from heels = no bueno) and a classic white tee shirt, I’m finding that as my priorities changes, so do my necessities. Whether I’m getting dolled up for a fall wedding, running errands or throwing on the perfect casual meets business #ootd for a day of meetings, there are a few things I keep in constant rotation, not to mention a few extra things I keep in my beauty arsenal.
When Babbleboxx offered up the opportunity to check out a few new items to add to my list, I obviously jumped at the chance. I mean, who doesn’t love new goodies?
If I’m going to be honest, this first product might just be the most important. You can put on all of the red lipstick and glowy highlighter that you want but at the end of the day, I feel the most “glam” when I feel the most clean. Ladies, meet Summer’s Eve. Seriously – have you ever tried any of their products? I am way too obsessed with the Cleansing Cloths for gym days and always pack some of the Coconut Water Cleansing Cloths into my carry on bag for long flights and they are a true game changer. Not only are the cloths easy to use and super discreet but I love the individually wrapped packets. Pop one in your clutch, your gym bag, your back pocket…dealer’s choice.
I also recently started using the Lavender+ Chamomile Cleansing Wash every morning and I just feel so fresh throughout the day. The Cleansing Wash rinses away odor-causing bacteria without leaving the feel of any residue after your shower. So yeah it’s amazing.
I feel like it’s awkward or taboo to talk about feminine hygiene but I’m gonna be real with you guys – I sorta love it. It’s a real thing that we have to experience and deal with on the daily and you can’t beat that clean feeling. Talk about the perfect first step to your inner fashionista.
Speaking of items to add to your vanity, if you wear contacts, this next one is for you.
Fun fact: I’ve worn contacts since I was in fourth grade. I know. So cool (or not). I still can’t believe I’ve been poking myself in the eye by choice for over twenty years. But alas, here we are today. I coudln’t imagine not wearing contacts on the regular. Glasses just seem to get in the way.
If you’re anything like me or looking to switch out your contacts, you have got to try AVEO. AVEO is an affordable monthly subscription service for less than $1 a day — free shipping, plus a free first month (30 pairs) of lenses. Amazing. They offer advanced contact lens technology for crystal-clear HD vision correction, naturally biocompatible all-day hydration, UV protection, and a perfect fit. The best part? It’s super easy to get started – use your existing prescription, or get a new one using your smartphone! I love that they felt lightweight and I can’t wait to try them out again once I run out.
Now that we have our beauty arsenal restocked, it’s time to move on to the necessities like the perfect undergarment. Ladies, let me introduce you to the Sexy Shapewear Strapless Convertible Body Briefer by Maidenform. It is all things sexy and functional and did I mention….sexy?
I don’t know what it is but I truly love wearing a little lingerie under my dresses or jumpsuits. Even if it’s just for me, I just feel so sexy and confident for some reason. This lacey bodysuit not only looks uber feminine on but it helps to smooth the tummy and waist and offers the perfect level of support with underwire bra cups and lightweight push-up pads (a girl needs a little help). The princess seaming detail totally creates that hourglass look and I love that you can remove the straps for lots of options. Versatility is key.
I’ve talked about this a lot in the past but I love sneakers. I even feel pretty confident estimating that I wear them 80% of the time. To the gym, running errands, to a casual meeting or coffee date – I love me some sneaks. Well, let me introduce you to my new faves from Earth Brands Shoes. Y’all know I’m all about some comfortable shoes but these are so much more than that. Ground up comfort, totally on trend fashions and the fact that they plant a tree with every purchase – there is so much to love.
I have been swapping out between the Galivant in Silver and Blaze in Olive. Both pairs look killer with everything from jeans a tee shirt to a casual midi dress + jean jacket combo. But if I’m going to be honest, I could hands down wear the olive pair every day for the rest of my life. They are so COOL. Edgy and chic and just cool. My new best briend and just maybe the best tool in my fashion toolbox.
