Guess what time it is? New York Fashion Week! Fashion month is here once again. Before you get excited remember, Fashion Week is not always fun, fun, fun. For some of us there a little bit of work. Even though there is some work involved, there are lots of elements of fun. It’s a catch 22.
When I am in New York for Fashion Week, I carry 5 things around with me to keep me alive, hydrated and feeling like a million bucks. I am usually running to and from shows to presentations and going to meetings. But once I have these 5 things, I know I will make it through the day!
Here is my list of the 5 essentials to get me through New York Fashion Week.
A Cellphone Battery Pack
There is nothing worse than have a dead phone midday during New York fashion week. Imagine missing the perfect selfie with your favorite fashion editor. Major bummer. This is why I keep a charged battery pack with me at all times. Keyword “Charged”. An extra battery pack has all of the extra power I need to have my phone pumped up and ready to shoot looks from the runway and to take great selfies. Make sure you get a battery pack asap, charge it up and throw it in the bag.
Purell Anti-bacterial Wipes
Nothing is worse than having dirty hands especially when you are trying to grab a quick croissant during NYFW. Honestly, this is one of the ways I get sick. I may take the chance and eat something without washing my hands. Gross. I know. To help me in the process, I always keep a pack of Purell Wipes in my bag to clean my hands before eating my favorite snack. You maybe on the go and tempted to eat before cleaning your hands. STOP. Purell your hands and enjoy.
Emergen-C Vitamin Packs
This is my go to product during the winter months and even in the somewhat warm city of San Francisco. Emergen-C is a powder you can mix with water to protect your immune system. It gives you a boost of vitamin C, D, B and electrolytes to keep you healthy and happy during one of the most fashionable months of the year. Emergen- c comes in a few flavors but orange is my favorite.
Before I head out for the day, I always open up a pack and throw it in my water. The results are a happy and healthy Aquila.
A Waterbottle or Bottles of Water
Drink. Your. Water. You may be tempted to skip the water and drink coffee. Majo no no. Drink as much water as you can. Water will make you feel alive, it will keep you hydrated and is super healthy. New York is cold during February shows but inside the actual shows are extremely hot. Keep a bottle of water with you to keep you cool and full of H20.
Neutrogenia Makeup Remover Wipes
After a long day of shows, presentations and events who wants to take off their makeup? I do! I never sleep in my makeup. That would be gross. I always take my makeup off, exfoliate, rinse, tone and moisturize. It is a must. If you can’t go through the whole process, at least use a makeup wipe to take it all off. I use the Neutrogena facewipes in the blue pack. The blue pack is the best!
That is it y’all. Those are my must have products during NYFW. They are all essentials. Even if you are not going to NYFW, these are great supplies to have in your handbag to keep you beautiful, healthy and prepared for anything.
Happy New York Fashion Week.
