I love to carry a small bag whenever possible, I feel freer! Especially living in New York, I try to walk to most places and take the subway, so the lighter I can travel on a daily basis the better.
I just love the Nano Montreal for its classic, ladylike style which goes with most things in my wardrobe.
I usually never go anywhere without a lip color and lately I have been loving Aerin Rose Balm Lipstick in Geranium. I received it in a gift bag and discovered it in my drawer recently. I always have to have a lip balm too.
I love La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Lips which always keeps my lips super moisturized, and I stock up at Citi Pharma whenever I am in Paris. If there is room (which there isn’t always), I’ll throw in my Benefit Boi-ing airbrush concealer which has been a staple in my makeup bag for years. And I can’t forget a little brow brush!
I probably have one in every bag.
I’m obsessed with my mini Dior Oblique Saddle wallet, I think it’s the cutest thing! Also, my keys are special to me because they live on a Verdura key ring, given to me as a birthday present years ago by my dear friend Jackie. I would be so sad if I ever misplaced them!
My Other Companions
One essential for city life you won’t find me without is a little bottle of EO lavender hand sanitizer spray that I use multiple times a day. Fisherman’s Friend Spearmints – the most potent mints in my opinion! I can’t seem to find them here, so I always stock up when I am in Europe or ask friends to bring them back for me. I can’t stand when my hands feel dry, especially in the cold winters so I usually will have a bottle of Nuxe Rêve de miel hand cream with me (again, if there is room!). My Citibike key and of course, I need to have my AirPods to be able to tune out with music or a podcast.
