Got a call from a girlfriend to go out to a trendy bar for drinks but totally didn’t plan for it? Your man calls you to tell you he got a baby sitter and is taking you out right after work? In a spot, every girl should have the tools to put together a face for a night on the town or in the very least have what’s needed to just get by. Take a look at what is in my bag for a bind taking into consideration that I don’t carry small bags (wink wink)…
Your skin’s health is precious; everyone will say so. For an impromptu day in the sun or for regular use, protect your skin using the newest from Neutrogena.

Even though it is summer, I still cannot seem to keep my hands hydrated at all times . I use and keep with me Burt’s Bees Shea Butter Hand Creme, available in stores and online, $12.99 to keep my hands soft and smelling sweet. I can’t hold hands with my man without it! Try other Burt’s Bees products as well. They are simply lovely, of good quality and all have pretty great natural fragrances.
A quick switch from day to evening can be as simple as a great mascara. I use and adore Maybelline Colossial Volume Express Mascara, in glam black, in stores and online, $6.99, because I have movie star eyelashes in a minute flat…. and to any outsider I look like I planned my make-up in advance.
Never fear for freshening your complexion either… I always carry Almay Clear Complexion Pressed Powder, in stores and online, $12.99 because it is perfect for concealing those pesky blemishes that were hard enough to cover when you left in the morning. It keeps me feeling a little better about my face even if my face is fighting me tooth and nail.

scunci Salon Bobby Pins are a necessity for me and pretty much any girl I know who has hair on her head. They are super affordable and now come in a really convenient travel case so that you don’t end up with a purse full of bobby pins floating around. I have been caught in a bad hair day that could only be tamed by a trip to the bathroom with my bobby pins and tap water. Available in stores and online, $2.99
