NYC Essentials




This past weekend Brandon and I took off to New York City to take in the Jim Jefferies show and the Raptors vs Nets game. I promise I will tell you all about the experience, but first things first… How do you pack for 48 hours in the city that never sleeps?

Knowing that I would likely have to carry my bag around with me on Sunday, I had to narrow it down to the bare essentials (and I am happy to report that I was able to pack everything into a single Taaluma Tote!). So what exactly did I bring…


  1. Charlotte Tilbury‘s Quick ‘N’ Easy Natural Glowing Look ($95)
    • This kit is great for a 5 minute face and the size is perfect for traveling.
  2. Hillberg & Berk Sparkle Balls ($80)
    • From day to night, add a touch of sparkle to any look.
  3. Canon EOS 6D
  4. Wilfred Free Libre T-Shirt ($20)
  5. Lennox and Lucy custom distressed denim jacket ($60)
  6. Mophie powerstation ($49.95)
    • I had to drop by an Apple store to pick this up on the first day of the trip. This is a true lifesaver when you are relying on your phone for directions.
  7.  belif True Cream Aqua Bomb ($47)
    • Clinically proven to boost hydration levels by 18%, this is a must-have when traveling.
  8. AEO Band T-Shirt ($35)
  9. Two by Vince Camuto Star Sequin Tank ($20)
  10. Fidelity Denim Gwen in Jett ($188)
