i love knowing what people pack in their bags. over the years i've developed a list of must haves that are always on-hand before i leave the house. here a couple things and tips that i absolutely love, and i'm sure you will too!

i cannot recommend these two lip products enough! i absolutely love maybelline baby lips. they come in a variety of colors and flavors and do exactly what they say - make you have the softest baby lips!! i find myself wearing lipstick less often now as these moisturize perfectly while adding a little pop of color.

when i want something a little bolder, i opt for sephora's line of lip stains. they are right up there with the best of the best lip products and can last for hours! i've made it through so many cocktails and dinners without a single reapplication.

after every meal i like to finish with a classic altoid and make sure my hands are soft and renewed. bliss body butter is my lotion of choice. it's rich, thick and silky smooth and has the greatest lemon scent!

i like to keep a travel sized perfume on me for days where i'm not feeling too fresh. sometimes a girl just needs to be sure she smells damn good.

it's no surprise i love me some gold. i rarely go anywhere without my watch on. i have a series of vintage gold necklaces and if i don't wear them around my neck, i wrap them around my wrist as arm candy. can't really have too much gold can you?

last but not least, i put a stack of business cards in all of my purses. you just never know who you might meet and the worst thing is not having your business card on you when you need it! this way, you never have to worry.
