This week’s guest blogger, the lovely Alissa Kelly, offers up fun fashion and beauty advice on her blog, Feeling Good. (Our favorite feature? Kelly’s fun nail posts!) We love her optimistic attitude and useful tips. Today, she’s showing us the must-have items that she can’t leave home without.
There are just some things women cannot live without. I’m a purse fanatic so I’m always switching my bag to match the day’s outfit. Every time I do, there are 5 items that always make the switch with me.
We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.
New York Fashion Week officially kicked off today, which means that for the next few days, I will live and breath runways, presentations, and parties. While it sounds like fun, the actual legwork involved requires tons of energy, which is why one must pack light and smart in order to keep up. Through trial and error, I’ve finally managed to round up a dream team of no-fail, transition-friendly beauty products that fit inside my smallest of bags, like this adorable mini crossbody by Jason Wu.
