6 Beauty Essentials to Carry This Fashion Week

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.

Guest Blogger: Hobo International Angela

A self-proclaimed beauty addict and over-the-top girly girl, Lara Ramos has been dedicated to living a pretty lifestyle since birth. Her blog, The Glossarie, highlights ground-breaking beauty products and little laid-back luxuries. While it started as a straightforward beauty blog two years ago, The Glossarie has become a full-on outlet for chicness of all kinds. This week, Lara shares five pretty products and ideas that add a little fun to her world.


While my first love is beauty, my adoration for handbags is not far behind. To showcase my obsessive bag-lady status, I dedicate a weekly post to purses in The Glossarie on Thursdays.

Now if you’re like me, you tote more than your fair share of products in your handbag: a lip gloss here, a bronzer there…now where oh where is my blush brush? Not to mention a mirror, a hair elastic, my phone, keys, wallet, and sunnies. Seriously, it’s a jungle in there! I also find that switching purses from day to evening, weekday to weekend means that I’m constantly forgetting something somewhere.

Until now.

Birchboxers, meet Angela. Angela, meet the Birchboxers. Angela is a super-soft convertible bag from Hobo International with a hide-away strap that allows her to go from shoulder bag to clutch in the blink of an eye. Gone are the days of leaving behind a treasured lip balm in your Saturday/Sunday handbag because your practical weekday carryall just became your go-to evening favorite. The extra tumbled leather gives Angela a broken-in look and the vintage-inspired pleat detailing makes this bag feel fresh for fall. Best of all? The oversize frame means you can stash your life inside her roomy, poppy-printed interior.

Now what about those beauty products?

Well, Angela hides three generous slip pockets, a zip pocket, and a key hook. A strong magnetic closure keeps all your treasures safely inside until you’re ready to touch things up. You can find Angela at hobobags.com starting next month!
