My Everyday Must-Have Essentials





  • Purse – I think an essential for any girl right? I’m currently using my new Chanel Classic Medium Flap Bag and I’m madly in love with it! I’ll be doing an updated “what’s in my bag” so stay tuned.
  • Hand Cream – I literally have multiple bottles laying around the entire house. Working in the medical field has destroyed my hands overtime so I pile layer upon layer. The Aesop Resurrection Aromatique happens to be my fav, its time for a new tube though.
  • Perfume – I recently picked up the Chloè roller ball purely by accident because my daughter put some on in the store and it was all I could smell when we got home. She remembered which bottle it was and I was immediately hooked (thank goodness for her little touchy hands on this one)! I spray perfume on throughout the day and feel naked if I forget to.
  • Lip balm – Whether it’s tinted or just moisturizing, I must have some type of lip product within arms reach. The new Lancôme Shine Lover in 218 has been living in my handbag for the past week now!
  • Sunglasses – If you haven’t noticed already I’m highly addicted to sunnies. I can’t help it and I wear them in any type of weather. I recently picked up the Dior Reflected sunglasses which suit my rather large face.
  • Moisturizer – I will not wear makeup if my face isn’t moisturized, its almost a makeup sin in my eyes. I can’t apply face makeup without some slip so the Glossier Priming Moisturizer is #1 in the line up, it’s 100x better than Embryolisse!
  • Eyelash Curlers – If I lost all my makeup and tools this would be my number one purchase. They’re the number one thing that take me from dreary to wide awake in just a few seconds. I can walk out the house without makeup but can’t leave until my eyelashes are curled.
  • SPF – This is very important and the key to why my skin has improved over the years. I wear SPF every single day to keep my skin as healthy and wrinkle-free as I can. The Kate Somerville CC Cream has coverage, luminosity and an SPF of 50. I have to say it’s my favorite of all the BB & CC formulas I’ve tried so far, even beats the Chanel one!
  • Watch & Rings – I love a good chunky minimal watch for everyday and stacking my rings.
  • Hair Care – I’ve said this on more than one occasion but the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray has a multitude of characteristics which makes it they best and only styling product I use for my hair.

    Love the story about your daughter and the perfume! So young and already has great taste 🙂 Chloe is probably hands down my favorite perfume scent, glad you love it too!

    Those sunglasses are gorgeous! I love using big aviators (something from VB) because it suits my big old round face lol. Loving your photos as always 🙂


  • Leticia (Thee Limited Edition)

    Luckily she remembered which bottle it was, so cute! 🙂 I will have to give that a smell next time I’m in Sephora!

    Have you ever seen this tube wringer by Dr. Hauschka? It allows you to get every last squeeze out of any tube. I use it for my Aesop Resurrection Aromatique which I discovered and love because of you! 🙂
    Anyway, it might seem like a spendy little gadget, but I use it for everything, even toothpaste!
