What’s the holiday season without a trip to the big city? On Friday, I packed up my bags, stashed all the makeup I could grab and hit the road with my boyfriend and his family. Normally when I’m packing up my must-haves, I’m always playing “eenie meenie miny mo” with my overflowing vanity of makeup products. But thanks to a sweet gem I found in the swag bag from last week’s beauty and spa media event (you can check out my video recap here), I was able to fit all the makeup and jewelry I wanted. I was even more delighted when I realized this deluxe weekender Sonia Kashuk Cosmetic Bag, is available at Target and priced perfectly for just under $30. This weekender has small and large zip compartments, not to mention removable velcro in-and-out cases for simple cleaning. Talk about some bang for your buck!
The past two times I went to NYC this year, the majority of my time was spent hopping around the city for Fashion Week shows so this trip was a nice break from what I usually do. Check out my weekend activities in the big apple below!
