D.I.Y “Minimergency” Kit


As big as my bags usually are I’m never really equipped enough for a fashion emergency. There are tons of pre-made fashion emergency kits I could get my hands on to just throw in my bag, but I figured why not make it a bit more personal. The thing about buying the “Minimergency”  kits vs doing it yourself is that you can pick and choose what’s important or not to have in your your bag. So what I did for you is create a list of things you could possibly toss in your personalized “Minimergency” kit.

First things first is to purchase a cute little makeup bag to store all your goodies.




Now here’s a list of things of items I think would be essential to every fashion emergency kit, but like I mentioned before you know what’s best for you to carry around.

  • Folding brush/comb
  • Compact mirror
  • Hair spray
  • Dry shampoo
  • Hair ties/scrunchies
  • Bobby pins
  • Earring backs

#Trending: The Pretty Ugly Sandal

There has been no question that the Birkenstock sandal is the ugly step sister of  all sandals. Fashion goers had a change of heart when Phoebe Phlio introduced a fur-lined Birkenstock in her Celine S/S ’13 collection. Since then the Birkenstock sandal has no longer only reserved for the hippie or treehugger. This trend can be seen everywhere this season offered in a variety of colors and textures.

Even the Olsen twins have been spotted sporting a pair of Birkenstock sandals, so you can stop fighting it now!


Beauty Moment: Scrunchies


Velvet, printed ,metallic, neon, fuzzy, polka dot, etc. We all used a scrunchie at some point in our lives (and probably still do) because it was the fashionable and/or convenient thing to do. For that reason alone I think its only right to pay homage in this Beauty Moment feature.

#Trending: Orange is the new red



The orange lip is one of the most talked about beauty trends of the season. It has been up and down runways and featured in many magazines on women of all skin tones and still manages to look amazing! Which is all the more reason why orange happens to be the new the red of the season.

Why you ask? Because it’s new, fresh, and unmistakably BOLD! With that being said I know just like finding the perfect red can be a bit challenging and even scary, but after watching the video featuring one of the Nars leading stylist, Uzo you will be able to wear an orange lip with you head held high all season long.
