Evening Purse Essentials

Since I've been working at home for the last couple of months, I seem to be looking for more excuses to get dressed up and go out in the evenings. While working outside of the home made me want to just get into my pajamas and call it a night at 6 o'clock, being home all day has me wanting to get out and have some fun. Going out definitely calls for some purse planning, especially if you are like me and have those few items that always come with you. When switching between bags it's important to make sure you have the basics- money, i.d., key, phone, etc. But there are a couple other items that I can't leave home without.

My bag will always include ChapStick Total Hydration. It fits nicely into my evening clutch and helps to keep my lips from getting dry and chapped with an advanced nourishing formula that uses argan oil, avocado butter, and rose hip oils. You can also bet that I've always got some Advil on me, because there's nothing worse than a great night being ruined by a headache. This Advil Tablet Vial is perfect for my clutch, because it's small and holds more than enough to get me through the evening. It is great for helping with headaches, minor arthritis and other joint pain, muscle aches, and pains of the common cold. And lastly, I try to stay healthy, so I love to keep some Centrum VitaMints with me. (I would usually just keep a few in a small pill box, but I seem to have misplaced mine.) New Centrum VitaMints are adult multivitamins with a refreshingly minty taste you can take/enjoy any time of day with or without food or water. It's the perfect way to freshen your breath and get some much needed nutrients.

It's been a long time since I've had much of a night-life, so I'm definitely enjoying it! (I use the term "night-life" loosely. Night-life for me means dinner, maybe a movie, or a few friends and games.) What are some essential items you keep in your purse?

Haha nightlife has a similar definition for me too...but working at home means going out for dinner is a fun excuse to get dressed up a bit!

Chapstick is a go-to for me at home and on the go, but I always like to have a bright shade or two in my purse.
