What’s in my bag? Getting Fashion Week ready


This time tomorrow afternoon I’ll be in Auckland for New Zealand Fashion Week, so what better time than the weekend to make sure I’m well prepared. I’ve decided to forgo any designer handbags in place of a simple leather tote, large enough to fit all my Fashion Week essentials and then some. Trust me when I say I’m a little intimidated by the contents I am aspiring to carry around, especially when days can easily stretch out until the late evening, although it always pays to be prepared. Or a little over-prepared in my case.

My few beauty essentials include papaw lotion, a bold coloured lipstick, moisturiser, perfume and a healthy supply of plasters to bandage up the blisters I predict I may get from not-yet road-tested shoes. Then, on the more practical side of things, my Macbook 11″, Canon EOS 60D, business cards, a notebook, pens, iPhone 5 and some headphones. Come Monday, there’s also a pretty good chance that a pair of loafers may find their way among my daily necessities, but I won’t tell if you wont!

PS. Thank you to all of you who entered the competition for two tickets to the Designer Selections Showcase this Wednesday night. I randomly drew the winner, quite literally from a hat – Zara, expect an email in your inbox very shortly! x

    Ooh I have that same notebook! I do not envy you having to lug around all that stuff (it wouldn’t be too bad if it weren’t for the laptop and camera), but am looking forward to your coverage of NZFW. x
