Go-To Products For A Girl On-The-Go

My daily list of running errands, completing projects, schlepping from here to there, and balancing a social/family life is ever-growing. Not to mention spontaneous excitement that life in the city has to offer. Sometimes I feel like I need octopus-arms. So, budgeting time to look presentable is not always on the top of my list. But, luckily I've found some products that will keep me looking and feeling fresh but won't cramp my busy schedule.


First on the list is Aveeno's Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 ($10 at various drustores). You can choose from tones like fair to light, medium, or dark. Since it's tinted, this lightweight lotion does double duty and also acts as my foundation. This one-stop fix can save me an extra 5 minutes-- giving me plenty of time to squeeze in another latte.


As for my lips and cheeks, nothing beats Stila's Crush Lip and Cheek Stain ($24 at With fruity color choices like coconut, mango, and our personal favorite pomegranate, you can splash some on and you're set for the whole day with some shiny new lips.

Pomegranate Mimosa

Always brunch! And what better cocktail to have with brunch than a mimosa? With the holidays quickly approaching, gatherings will be happening more frequently as we focus more on quality time with family and friends. If you have little ones like I do, evenings can be hard to pull more

Because I often am literally running from here to there, I need some shoes that won't destroy my feet. Check out these killer Mini Python Perfect Flats from Ann Taylor ($118). My toes have never been happier--and prepare for an ego boost--these little babies make heads turn and have women (and men!) tossing out compliments.


Sure, it's great to be able to take 2 1/2 hours a week and get a mani/pedi but who has time for that? (If that person is you, I'm super envious!). Every two weeks or so I get the full treatment but for those in-between moments I slap on some essie nail care good to go rapid dry top coat ($8). Even when I don't have on any color, with it's built-in silicone drying agent, this bottle of perfection has my nails looking shiny and clean in a New York minute.


I have a pretty good memory, but with so much going on, it's impossible for me to keep track of everything. It may seem a little old-school for you, but studies have proven that writing things down enhances retention. No one wants to lug around a giant planner, but how about one that's smaller than your cell? Gotta love the Moleskine Extra Small Mini Planner ($10) that measure just 2.5'?³ w x 4'?³ h. Not only are there an array of fancy colors, they come in daily and weekly formats and they are compact enough to throw in a bike bag, or even your pocket, if you opt for the slender weekly version.
