My Monday | My Date Night Purse Essentials

Sorry I am late posting this. I was having technical difficulties with my photoshoots.  But now that I am figuring those things out, let me share with you what my date night purse essentials are!

I am pretty minimalistic when I comes to what I carry with me in my purse.  I worked at a chiropractic office for years and learned how damaging to the back a heavy purse can be when carried everyday.  I also hate digging around for any more than 5 seconds to find what I need.

My hubby, J, and I had a long awaited date night for this Valentine’s Day. Not having the baby with us means no extra stuff like diapers, wipes, and toys to haul around.  I can finally use one of my small prissy purses to look cute in.  Yay!  My Valentine’s Day bag of choice was my black Zara purse (similar one here) .

These are the items I consider to be my date night essentials that I carried in my Zara bag.

1) Honest Beauty Foundation: The main reason for this is for the mirror. However, it is nice to know I can reapply foundation if I accidentally rub my face on my husband’s  jacket or I had to wipe something of my face like a smear of ketchup because I was a slob.

I always want to feel secure knowing I can reapply some lip color after scoffing down some amazing food. I used these three lip colors to create a custom color for date night. These are my most favorite colors I own. 

2) Burt’s Bees Lip Shine in Whisper

3) Honest Beauty Demi-Matte Lip Crayon in Honey Kiss

4) Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Raisin

5) IPhone: Of course I carry this so as to have a way for the babysitter to reach me for any reason. I also use the camera to take pictures of our night out, like any good millennial does. Here are the best pictures of the night below. I still am trying to get better at taking pictures in restaurants. The lighting is so wierd in them.

By the way, this date was very last minute so I couldn’t get pictures of my outfit beforehand. You can see some of it in the pictures below.  It is a Zara dress (similar here and here ) and the trenchcoat (here)  is also Zara, which I featured in the post A Zara Christmas.  The earrings are from Ily Couture. They don’t sell these particular ones anymore but they have many other lovely choices to choose from here.

6) Lastly, I will be brutally honest with this last one. I had my period this weekend so….. a pad was definitely in the bag too.  No need for a picture of that though.


There you have it! Now you know what I feel is most important for me to carry on date nights.


Now you tell me! What are your date night essentials?


Much Love!
