CB's Day-to-Night Essentials for Working on Weekends


CB's Day-to-Night Essentials for Working on Weekends:

  • Lookbooks and tech gadgets are always on-hand. You never know who you'll meet throughout the day or what you will need to jot down and research.

  • I don't know about you, but I prefer running around in flats. Leopard print is surprisingly versatile and makes me feel more bold on days when I need a little boost. However, I always keep a pair of classic, black pumps to take me out at night.

  • Coconut water is a great alternative to boost hydration over sports drinks (the fake coloring really irks me!). It's also the ultimate hangover remedy, facilitates digestion, reduces blood pressure and is rich in nutrients. For a woman on-the-go, it's important to take care of yourself and if that means taking a few swigs of a delicious Caribbean-inspired drink, we'll take it!

  • A little bling never hurt a girl! But don't forget Coco Chanel's tip: "When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on." Be simple but significant. Our go-to shops are Catbird, Vrai & Oro and Mociun.

  • Great beauty products are a necessity to rejuvenate your skin after a long week. My favorite beauty tip from Bobbi Brown: "My derm told me that studies show people who eat Vitamin-C-rich fruits and vegetables have fewer wrinkles- so load up on things like oranges, grapefruits, cauliflower, and broccoli. These foods are high in antioxidants to help fight the aging effects of sun, pollution, and time. She also said omega-3 fatty acids (think salmon and walnuts) will improve skin's elasticity. And don't forget to drink a lot of water; it's the numner-on way I keep my skin looking its best."

And, now we're ready for Monday!
