What's In My Clutch? Friday Night Essentials

I've thought about switching my Friday Favorites to Friday Night Essentials. Each Friday, I'll have a different night planned and share tips, stories or plans for what I intend to do or have done in the past. For this first Friday Night Essentials post, I'm sharing what I typically bring with me on a night out. Also you should know, most Friday nights I end up usually staying home, working on Saturday's video or chilling and watching Netflix with a GIANT bowl of popcorn. I know.. LAME lol. But every once in a while, I fancy a troll to some restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.

This is the usual necessities I'll bring in my clutch...

My clutch was a gift from my mom-in-law and I love taking it around with me during the day too when I just need to bring my cell phone, keys and wallet. I believe she got it from Express and I love the detail on it. In my clutch, I'll carry;

  • Business Cards - You never know who you'll start to mingle with and want to exchange cards 
  • My Metro Card - Kyle and I usually take a Lyft or Uber places unless we're walking, but sometimes the metro is just too easy and cheap if we need to venture further. 
  • Powder - I love this powder because it's a small compact that includes a sponge and a mirror. So, even if you're out and don't have quick access to a restroom, you can touch up wherever you are. The one I've been loving lately is the Dream Wonder power from Maybelline which is an excellent powder for a matte finish.
  • Gum - This or mints, yup.
  • Tampons - I'll take one or two with me. Even if you're not the one who needs it, sometimes a girlfriend will so it's a good thing to have on hand.
As you guys can see, I have 3 lip products in my bag, LOL. Lip products are my favorite and I like to include 2 shades, a light and a darker one and also a lip gloss or lip balm.

I have 'Monte Carlo' from NYX Cosmetics, Melted Peony by TooFaced and Luxe by Younique. I like that the Lip gloss I picked has a light peachy shade because that's my go-to, alone or with lipstick. 

What are your essentials you take on a night out? Let me know in the comments!
