Amidst all the glamour and couture, hundreds of people maneuver the busy streets of New York in pursuit of the next, the biggest, the greatest in fashion whether it be a runway show, presentation, or another event/party. And the sentiment you hear over and over again, “I haven’t eaten all day.” Add in the weather transition from summer to fall as temperatures dip from humid to cool. As a result, many, including myself, get sick in the middle of or right after fashion week. I know last year I was once of several who succumbed to this hectic 2 weeks and wound up in the hospital. To avoid the drama and inconvenience of getting sick, proactive measures are in order. Here are some items that will keep you nourished, energized, and looking fab from the inside out and outside in during your fashionable days and nights.
First up: The water bottle. It is a must to stay hydrated during Fashion week. Event hopping in this transitional weather while drinking champagne, cocktails, it is easy to get dehydrated. With a water bottle, at least you have the option of filling up at your event pit stops. Most glass or stainless water bottle will do. I particularly love my 25oz SpaWater Bottle. It is double walled stainless steel with a hot and cold vacuum seal so it will keep drinks at your preferred temperature for hours. I’ve literally put cold water with this bottle and literally 5 hours later, it is 95% at the same temperature (and the same for my winter teas).
I like carrying these two as they are space savers and useful. Emergen-c is a no brainer as it supplies you will a good dose of vitamin c on the go. Naked Princess mini lipgloss are for those quick lip touchups when time is of the essence.
You need to snack and have some fiber during your day so a quick kind bar will do to have something in your system.
Method all natural hand santizer is a must when jumping on trains, cabs and buses, shaking hands, picking up gift bags etc. The germs are rampant but you shall be protected!
Dr. Bronner’s has the best ingredients to keep your skin hydrated from the outside in. With organic ingredients such as jojoba oil, avocado oil, hemp seed oil, ash and dryness don’t stand a chance.
Sambazon Organic Acai Energy Drink is a natural way to get your caffeine boost and antioxidants with acai, yerba mate, and guarana.
Harmless Harvest is chock full of minerals, magnesium, potassium; your friends in the fight to stay healthy in this transitional weather. It’s organic, raw and tastes like exactly like the goodness of a fresh coconut because it is!
