With the holidays come many welcome distractions: endless Champagne, festive hors d'oeuvres, and all of the shiny decor your eyes can handle. And, that can only mean one thing — party season is officially here (we'll clink to that!). Once you've mapped out your outfits for each shindig, the challenge is figuring out how to go straight from work to a weeknight fete without lugging a full tote and your entire beauty cabinet to the bar. (Yes, the bag-lady struggle is real.)
Rushing from your desk to the dance floor is no joke, so we've rounded up a few instant-sparkle accessories and quick-fix essentials to help you keep things moving and lightweight. From odor-fighting wipes and versatile earrings to a mini phone charger and miracle-working makeup, this on-the-go kit is a no-brainer. Stash it in your desk drawer or bag stat, and keep those confetti celebration emojis handy — we have a feeling you'll need those, too.
