NYC Boudoir Photography | My Favorite Feminine Things

This week I will be packing for WPPI. I will be in Vegas for a week. During that week there will be lots of education, networking and of course parties. Packing for Vegas is torture. I see many FB status updates from people who share my woes.

I mean let’s not forget, I barely have time to wear makeup or heels in my real life, now I have to do it for 7 days in a row??

Sometimes being a woman is hard work.

I have some items that make me feel super girly that I never leave the house without. I thought it might be fun to share those with you today to inspire your packing mission.

First, I am obsessed with this mascara. No matter how tired or pressed for time you are, a little mascara goes a long way.


Still working with the makeup theme, I love packing eye shadow palettes. This is the best way to get the most variety without taking up too much room in the suitcase.

Of course Urban Decay Naked palettes are my favorite (if for nothing else based on the name alone). The new Naked 3 is my favorite these days.


Next is a comfy and sexy heel that matches everything. Neutral is the key. I bought these over the winter and they have gone with me on every business trip since. They are the Sam Edelman ‘Alva’.


It’s so hard for me to decide today what I want to wear next week, so I have a few staples that I know look good, travel well and are classic. Wrap dresses are great. I also have a little black dress I love that is perfect for any party or fancy dinner.

DVF makes amazing wrap dresses. Some are pretty vibrant and busy, but she also makes very simple solid color dresses as well.


PS… always make sure to roll the dress then put it in your suitcase. It avoids wrinkling that way.

Now it’s YOUR turn!! What is your favorite packing tip? Something that makes you feel girly? A special item you bring on trips with you. Anything you want to share!

  1. My favorite that I can’t leave without is l’occitane almond oil. I use on my legs everytime I shave. It makes my legs for sooo soft!!

  2. Several different sets of jewellery to dress clothing sets up or down, and it looks like you have several outfits too!! Have fun at WPPI, I couldn’t get there this year. Lx

  3. Always pack your essentials, extra undergarments and at least one complete outfit in your carry on. Just in case the airline loses your luggage. I learned this the hard way.
    I never leave home without mascara. It makes me feel put together. Have you tried They’re Real by Benefit? It’s the bomb!

  4. Definitely pack wet wipes on any trips! They are great for freshening up, getting stains off of clothes, wiping off a dirty bench seat/table and cleaning your hands if you touch something gross on accident.

  5. A girl can’t leave home without her accessories that help get/keep her in the mood. A little pocket bullet toy alway helps jump start the evening romance. Don’t leave home without it.

  6. Here are some of my maybe not so sexy tips but it might help you 🙂

    First aid kit including bandaid (for those sexy heels), Aleve, and lots of 5 hour energy drinks. Make sure to bring a denim jacket or something that would warm you up on those a/c rooms. Cute comfortable flats for the day so you can rock those heels at night! Lots of accessories! A large bag so you can put it all from the expo room without having to carry those terrible plastic bags they hand out. Make sure to carry on your purse your phone charger since you are out all day! Acetone and clear nail polish in case your awesome red nail polish start to chip and that bother you. Cotton balls, q tips, nail files and shower caps… not every hotel room is providing those anymore. I could go on and on… LOL Hope to see you all at WWPI! Safe travels 🙂

  7. Lipstick! I hardly ever wear lipstick in general, but something about traveling makes me want to add lipstick to my daily makeup routine! And a really good book that I have been wanting to read but have not had time!

  8. A lil’ bottle “Perfume” on your purse , You will be a couple hours between class before you can comeback to your room. So many new friends “There is only one chance to make a good first impression”

  9. Sexy Underwear and Bras.

    Granted I am a bigger girl, but I’ve finally lost enough weight to be able to fit into Victoria’s Secret Underwear (their bras too with an adjuster). But I’ve replaced my entire undie collection with VS undies and I tell you it goes a LONG way!!!

    Even when I wake up feeling like a busted can of biscuits, I shower and put on a pair of delicious undies…and my entire day is transformed. Even though the world can’t see it, I know how I feel underneath it all. Just saying…it’s kind of an amazeballs feeling and I go nowhere without them (obviously!)

  10. I always bring a bit of dark chocolate–enough for me and to share with someone special. It can set a romantic mood and make me feel very girly and feminine.

  11. I always bring along my cutest bra and underwear in case I need to have a spontaneous dance party in my hotel room (who are we kidding — I ALWAYS need to have spontaneous dance parties!!).

  12. Rolling is great for your clothing while in your case however remember to hang them up as soon as you get to the hotel allowing any wrinkles to fall out or at least lessen.

  13. I cannot live without my SUN sunless tanning spray . And mascara def need my mascara

  14. I always pack too much (!), but I’d say visine (for red airplane & late night eyes), raw almonds & EmergenC to keep you healthy!
