Fall Date Night Essentials

There's something about the crisp fall air that makes me even more excited to take a date night! I keep a few essentials in my clutch or purse for the evening and try to stick with the basics. Although I love the fall, the change of seasons can mess with me a little bit!

Back in the day, when Will and I went on our first date in high school, my only essentials were some lip gloss and gum (typical teenager.) Our first date was at the local Dairy Mart in the middle of the summer. I had strawberry ice cream and he had moose tracks! Now that I'm older, I've bumped up my date night needs a bit. 

These are just a few essentials and pick-me-ups to keep my feeling healthy all evening:

1. ChapStick: ChapStick is a TOTAL must-have for me. I never leave the house without a tube. The ChapStick Total Hydration is a great formula for my lips because it contains an advanced nourishing formula with argan oil, rosehip oils and avocado butter. My lips are left feeling hydrated and smooth.

2. Lipstick: Who doesn't keep their favorite lipstick shade on hand? It's a must to re-apply after dinner! I love a good neutral nude or pink shade!

3. Advil: I love the little travel tablet vial of Advil because it's so portable. I get frequent headaches and always have to carry something to help me bounce back on track from the pressure and pain of a headache. You can also use Advil for minor arthritis, joint pain, muscle aches, and pains from a common cold.

4. Sample Perfume: I pack mini perfumes I've received from online orders in my clutches because they're so easy to carry and reapply! It's a date night hack every girl should do!

5. Emergen-C: To ensure you're feeling the best for your date, try taking a vitamin pack like Emergen-C before the evening. Emergen-C offers over 20 varieties of vitamin supplement drink mixes which should keep you on top of your game!
I pick up my most of my essentials on an evening Walmart run! What are some of your date night essentials? Any from my list that are also holy grails for you? 


  1. Chapstick is a for sure date night essential, also a great lipstick!

  2. A couple of Peppermint Candies and $30 broken down in cash. The Peppermint Candies helps freshen your breath, helps with upset stomachs, and tastes great in hot chocolate or coffee. The cash... You never know when you will need actual money and an ATM is not available.

    Love your clutch!!! Who is the maker and where did you get it? I must get me one!
