Give Extra, Get Extra! That’s my motto when it comes to prepping for a night out. Whether it’s a girl’s night out or a fun date night, being prepared for wherever the night may take you is key! Over time I have learned to always keep a few essentials in my purse (because nothing is worse than missing something you really need when you are out right? #ugh :p) I teamed up with Walgreens and Extra Gum to share how I get prepped for a night out in no time!
Step 1. Pre-plan your outfit!
This was the best thing I learned at my first job when I was in NYC. A lot of the time I would want to head out for happy hour after work with my coworkers or go to a girl’s dinner and didn’t want to wear the same outfit I wore to the office. What’s a gal to do? Pre-plan an outfit and have it ready to go! Whether I decided to bring it to the office or simply have it hanging on the door, planning ahead saves time, makes you feel more relaxed and helps you feel confident wherever you go!
Step 2. Always bring your essentials!
Whether you opt for a clutch, a cross body or even a tote, making sure you have anything you may need for a night out is key!
My essentials? Easy:
*Phone (of course)
*Backup Phone Charger
*A Mini Hairspray
and most importantly…GUM!
I always like to have a pack of gum on me because you never know who you are going to meet! It can be a cutie at the bar, a potential employer, a new friend…who knows! But one thing I do know is that I most certainly want my breathe smelling fresh and I always need a good conversation starter!
This brings me to…
Step 3. Picking out the right gum!
I discovered the NEW Extra® 35-stick packs at Walgreens and right away added them to the list for my night out essentials! They come in two great flavors that are already fan favorites — Extra® Gum Spearmint AND Extra® Gum Polar Ice® AND with 35 sticks of gum per pack, you can easily split the pack up to keep some in your going out bag and some at your desk! The durable packaging prevents the sticks from getting squished in your bag and it’s easy to open and share (plus since I am always chewing gum…the more sticks, the merrier)!
Step 4. Give Extra, Get Extra
The best part of these new Extra® 35-stick packs is that they help ‘break the ice’ as a conversation starter! Pull the pack out of your purse to get a piece for yourself and then share a piece with the person whom you are trying to strike up a conversation with! It’s that simple…Give Extra, Get Extra 😉
