Here is a fun, (but true), article for you to enjoy.

1.     Dress

Look at what you are already wearing.  Are there items you can keep on?

Dress up your look quickly by:

  • Throwing on heels or dressy shoes
  • Quickly put on a dress, (quicker than styling skirt and top if starting from scratch)
  • Or a dressy top to go with your jeans/pants/skirt you are already wearing
  • A few outrageous accessories
  • A great looking jacket or coat, the quickest way to hornbag your outfit.

2.     Makeup

What quick touches can you make rather than starting again?

  • Foundation only where needed
  • A quick contour
  • Mascara and eyeliner is always a must for a quick hornbag look
  • Lipstick (then keep out to throw into your bag)
  • Use what is in your brushes, rather than wasting precious time adding more

3.     Hair straightener

A hair straightener is the only way to do the “quick fix” of your hair. 

  • Turn it on while fixing make-up to save heating time.
  • Add a few curls, or a quick flick around your face, quick smooth down at the back, spray and “abracadabra” – instant hornbag.

4.     Handbag

Have a go to handbag.  Sadly, these days mine isn’t a clutch bag, it is a black Louis Vuitton (purchased off ebay), which is gorgeous, but also holds mine and Simons glasses.

Quickly throw in necessary items into your bag.

  • License
  • Credit card
  • Glasses (go figure)
  • Lipstick

5.     Perfume

Spray a touch of your favorite perfume, which will not only give you an instant lift, you will feel better and stylish, and feel like hitting the town for the evening.

And if all fails, throw on a purple wig, add some sparkle, (we can never have enough sparkle), and your favourite "I Love Joel Creasey" t-shirt for an instant hornbag look.

Enjoy all the moments, being a hornbag.

We would love to hear from you about your fun, hornbag experiences.
