Beauty and Lifestyle Travel Essentials

Traveling creates opportunities to pack just enough of your essentials or either over pack. When it comes to beauty and lifestyle items, I tend to lean on the over packing side because I love having options to chose from.

Here are a few of my must-have essentials that I pack for all of my trips (except weekend getaways). I guess you could also file these under the "if you're ever stranded on a desert island, what would you have to have" category.

Clarisonic Mia 2 

Nothing is as good as washing and exfoliating my face as my Clarisonic Mia 2. I love it! My face feels the difference every time I wash, it gives a deep but gentle clean, removes every trace of makeup and leaves my skin soft and radiant. My Mia 2 has been kicking for years and it's on it's last leg, so; I upgraded to the Mia 3.

GLAM All-Star Voyage: Makeup Cruise! Part 2

Hello Dolls!
It's been a while... there have been sooo many things I've wanted to post but never got around to doing it. I'm going to do my best to make up for it now that I'm back. Last year, I attended the GLAM All-Star Voyage makeup cruise and this year I will be attending the same cruise for it's second voyage! I loved increasing my expertise about makeup application and vacationing at the same time, plus it inspired me in so many ways.

This year, we're leaving out of New Orleans and I'll be taking two classes again like last year. I'm taking a class from Lauren Nicely, which is the A Nicely Face: Bridal edition class, and I'm also taking a class from Alexandra Butler, which is the A Beautiful Face: Makeup 103 class. I've taken classes from both of them before and I love how informative they are yet down to earth. Can't wait to see what's store this time!

A detailed post of my experience plus pictures will follow when I return.
