When heading out on vacation, I jam pack my schedule with sightseeing, museums, tours, and lots of eating. But during my time away, one day is always reserved for the ultimate activity –Shopping! So, while I was in London, I hit up Oxford Street and purchased some new beauty goodies and thought I would share!
There is no question that beach vacations are super fun and relaxing. Soaking up the warm sun all day. The natural sea salt water curls. The mid day Piña Colada. After spending most of the day in a soggy bikini and sticky from sunscreen, I like to dress up for dinner and night-time entertainment (and more Piña Coladas). Here are a few outfit of the night pictures from the week.
Now you are probably wondering about my beauty and hair routine. I didn’t pack any of my hot tools for the week, so my hair care was simple. My hair was just washed and air-dried, and I added a spritz of Living Proof Instant Texture Mist (Oh Sephora samples, how I Love you). This texture mist was great for adding extra wave and body. For beauty I tried to keep it to the basics, as gross but true, the evening humidity tended to sweat it off.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser, Nars Creamy Concealer, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer, Naked Basics Pallette (for Brows and Eyeshadow), Anastasia Brow Wiz, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, Clinique Chubby Stick Contour, Nars Contour Blush, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, MAC Lipstick in Plumful.

Recently, I was lucky enough to take a relaxing vacation to Cuba with my lovely boyfriend. Since a lot goes on during the travel process, I thought I would do a travel series to help any jet setting readers!
Today we tackle the most daunting yet exciting part of the vacation – the flight. I personally love flying, my boyfriend on the other hand..not so much! The rush of speed from taking off makes me want to reach my destination quicker. But once you’ve been in the air for a while, things can get tough. So I decided to share some of my in flight essentials!
Long flights can be draining, so entertainment is key. I always bring my Ipad stocked with music and TV shows – I was late on the Sons of Anarchy bandwagon but now I’m hooked! I always pack at least two books for a vacation and John Green’s Paper Towns has been on my list for a while. Stay tuned for a book review coming soon!
I like to dress in layers when traveling, that way I’m prepared for anything. This sweater was featured in my summer clothing haul and kept me super cozy and warm. Most of my important travel documents are organized in a travel wallet, which I did not feature, but my passport and wallet are kept handy. Other necessities include sunglasses, gum, tissues, lip balm and hand sanitizer (let’s be real airports can be yucky). As for beauty, I tend to go bare face when traveling. The dry air stirs up trouble with my skin so its best to not clog pores with make-up.
