tomorrow me and (part of) the fam are headed to one of my favorite places…california, duh! you know i love a good travel post, so here’s what i’ve got coming along with me >>
makeup:nothing too exciting, but i’m bringing along the usual nars creamy concealer in vanilla, w3ll people bronzer and brightening powders, gabriel eyeshadow in sable, rms swift shadow in tt-73 (side note, i haven’t talked about this shadow but it is amazing. so soft, so beautiful and is glowy instead of shimmery. i’ve been wearing it every day since purchasing, even with nothing else on my face. total love), tata harper volumizing lip&cheek in very charming, gressa lip boost in bare, mini bite beauty lipstick in meringue, shu uemera eyelash curlers, real techniques powder and expert face brushes, meow meow tweet baking soda-free lavender deodorant, and ursa major deodorant. plus some hair twisties and clips, of course.
side note, does deodorant count as makeup or skincare? probably skincare, but i’m bucking the system as per.
skincare (&liquids):again, the usual suspects with some fun stuff thrown in. for example, i got a new sunscreen since my other one is too big for travelling and i’m not comfortable taking it out of its container and exposing it to sunlight. so: mychelle sun shield, cetaphil lotion, mini trilogy mist, mini trilogy cleansing balm, dr tung’s floss (sexy), maison louis marie no.4 bois de balincourt perfume oil, weleda skin food, go-to face hero, dr. bronner’s hand sanitizer, living libations all seeing eye cream.
and the rest:the other stuff in my plane bag includes another of the miss fisher series by kerry greenwood, the bookshop by penelope fitzgerald, and the house at the end of hope street by menna van praag. just picked up those last two the other day and am really excited to start reading them. wallet is from minor history, sunglasses from ray-ban, and headphones from bose – a lovely christmas from my sister quite a few years ago now.
jewelry: pretty pared down (for me) since i never end up wearing what i pack on trips anyways. tiffany silver bangle (my high school graduation present – it says dream a little dream), thin gold rings from various etsy shops, gold ball chain that can be worn as a necklace or bracelet, mermaidbyhand (now eliza sloane jewels) abalone ring, beaded earrings that were a gift from my sis, sarah chloe monogram necklace, salt&summit turquoise ring, vintage turquoise flower earrings which were a birthday present a few years ago, gold ear pins from etsy, and anthropologie gold ear jackets that were my birthday present this year. dude, my family gives me good stuff!
so there you go my lovelies. what are your travel must-haves? what am i forgetting?!!
