I used to travel a lot for beauty events, and sitting on a plane from Chicago to LA is never fun or comfortable. I wish I had something like the SONDRE Voyage Pillow ($27.95) with me. It’s a compact, multi-purpose travel pillow and eye mask that features a sculpting microbes pillow with a signature poly-spandex band for customization.
I used to travel once a year to Los Angeles to attend the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS), and each year I always managed to pack more than what I actually needed. I always tell myself, “I may need this.” Spoiler alert, I never do. Because of overweight luggage fees, I’ve always made it a conscious effort to always travel light. I’m talking just my carry on and handbag. Nothing more. Here’s how I do it.

When it comes to magazines’ summer content, there are two things that can be clearly detected in virtually every photo. One: the models’ faces are slender and happy. Two: their hair is flowing, wild and free, in their faces. De-puffed faces, most of us can get on board with; but having hair in your face, particularly on a day in one of the sweatiest seasons? No thank you!
To say that bikini season is a phenomenon is an understatement. Every year in modern times, the phrase pops up as early as February or April: “Bikini season is coming! Get in shape!”, or “Since we all know that bikini season is coming, it’s time to start that diet…”.
It’s summer and that means park visits, camping trips, family vacations, and spending many days at the beach. If you’re like me that means, many Miskito bites, sun burns, allergy attacks, bumps from tripping, and other various minor injuries that can happen. This is where CVS is here to help.
Personal wellness is increasingly becoming a hotter topic for many people. Clean eating, essential oils, products made with natural ingredients, decreasing your carbon footprint, eco-friendly manufacturing, solar power, green energy … it can get dizzying trying to keep up with all the newest topics for living healthier.
I like simple, easy. Some may call that lazy, but I think that if something that’s supposed to be healthy stresses me out that’s not worth the trade-off to me. Two simple products that are making a positive impact for me (without adding dreaded stress) are MONQ® Therapeutic Air® Personal Aromatherapy Diffusers and the Guardian Technologies Energy Light….

We all have a few tasks in life we deeply dislike. I for one, despise ironing and avoid it all costs. My hatred stems mostly from being left handed. Trying to learn to iron as a left-handed kid was a nightmare. The iron cord was always in my way and I could never figure out which side of the ironing board to stand on. Thankfully, when I went to college I received a steamer and my wrinkle problem became less of a problem.
One of my least favorite things about traveling is packing. I worry my suitcase is going to exceed the approved weight limit. If I’m doing carry on, I worry not everything will fit inside my smaller suitcase. I actually have FOMOS, fear of missing outfits and shoes. A girl must look good and be comfortable no matter where her journey leads her.
Thankfully, my fear has subsided now that I know how to pack like a pro.
I always look for products that are light and fitting for the summer months around this time of year! I found some wonderful items and wanted to share with you why I love them, and why they work for the hot months of the year.
