products c/o Perricone MD; Travel Booster / Daily Brightening Moisturizer / Shower Mask / The Fixer Solid Oil

Whether I am traveling by airplane, or going on a family road trip, my skin takes a beating. It is so important to have the right skin care in my suitcase to get me though the trip without my skin totally freaking out! Thankfully, Perricone MD has a few fabulous skin care products which are simple to use, and TSA approved. Love that!

Perricone MD Travel Booster: This fabulous little supplement offers ten types of organic mushrooms found in different parts of the world. They have been chosen due to their ability to increase immunity and circulation; which we all need after being cooped up in a car or plane! The Travel Booster helps you look and feel fabulous from the inside out. Love that!

Perricone MD Daily Brightening Moisturizer: This is a lightweight moisturizer which offers SPF 30 while hydrating and minimizing lines. I love how it keeps my skin from drying out; because we all know how airplane air can wreak havoc on our otherwise moisturized skin! Ugh! This is a lifesaver!

Perricone MD Shower Mask: Who has time to do a full mask routine while traveling? Not me! That’s why I love this shower mask by Perricone MD. It is designed to be used in the shower. So, while you are soaping up your hair, or shaving your legs, your mask can work on your face. Now THAT, is multi-tasking! Love it!

Perricone MD Fixer Solid Oil: This is perfect for rough and/or dry patches of skin. It works overtime to fix dry skin, and it is great for dabbing on eyebrows to keep them in place. It works double duty! haha

These are great products for simple skin care while traveling. You can find them online here.

Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her review

Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit review

travel kit c/o Elemis: Limited Edition Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit

Raise your hand if you have had beauty products confiscated by TSA? My hand is up! I lost over $100 worth of beauty products flying back from Dallas last spring because I had “too many products” in my carry-on bag. If only I had this fabulous travel kit by Elemis when I was flying, nothing would have been confiscated!

This compact travel kit is the brilliant result of a collaboration between Elemis and Misha Nonoo. It is a limited edition travel kit which contains all of the luxury skin care essentials needed for travel; without having to worry about not passing inspection by TSA. Love that!

The Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit contains everything we need for maintaining our skin care routine while travelling. Inside the kit you will find Elemis’s Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (1 oz.), Balancing Lavender Toner (1.6 oz.), Papaya Enzyme Peel (0.5 oz.),  White Flowers Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (0.9 oz.), Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (1 oz.), Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream (1.6 oz.), and Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (1.1 oz.).

All of these products are TSA approved; and the pretty makeup bag designed by Misha Nonoo has plenty of room for other items such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, comb; and anything else you might want to throw in there!

My next trip will be a long weekend in Lake Tahoe, so despite the fact that I won’t be on a plane, I will still pack this travel kit since it will save a lot of space in my suitcase; plus the products are amazing!

You can find the Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit online here. Where is your next travel destination?

5 summer must-haves

Summer is here! This means we are all planning day tips, weekend getaways, and exciting vacations. In order to make summer beach days fun, air travel organized, and the season stress-free, I wanted to share with you my five favorite items to use while traveling this summer season. They are not revolutionary, just practical; and I happen to love them, so I hope you do too!

Sturdy and identifiable suitcases

The summer season usually includes at least one vacation getaway. This means we all need sturdy suitcases which are easy to spot when they come off the baggage claim carousal. It is a good rule of thumb to not have expensive luggage since someone might want to steal it; that being said, you also don’t want something so cheap that is falls apart when it gets tossed on, and off, the plane.

I love my purple luggage set. I have had it for about two years now and it holds up really well. I check my bags when I fly, and aside from some scratches, they look great! They are also easy to identify during baggage claim. You can find my set on sale right now here. That handbag is a favorite of mine, and can be found online here.

Comfortable yet fashionable shoes

Comfortable doesn’t have to mean frumpy! If you don’t already own a pair of Adidas Superstar’s, now is the time to grab a pair! Everyone from grade school students to Fashionista Grandmas own a pair of these sneakers. They are comfortable, and offer some serious street style cred. You will need a pair this summer for walking around theme parks such as Disneyland or Great America. You will also need a pair if you are traveling; they are great to wear while site seeing! You can find them in stock online here.

Essential travel accessories

So remember that thing about sturdy luggage for flying? You will want a luggage tag for your checked bag. Now that TSA is planning to make us take more out of our carry-ons, it is getting to the point where we might as well check everything! We will all need another luggage tag for that.

Also, we are heading towards the era of the “Real ID,” this means we all should have a passport and/or passport card. If you plan to travel a lot, a passport cover is essential for keeping your precious ID protected while you are on the go. Mine can be engraved with your initials and can be found online here.

Beach beauty travel-size products

Summer vacation usually includes a lot of time in the sun and sand. These travel beauty products are TSA friendly and also help combat humidity and tired skin. I swear by the Frizz Guard for hot, humid summer days! I don’t do well with frizz, I would die without this product. You can find it online here.

Thin, packable beach blanket which doubles as an airplane blanket

If you read my recent Tahoe trip recap, you may have noticed this beach blanket. It is actually really thin, and folds nicely into a small little shape which fits inside a handbag. Love that! It is great for sitting on while at the beach, using as a lightweight blanket in the car on road trips, or as a giant blanket on an airplane. It could also be used as a large beach wrap. Love it! You can find it for under $40 online here.

These are five things I find essential for the summer season, for both stay-cation days, and vacation days! What are your favorite items to help make summer fun and stress free?
