9 Items I must Travel With | Beauty & Fashion

Sony a5100 | Adidas Sneakers | Bose Headphones | Dry Shampoo | Cleansing Balm | Organic BB+ Cream | Perfect Fit Protein | Stila Liquid Lipstick | Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette 

Lately I’ve been traveling a lot, so it got me thinking…”What are my must-haves right now for when I travel?”

I rummaged through my halfway unpacked bag ( I just got back from Charleston ), and found the items that I’ve consistently taken with me for my recent stay-cation and travels. Today I’ll be leaving with Tony to Turks & Caicos for my birthday week,  I will definitely be taking these products along!

{ The Sony a5100 Camera pictured above, is the ‘goldilocks’ of cameras. It’s not too big, not too small & user friendly. It’s a great camera for blogging! The photos in this post were taken with this camera, except for the first one and the last two. You can see the images are clear, crisp and bright. }

This travel-sized Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo is awesome! No white residue. No funny smell. No Sticky hair. It’s great to use after I workout, a beach day, anytime I need to freshen up my hair. These ‘Stan Smith’ all white Adidas are my ultimate favorite right now. They are comfortable and cute! They go well with skirts, dresses and cut-off shorts too. The REN Cleansing Balm is great for melting down my makeup. It smells great and leaves my skin super clean. It is also good for all skin types and is NOT formulated with any of the yucky stuff like, parabens, sulphates, mineral oil or synthetic fragrance.

I LOVE these individual protein packets by Perfect Fit! I do try to get some workouts in when I’m away. So to make sure I get enough protein and fuel my body I have to have these! Perfect Protein is plant-based, organic, non-GMO and sugar-free. These packets are just so easy to travel with! I don’t like fussing too much with my makeup when I’m out-and-about. And  liquid lipstick stays on your lips for hours. Stila, in my opinion, makes one of the best liquid lipstick formulas. ‘Baci,’ is the perfect nude pink color and will go with any outfit. Finally, I can’t go anywhere without my Modern Renaissance palette! The shades and the formula of these eyeshadows are just so good!

In Bloom By Jonquil Pajamas

New (sexy-cute) Sleepwear from Nordstrom: Perfect For The Summer Months

May 21, 2015

In Bloom By Jonquil Pajamas

Camisole & shorts | Ombré Chemise | Printed Wrap 

In Bloom Camisole & ShortsIn Bloom Knit ChemiseIn Bloom Printed Wrap

I usually go pajama shopping around this time of year. With the hot-muggy Florida weather not letting up anytime soon + summer quickly approaching, I need comfy, lightweight  pajamas right now.

I usually gravitate towards the In Bloom by Jonquil brand at Nordstrom. There’s always cute new  prints + the fabric is always perfect for this time of year. I ended up getting a sexy cami + shorts set, a knit chemise and a printed wrap (robe) with the same lace trim + exotic animal pattern as the cami + shorts.

I’ll be snoozing in style!
