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!

Gift Guide for Him

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

December 03, 2014

Gift Guide for Him

plaid shirt | shave kit | sunglasses | bracelet | running shoes | travel pouch | headphones | passport holder | duffel bag | cologne

The big question:  what to get the men in your life who have everything? I ask myself this question every single year! I have a lot of men in my life to shop for — my husband, dad, brothers + father-in-law. They all have great taste + they are all hard to shop for! I’ve rounded up some ideas to help you shop for the traveler, the gym buff, the sophisticated man + the laid back guy(s). My husband, Tony happens to own a few products shown above (the bracelet, shirt, cologne + shave kit). A couple he bought for himself + others were given to him as gifts.  He loves them, I love them + he says he gets compliments all the time when he wears them.

The plaid shirt is cool. What guy doesn’t like a plaid shirt? It looks better in person. But I chose it because it’s an easy gift + when Tony wore it, I found myself asking him several times throughout the day where he got it » means I really liked it on him. It fits great + he will get a lot of wear with this one! Ok, this shave kit is something special. Us girls like to indulge in our creams, lotions + potions…Well get your man a luxurious grooming kit! If your guy has to shave everyday (mine keeps his goatee tidy), or has sensitive skin, then get him the gift of the art of shaving. These Maui Jim sunglasses are really nice. It’s a great brand and the sunglasses are made extremely well. The ones I chose will look good on almost any face shape. This David Yurman bracelet is a bit of a splurge, but it’s a good choice for the guy in your life that enjoys wearing jewelry (my hubby loves his, I got him one for Father’s Day). These Nike running shoes are great for the casual guy or the runner. I own a couple of pair (woman version obviously), and really like mine. They are very comfy + lightweight. This travel pouch is so perfect for the traveler! It’s suede + I like the more rugged look it has. It makes a great personalized gift. These Bose headphones are so cool! I like them in white. Bose products offer amazing quality + your gamer/traveler/music lover will no doubt LOVE these! Travel in style with this vegan-friendly passport holder. Monograming is free! This duffel bag is affordable + great for him to carry to the gym, the airport or to work. Finally, this ‘Platinum’ cologne by Chanel is so wonderful – It smells ahhh-mazing!! One of my husbands favorite fragrances. GET IT, he’ll love it too!

I hope my guide sparks some ideas for the men in your life!

Petals and Pumps

Currently Loving…

November 20, 2014

I’m really loving this weather we’ve been having here in Miami! It’s been in the 50’s/60’s since Tuesday night, and that’s all right by me! Coming from someone who grew up on the West Coast – I miss the chill.

I’m also loving my nail polish. Isn’t this silvery-gold color cool?! I got my mani done last week, and since I’ve been rocking this color I’ve been getting so many compliments + inquiries about it! It’s perfect for the holidays!

This bluetooth speaker by Bose! Finally, I’ve found the best bluetooth speaker (trust me I’ve tried many!). I’ve been enjoying it for a couple of weeks now, playing holiday tunes throughout my house from my kitchen. My husband + I love it! It was so simple to set up, right out of the box. It has the quality you expect from Bose –  the sound is great + it looks cool! » It comes in fun colors too. (BEST value found on QVC.com)
