6 Tips For Packing Makeup

Beauty Travel | August 11, 2016

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean the traveling has to stop! Stevie and I are going out of town today for 2 weeks, but before we go I have to share a fun fact about me when I’m traveling.

One of the toughest things about traveling is condensing my makeup down to JUST one bag. I instantly go into sudden panic mode.

I’m not a diva when I travel, so I for me it’s the thought of forgetting something I might need so I over-pack. I think most girls can relate with me there. After countless trips and …

Many of you guys have been asking me about this outfit I wore on my Instagram last week. I’m super bummed to inform you guys that the jeans and top are sold out. The good news? I found similar options!

Hallelujah for clothes that actually fit, right!? When I’m on-the-go comfort is always key but I like feeling sexy at the same time.  Nothing screams sexier than these sleek Steve Madden black heels I bought at Nordstrom a couple of months ago (I got them in nude too!). They’re surprisingly comfortable in my opinion. Imagine if I went with a …

During our West Coast adventure, we stopped in San Francisco to explore and take pictures for the day! If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, then you saw yesterday’s talking about the crazy weather and blooper moments we had. When I finally found the perfect little spot to hang out and snap some pictures, I was too nervous to take my leather jacket off because it was so windy! (I was not wearing a bra!)

I love San Francisco but…..A serious Note to self: Always layer up when you’re in the bay area.

Here’s how to Get the Look:

Hey Cuties! I thought I would share these two outfits I wore when I was in Napa Valley last week. They were my favorite from our 3- part west coast vacation trip! We had such an amazing time getting to see Napa for the first time. The highlight for me was trying fun new things like the Wine Train and riding in a hot air balloon at sunrise. It was magical! We drank tons of wine and it’s safe to say we brought a few bottles home with us. When in Napa, of course you have to dress up for …

Stevie and I are still on vacation (and loving it!) for the next few days before returning to reality. Yesterday afternoon we arrived at our third and final stop after spending some time in Laguna and San Francisco. We might have saved the best for last! 😉 We’re in Napa Valley and it’s safe to say we’re loving the wine country! I only became a wine person in the last year or so and I’m such a baby – I only like the sweeter white wines! I’m hoping to learn a thing or two and perhaps develop the acquired taste …

Happy (almost) 4th of July! While many of you may be taking weekend getaways, I’m excited to host my in-laws who are coming in from Austin this weekend.

If you’re heading out of town this weekend, I rounded up a packing list of 10 things you shouldn’t forget!

1. Cute Sunnies – you’ll end up buying a pair if you don’t pack one, so bring a style that you can wear all weekend long and aren’t afraid to scuff up.

2. Denim …

We just got back from a weekend getaway in Vegas with friends. While we were there, we stayed at The Aria – one of my favorite Vegas resorts that’s hip but relaxing too (they have the best pool). We were up late nights sitting around the Blackjack table – I don’t know who is more hooked me or Stevie! Anyway, yesterday when we were heading to the airport (I was ready for a nap) when Stevie mentioned that his skin always looks ‘blah’ when we leave Vegas. Why is it when we travel our skin does this thing where it …

There’s something about it almost being summer that makes me want to bust out the maxi dress and wear it all day. I’m a short gal (5’2”) so I prefer a midi-dress style that looks long on me but doesn’t eat me.

So I wore this cut-out floral dress (it looks like a two-piece!) when we were in Catalina Island last week and I love the delicate floral bouquets that add a vintage feel.

Outfit Details: WAYF Dress (steals here, here) , JCrew Denim Jacket (Old, try this one or cheaper similar option), ASOS Sandals, Vintage Necklace…

Hey guys! For my next travel guide, I decided on Los Angeles since, ya know, I live here. There’s so much to do and it was hard condensing this list down to 10 things. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that a lot of these things are pretty inexpensive, or better yet, completely free 🙂 Enjoy!

Grab a coffee at Menotti’s– even if you’re not a coffee lover, this cozy little place in Venice Beach is a go-to for Stevie and I. He always gets the Spanish Latte, and I love the hot chocolate 🙂
