Last night I had the pleasure of attending Almay‘s Playfully Pretty Spring event. Guests sipped teas and noshed on yummy eats like finger sandwiches and pretty sweets. We were also given the opportunity to try out all their new fabulous products like their new lip colors and we were reintroduced to some old favorites.

I often get a chill when I’m traveling. A pretty pashmina is the perfect way to keep warm on the plane. I think I’m going to bring this pretty soft yellow one by Love Quotes.
I usually wear slip ons like ballet flats or Toms when I travel. They are easy for going through security. However after my experience of being barefoot in LAX (yuck!) I now wear little sockettes. No more disgusting barefoot blunders for this gal. As practical as they are they don’t really keep my feet warm. I like to throw in a cozy pair too to wear during the flight.
Thank you to MizMooz for introducing me to Flipsters. (c/o) These sandals flip into a small little travel case and take up no room at all in your carry on or purse. They are so handy for pedi’s and for when you arrive at your hot weather destination.
Of course I take advantage of down time to catch up on important current events…in fashion anyway. They double as my beach reads too.
Bath & BodyWorks hand sani , Nosees tissues, Barefoot Venus Coconut Kiss light scented lotion, Lancome Juicy Tubes “Raspberry Ice” lip gloss, Almay makeup eraser sticks (to get rid of those raccoon eyes) c/o, Vaseline cocoa butter lip therapy (the cutest little bottle I’ve ever seen).
Yes, I am counting all these products as one thing. Whether it’s a car trip or a plane ride, I like to have a few of my essentials with me to help me feel fresh when I arrive. I also like to keep a pack of Emergen-C in my bag for a little vitamin boost. What do you like to pack?
Even though I am leaving on Sunday, I will have daily posts coming your way while I’m gone. New outfit posts, brag photos from Maui;) , and more! Aloha!
I have been commuting for the last few years now. Commuting forces me to be organized in the morning before I leave the house. As much as I plan ahead sometimes things come up like an extra meeting or an impromptu dinner. Unfortunately I don’t have the luxury to quickly run home for a little primp. Instead my car has to double as a beauty parlor. These are my essentials.
Bag: Lancome, Lipstick: Estee Lauder, Lipgloss: Lancome, Mascara: Almay, Brush: Lancome, Face creme: Lancome, Earrings: gift, Tissues: sniff, Bronzer: Too Faced, Eyeliner: Revlon, Tide-To-Go, Hair ties: Splendid; Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel: Bath & Body Works; Sugar-free gum
By taking these key beauty items with me I can switch my makeup from a day to evening look. I change my gloss to a rich lipstick, pump up my eyes with some liner, and add a sparkly earring and I’m set. Things like hair ties and stain remover are my just in case items. Hand gel, gum, and lip gloss are my must haves to leave the house.
What beauty item can you not leave the house without?
To get the low down on all the goodies I received for sampling, watch my video below. Then continue reading to find out how you can have a chance to win some of that exclusive product (that isn’t even in stores yet)!
London Drugs is every girl’s dream! With everything from designer fragrances to top quality makeup up and skin care lines, and maybe even a magazine and dark chocolate, they seem to have everything I need for a night in or to glam up for a night out.
I recently attended the London Drugs Fall 2012 Beauty Preview event. We were treated like celebrities with make up makeovers, manicures, skin mapping, and enough product to tie me over for the next year.
So I figured it was only fair to share some of this swag with one of my lovely readers! That’s you!
