Beauty Tuesday: Travel Trends

In Beauty Tuesday, Health, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Travel, Weekly Wonders, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 06/10/2014 at 13:00

The top travel trend:

Pack light!

Some of us out there find that task to be difficult if we have many accessories and apparel that we want to coordinate. Yet if our essentials are light, we can add other options. Also, if they’re versatile, we can mix and match with statement pieces.

This week, I’m out of town for work. Even though this is a business trip, I wish to play after taking off for the day. I’m keeping my outfits casual, as I’ll take full advantage of my hotel amenities: hot tub in my room and indoor pool.

R&R‘s just what I need after hitting the road and the ground running as soon as I arrived to my post!

Splash happy!

Happy Belated St. Patty’s Day ♣

Last week, I showcased my fave beauty products, wrapped up winter and lit up my fitness hits! Since I still have way more that are worthy of mentioning, I’ll reveal a few for you…

Shower Combs

What else is in my shower? When I suds up, I prefer to detangle so I don’t step out with shower head!

Mani Mania

Clockwise from top right: Hand lotion like this Bath & Body Works handbag size, comes in hand-y for a mani • I love this Victoria’s Secret nail polish remover bottle because the cap opens up to a user-friendly press-dispenser & easily snaps shut • I keep most of my nail tools in this leopard-print manicure set case from my GODson’s mom • I travel with this pastel-striped manicure set from one of my students • I soothe my lil’ piggies with this gel toe separator for pedis + to relieve foot tension!

M•A•C

M•A•C‘s where it’s @: I stick with red & pink shades yet switch from smooth to shimmer, depending on the occasion … or the mood.

I also post on the From Head to Toe app, so here are a dozen photos, from Mani Monday to Mardi Gras to Face & Outfit of the Day:

My Latest Top 5: My Greatest & What’s Trending

In Pro-DiSPO, Sports, Travel, What's Hot, Workin' Woman on 08/18/2013 at 03:20

Here are my freshest pieces on some of my passions: sports, fashion & travel!

I call these drama kings Professional Ballers Bawlers. The ones from the NBA reign on the Hardwood Crybaby Court while the others from the NFL and the MLB have their Field of Tears ;-(

I was born in Europe yet would like to take a tour with my other half. He’s already been, but a trip there together would be worthwhile if love is in the air. ❤

I chose these style icons because they still have an impact on us trendsetters and followers to this very day, not to mention that they may have been involved in the world beyond fashion.
