Hello from down south! I’m on a road trip from Chicago through the southwest and onto Texas! I’ve packed all my hot weather essentials like my swing dresses, fedoras, and of course, sunscreen. This is a trip we do every year because I receive much needed medical help in Texas for my eyes. Let’s just say, without the wonderful doctors I have, I probably wouldn’t be able to write to you right now.
We are out here for a week (or more) and have a few things on our agenda. Last time we went to Texas I visited Magnolia and a few museums here and there. This time around, I have a list of great cafes I want to check out.
I’ve been wanting to feature more behind the scenes stuff like where I eat, shop, and travel to, so I hope I can get some great posts from this trip!
Like always, I’m squeezing a weeks worth of clothing into a carry on although we are road tripping. I’m using the file fold method (more about that here) and my storage cubes.
Speaking of, do you have any travel plans for summer? Let me know in the comments below!
WHAT I’M PACKING IN MY MAKEUP BAG FOR THIS TRIP:
TWO: Trips mean long times in air conditioning, sweatiness, and polluted areas. These alpha beta peels pads are like mini facials that leave you glowing and feeling clean. I packed about 7, one for each day.
FOUR: If you don’t have foundation darker than your skin, this bronzing mist is great for self tanning! I love it because I can spray it on at night and wake up looking golden and healthy. No makeup needed for those extra hot days.
SEVEN: Don’t take all your blush and eyeshadows with, just take this palette. Has every summer color you may need and fits really well into most makeup bags. I accidents smashed the bronzer (hence the one above) so I have to bring the extra.
NINE: I like to bring this every wear I go in case my self tan doesn’t work out (I’m not very good at upkeep!). This foundation is very light weight and doesn’t smudge in the heat. Just set it with the spray!
