What’s In My Bag? | Lake Tahoe, California 2015

Happy Thursday! Today I get on my first flight of 2015. It feels like forever since I’ve been on a plane. My first flight of the year takes me just up north to San Francisco. While I’ll see some family, I’m really spending my weekend in Lake Tahoe (CA side) with some close friends – our annual snowboard trip! So here’s a look into the items I’ll be bringing with me to help my skin fend for itself. Face Yuli Halcyon Cleanser Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex Odacité Night Time Antioxidant Repair Serum CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Hair Rahua Classic Shampoo Rahua Classic Conditioner Kae Argatherapie Hair Repairing Serum Body Weleda Regenerating Body Oil Pomegranate Due to the short trip, I usually don’t bring a soap or body wash and just use one provided by the hotel. Did I ever mention how terrible I am at putting on lotion too? At least I’m packing a body oil that will help my legs and arms stay somewhat moisturized in the …

What’s In My Bag? | Yosemite National Park, California 2014

Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.  – Ansel Adams, photographer While I’ve been a little neglectful of this blog its naught for good reason. The Mister just returned from Afghanistan and we took a trip to a little (ha!) place in the mountains of California. As outgoing as I am, this was actually my first real camping trip… and now I want to go camping every month! We truly roughed it with a campsite just a mile away from the South Yosemite entrance. It came equipped with, well, nothing save for a small camp grill at the site and community vault toilets. So what was I to bring to a vacation where I couldn’t shower every night? The bare minimum.

What’s In My Bag? | Balearic Islands, Spain 2014

When my anticipated trip to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup regrettably fell through I wasn’t going to waste my 10 requested days off by moping at home. So my friend and I decided to go elsewhere. But where to? We could have gone anywhere but after an excited discussion we decided to visit the Mediterranean, specifically to the islands off of Spain. To accommodate my tight flight schedule I will traveling with my backpack as carry-on which challenges me to pack toiletries no larger than 3.4 ounces. Luckily many of my products are small sized!

What’s In My Bag? | New York, New York 2014

Over the weekend I had a short getaway to the city that never sleeps. I literally feel like I didn’t. I’m a zombie right now. Anyways, instead of showcasing you what I brought with me, I want to show you what I brought back with me from NYC. I got the inspiration to visit the Bite Beauty Lab in SoHo from Katie of The Green Product Junkie. I told myself that I needed to do that and I’m so so happy that I did. I would probably label this the purchase the most fun I’ve had shopping for green beauty products. I got my perfect natural nude and a deeply moisturizing lip treatment.

What’s In My Bag? | Las Vegas, Nevada 2014

Hellooo weekend! Today, I embark on a girl’s getaway to the most famous city synonymous to sin – Las Vegas. This city is nothing to play around with when it comes to nightlife. With that said, I’m posting something a little different by showing you what’s in my makeup bag. I’m very classic and simple when it comes to makeup.

What’s In My Bag? | San Francisco, California 2014

If there’s anything that can perk up my life it’s a flight to, well, just about anywhere. This weekend I get the chance to spend some quality time with some very dear family and friends, pig out on delicious SF food, and become a Godmother for the 3rd time. I’ll only be gone for the weekend so I’ll be packing light with some bare necessities. I recently acquired the Tata Harper Winter Moisturizing Collection as an anniversary gift from The Mister. It comes complete with all the products for a basic skincare routine – face wash, serum, lotion, balm, and body oil. And it has enough product to last me for at least a week!

What’s In My Bag? | Phoenix, Arizona 2014

My first official trip for the new year and I’m off to my home state, Arizona, for the weekend. I’ll be seeing friends in the Phoenix metro area and snowboarding at Sunrise Ski Resort for some quick fun. Yes, people, Arizona gets snow in the northern, mountainous part of the state! In an effort to save myself a $25 checked baggage fee, I’ll be traveling completely carry-on which means I have to keep my liquid toiletries 3.4 ounces and less. So what will I be taking with me this time? My smaller items and sample sachets will be perfect to carry me through the short trip.

What’s in my bag? | Australia 2013

I’m only days away from my big trip of the year and I can hardly contain my excitement. Not solely for this vacation but for a new post series that I hope (beg, plead, and wish to the Man up above) gets updated periodically because that means I would be traveling. Thankfully, most of the full size products I use are less than 3 ounces, making them TSA approved and very travel friendly. It might seem like I’m hauling a lot with me but I’ll be gone for 2 full weeks. These skincare items are pretty much essential, don’t you think?! If you’re digging my Dakine Alina 3L bag then make sure you check out their website. And especially don’t forget to check out my Instagram for any updates on my trip!
