Hey LadyCode! So much has been happening over the past few months so I’ve been struggling to stay consistent on my blog. Since all I’ve been doing is traveling, I wanted to share with you some things that I have to take with me everywhere I go. I’m a self-proclaimed diva so these items are things for glam girls to travel lighter and pack smarter:
Resistance Band: Staying fit on the go is daunting because it usually means packing gym clothes, shoes, and finding a gym. With a resistance band, you can get creative with workouts in your hotel room or even on a plane! The best part is that they are super lightweight and can squeeze into your luggage no matter how full it is.
UpBra Strapless: The ONLY bra I travel with is my strapless UpBra. This bra stays up without the straps and holds you up too. You can wear it so many different ways, and you can adjust the amount of push-up you want. Click here to see my demo of how the Upbra works: https://youtu.be/qGXhYn8PQZk
Secret on the Go: Don’t confuse this little deodorant with EOS Lipbalm! This miniature, adorable and travel friendly deodorant is permanently in my purse! The best part is that it’s the only deodorant made for women that works for my stress sweat!
Mini Hairbrush: I love my handmade Alexandre de Paris hairbrush. It was gifted to my by Alexandre de Paris. For a more affordable dupe, try the Sephora Collection mini boar bristle brush! It’s also a favorite of mine.
Face Masks: Skincare is SO important while traveling! Dry & inhumane conditions on airplanes, hours on the beach, and jet lag can all cause distressed skin. My favorite kit right now is the GlamGlow MultiMasking travel kit. It has a travel size mask for every skin concern and condition-it’s best to take the whole pack with you because you never know what your skin will do in a different climate!
Portable Hair Dryer: 9 times out of 10, your hotel hair dryer will suck, if they have one. Stay flawless on the go and save time by taking a mini hair dryer you trust with you. I used to take my Dyson with me everywhere and it was perfect to travel with, but it stopped working on me after 1 year. Amika, Harry Josh, and T3 all have great travel dryers. I love my Amika dryer but I’m currently saving up for the Harry Josh dryer because I’m a huge fan of the brand!
Wrap PonyTail: When you’re living out your vacation dreams, you don’t have time to be messing around with your hair. Look instantly snatched with a wrap pony! All you have to do is put your hair up in a ponytail and wrap these inches around your pony to instantly look like a celebrity. My favorite wrap pony is from Kiki hair.
Eyelash Extensions: Makeup is so 2016. Look naturally flawless 24/7 with a full set of eyelash extensions. Just remember to get them at least 1 day before you leave because you can’t get them wet for 24 hours after you get them done!
Micellar Pads: If you do wear makeup, Garnier created micellar water eye makeup remover pads, and they’re perfect. Micellar water is amazing because it’s oil-free, gentle, and removes all makeup. They label it for eye makeup, but you can totally use them on your whole face. The best part is that they are packaged in a travel-friendly sized tub that won’t rupture all over your luggage!
Scarf: Scarves can be used in so many ways and this is why I have to take a few with me everywhere! If your hair is getting crazy on the beach, tie it around your head for an exotic look. If you’re chilly at night, throw it over your shoulder. Wear it around your waist if you’re in a swimsuit and need to cover up for lunch!
