Sephora Haul | Travel Sized Beauty


IMG_3879

You pop into Sephora for one thing… and sure enough you leave with a mini haul! I always have my eye on sample and travel sized products, makeup, and skin care that are dotted around the store.

Origins Mask

 

I originally went in to pick up ORIGINS Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask.

They offer full size and the 1.7oz travel size, which is ideal for giving a new product a good test run. While checking out their range, I was totally sucked in to a couple of their kits. I’ve had my eye on a thicker moisturizer since my skin’s feeling a bit drained and dry from this Winter weather.

As I was eyeing the High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched Renewal Cream, I noticed that for the exact same price of $39.50, I could buy the 24 Hour Glow Kit instead.

The kit includes Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash (1 oz), High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched Renewal Cream (full size), GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturizer (.5 oz & oil free), and a really fun colorful cosmetics bag with a travel theme! I loved that Night-A-Mins, the exact moisturizer I was after, was apart of the kit in full size.

Capsule Wardrobes & the Carry On Luggage Challenge!


20130429-090831.jpg

I love the rush of finalizing travel plans!

Over the weekend I was able to confirm that May will be a hub of activity with two back-to-back adventures.  A little bit of West Coast, a little bit of East Coast – hell, a little bit of Western Europe to add to the mix would be fab… but I shouldn’t get ahead of myself. 

Once the initial excitement tones down, the daunting task of packing becomes a reality.  I love my pieces and my products, but for some reason I cringe at the thought of systematically weeding through everything.  I don’t know about you, but I hate packing.  I love planning, researching, booking, going, and documenting – but dread packing. 

So I’ve decided to challenge myself to not only stick to a capsule wardrobe, but… dare I say… only taking carry-on luggage.  I am open to tips & suggestions for those of you that are savvy travelers.  My most shinning moment is scaling things down to an overflowing tote bag and not exceeding 50 lbs at check-in!
