Travel Diaries: The Pared-Down Makeup Kit Edit

So if you read yesterday’s post (if you didn’t, click here to catch up), then you’ll know that I brought a bucket load of makeup brushes with me on my ten-day trip to Spain. By now, you might be wondering what those brushes were used for? Makeup hoarder junkie as I am, I surpassed even myself with the scaled-down, edited version of slap I brought with me.

Travel Diaries: The Skincare Edit

If there’s one thing I hate about travel, it’s that I can’t be as scrupulous about my skincare as I normally am. Much as I’d like to, I just can’t cart around all the products I’d like to have at my fingertips. And when those awful 100ml hand luggage rules come into play, it’s so much harder to take what I need. So bravo for all those minis, sample and…
