Spring is Here. Time To Get My Glow On!

Yesterday was the first day of Spring, but it sure didn’t feel like it. Millions of Americans were hit with more snow and frigid temperatures. Here in New York, we got 5 inches! Today, the sun was shinning and pretty much melted all the snow from yesterday – let’s hope that’s the last time we see snow until next winter.

What’s in Your Makeup Travel Bag?

I am currently writing this from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Tomorrow is my 23rd birthday and my boyfriend is taking me to Jamaica for the week. Although makeup is the last thing I really care about right now, that wasn’t the case a couple of hours ago when I was packing my bag at home.

I went through all of my makeup reciting the same words over and over again saying “I need this.” My boyfriend, at first, calmly repeats “You do not need that, babe.” Ignoring him I continued to pick out all the shiny cosmetics I wanted to take with me. Mind you, I’m only going for 3 nights. After realizing that the airline has a policy regarding the size of the products one can carry on, I was forced to reduce my hoard because I wasn’t checking in any of my bags. Slightly disappointed, I decided to only bring these necessary items:


-Gimme Brow by Benefit
-The Porefessional by Benefit
-Cleanse wipes Lauren Napier
-SHY Girl Lipsticks
-Part Proof Matte Lipstick in Kitty
-Laura Geller Baked Blush
-Shiseido Power Infusing Concentrate
-They’re Real! Mascara
-ModelCo Bronzer

-Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
-Hello Body Cream
-Crema Da Mano Tocca
-Dear Clark Shampoo
-Tat2 Lash Mascara
-Fake Up by Benefit
-Billion Dollar Brows Duo Brow Pencil
-ELF Lip Liner in Wine
-ROC Retinal Eye Cream
-Dr. Brandt Face Cream
-Tanning Lotion

My boyfriend will probably be right. I may not use a lot of this because I’ll be too busy enjoying my birthday… but at least I have it.
