First and foremost, I would like to congratulate the winner of last week’s Valentine’s Day Giveaway – Katie Gellar! Enjoy!
I have to admit, I'm looking forward to getting away. Even though the weather hasn't been too bad, some sun and fun is on my list! But before we hit the road, it's time to update my travel kit.
First the bag - I like one big enough for a 3-day weekend and small enough to be a carry-on, like this Steve Madden duffel from DSW - and I love the nautical look for a beach getaway!
Inside, I like to keep it organized with a little pouch for all my travel-sized toiletries. Vera Bradley makes the cutest ones, available at Kirlin's Hallmark:
A special travel cosmetic brush kit from Sephora:
And a safe place for my baubles, like this jewelry portfolio from Pottery Barn:
Confession - I HATE hotel hair dryers. They're never powerful enough for my thick hair. So I bring my own - this mighty mini dryer from Sephora:
For years, I just didn't wear perfume while traveling. It was too heavy, I was scared it would spill, etc. And then I discovered these travel sprays at Sephora. Now I travel AND smell pretty!
I always carry a beautiful scarf in my carry on. I can use it as a pillow, a blanket, to spruce up my outfit, etc. My new favorite is this ornate one from J. Crew.
And of course, some comfy shoes are a travel necessity - and I'm obsessed with these pink suede Adidas sneaks from DSW:
Where are you headed this spring? Even if it's just a night away from home at a hotel with a pool, that little getaway can be so refreshing!
