You definitely want to bring your purse with you when you travel! But you don’t want to bring just any old purse. You want one that will have storage enough to hold your day tripping essentials while also keeping your valuables safe.
It can be tricky to find the perfect gift for a well-traveled woman. I’ve combed through tons of products and rounded up some of my own favourite items from the past year, as well as things that will be on my own Christmas list this year, to create my 2017 travel gift guide. Have a look through and check that traveller off your list.
I was sent my first convertible travel dress a few years ago to try…and it did not go well. I was excited to test it out because, back then, I was still a terrible overpacker and the thought of being able to pack one item for multiple outfits was enticing. The package arrived and I eagerly opened it up. “It’s…leopard print. Huh.” Would the KameleonRose convertible travel dress be different?
By now you already know that travel pillows, eye masks, and portable phone chargers make great gifts for travellers. So this year I want to help you elevate your traveller’s style with gifts that are practical, useful, and beautiful.
It’s that time of year again. I don’t know how it’s late-November already. Seriously, how did that happen? Didn’t I just blink and it was (Canadian) Thanksgiving? Normally, I’m all up on Christmas shopping in September. This year, not so much. Procrastination is real. So instead of getting through my own list, I’m going to procrastinate some more and help you with yours. Have a travel lover on your shopping list? I put together a gift guide just for you.
Just because you’re travelling doesn’t mean you need to forgo all your beauty products, but it also doesn’t mean you need to pack the whole bathroom cabinet. I always love “what did I pack” posts so I thought I’d give you a peek into my own travel makeup bag.
I must admit that I love my fancy Venus razor with replaceable blade cartridges, but it sucks at travel. The packaging for the blade wasn’t reusable and just sticking the razor into my toiletry kit while on the road was a dangerous, messy option. I may have fist pumped in the aisle at Target when I stumbled onto the Venus Snap.
Can you believe that we’re already 10 days into December? Yikes! Christmas always seems to sneak up on me and this year is no different. I know it seems like everyone and their dog is putting out a gift guide this time of year, but I love looking at them all when I get stumped on a cool gift for someone. I also wanted to share some things that I use in my travel life that I think would make fab gifts for the travel lover on your shopping list.
When I found myself in a Sephora on the mainland recently I decided to take a chance and splurged on The Multiple by NARS, thinking it would make a great addition to my travel kit. Combine the Multiple with my other favourite multi-purpose beauty product, BB cream, and you’ve got a full, basic face in just two tubes. You can’t get a whole lot more efficient than that.
A sweater I could wear under a blazer that would add a layer of warmth without the bulk? It even comes in its own little pouch that looks like a small pillow? I’m intrigued. Enter the ‘secret sweater’, a packable, versatile, lightweight layering piece.
I apologize right now to my male readers. You’re probably going to have little interest in what I’ve got to say. Unless you too have trouble with mangled bras and underwear going astray in your suitcase. In which case, read on and say good-bye to squashed bras.
These days, whether you’re a carry-on only traveller or one who, like me, has a bad habit of packing a suitcase full to bursting, finding products that can do double duty is always great. Today’s find isn’t even one I was out hunting for which made the discovery even better.
Before I left for Korea this spring I went scouring the internet for a cool, stylish laptop bag. I would mainly be working from home but I also knew I’d become a coffee shop hobo at least a few times. I found some really cute bags but in the end I got cheap and decided I could make due with a messenger bag that I already had. It was a bit of a mistake. I really should have continued my search for a great laptop case.
Less than a month from Christmas and you have no idea what to buy the traveller in your life? Fret no more – I’ve researched it for you and cherry picked the products that I think would make the best gifts for those afflicted with wanderlust. Friends and family… you listening? It covers everything from luggage and packing, dealing with your electronics and a few fun things thrown in.
Before every big trip I think “I must have everything I need. I don’t need to buy anything.” and yet every time, I buy stuff. Usually it’s clothes. Sometimes it’s gear. Often it turns out that I didn’t really need the things I bought. This time though I actually made my travel ife easier with these new purchases. If you’re doing some traveling soon and haven’t yet refined your gear list down to the essential must-haves, let me show you what worked for me.
