June 2015 Beauty Favorites + Moving Chit Chat!

Keep in touch on Instagram 
I can hardly believe we are halfway through 2015!! June was a very stressful month because of the move, but I am glad we survived with all body parts intact. I will look back fondly on that first apartment, because living on my own was my first big girl step and I learned too many things to count! Now, I hope this new apartment will allow me to grow creatively and share with you more beautiful lifestyle inspirations, such as home decor and beauty organization. Plus, expect more pictures of Beau since my new place has more space and light!

I'm still in the process of unpacking and waiting for my furniture orders to arrive, but in the meantime, I wanted to share my latest skin care display. I thought more of you would be curious about the products, but I got an overwhelming response for the tray! It's actually a kitchen server from Crate and Barrel. I loved it immediately because I have a weakness for marble, but I knew it would be perfect for skin care because of the height between the shelves. I had used acrylic organizers from The Container Store for years, but they are too high maintenance and cannot accommodate larger bottles and jars. Now my bathroom (and yours, too) can be clutter-free!

Note: I did not feature any skin care in this episode because I plan to do another skin care video later this month. Would you prefer a current skin care favorites or morning/evening skin care routine? Let me know!

AIRPORT | Beauty Bag Must-Haves + Travel Hair Tutorial

With summer vacation season in full swing, I get lots of travel related questions! I've tried countless brands and styles in the last two years, but here I'll present the very best beauty bags that keep me organized while flying. Plus I show you how to use the T3 Compact Folding Dryer that I have been packing on all my trips! I had been obsessed with the Bodywaver for months, and it is still my favorite curling iron, but I never full grasped the concept of looking like you've had a blow out without having to use a blow dryer. Now I finally understand it! Since I tend to be bare-faced during my flights, a clean bouncy blow out makes me feel confident but not overdone. Minimal yet polished is the way to go when traveling!

Now, since I get asked about my luggage regardless of the time of year, I wanted to answer your questions regarding my beauty bags and carry on suitcase. I am petite at 5'0, so I prefer to travel with bags that I can carry and lift on my own. The Rimowa was an investment, but it was worth every penny! It does scratch occasionally, but overall, the white color is not difficult to maintain. I just wipe it down with a damp microfiber towel after every trip! I've talked about my Anya Hindmarch a lot, but I love it the more I carry it. It's so useful for storing my in-flight skin care, hair care products, and other liquids (3.3 oz bottles or smaller). Also, I now separate my makeup products into the Tumi toiletries bag because it actually fits all my makeup essentials! I tend to carry powder makeup only when flying to avoid having it thrown out by the TSA staff. I hope these tidbits and tricks will help you pack for your next trip!!

Chanel Summer 2015 Méditerranée + Les Beiges Review, Photos, Swatches

Chanel Summer 2015 brought us two fabulous beauty collections! Méditerranée was released a few months ago, and I only purchased a few pieces, so I had only planned on a dedicated blog review.

I wanted to try something different and fuse the review + tutorial together to make the video flow more efficiently, so I hope you'll enjoy this new format. Feedback is welcome!
