LUSH COSMETICS

LUSH is a cosmetics company whose philosophy is integrated in everything they do- in their products, ingredients, methods, message, and business model.
  • Their products are 100% vegetarian, and more than 80% are vegan, because they do not believe in animal cruelty for any purpose. When they use non-vegan ingredients such as honey, yogurt, or eggs, these ingredients are sourced from suppliers that agree with Lush’s philosophy of no cruelty to animals.

  • Their products are passionately handmade by devoted human compounders.

  • They use only the freshest fruit, flowers, herbs and vegetables- all locally sourced.

  • Their products lead the way in innovative recycled packaging and other alternatives such as:
    “Naked”- things like shampoo bars, henna hair coloring, and massage bars that don't require packaging
    “Knot wraps”- based on the Japanese tradition of Furoshiki- the wrapping is made from organic cotton or 2 recycled plastic bottles, and can be used again and again as scarves, totes, and other accessories- like giving 2 gifts in one! When other packaging is necessary, they use 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and pots

There is a lot to love about this company- and their products are stellar!

THE PERFECT TOUCH FOR HAIR

Your hair is the frame of your face. Perfect hair is the key for looking totally amazing, so up your game and add a touch to your locks. An extra touch of radiance will complete your look- top it off with the perfect hair accessory to make your outfit party perfect. Springtime is almost here. It’s the time of joy and celebration- what better way to celebrate the season than adding flowers to any style of hair? They come in many ways to choose from: pin clip tiara, or in a vine and more…

This Dark Red Velvet Rose Hair Flower is a great option. This is such a pretty clip! It's well-made and, due to the velvet, seems less flimsy than most artificial flowers. It also comes with both an alligator clip and a pin back brooch, so it can be worn in several manners - clip to the hair or pin to a scarf or bag.


These handmade boho flower headbands are made out of fabric flowers, but when one looks at them they appear like real flowers with the same soft and velvety texture. Each flower is carefully crafted and the leaves are assembled so that they look neatly lied in a bundled fashion. There are multiple colors and styles to choose from.

It helps you look graceful and ready for any party or festive occasion. The flowers can be woven in the hair or left trailing down. Available in shades and mixes of ivory and pink.

Take It Easy Travel

Last minute travel packing can sometimes be a hassle.
What should I take?

Versatile, low-maintenance clothing is key to packing light.
This is simple once you master the art of layering your clothes. Choose a color combination for your attire and pack only pieces that match and layer to create different looks (instead of packing completely separate outfits). These looks need to be comfortable for touring around, but can also be dressed up for the evening. They should also be appropriate for cool or warm weather, depending on your destination.

Your essential beauty products should be compact as well.
What do I have inside my travel makeup bag?


STOWAWAY COSMETICS has the right size makeup necessary for the trip. Perfect amounts that don’t go to waste- and the best part don’t take up much space in your bag. Just choose your BB Cream, Concealer, Cheek & Lip Rouge Lipstick shade and you’re good to go! (Oh, and don’t forget the Eyeliner and Defined Volume Mascara- there’s room enough for them as well!)

I can’t leave the house without a spritz of scent. Cherry Blossom by Yves Rocher is my favorite fresh and delicate fragrance for Spring and Summer that reminds me of Japan’s blossom season. The plus of it? It comes in a practical travel size that I can take anywhere without worrying about the weight.

One thing we need to worry about when traveling for business or vacation is changing climates. The best way to tame our hair is to use shampoo & conditioner climate control. Ouidad offers this travel set that protects against frizz in any climate.

Skin dehydration, dryness and redness can be caused by climate change, also. A essential skincare routine while traveling is a must. Paula Choice offers a two-week travel kit for Normal to Dry Skin in which are included the Cleanser, Moisturizer SPF 50, Repair Moisturizer and Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA (exfoliant).


Bon Voyage!
