From beauty products to books, I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving lately for travel and everyday… including this facial spray that I’m addicted to, a fun read about a year-long adventure in Paris, and, random, I know, but my favorite new toothbrush that is the perfect size for travel (not bulky and no charger!).
CAUDALIE BEAUTY ELIXIR
A friend recently gave me a bottle of Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir face spray, and I use it every day and night after I wash my face and a couple times in between. It feels and smells so refreshing (made with rose oil, rosemary, grape), and I love that it’s “clean” i.e. natural ingredients and free of all the bad stuff. It also comes in a travel size, perfect for keeping your skin from drying out during a flight!
I’m old school and always have a notebook or notepad with me, especially when I travel. I recently discovered Poppin which makes these great little soft cover notebooks for just $9. I always have one in my purse to jot down notes, lists, recommendations, etc.
ST. TROPEZ PURITY BRONZING WATER MOUSSE
Loving St. Tropez’s new ‘Purity’ self-tanning mousse. It’s vegan-friendly, cruelty free and made with naturally derived ingredients and goes on light and gradual for a subtle summer glow.
PARIS IN LOVE: A MEMOIR
I recently read Paris In Love: A Memoir by Eloisa James and it makes for a great summer or beach read. The author, a Shakespeare professor and writer, moved from New Jersey to Paris for a year with her husband and two children. The book is filled with exciting, funny and detailed excerpts from their year long Parisian adventure.
Never thought I’d be writing about a toothbrush, but I’m a sucker for design and I love how the Quip has the effect of an electric toothbrush, but it’s battery powered so there’s no charging and it doesn’t take up a bunch of room in your toiletry bag when traveling. The best part? A new toothbrush head (and a new battery) will be delivered to your door every 3 months, when it’s time to change them. One less thing to remember to pick up at the drugstore!
