What’s In My Travel Bag

I am leaving for Chicago in a few hours and I have for the first time in my post-blogging life been able to fit all of my makeup in to a single small cosmetic bag. It’s a miracle I tell you!! In the past, my suitcase was always under the allotted weight allowance until I packed my cosmetic bag. Five pounds give or take. I used to pack on the premise of “What if?” and had more options for a week than I would ever conceivably use in a month. I was a total contradiction because I am always very practical and reasonable when it comes to packing clothes and accessories.

This time I put my foot down and edited down to only the products I use in a regular week. Chicago is going through a veritable heat wave with temperatures hovering at 50*C with humidity so I am going to wear thin layers and the bare minimum focusing on waterproof products. Nobody wants to have makeup bleeding down their face in rivulets of sweat.

Do you find it difficult to pack for vacations in different climates?

    I find it hard to pack for different climates. Although, I’ve made it a rule to always pack a jacket or hoodie…no matter where we are headed. I get easily chilled, so, yeah. 😉

    I may need to try the Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel!

I love to hear your thoughts!
