Under Eye Masks
When traveling under eye masks are a must! I usually have a couple hour of layovers and waiting all that time can be very tedious and tiring. I never get enough sleep and the best way to solve my puffiness and dark circles is using these magical little masks to hydrate and moisturize my skin.
These false lashes aren’t a travel must for everyone, but if your like me and need to take pictures everywhere you go to capture the moment, these tend to be useful. On my next trip I am going to the Blue Lagoon in Iceland and I will be in contact with water so wearing heavy makeup isn’t a good idea. Lash extensions at a salon are very convenient, especially in the summer, but their not for me. I had lash extensions done at a salon but, I had a allergic reaction or something and won’t be getting them done anymore. My eyes were very itchy, my vision was blurred, and my contacts were very irritated. Therefore, although they looked wonderful, they were really annoying and I don’t think I will get them done anytime in the near future. The best alternative is wearing false lashes. They are very easy to but on and to take off. If you put them on properly they can really look like your own lashes and the length looks amazing for those Instagram photos!
No matter where I go I always have my eyebrows done. I’ve been using Anastasia Brow Pomade for the past 2 years and I will never replace it with another product. It has a creamy consistency that glides on smoothly, its quick and easy to use, and its size is perfect for traveling.
Dior Eye Palette
I love using this Dior Palette for a natural clean look. When I’m traveling I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup and these neutral colors are perfect for that.
I received this Givenchy mini lipstick from Sephora as a Beauty Insider Member. Now they have it as a limited edition product. I am absolutly in love with this color and will definitely purchase another one soon. It looks great with a natural eye look and its perfect for a quick and on the go look.
This Hoola Bronzer from Benefit is my addiction. My makeup look is never complete without this bronzer. I’ve been using this product for a couple of years now and I will never find a product as good as this one.
When traveling taking care of your personal hygiene is a must! When you’re on a long flight, its important cleanse your face and take off your makeup. Let your pores breathe! If you really need makeup on go to a restroom after getting of your flight and apply a quick makeup look. Brushing your teeth is also a must. When traveling you’re around a lot of people and having fresh breath would be nice. The smell of sweat is also very unpleasant, especially when you stress. Deodorant is essential! Airports and airplanes tend to be very cold so you will probably get a runny nose so make are you have those tissues.
Victorias Secret has the best quality makeup bags. I’ve had this one for a couple years now, used it as a makeup bag and pencil case, and it still looks brand new. Its very girly and cute. Its not that big so its perfect for traveling.
Gum & Mints
These help with fresh breath and ear popping. I have so much more gum and mints, which I wont even finish, but I like having all these because it gives me a lot of variety to choose from.
I probably actually read about 10 whole books, without using spark notes, over the past 20 years. I hate reading. I can’t focus while reading. I think about other things. I get bored. It’s not for me. Although I’m not a fan, I do like reading magazines and looking through pages with fashion and makeup.
I purchased my luggage in TJMaxx. I fell in love with this design by Nine West and had to have it. I find that having a luggage that is different from everyone else is easier to find and makes things quicker.
I had two layovers at night so coffee was a must. My travel time is 23 hours and I only got 1 hour of sleep on my flight to Iceland. I can’t stop yawning right now! I got to Iceland at 12 midnight and I will be up until 4 pm so another coffee will be needed. The coffee pictured was from Costa and it was a medium Viva Vanilla Iced Coffee with dried strawberries on top. It smelled like heaven. I was also starving so I had a blueberry muffin from Costa. Then once I got to Iceland I had a turkey sandwich.
What Airlines Do I Use?
Wow AIRLINES (Best Prices)
Lufthansa AIRLINES (Most comfortable / My favorite Airline)
Before you buy your tickets check a countries regulations. I learned to check last year when my brother was flying back to the USA. The policy in Poland is that you can’t stay in Poland for more than 3 months on an American passport. He was studying in Poland all year so he crossed his 3 month regulation. Even though he is a Polish citizen, he still needs a polish passport to travel and we haven’t used ours since we were little so the yelped. His whole flight ha dot be canceled, since he was in Warsaw I had to book him a note, and his whole return ticket from the USA was canceled as well. I had to get him a new ticket to the UK and from there he got on a flight to the USA. It was a long a confusing process and I hope it never happens again. Try to avoid something like this from happening by checking the regulations first.
Love of My Life
Everyone keeps on asking me if I will miss my boyfriend. What kind of question is that.. of course I will. I didn’t just one day decide that I want to go away for 2 months. I always go either to Poland or the USA for the summer so for me its the same thing as always, except now I have Daniel. I’m used to being away from someone I love so I’m not really worried that much about it. When I was younger I ways away from my mom for the whole summer and this year I was away from her for a whole year. So even though it might be hard, I think that this will make our relationship grow even more. It will help us work on our trust, communication, and our future with one another. Even though I’ll be so far way that doesn’t mean I’ll stop loving him.
