Favorite Travel Beauty Products + How To Pack Beauty

June 20th, 2022 by

The older I get, the more I appreciate systems. I know they don’t sound sexy, but systems make decisions easier and life run more smoothly. As a fly-by-the-seat of-my-pants kind of girl for most of my life, this is pretty revolutionary to admit. But after over a decade of helping other women pack, I’ve developed […]

What I Packed For Scotland | Europe Travel Capsule For Cooler Weather

June 10th, 2022 by

After years of planning and waiting, our trip to Scotland is finally here. (It was originally scheduled for the summer of 2020).

Last time we took a family vacation to Europe, Lola was 4 and Eva was 2. After months of planning and preparation, we arrived, ready for everything. Except international travel with a toddler. At one point, I made this desperate plea on Facebook: “I’m never going anywhere with Eva again. Ever. Please send our stuff.” […]
