When it comes to travel, I’m not what you would call a “light packer.” In fact, I bring a travel scale to make sure my bag doesn’t go over the weight limit when flying. I just figure, if the airline allows you 50 pounds, may as well be prepared.

However, when it comes to packing my beauty products, I pretty much have that process streamlined. I always have my travel beauty kit, with the exception of my makeup bag, stowed in my carry-on, ready for the next getaway.

As you may recall, I went on a cruise in January so today, as I open up my kit to share my Travel Beauty Essentials, I’m using pics from the ship and our stops in Cozumel, Honduras and Belize as the backdrop.

Every year when Pantone announces the Color of the Year, I get excited to see all the new beauty products and accessories start rolling out. Obviously, this green lover hit the mother lode when Emerald was selected last year.

For 2014, the color is Radiant Orchid, a warm, pink-y purple. Even though we’re barely into 2014, there are a number of great makeup options to help you adopt the trend. Now, warm purples aren’t usually my jam so I loved the challenge of finding ten wearable items, in the it color of 2014, for the latest edition of Top Ten Tuesday.

If there’s one big color trend from The Oscars 2014, it would be a lack of color, as nudes ruled the day. From barely there lips and tips to flesh-toned gowns, this is one Oscar year when the red carpet didn’t have a lot to compete with. Of course, there were a few standout moments but they were few and far between.

Fall 2013 Nail Trends at Saks Fifth Avenue Beachwood

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of hosting an event at Saks Fifth Avenue Beachwood. The focus was Fall 2013 Nail Trends and I had a blast. I loved meeting other Cleveland nail polish fanatics and talking fall nail color.  To the readers and fellow bloggers who came out from behind the screen to say hi, thank you for coming. It was wonderful putting a face with a name.

We enjoyed bubbles, ridiculously good nail polish-shaped cookies from Bon Bon, hand and arm massages from Jo Malone and nail polish changes from local manicurists.

On top of that, I put together a nail trend display featuring nail colors sold at Saks. You may not normally think Saks when shopping for nail polish but, they have all the familiar prestige and luxury brands plus some you don’t normally see, like Tom Ford, Armani and Le Metier de Beaute.
