Check out my list of 5 Haute Travel Beauty Picks for Fall: 1. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Venom Urban Decay’s Revolution Lip Color is creamy and rich lipstick gives amazing color and lasts all day, even through meals. This raspberry-esque color will give a Fall look to any complexion. It is my go-to color for the Fall season. $22, Urban Decay. 2. Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion Whilst in Puerto Rico, I visited ┬áKiehl’s boutique and stumbled across this wonderful hydrating lotion. Made with Fairly-Traded Argan Oil, it goes on incredibly smooth and gives your body a nice, healthy sheen, which is needed as the weather gets colder and your skin may be drying out. $38, Kiehl’s.

And just a few dabs will do. Use after cleaning your face as a moisturizer. You will love it as much as I do. $32, OSEA. 4.

Travel Sized Beauty Made Simple with Sephora’s Beauty on the Fly

As a self-proclaimed beauty enthusiast, I have found it sometimes hard to be able to travel with everything I need without overpacking. A girl has to have her products for her hair, her skin, plus makeup, and shower and body essentials. It can be overwhelming. Which is why the beauty professionals at Sephora have made it easier to get the items you need in a small size perfect for travel. Feast your eyes on Sephora’s newest beauty enclave within their store: Beauty on the Fly. Previously, it was the area right before the cashier stations that allowed you to get small and sample sizes of some of your favorite beauty products. Now, it is enhanced for all of us Fly Mamas out there who are always on the go. It features a wide range of beauty essentials that are travel sized and TSA compliant.   And what’s even better, when you buy three products from the Beauty on the Fly area, you get a TSA compliant see-through travel bag to put everything in—for free. It’s perfect for travel, and can be taken out of your carry on and screened in a snap. During a recent trip to Sephora, I perused the Beauty on the Fly area and found it to have just about everything a girl needs to stay fabulous while she is globe-trotting. Everything from dry shampoo, to argan oil, you name it, Sephora’s Beauty on the Fly has it. And everything is reasonably priced, too. So forget those regular size beauty accouterments at home. Sephora’s got your back with their Beauty on the Fly zone. Oh, and if you didn’t know, Sephora will send you home with hand-packed samples of just about anything they have in the store at no charge. That is also a good way to get a small amount of product for a trip if need be....

Travel Style: Maxi Dresses

Now that the weather is warming up for most of us in the U.S., it is time to re-visit our travel style. Gone are the days of jeans, tights, and blazers. Now we can usher in some items that are lighter and perfect for the Spring and Summer climates. One of my favorite go-to clothing options for travel are maxi dresses. Maxi dresses are super comfy, affordable, and look fabulous on almost any size or shape. They can also be dressed up or down, so if you have to go straight from a flight to an event, you can do so with a maxi dress. Change the shoes, add accessories, and viola, you are ready. Here are a few maxi dress looks that are great for travel:   This black maxi dress from H&M can be worn dressed up or down and is perfect for travel. Add a sweater or jean jacket for the plane, which tends to be a little cold, and you are ready to go. $20, H&M. I love this colorblocked maxi dress from Vicky Tiel that can be found at Kohl’s. It’s fab, stylish, and is travel ready. $60, Kohl’s. I personally own this Chevron Maxi Dress and I love it. It is so comfy and looks cute on too. I added a jean jacket to it since it was a little chilly in Los Angeles. $22.80, Forever 21. This Jersey Tank Maxi Dress from Felicity & Coco is too cute. Pair it with flats, heels, or wedges, and then you are on your way! $78.00, Nordstrom This Jet Set Maxi Dress was made for travel. The high slit allows you to walk through the airport without “tripping” on the dress, and it’s got a compass on it to “guide” you. At $118, it’s indeed a splurge, but for the fab girl on the go, you deserve it! Nordstom.com. With so many maxi dress style options, you are sure to find one that fits your personality. Happy...
