A Travel-Sized Beauty Routine

Like many travelers,
I find myself constantly adjusting between worlds...

Whether it be a posh tea room in a bustling city in the first-world,
or a lush tropical setting in a remote third-world setting...
when we travel, our senses {& our standards} are always adjusting.

We dress up for dinner. 
We dress down for the market.

We have our hair blown out for a brunch.
We throw our hair up for a jeep ride in the sun.

From hiking boots to spikey heels...
the most satisfied travelers are, most definitely, 
those who can adapt to our these environments.

And most of the time,
these environments offer us unappealing showers in a dim-lit bathroom...
and a personal longing for a footed tub.

Any traveler would agree,
than our Western Culture demands.

I've learned to be lower maintenance because of it:
I wash my hair about once a week,
I keep my make up to a small bag that fits in my purse,
& I re-wear my clothes like it's nobody's business...
& I don't always shower every day.

{Go on & judge me... but I'm highly confident in my lack of body odor.}

So when you find yourself on the road
{or simply on an overnight flight}
try a few of my favorite fixes
to have you feeling first-world clean
when your beauty regime is on the third-world scene.

Tresemme Dry Shampoo | Asprey Purple Water Perfume £45 | Banana Republic Tights |
Susan Posnick ColorFlo $64.00 | Target Eye Make Up Remover $3.75 |

What's the first thing you ditch on the fly?
Any great advice or products you can recommend?
