Palm Springs Fashion

Success! I actually got a bit of color from my vacation and didn’t get burned!  It was so nice being able to relax and have more than one lazy day by the pool. Not to mention yummy coffee, cocktails and more. I wanted to do a quick round up of a few of the outfits I wore while I was in Palm Springs, and it’s making me more and more excited for summer time in Chicago as I type!

Does anyone have a few travel adventures planned in the coming weeks?! I am getting excited to see my girl Ella (MOD MED BLOG) in Birmingham, Alabama in later August! But I am sticking around Chicago for a bit and enjoying all that it has to offer.

XO.

Beauty and Travel Guide: Palm Springs

It’s been awhile since my last post! Some might think of Palm Springs as the center of Coachella festivities, while others like myself grew up knowing Palm Springs as a place of hot weather, lots of golfing, and retirement. The last few years, I have taken a vacation with my family and developed a new perspective on Palm Springs and love that it is becoming such a youthful and vibrant city!

That being said, I am excited to share my travel guide for Palm Springs, both what to do and what beauty products to travel with. Being a California native, writing this post makes me even more excited and I hope it gives you some ideas if you travel to the desert.

See below for a few of my travel musts when it comes to beauty products and places I am going to stop by over the holiday weekend!

Do you have any travel plans for Memorial Day Weekend? Please think positive thoughts as I hope to come back a bronzed warrior and not a red lobster.

Beauty Product Travel Necessities

Tula Multi-Spectrum Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment : I am going to be LIVING in the sun all day for the next week, so this is essential to make sure my skin is getting the moisture it needs at night. This cream is SO moisturizing and I wake up with bright, rejuvenated skin in the morning!

KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil: My one and only oil love that serves as my serum before I use my moisturizer and foundation!

KORRES Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturising and Brightening Cream: This moisturizer pairs so well with the Wild Rose Brightening Oil and it really lasts all day. My face never gets dry and has never irritated my skin since using it!

St. Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse 1.6 oz: I mean let’s face it, I am rather fair skinned, so I love using St. Tropez as a base before being out in the sun! It doesn’t streak, looks natural, and stays on for a few days before I have to reapply.

Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint – Ivory: I have always used the same liquid foundation so I am so glad I tried a sample of this from Sephora and ended up purchasing it! It is an all Vegan product with no oils or random ingredients. It gives me a bright ivory glow and has SPF too!
