Fashion on the go: Travel Beauty Tips

Hi guys,

So this is a reupload because somehow it didn’t display this post right the last time. I hope you’ll forgive me that I’m not posting anything new, but I have so much going on at the moment: school and I’m doing this riding exam and it’s all really eating up my time so excuse me if my posts aren’t as frequent as they usually are.

Without further ado let’s get started with the 3rd post in this “Fashion on the go” -Series. Enjoy:

1. BB Cream

BB cream
I absolutely love this product, especially for travelling. It moisturises your skin which is very useful because airplanes can dry it out so easily. It also doesn’t feel like you have a ton of makeup on your face but still gives you some coverage. I think every girl should have a tube of BB cream lying around.

White eyeliner

Eyeliner
Let’s face it if you would go on a long flight with perfect cat eyes, you’ll probabley arrive looking like a racoon. And who wants that? Thats why I stay away from the black eyeliner and instead just try to look as awake and fresh as possible. White eyeliner is subtle but if you put it on your waterline and the corner of your eye it can really open them up. Plus, if it smudges you don’t see it.

Clear top coat

Nail Polish
Good news girls: You can color your nails to your hearts content, because only the cheapest nail polishes chip after a few hours. But remember to seal with a top coat so that they’ll survive all the luggage carrying!

No waterproof Mascara

This is a big no. You might think:”I want my mascara to last so I better put on waterproof.” It makes sense but if you go to sleep with waterproof mascara you might break of your lovely lashes, and no mascara will be able to cover that up. Rather keep a packet of makeup wipes in your hand luggage just in case.

Hair

You can leave it open but a lot of people prefer to have their hair out of their face. And there are so many easy ways to do it. Since you’ll probably be sleeping I would recommend to either wear your hair in a braid or in a very high bun. If you want some braiding pointers check out my Braids 101 post.

I hope you enjoyed my post and apologies again.

Fashion on the go: Travel outfit tips

Hi guys,

Another travel post and this time we’ll be checking out how to travel comfortably and fashionably. Only 27 days left till I leave, this is so exciting.
Let’s get started:

1.) Leggings

They are your best friend for traveling and no wonder, it’s like you’re travelling in your sweatpants! They also come in various prints and colors, plus if you prefer jeans then you can go for jeggings (=leggings that look like jeans). If you decide to wear leggings you should make sure to wear it with a long top , because as comfortable as leggings are and even though you can find a pair in every girls closet: they aren’t pants ladies!

2.) Layers

Layers are pretty much essential for travelling. The whole point of layering is to be able to take a clothing item off if you’re to hot or add a clothing item if you’re to cold. Especially when flying I found this , method to be very effective since you mostly need more layers whem you’re in the air.
A great way to layer is to wear a tank top with a sweater over it and to carry a jacket in case it gets very cold. Additionally this look will look awesome with your leggings.

3.) Scarfs

This pretty much belongs to layering but I think a scarf is double essential when it comes to travelling. It keeps you warm and by choosing the right pattern and color it can spice up your outfit.

4.) A big bag

If you’re anything like me you always struggle with the weight of your luggage, especially on your way home. That’s why I need a big bag to travel with, but it still has to be small enough to not count as my hand luggage. I also prefer having all important stuff with me at all times, instead of having to stand up and cram it out from my suitcase in the over-head locker.

5.) Metall

Girls if you’re travelling via airplane please, please follow this tip: leave your jewellery,  your fat belt and any other accessories that contain or may contain metall in your luggage. You’ll be doing everybody a favor. Because when I’m standing in line, all ready to finally get my seventeen magazine or whatever in duty-free I don’t want to have to wait for the women in front of me to take off all her jewellery.  And I’m saying this out of experience, because the woman is mostly my mother.

These are my top 5 outfit tips for flying, I hope they were useful and I hope wherever you go that you arrive there savely and , most importantly,  fashionably.
(I think I need to sort out my priorities. )

Until next week guys,

Fashion on the go: Non-Beauty Travel essentials

Hi guys,

I hope you had a lovely week, to be honest mine wasn’t that good, except for the weekend, because I manged to break my favorite pair of ankle boots. But anyway…

Welcome to this weeks post and I’m going to start it off with a huge announcement: in exactly 33 days I’m leaving for America. I’m really excited about it, I’ve never been and my family and I are visiting great places. I figured that for this I could do a little special. It will probably contain 3 posts with tips to travel comfortably but still fashionably. Let’s get started with today’s post: Non-Beauty Travel essentials

1.) Hand Sanitiser

Airplanes, airports, train stations, trains, boats… anything to do with public transport is designed to carry a lot of people and because of that they aren’t the most hygienic places. I anyway always like to carry some hand sanitiser with me and I would definitely recommend it when travelling.

2.) Water

When travelling you want to stay hydrated. You move around a lot, have to carry heavy bags and if you fly, you have to sit in a stuffy vessel for a few hours tops. One thing to put on your duty-free shopping list should definitely be water.

3.) Phone

Do I even have to explain this one? It’s the best invention ever simply because it means we aren’t completely helpless if something doesn’t go as planned, plus if you get bored you can always play a game on it.

4.) Music

image

You don’t necessarily need an ipod for this, all smartphones have a music application on them, which also means less to carry

5. ) Headphones

Headphones
If you want to listen to music you need headphones.  It would be just plain rude to listen to music on loudspeaker and it won’t make you popular with the other passengers.
These by Frends have been on my wish list for like… forever. They are an accessory by themselves and personally, for travelling I prefer overear headphones.

6.) Eye mask

Eye mask
Even though they switch some lights off in the plane, it’s still to bright for me. And these I masks are to cute to resist.

I hope this post was useful. I mostly based it on my experience.
