What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

Travel Makeup Kit

It’s not surprising at a Starlet over-packs.  So she must cut corners anywhere she can while still retaining her glamour.  So I have a small travel makeup kit that I keep packed for any last minute getaways, including tools and products that I can use to get a variety of different looks.

How to Keep a Bombshell Figure While Traveling

You work hard for your Bombshell figureYou eat right (with the exception of occasional treats), and you work out… so don’t let that all go to waste on vacation or while traveling.  I’m not suggesting that you deprive yourself… that is definitely not the Starlet way.  I’m suggestion that you indulge smartly while you are away from home.  There are some tips…

Only eat out once a day.  This can be tricky depending on where you are going but I aim for saving my indulgences for dinner (with the exception of a really great breakfast diner).  First, I always try to get a hotel room with a fridge.  That way I can go to the nearest grocery store and get some basics.

For Breakfast, I bought a new travel blender for making my morning green smoothies.  I just pick up some almond milk when I arrive…

What’s in My Bag?

Everyday Starlet Whats in My Bag

Ever since I started Everyday Starlet I have been wanting to do a What’s in My Bag? video.  I’m always curious what people carry around in their handbags.  So here it is… the video is a little long, but I carry a lot.  I have a big bag that I carry for work and for long days where I’m running around and need a book or water or other essentials.  I carry a small cross body bag as a sort of wallet/essentials bag that I can take out of I’m just running to the store… or maybe going out to a bar after work.  This way I’m ready for anything… because Starlets never know where the day will take them… (more…)

There is one person a Starlet values above all else.  A person she tells all her deepest secrets and a person she entrusts with her most valuable asset… her hair.  I am, of course, talking about her hairdresser.  A true Starlet does not settle for just any stylist.  She searches for the perfect match, and she considers her hairdresser her partner in creating her look.

Glamorous Summer Fragrances

There is nothing quite like the sense of smell.  In the summer time, a heavy fragrance isn’t need.  Usually a light and floral scent is appropriate.  Of course everyone’s body chemistry reacts to different perfumes differently.  So the best way to find a favorite fragrance is basic trial and error.  These are some of my favorite Starlet summer scents… (more…)

It’s so important to have goals.  There is definitely something to putting your wishes out in the universe.  In the past I’ve let seasons go by, wishing things would happen, but never really making an effort.  A few summers ago I made a list of goals for summer…just a few silly things that I really wanted to do.  I was shocked when all of those things happened, and I had some of the best times of my life.  So now I try to make goals each season.  I’m in very good company, because some of my favorite bloggers, like The Glamorous Housewife and Cupcakes & Cashmere, do the same thing.  Here are some of my goals for Summer 2014: (more…)
