Alright, kids! It’s time to round up my picks for the holidays- whether you’re a total travel girl or you know a girl who’s on the road and loves to look and feel good (who doesn’t?), these gorgeous Gab Bag finds are what I’m currently obsessed with: 


Any hair products I travel with have got to be easy to transport, and Iles Formula makes a fantastic Haute Performance shampoo and conditioner wrapped up in a paper pack, what’s better than that! It took up no space in my bag and kept my hair feeling fresh. 
I am back into loving flat, straight shiny hair these days and Foxybae makes possibly the best flatiron I’ve ever tried. It is compact, heats up super quickly and I was able to use it overseas, easily as it traveled well and didn’t compromise the power source in my hotel room! Tres important.  To top it off, I added some Supershine Moisturizing Cream on top for extra shine and lustre and I felt fabulous. 


At 42, skin has become a serious priority and I have recently discovered FULFILL Wrinkle Filler by Dermarche which is simply amazing. Visible results on my face at only 2 weeks in so I am truly loving it. Plus, their Roloxin Lift Masks come in small individual packets that fit into any makeup bag. Apply, wait 10 minutes, rinse and see the glow!  I’ve also had the fortune of recently discovering Shea Terra products, curated with unique elements sourced from the leader’s beloved Africa. The Moabi Beauty Butter can combat even the driest of areas on your skin and the Cape Lavender Water is the ultimate spritz liftup in flight, and it’s under 3 ounces!  


I find myself currently unable to live without Coola’s Nude Beach lip balm. Not only does it moisturize but they’ve managed to blend the perfect color that looks amazing, without trying too hard- no matter what your makeup palette is.  Plus, I wore it skydiving in the freezing cold and it kept my lips perfectly soft and smooth.  No better test than that… Their BB Cream is also fantastic on the face, keeping you looking like you didn’t put makeup on at all and giving you a natural glow.
