My travel essentials!
Renee at Cottage and Vine is having a fun party. She says: “The question is, if you are going away for the weekend and can only take five products, in your cosmetic bag, what would they be. “
Well, I couldn’t resist. I travel a lot: some trips are short-weekenders and others are weeks-long-across-the-pond kinds of trips. Even for the short variety, if I am flying, I am NOT a carry-on gal. No, if I go somewhere I want to be prepared…

And for my hair, a nice thick conditioner from Bumble and Bumble:
So, what would you pack in this essential kit??
