Being that I’ll be turning 44 in a little over five months (GAH!!) I have become slightly obsessed with tracking down serums, potions and beauty essentials that will keep those fine eye and mouth lines at bay. Of course my 15 year old makes it a point to remind me on a regular basis that the mole on my forehead seems to be growing larger by the day- but that is a post for another day. But of truth be told I have to admit growing older I’ve found that certain things seems to be growing while others are shrinking. And while I know attaining the taut, creamy skin of say my 15 year old daughter would be a PARTING OF THE RED SEA type of miracle, I am not ready to give up on my skin or my body when it comes to my daily workout routine or even a weekend away. I always like to be prepared with the essentials!
So whether you are going to Coachella, or you are planning a weekend away , it’s never too early to start thinking about what you need to pack! Be sure to have these beauty necessities ready before you head to the desert or the bed and breakfast – so you’ll be looking fresh, styled and festival ready all weekend long! Here are just a few of my must have beauty essentials that will take you to super party and pretty in two shakes of a lamb’s tail!
