This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Pack with Room to Spare

March, 4, 2014

Calling all you vacationers… From traveling so much for work, I’ve learned that streamlining my packing is critical. Otherwise, my suitcase becomes so heavy that it drags me around! Plan your wardrobe from the feet up. Base your clothes on a few pairs of shoes. And follow with makeup. MAC has compact products for the global gal.


They have travel-sized items like makeup remover and face cream. And then there’s Prep + Prime Lip, which keeps your lipstick looking vibrant all day…or night. When I met Fatima (above) New York Fashion Week celebrity artist she described it as, “Velcro for your lipstick.”

There is also a plethora of on-the-go products by Bobbi Brown, Cargo Cosmetics, and NARS. The above video shows you how to plan your travel makeup no matter what you like best. Have fun vacationers!
