This weekend is our co-founder Katia’s one-year wedding anniversary. She and her husband Greg (also our video producer and sometime handyman) were married in Crete (fun fact: Hayley was the maid of honor). To celebrate their first year of marriage, Greg is whisking Katia off for a weekend getaway — and she has no idea where she is going. (Neither do we — he won’t give us a single hint!) This brings up an interesting beauty conundrum: what to pack when you don’t know where you’re going? We have some ideas.
Blow Faux Dry: It’s a well-known fact that Katia washes her hair as little as possible. Vacay is just another excuse to skip shampoo — this powder will ensure that she’s a tousle tressed goddess and not a greaseball.
Flea Bag in Pebble: This oversized satchel was made for travel: it’s casual enough for day, chic enough for night, and big enough to hold all the souvenir she’s going to buy for her favorite Birchbox staffers.
Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Apricot Berry: Ever since Katia got ahold of this sample, she’s been obsessed. Plus because it’s a blush and highlighter duo in one, she’s got even more room in her makeup bag.
Sircuit Molecular Mist: Katia discovered Sircuit’s skin-changing hydrating mist a year ago when she got a pre-wedding facial. It’s only approps that she take it along on this trip!
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Peony: Doesn’t this shade just make you happy? Yep, us too. It’s one of Jouer’s creamy, opaque glosses, which means it adds both color and shine.
Marais USA Espadrille Wedge in Emerald: Greg’s only instruction: bring comfortable shoes. These count, right? They’ll look equally cute with shorts, maxi dresses, and jeans.
Hope you are all off on your own weekend getaways!
