Top Travel Accessories for Busy Ladies on the Go

Ladies, we don't have time to mess around, especially when we're traveling during the summer. Sadly life has a way of throwing us curve balls, but no worries.

You are the Mcgyver of menses!

With your top travel accessory--U by Kotex CleanWear Ultra Thin pads with 3D Capture Core plus XPress DRI--you are down for anything.

Is it a panty-saving super hero of a feminine napkin? Yes!

But it's so much more. I've seen these babies used for everything from nail art to DIY crafts, but for you travel-savvy ladies I have a whole new way to help you condense your luggage, get in the carry-on only line and keep your vacation on track.

We all know vacation is about more than the tropical drinks and sightseeing. It's about the sleep!

Velvet 59 in a Nutshell

Velvet 59 is a new-to-me beauty brand founded by young beauty aficionado, Paris Manning. Her line was inspired by her love of vintage glamour (we share some of the same favorite silver screen starlets it seems), her worldwide travels and a desire to remain as eco-conscious as possible. Velvet 59 is even vegan, paraben-free and gluten-free!
