Disclaimer: I am not a light packer when it comes to beauty. I used to just throw all my beauty counter in a bag and call it a day. Over the years, I have learned to pack smart for every different location depending on the weather. I have also made skincare a priority and I feel that I don’t bring as much make-up as I did before (even though there is a lot of make-up in this post!).
Regarding color, as in what lipsticks and eye-shadows I bring with me, I get really inspired by the patterns and prints of my outfits. When traveling to hot humid weather printed shorts, flowy caftans and comfy dressy sandals are always on the top of my list.
This past week we were in Austin with my hubby, he was on a work trip and I was exploring the city and visiting a friend. It was great specially because we got to walk everywhere which is refreshing since we can’t do that in Houston. One of our favorite places to eat was on South Congress Avenue, called Perla’s (Thank you to my friend Paola for the recommendation). They specialize in seafood and have a beautiful terrace. We enjoyed some drinks and a grilled spicy octopus (yum!).
