A minimal fuss free hot destination wardrobe:

With some planning, your holiday wardrobe can be a well edited, smart compilation of pieces that allow you to mix and match for a combination of beach side and sunset outfits - without sending your suitcase over the weight limit.

 

We have pieces that are all within the same colour palette - navy, white with hits of red. Incorporate stripes and floral patterns to further spruce up these looks.

 

Bottoms take up more room in your suitcase - each one should be able to work well with multiple pieces.

 

Skirt - Pick an elastic waist midi pleated skirt without a strongly defined pleat along with a print that will mask any imperfections with your belting skills. Size up to make sure it will slide over your bust.

 

Trousers - Wide leg trousers are more dressy than a jogger. Being dressy is a much easier side of the equation to dress down than casual to dress up:)

 

Shorts:  - a simple clean front denim short can be dressed up or worn over your swimsuit.

"Beauty resolutions to make in 2019"

  1. Going cruelty-free: There's no need for most beauty products to be tested on animals, but unfortunately many companies still do. You have to be careful because some companies that were cruelty-free for years now test on animals because China requires companies to test on animals in order to sell products in the country. Customers should look for Leaping Bunny or PETA labels on products.
  2. Cutting down on plastic packaging:Beauty products are a huge source of plastic waste. The global cosmetics industry creates more than 120 BILLION units of packaging each year. A plastic bottle takes 1,000 years to decompose. While many of us recycle in the kitchen, stats show over 50% don't when it comes to bathroom products. Tips include choosing products packaged in clear, brown or green glass rather than plastic, looking for product packaging made of composted or recycled materials and remembering to fully rinse bottles and remove pumps or droppers before recycling.
    Some brands have their own internal recycling programs: two big ones to know about are Back to MAC (return or mail 6 empty lipstick tubes, which most city recycling systems can't process, and get a free lipstick) and Kiehl's which gives a free travel-sized product for every 10 containers you return.
  3. Free-from products: Consider this a New Year's diet for your skin– cut out the bad stuff and keep only the good. It can be hard to keep track but the major ones to exclude are Phthalates, Petroleum, Synthetic silicones, Formaldehyde and mineral oil.
  4. Stop excessive consumption/over-purchasing: The average women spends over $15,000 on beauty products in her lifetime. Bad for the bank account and bad for the planet. One very easy way to minimize your buying is to use products that have multiple uses: an exfoliating cleanser, a multistick for cheeks, eyes and lips, serums that tackle multiple concerns. Another is to actually make sure you're using all of your product: you may think a product is done, but especially when it comes to products in tubes, it's good practice to cut the tube open. You'll be surprised how much you find lurking in corners!
