how to: pack for a quick trip.

Happy Tuesday, glitter girls!

We’re headed back to Las Vegas this afternoon for a quick trip to the MAGIC tradeshow. We’ll land tonight, work all day Wednesday, and head home to Atlanta on the red-eye late Wednesday night. We’re packing light this time. Our plan:

Tuesday: Meetings + Flight

We both have meetings Tuesday morning (including a vanity necessary stop at DryBar) before our flight leaves, so we can’t just schlub it. Skinny jeans and vests will do us right and take us all the way to LV.

Tuesday Night: Drinks

Once we get to Vegas, I’ll keep the fur vest but swap the skinnies for leather shorts, the lace tee for a flowy top, and the boots for heels. Once key to packing light is to wear your bulkiest items on the plane. For me, that’s the fur vest and boots.

Wednesday: Tradeshow + Industry Happy Hour + Dinner + Flight

We always fight the urge to dress like twins when we’re together–our brains work the same way, so it’s tough! We’ll both be wearing versions of this cute, layered outfit for the tradeshow, happy hour at BCBG, one of our fave vendors, dinner and flight home late Wednesday night.

The Packing List:

skinnys // lace tee // fur vest // scarf // pashmina (for the plane) // black leather shorts // peachy flowy top // nude heels // black leggings // oversize tunic // gray suede boots // leather jacket // striped tee and extra sweater (you never know!) // curling iron //dry shampoo // notebooks and office supplies // phone charger

The Luggage:

We both have a version of the same Coach duffle, which is no longer available. This is probably the swan song for L’s duffle, though–ten years of weekly trips have taken their toll. Any suggestions for a replacement purchase?

The Manicure:

We’re both wearing Essie Sand Tropez, a perfectly neutral shade that won’t show chips during our whirlwind trip.

friday five.

Well hello, Friday. We meet again. Time to sort out our weekend plans. Here’s what we’re thinking:

1. Lipstick Love: Update your fall beauty routine with a new lipstick. Add a little sass to your everyday outfit, or some extra glam to a night look:

YSL Lipstick
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mat Lipstick 201 Orange Imagine. perfection.
Guerlain Lipstick
for a peachy/nude look like L loves, try Guerlain Rouge Automatique: Violette de Mad 101.
Two Faced Lipstick
Two Faced La Creme: Marshmallow Bunny is J’s idea of the perfect pink pout.

2. Crazy for Curls: We’re obsessed with perfectly twisted tendrils. Tight curls? Loose curls? Beachy waves? Love. Them. All. Here are our favorite looks:

Tight Curls.

4. Face Mask: After months of summer stress and workplace stress, L and I are getting our skin in check. A deep cleansing mask is a great way to start. Our suggestions:

Dr. Jart Face Mask
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic: Pore Clear Mask: leave on for 15-30mins and you’re left with tight pores and smooth skin.
Caudalie Face Mask
Caudalie: Vinopure Purifying Mask is absolutely amazing. You instantly feel tightening and softening of the skin. No harsh acids!
Jeunesse Face Mask
this quick and easy peel (from my fave, CVS) gets rid of dead skin in an instant.

5. Relax: By some miracle, L and I are both enjoying relaxing weekends at home with NO PLANS. After we wash off our masks (hello, new skin), we’re going to chill on our patios and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

Beverage Dispenser
let your guests sample a little of everything with this trio beverage dispenser!
Keep Calm Drinks Tray
our mantra for the weekend.
Tavern Outside Table
love this rustic outdoor furniture from pottery barn.

Here’s to a fantastic weekend!
