It’s that time again – time to plan your next vacation! Whether you’re escaping to warmer temperatures on Spring Break or planning your big summer vacation in a few months, you know you want to look and feel your best when you’re away. Health and fitness expert Mayling Kajiya understands the importance of feeling your best and has created 5 beauty tips that every woman should have on hand when packing up for a vacation. Keep these on hand from plane ride to pool side to help look and feel your best so you can enjoy every moment of your R&R!
Tip #1: Stay Moisturized For those that are jetsetting to warmer destinations, a flight can do some damage on your skin – cabin pressure, change in temperature and moisture going from one destination to the next are all culprits of leaving skin dry. To keep skin hydrated, apply intense moisturizer the night before your flight and nix the foundation, as well as applying after days in the sun. This will help increase hydration in your skin before you’re exposed to the dehydrating effects of traveling. Foundation can make skin look oily – sticking strictly with moisturizer can keep skin hydrated longer, making you look your best! We love this Repêchage Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray www.repechage.com because it’s easy to carry in your purse and will keep you moisturized – spritz some on during the flight, after a day in the sun or before a night out and keep skin perfectly fresh!
Tip #2: Look great, no matter what “time of the month” it may be We girls know that “that time” comes around RIGHT when you don’t want it – unnecessary bloating, horrible cramps that can leave you feeling terrible – and that’s the LAST look you’ll want to flaunt in a bathing suit. To combat PMS symptoms, try Girl Uninterrupted®, a fresh, new and all-natural approach to PMS relief. It’s composed of an all-natural blend of essential amino acids and herbs that have been specifically formulated to directly address those common symptoms of PMS. With Girl Uninterrupted, you’ll be able to curb the cramping and bloating so you’ll be able to sit poolside without aches, pains or those terrible mood swings.
Tip #3: Pack Light and Focus on “Bare Necessities” We as women know beauty product loyalty – once you find a lotion, shampoo/conditioner, or makeup brand that works, we tend to buy it in bulk for years to come. To make sure you have your must-haves on a trip, make your own travel sized essentials! Take small lotion or travel sized shampoo bottles and clean them out, adding in your favorite brands. This will allow you to bring your fave essentials without lugging the huge bottles of shampoo around in your suitcase.
Tip #4: Keep Your Eyes on the Prize No matter how you travel, it can be exhausting – hours spent waiting to board, driving in the car or sitting on a bus can leave you with puffy, tired and (sometimes) mascara-streaked eyes after dozing off. To combat the signs of fatigue, bring along eye drops in a carry on or purse - it will take the redness out of your eyes and make them look alive. To combat puffiness, bring along a washcloth and fill with crushed ice, placing under your eyes. The cold ice will wake you up and decrease any puffy eyes. While you’re on vacation, bring along a jar of Suki Eye Lift Radiance Renewal Cream at www.suki.com. Light and compact, this cream will help keep puffiness away throughout your vacation and keep you looking your best.
Tip #5: Nude Colors and Tones Traveling to tropical destinations can be the cause for bright colored nail polish, but experts say it’s best to travel with nude tones on your tips. Colored polish, if chipped, looks unclean and unfinished. Sticking with nude tones will keep you looking fresh and put together without going overboard. Foundation is the same – keep it simple. Stick to cream-based foundations such Jane Iredale’s In Touch® Cream Blush www.janeiredale.com. Unlike powder blushes that are hard to even out on the go, cream-based makeup will provide a more even cover and can be placed in a purse/clutch when out.

Winter Weekend Family Getaway to D.C.
Our Poshbrood just returned from a re-energizing winter weekend in the nation’s capitol…no crowds, indoor and outdoor fun, and lots to do.
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel Palomar (a Kimpton Hotel) in DuPont Circle, we knew we got it right.
Great location, hip and stylish design, high energy, and service-oriented staff which all the hit mark for me and my husband.
The family-friendly touches made the kids feel welcome…choice of a toy at check-in, milk and cookies on request, spacious rooms to unwind, DVD movie library, and a hot chocolate bar with all the fixings at the daily drinks bar in the lobby.
BTW there are leopard print pint-sized robes and you can also request a pet goldfish for your room! Our boys were in heaven!
We stayed in a 500 sq foot Executive Room with two queen beds. The room had a flat screen, street view, all updated decor. It was perfect!
We don’t usually recommend hotel restaurants but…the hotel restaurant, Urbana, was a fabulous culinary experience. It attracted outsiders as well as hotel guests and it was incredibly easy with the kids.
Anthony Pilla the pizza master is a new addition to the restaurant but already a regular attraction. Our boys and more than a few adults were mesmerized as he practiced his craft of twirling dough high in the air and made his delish pizzas right in front of you. There were plenty of other items on the menu and we also loved the homemade gnocchi.
Newly opened (formerly Cool Disco Donuts), it is feast for the senses with its vibrant interior design, engaging staff and transformative donuts in outrageous flavors——Salted Caramel, Vanilla Ice, Ferraro Roche, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter and Bacon.
If you visit the Spy Museum(a Poshbrood fave!), grab a bite nearby at Ella’s pizza which is a local favorite.
We did the major sites taking the hop on/off bus tours for the first time. It was a good way to cover a lot of ground, warm up between sites, and ride the double decker.
We hit the biggies…tour of the Capitol, the Mall, the American and Natural History Museums, Air and Space, and Union Station. (Check out Fantom Comics - nice selection, helpful staff.)
It was just the right amount of sightseeing for a long weekend and wonderful memories to kick off 2013’s travel itinerary (a bit of culture was the icing on the donut)!
