Hi from Park City, Utah! It’s currently 22 degrees outside and snowing. While I’m not usually one for cold weather, this place is beautiful. I travel here often with the family that I nanny for, and at any time of the year it is truly unbelievable. The trees are either full and green in the spring and summer, golden in the fall, or covered in snow in the winter. I totally think that I’m suffering from a mean case of cabin fever, so I’ve been sitting here planning things for the kids and I to do before I leave on Saturday. Anyways, a life update is not the topic of this post! Here are some of my must-haves from this week of travels! 


Make-Up Bag

So, my toiletry bag fell apart during my last travel adventure, so I searched Amazon for a while to pick a new one. I decided to try this one. It’s a little weird to explain, but basically, it lays flat, so that all of your products can be seen. When you want to close it, you pull the drawstrings, and secure it with the velcro. It’s pouch-like. I really love it for my makeup. It makes getting ready in a bathroom that isn’t yours so much easier. 


Sam Edelman Boots 

I grabbed these at Nordstrom Rack at the end of the summer hoping that I’d get some good use out of them. They’ve been the star of this Utah trip. Not only are they super comfortable, but they are also really warm. It’s been fun wearing them with different socks to make any outfit a little more “Utah.” I wore them through the airport and on the plane and I was pleasantly surprised that they were easy to slip on and off at security. I’ll link similar styles!

Warm Essentials Layers 

These aren’t the most fancy, intense warm layers out there, but let me tell you, they work. I’ve been wearing this brand ever since back in the day when I played lacrosse. Some games were frigid and they never let me down. Most styles have thumb holes which I appreciate because it keeps the snow from sneaking under my jacket at the wrists when I’m playing in the snow with the kids. Shop here.


L’Oreal Glotion 
This is my ride-or-die product right now. It has been for the last year or so— ever since L’oreal’s “Lumi” line came out. My answer to the question, “If you could only use one make-up product for the rest of your life what would it be?” used to be mascara, however, after this trip to UT I’ve decided this would be my answer. I don’t have much time in the morning to make myself feel human with the kiddos running around needing to be entertained, so I just swipe this all over my face, and ta-da, I have a little color and glow to my face. I wear the shade medium and blend it down to my neck. I crave the tan life. 


Olly Hair growth vitamins 

Let me explain how I know these are working. My baby hairs are out of control. I threw my thin hair up into a ponytail the other day and within an hour, new hair was in my face. I was literally jumping up and down at the growth. I’ve struggled with my hair ever since this time last year, and never felt like anything I took or any products that I used actually worked. But between taking two of these gummies a day, a 500mg biotin pill, and Vitron-C, I’m ready to watch my hair get even better.
