Top 5 Beauty Essentials for Autumn – 2018 Edition

In August, we went back to California (as we always do) and we stayed for almost 20 days – it may seem a bit…

One of the reasons why I almost always check my luggage is because I cannot stand the idea (and effort) of decanting (probably due to the amount of travel that I do), and I am grateful that some brands really have upped their game in this department – and we are not talking samples, but real ranges of the products that you need.
