While partnering with PureWow—the free daily email and website, which features the very best in culture, fashion, travel, tech & so much more—for an upcoming sweepstakes (you can win $3,000 toward a dream vacation), we discovered a kindred travel spirit. We asked them to share some of their tips with you, and they graciously agreed.
We’re delighted to bring you our first guest blogger: PureWow
Remember four months ago when you booked that desperate “I need a break” vacation? Good news: It’s here.
Whether your idea of Zen is zipping down the slopes or lounging by the waves, we’ve got the packing essentials you may have forgotten.
Ski In an effort to avoid looking like the abominable snowman, a pair of sleek, lightweight boots like these Tofino canvas ones from Sorel ($105) should be first in your tote ($95). Next, shield your sensitive skin with Clarins sunscreen ($26) and Nu Skin’s petrolatum-free lip balm ($6). And protect your second-most-sensitive asset–your iPhone–with Lifeproof’s winter-ready Frē case ($80).
Beach A luxurious beach getaway clearly necessitates a luxurious beach bag, like Marni’s vinyl parrot version ($350). Fill it with this zebra beach towel ($225) and a colorful caftan ($295). Finish off the breezy style with a spritz of Philip B.’s sea-salt hair mist ($22). Incapable of leaving your tech gadgets back in the hotel room? Let your phone enjoy the rays too, with the help of a solar-powered charger ($49).
