Feeling & Looking Glamorous While Traveling

There was a time when traveling was glamorous. When ocean liners still crossed the Atlantic with nightly ballroom dances and men donned a suit and tie to fly. Fast forward to our present day of roaming backpackers and jam packed tour buses and one might secretly long for a bygone era. Luckily there are a few tricks of the trade to adding a little glamour to your next trip without sacrificing your comfy in flight sweat pants.

• Stock up on Samples—prior to traveling, swing buy any beauty or makeup counter for samples of beauty products, skin care & perfume samples. In place of your full sized drugstore anti wrinkle cream, you now have a free small portable 7 day sample of an owe so expensive department store cream.

• Indulge in Decedent Chocolate—every airport duty shop is filled with stores that sell the specified country’s national gourmet chocolate. Pick up a piece or two,, and when your fellow air passengers are eyeing their unidentified lump that suffices as desert in the land of airplane food—whip out your gold wrapped chocolates and enjoy.

• An Elegant Pen—invest in a nice pen, you will find you use it often—postcards home, immigration forms, journal entries, etc. and a classy pen is much more pleasurable to use than the old BIC pen buried at the bottom of your purse.

• Duty Free Shop—feeling a little travel worn at the airport, head to the nearest duty free shop—try out the lotions, makeup, perfume and every other beauty product known to man. You’ll kill some time, freshen up your look and board the plane feeling like a million bucks.

• In Flight Reviver—ask anyone who has just gotten of an overseas flight what they want to do, and they will inevitable say “take a shower”. Combat, or at least postpone this overwhelming desire by packing baby wipes in your carry on bag. Shortly before the plane begins its decent (and getting up from your seat becomes a no-no) head to the restroom and give yourself a quick “bath” with your baby wipes. Wash your face and wipe as much as your body down as you can manage in the confines of the airplane bathroom.

• Fresh Flowers Weekly—for the price of a latte or two you can have a pleasurable addition to your hotel.

• Red Lipstick is a Must—light, bright, dark or pale—find your shade of red and never leave home without it.

• A Sparkle or Two—a distinctive piece of jewelry or two can take any outfit from road rumpled to casual chic.

• Silk Scarves—how to the Europeans manage to look so pulled together even in the dead of winter? It’s the well worn scarf, it dresses up any outfit while still keeping you toasty warm.

• Evian Facial Water—work past your qualms about paying for water in a bottle, and pick up a travel sized spray bottle of Evian water. You will be amazed at how refreshing it feels in hot weather, and your makeup will not smudge or budge as is the case of a quick splash of water from a sink.

• Arrange an Airport Pick Up—shell out a few extra dollars and arrange to have a car service waiting for you when you get off the plane. Seeing a driver awaiting with a sign with your name on it makes life not only a little more glamorous, but easy and reassuring as well.
