HOW TO PACK LIGHT - BEST IN BEAUTY TRAVEL SIZE

We love any excuse to travel - a quick little road trip up the coast or a 5 hour flight to visit family at the home we grew up at.  No matter where we are going, suitcase space is always crucial - how do you choose between an extra pair of heels or your full-size beauty products?  Don't worry, we've got you covered, you don't have to choose.  Most of our favorite clean beauty brands now come in travel sizes, so you no longer have to pick favorites and choose between fashion and beauty - everyone is welcome!  We will keep our frustrations on making room for our favorite hair dryer, straightener and brushes for another blog post...
