Whats In My All Natural Travel Beauty bag? 

Hello Natural Beauties! 

so I am headed on a weekend trip with my husbands family to Lepizig Germany. YAY 

Here is a List Of things I typically bring with me for a small trip like this. Everything From skin care to hair care to makeup all fits in my favorite rosy print cosmetic bag!

 Hair Care Goodies:

For hair care I tend to bring quite a bit. since this is only a short trip I decided to bring a small container of shampoo and conditioner. My Natural Shampoo and conditioner of choice right now are by the affordable line Lavera.

~Lavera Basis Sensitive Shampoo

~Lavera Mango Hair Milk Conditioner

Now For styling I have really been enjoying and indulging in the not so cheap Intelligent Nutrients range. The products that I have are actually the trial sizes so PERFECT for travel. I also like to bring Raw Coconut oil as a highly effective de-frizzer

~Intelligent Nutrients Spray On Detangler

~Intelligent Nutrients Volumizing spray

~1 teaspoon coconut oil in a small travel container

Skin Care For The Body:

Being 23 weeks Pregnant I need to continue my stretch mark prevention routine while away.  I will be using Everybody Loves The Sunshine From Living Libations as a body oil and for fun in the sun!  One of my charms while away on holiday is the burts bees hand salve. I like to use this for rashes from walking and sweating long periods of time.

~ Lotion for dry hands

Now For My Travel Skin Care Routine!

I believe less is more when it comes to beautiful skin. No need to pack a 6 step cleansing method while you are traveling. how unpractical and annoying is that?

How about a simple 2 step? or make it one step if you like!


I am Bringing My Soft Bristle Face Cleaning Brush. All I do is rub this on my DRY face in Circular motions. This Exfoliates and removes all that dead skin and dirt and brings blood circulation to the face. It will leave your skin feeling silky soft.

Step 2.

I am a HUGE fan of Rose Water. It is commonly used as just a toner but it is a wonderfully versatile gift from nature. The one I am using is by a line called Safeas and it has a fantastic sprayer that feels like mist to the face! Rose water not only tones but it cleanses and  moisturizes all at the same time which makes it perfect for travel because of its all in one abilities!

Hope you enjoyed my natural beauty travel tips. See you all when I return on Tuesday!

First Impressions Of each Product & Product Details

Beauty Comes From Within

When Your Body Is filled With Beautiful Greens And Nutrients

Health, Beauty, And Happiness Will Truly Shine Through!

Beauty tip of the week: Juicing is a great way to make sure you are getting enough nutrients in your diet. I decided to invest in a juicer about 6 months ago! 

  Below is a video of me sharing my experience with juicing from my natural beauty channel on Youtube. 

 My Favorite Green Juice Recipe  

4 Local Organic Apples

2 Bright and sunny Oranges

1 Carrot

1 Medium/Large Head of romaine lettuce

2 handfuls of spinach

A squeeze of lemon juice

This Recipe makes about 650 ML of juice. The Juice Can be stored in the fridge up to 5 days (I highly suggest adding lemon if you plan on storing it) 

My Juicer: Philips HR1854 Juicer I paid close to 80 Euros but better deals can be found on Amazon. 


 Decided to pull out my favorite floral pink skirt. I actually could not wear this last summer because I lost a lot of weight but now that I am halfway through my pregnancy its starting to fit again. 😉

For the Top I just went with a simple white shirt, it is the beautiful cut of the shirt that keeps the outfit stylish and sweet. The top shows off the shoulders but does not show off to much cleavage.

For Jewelry I decided to keep it very simple and clean. just a pair of my favorite silver dangle earrings. And My Beautiful  Swarovski crystal green leaf necklace. 🙂
