We have a great giveaway for you today with Stowaway! I love the idea behind this new cosmetics company. They’ve created portable, mini makeup that’s perfect for travel and small enough to fit in your pocket for a quick re-application on a summer date. The two friends who started the company, Julie and Chelsa, were both lamenting that they rarely finished their makeup before it went bad, and it took up so much space in their travel bags.
The colors are simple and really well curated so you know you can’t choose wrong. Ashley and I both loved the creme lipstick in peony and the cantelope creme rouge. The lipstick is a the size of a battery (!!) so it can fit easily in your pocket, and goes on super smooth.
Today Stowaway is giving three lucky readers a full kit which includes including beauty balm, creme lipstick, rouge, concealer, eyeliner and mascara. They’re all the perfect travel size for your summer adventures and can easily fit in the palm of your hand or pocket.

CONGRATS TO: Gillian Helm, Lisa, and Lauren Hudson!
Ashley came up with some genius ways to save space for summer travel so you don’t have to lug that huge suitcase around. Here are a few ideas:
1. Fold your tops into little rectangles and stack them like you are filing papers. That way you can see all your options and they won’t wrinkle as easily (I love how she did this in the bag above for the shoot).
2. Bring pieces that have double the wear. Your tunic can double as a cover up and a top, your sandals that are comfortable enough to wear all day but stylish enough for a night out.
3. Bring travel size toiletries and makeup like Stowaway, even a travel size brush helps.
Happy summer travels! Be sure to enter the giveaway (details above)
