Our Spring Break Travel Essentials

We All Need A Little Break

Our Spring Break Travel Essentials

Happy Friday my darling beauties! So, it’s that time of year again when we just need a break…a spring break that is! Yes, the time has finally arrived where we can break out those bikinis we’ve been dying to wear and jet off to Tequila Sunrises and Bay Breezes. But before boarding that plane to paradise, we’ve got to make sure we’re all packed and prepared, and and for many of us gals, that can kind of be a nightmare! Between deciding what we should bring to what we THINK we’ll might need, many of us end up overpacking and bring items not needed or ever used! So after much deliberation (and a few past experiences) we’ve come up with our spring break survival guide! Weather you are traveling to far off destinations or to an island in the sun, here are our must have spring break travel essentials that we just can’t leave home without! What are some of your travel essentials? Do Tell…

My Beauty Resolutions for 2013. What are yours?
December 31, 2012

I asked Santa for a treadmill and somehow he managed to squeeze one down the chimney with my special delivery.  I have no excuses now.  Like most, I need to shed a few pounds and make an effort to eat healthier.  Blah, blah, blah.  Here are my 5 “beauty” resolutions for 2013:
1.) Workout on my Treadmill 3x/week.
2.) Yoga Classes with Emily Swank.  BeYoga classes are offered in the back of my new favorite store, Lily Juliet, in Madison CT.
3.) Drink more water.  I know, duh!
4.) Grow in my brows.  I’m really doing it once and for all!
5.) Smile More (even at strangers!)
And now yours?

{Holiday Gift Guide} Zen Tea Tree Cleanser and Rosewater Mist
December 21, 2012

The count down begins beauties! For all your last minute shoppers come see us at the boutique. We are here waiting with bells on. Today concludes our Holiday Gift Guide. I am ending it with a bang! Every beauty needs Zen Society. Especially the Zen Tea Tree Cleanser and Rosewater Mist. Another fabulous gift this pair goes for $22 for the cleanser and $18 for the mist.

Tea Tree Facial Cleanser: Gel-based cleanser that gently removes daily build up of debris without stripping away the skin’s natural oils. It cools and brightens tired and dull skin and helps to control excess oil. Tea Tree oil helps to promote a clear and healthy complexion as it is effective in killing the bacteria that causes acne.

Hydrating Rosewater Mist: Beautiful and luxurious rose aroma. The roses used in our USDA Certified Rosewater have been organically grown and distilled from the heart of the prestigious Bulgarian Rose Valley. This mist is infused with Witch Hazel which is an astringent produced from the leaves and bark of the North American Witch-Hazel shrub. Helps combat the drying effects of the heat, sun, wind and travel. Also great as a makeup setting spray that creates a dewy, glowing look.

Come shop with us beauties and escape this cold rainy day at the boutique where the holiday magic is all a glow. Xo Jennie.

All gifts featured in this week’s Holiday Beauty Gift Guide are exclusively available at the Jennie Fresa Makeup Skincare and Boutiquerie.
