traveling with bjork & berries

This morning I'm packing our bags for a much needed summer vacation. Andy and I are leaving our hectic Los Angeles routine behind, and are headed to the East Coast! We'll land in Philadelphia where we'll spend time with the cutest nephew ever, then head up to my hometown to be with my parents. After a night there we'll take a day trip to Manhattan; then we're off to Sea Isle City, New Jersey for a relaxing week at the shore with more family. 

I love vacations like this where I'm surrounded by family and old friends, but I absolutely hate the traveling part of it all. When it comes to packing I try to be as minimalistic as possible so there's less hassle at the airports. I tend to steer away from wearing makeup when traveling, especially with a red-eye flight like we have tonight. Lightweight lotions have become my solution for keeping me feeling refreshed while still feeling put-together. The Bjork & Berries organic body line from Austere helps me feel calm and comfortable and is travel-size, which helps with packing. They also have a soft shimmer lotion for the perfect summer glow. I have the Never Spring scent, which is a fresh and yummy smelling mix of birch, lemon, and cedarwood. I went into the bathroom about an hour after using the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, and the fragrance still filled the air. I can't wait to use them in the outdoor shower after a long sun filled day at the beach.
