While it may require a little more work than the typical jetsetter, there are travel hacks that are sure to keep you on track without feeling the pangs. After all, sensitive beauties deserve to see the world, too!

It may be a bit on the glam side for some, but I’ve always had a penchant for being a little extra. I think of my signature look as pin-up meets old Hollywood movie star, so if you’re into that kind of thing, here’s exactly what I am using to get it!
