I'm a fan of visiting Brazil once every 6 weeks... Bikini waxes are a quint essential travel task for me. I find that shaving grows back too quickly and it can make walking/flying/exploring uncomfortable.Where: Stripped Wax Bar. For only $38 you can get a brazilian. Manscaping is also available for those men out there...
TIP: Go 2-3 days before traveling to ensure any discomfort/bumps have died down!
I'm someone who does mani/pedi's at home to relax, but when it comes to traveling I'd like my hands and feet to be fresh-to-death. Who knows if the pool boy wants to give me a foot massage?
Where: I can recommend Fingers and Toes, Posy, and Element Nail Spa.
TIP: Get shellac! Shellac ensures your nail polish won't chip while abroad.
Where: My parents place...
TIP: Some items need to be 'hang-dried' so be sure to wash those 2-3 days before traveling/packing.
Where: Your apartment floor...
TIP: As you think of items to pack, put them in your suitcase. This will make packing a breeze!
5. Mini Everything
Clearly my face wash, shampoo and shaving cream are NOT going to fit in my suitcase, so I buy mini-things to pack. Mini refillable bottles, mini toothbrush, mini hairspray etc.
Where: Dollarama and Walmart
TIP: Don't leave your mini-things behind. They can be reused for your next trip!
Remember that pair of pants that won't stay up? Or that shirt that needs a strapless bra? Before I travel, I find the gaps in my closet. From belts to bras, I begin shopping around to supplement. I don't want to go on a shopping spree (that's why I'm traveling), just the basics.
Where: Depends on what you need!
TIP: Don't go overboard. Just because your low-cut shirt would look good with a necklace, doesn't mean you have to buy it before you go! It's a nice-to-have, not a need-to-have.
Day-to-day I enjoy plucking the strays, but when it comes to a trip, I like to reevaluate the shape and colour of my eyebrows.Where: Blink Brow Bar Vancouver
TIP: Go at least a week before traveling. That way if your skin gets irritated, it has time to recover.
