I recently came back from a rejuvenated staycation at the only resort on Oahu’s fabled North Shore, Turtle Bay Resort. They hosted the second annual Wanderlust Festival on Oahu, which is a 4-day festival that is all about yoga, surf and music. Talk about a relaxing, fun vacation…
Not only did I need a vacation, so did my beauty routine. I only brought the essential beach beauty glam for some fun in the sun. Leave the curling iron at home, foundation in your drawer and read my must-haves that will make your beauty routine feel like it’s on vacation too.
