Good things come in small packages:

May 26, 2010


With Memorial Day right around the corner I’m sure you’re making weekend getaway plans – hopefully in a few days we can all take a break from our busy lives and relax on the beach with a cocktail! As far as traveling goes, it can be a pain to pack all of the little odds and ends we need to be glamorous, and these (what we find essential) beauty additions can sure take up some space in our luggage. So, instead of traveling with full sized shampoos, lotions, and body wash, is a perfect one stop shop to satisfy all of your travel sacrifices. offers small, packable versions of the most fab beauty products to make you look beautiful and give you enough space for an extra pair of pumps! This site was designed by Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz who put together some of their favorite products and different travel strategies. They both combine their travel mistakes and fortunes to design this incredible site. Mintz follows the “less is more” idea while Duff arrives on any trip with an oversized suitcase overflowing with her full sized necessities. For the site they bring together their opposites and created this beauty forum for ladies, and we are loving it!

“People are committed to their brands; that’s why this works,” Duff says of their carefully selected range, which includes adorable minis from indie darlings like Weleda, Philip B, Malin + Goetz, Molton Brown, and Ole Henriksen. The purpose of the site, adds Mintz, “is to target brands that we use, trust, and have tested.” The site is not only a huge hit with frequent fliers—the themed In Hotel Spa, Gym, and Urban Traveler kits are top-sellers—but it has also revolutionized the way Duff herself travels. “This past winter was the first time I didn’t check my luggage. Everything fit into two little Ziploc bags!”
