It’s that time of year again when we all start to get the travel itch. What is it about spring that makes us want to wander? Is it because it’s finally warm enough outside that we can leave our houses without freezing our butts off? Maybe.
If you’re not already planning your summer vacations, girls’ weekends, summer bachelorette parties, and other warm-weather sojourns, you’re running late. You may have lost out on super-sale fares, and we can’t help you with that. What we can help you with is packing, because the most important question after “Where am I going to go?” is “How is my makeup going to get there?”
