Thirsty Thursday: Skincare Edition

When I started Flight Attendant training I knew that once I started flying all the time I was going to need an impressive moisturizing situation to handle the wear and tear on my skin. Enter the Korean beauty line, Dr. Jart+. I've been using Dr. Jart+ skincare products for about a year now, and let me tell you, I'm obsessed. Here are a few of my favorites and two products I'm dying to try.

Sheet masks are the coolest. They help your skin and you get to look like a super creepy horror movie character. It's a win-win. This one is delightfully cool and I've found it's fabulously plumping.

This little bottle is an absolute everyday essential. I use it every morning, whether or not I'm wearing makeup that day. 

I have been super super impressed by this product. I got it as a sample and LOVED how full the coverage was without looking cakey or makeupy. It's the first BB cream that I've truly been able to sub in for my full coverage foundation and it's very moisturizing. It works perfectly over the Ceramidin Liquid. 

If ever a perfect facial moisturizer existed, it's this one. That's really all I have to say about that. 

I haven't tried these bad boys yet, but I'm just dying to. Colored clay that turns into foam? A combo kit? Sign. Me. Up. 

I'm not really a contouring pro, but I feel like this kit could make me one. I'd love to give it a try because this seems like it could totally work. 

Things I'm Coveting Today: 2.11.16

This ring is just so dainty and understated but it still manages to fit your whole monogram on there.

Nothing says "I have my life together" like whipping out your own gold pen when it's time to sign the receipt at the end of the night. 

Little known fact: lemons are my favorite fruit. 

Your friends will be thrilled to put a coaster under their champaign flute when that coaster is this sparkly!

Vermont: the gold standard in my heart, the gold standard in this print.

Want to give jewelry that tells her "I'm all in" but you're not ready to put a ring on it? Take a (financially responsible) baby step with these earrings to tell her you want to be bound to her for life. 

I'm a Chi Omega. I love pearls. Anything else?

Oh, and I used to be a pageant girl so when Kate does AB rhinestones, I'm on it.

Ok, hear me out on this one. This cologne looks like something that would be on the dresser of a Wild West saloon owner/pool shark, but it smells like joy in a bottle. I hate many traditional women's perfumes because they smell too floral for my personality. This is a men's cologne but it is FABULOUSLY appropriate for a woman. 

Flight Attendant Work Packing List

Today I'm heading to the airport to sit "On Premises Reserve". Some airlines call it "sitting hot" or the "hot seat" but we just call in OPR at my base. Regardless of what it's called, the concept is the same. You go to the airport, bags packed and uniform on, to wait for Crew Scheduling to call you and tell you to RUN to Gate A45 to go work a flight to anywhere in the world. 
Normally we have to have a minimum of two hours notice before we work a flight, but when you're sitting OPR it can be as little as ten minutes. 

Sometimes when they call I feel a lot like Amy Pond.

The thing that annoys me the most about OPR is that you just have absolutely NO idea where you're going. None. 
So what do you pack for a 3-4 day trip with no set destination? 

My Work Packing List
Uniform dress
Uniform sweater
Uniform skirt
Two uniform tops
Uniform scarf
Six pairs of hose (they shred like Tony Hawk)
Sports bra
Toiletries kit
(I never bring "real" jewelry with me when I fly)

Additional Weather Dependent Items

These essentials should get the job done, no matter where they send me, and no matter what kind of social event I end up participating in (unless it's black tie, but a surprise gala hasn't happened to me yet).
