Sol Republic's PUNK Wireless Speaker is Haute!

I am loving my PUNK wireless speaker by Sol Republic. It is absolutely fun and functional... it also pairs nicely with my ipad mini when I'm watching videos or listening to music.

My PUNK speaker allows me to rock out to my favorite songs with crystal clear sound hands free. It's so simple to activate with my iPad mini, simply turn it on and go to settings, press the Bluetooth button on my device and I'm all set.

The battery life lasts up to eight hours with a range of 60 feet. You can even use it in your car but I love it on the beach! It's now a staple in my Haute Travels bag. Time to pack for a yacht trip!

Bvlgari Brings the Perfect Indulgence for my Haute Travels Bag

As the New Year gets underway, there's no time like the present to add new fragrances to your travel bag. I am currently loving Bvlgari's Rose Essentielle Eau de Parfum purse spray. The iconic fragrance is an absolute jewel, feminine and exquisitely Bvlgari. The rose and blackberry heart notes are truly enjoyable.

I also love the limited-edition Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise body mist. The perfumed mist and lotion is a perfect pair for the Haute Travels girl who enjoys the finer things in life. The fragrance highlights the ultimate in seduction, femininity and indulgence with floral and woody fresh notes. I love the top notes of pink pomelo and green almond, with heart notes of Jasmine white tea and base notes of white musks and delightful woods.

MIYU Brews Up Haute Beauty Solutions

There's a new beauty duo that's brewing up hydration from the inside out. I recently discovered the amazing MIYU Beauty teas and Hydrate mi Beauty Essence for a perfect pairing. 

I love the idea of putting together my two favorite loves... a great cup of organic tea and facial mist that also contains the rich nutrients of a serum to counteract dehydration and stress on the skin. It really does boost my skin's natural ability to retain water. This is perfect for the Haute Travels girl who wants a pretty complexion while traveling especially when flying.

The teas and Hydrate mi Beauty Essence fuse ancient Chinese beauty secrets and the latest scientific advances in skincare using superfruits and vitamins to help the aging process. The amazing green rooibus tea has powerful natural ingredients like Goji berries when fighting free radicals, in all it contains nine types of flavonoids. The beauty tea was created for those who don't drink enough water or perhaps they drink too many caffeinated beverages... as well as the travel girl jet-setting around the globe.

Before you land in paradise sip some tea, moisturize and spritz your face with the Hydrate mi Beauty Essence. Dewy-kissed skin will surely make your day beautiful. 

Haute Tip:  If stress has got you singing the blues, MIYU also has the De-stress mi Beauty Essence and tea. It's designed for those who multi-task from "dusk to dawn." The body releases stress hormones which can cause skin irritation and even kill skin cells. De-stress mi Beauty Essence and tea contains natural ingredients that may have you looking haute and feeling stress-free in no time.

Haute Beauty Products From Paris!

When a Haute Travels girl travels the globe, she just may discover some amazing beauty products from the most fashionable places. Here are a few of my beauty must-haves for my Haute Travels bag from Paris.

I love the Dior Air Flash Spray Foundation in 500. It gives me great coverage and matches my skin flawlessly. And to keep it in place, I use the Dior Air Flash CC Primer and touch it up on long flights with Air Flash Matte Touch.

I recently discovered the beauty of By Terry Baume De Rose Nutri-Couleur. These lips balms are super hydrating and rich in color. The formula is mixed with Shea Butter and Vitamin E to help fight free radicals leaving my lips soft and sweet.

I also love the By Terry Rose De Rose blush… the pigment is amazing with light, medium and dark shades and it smells like roses on my cheeks. The packaging is also super chic in a silver compact with matching velvet cover.

The Annick Goutal Experience

French perfume house Annick Goutal blossoms when it comes to fragrances that elicit emotion. I am currently loving Vent De Folie with notes of blood orange and geranium rosa mixed with blackcurrant and raspberry. The fragrance speaks to the optimistic and spontaneous young woman who embraces life with all of its insanity.

Annick Goutal was passionate about displaying her love for fragrance and the magic of timeless experiences they inspire. A visit to one of her boutiques represent an experience for the soul inviting you to use your sense of smell and touch to engage.

In the exclusive world of high-end, French-style luxury, Annick Goutal never disappoints. Each product collection is unique with its own identity... and every bottle of perfume comes with a beautiful signed note from Annick Goutal.

Haute Travels Tips to Stay Connected!

When traveling from the USA to Europe staying in touch with friends and family can be very expensive. But there are a number of ways to make phone calls without spending the bank using new technology that makes life easier.

Here are five ways to keep roaming charges under control, while you stay connected with smartphones and tablets:

I love using Facetime on my iPad mini, but it requires Wi-Fi and once connected I can chat with friends from the beach in the Bahamas or a café in Paris!

Get an unlocked phone to use with different carriers like a verykool SL5000 Quantum with 4 G LTE support and add a local SIM card that you may purchase from a carrier in London for example. This will allow you to receive calls while you’re in the UK.

You may want to get an unlocked phone with dual SIM card capability like the verykool s505 so that you don’t miss calls from home. This allows you to use your cell phone to receive calls from the USA and add a second SIM card to make local calls.

If you’re looking to save space in your travel bag, pick up a Phablet like the verykool s5510 Juno. It’s like having a mobile phone and tablet all in one. You can take high quality photos and even look at documents while on the go with the 5.5 inch screen. Since the s5510 is unlocked, you can also put in a local SIM card and make personal and business calls while traveling in another country.

You can also purchase an inexpensive mobile phone with prepaid minutes from a local carrier when in Europe for example. But be sure to use all of your minutes because they will expire within a year of purchase and use of the phone.

Disclosure:  I have both the verykool SL5000 and the s5510 Juno for travel compliments of the company for review.
