My brand is one of my greatest loves. Beginning in Bondi, it has grown and expanded all the way to New York! We recently travelled to the Big Apple with my family and team of amazing people who put so much love and passion into Ere Perez. We met incredible people, trained our new distributors and exhibited our hearts out to thousands of people. For a small brand that began in Australia, we have loved the journey of sharing our products with people all over the world. Expanding to the US was a highlight of 2018. Seeing people discover our products, learn about the brand and explore our makeup & skincare made me so happy!
Have you ever thought about being more sustainable on your trip? Sounds tricky, but the truth is that it is only about making simple choices before & during your journey. You may ask yourselves how much of an impact do I have and what difference will it make? The answer is a big one and it is simple and easy decisions that make this possible. Here are some tips to make this easier for you and give you less to think about during your stay:
There is nothing worse that lugging a big suitcase around on holiday. We’ve all done it – stuffed that huge black bag to bursting and regretted it. Those who travel well, travel light. They are minimalist in their approach to packing and excessive in the rewards they reap. No dragging the heavy case up flights of steps, missing the train, battling on escalators and getting in and out of cabs. Hotel on the top of a hill? Not a problem at all! Mostly, we over-pack because we’re trying to control the uncontrollable. We want to account for every eventuation. An outfit for every occasion, every season, every moment – we don’t want to be caught short or not looking our best.
We all know that special feeling, butterflies in the tummy, throat a little tight, a mix of anticipation and expectation as the plane takes off. It’s the feeling of leaving the daily grind behind, of soaring to new heights and reaching new shores. Travel may seem like a luxury, an added bonus if we get everything else right, but expanding your horizons is much more than that. A holiday, be it for two days or two months does more than relax us. It makes us better people.
