The Beauty Junkie’s Guide to Packing for Vacation

My kids don’t even know how lucky they are to have grandparents who live in France. We make a pilgrimage to see them every summer, reuniting in Bandol, France for some Mediterranean sea, sun, and fun. It’s the most cherished family vacation of the year.
