Wednesday, September 05, 2012 | COLUMNS: Away We Go, Tips & How-Tos
by guest blogger Julia Cohen
From sandy shores to gentle gulf breezes, the Southeast is synonymous with summer fun. As an Atlanta-based company, we decided to list our top five favorite beaches in the region. Here’s a little treat for our neighbors looking to take a step out of reality and into paradise—one last time before the summer is over!
Fresh off her trip from southern central France, Pür Vice President of Marketing, Julie Campbell, tells us about her favorite spa retreat.
Where it is:
In the town of Jonzac in the heart of the valley of the Seugne, France.
Last week, one of our favorite newsfeeds ran a story about glamping—a hot, new vacation trend that combines camping with a sense of—you guessed it—glamour. However, if images if pitching a tent in remote wilderness come to mind, think again. This is about as far from “roughing it” as it gets.
A vacation can go sour overnight by facial breakouts or hair that suddenly turns into straw. But it doesn’t have to be that way! A little forethought and some preparation can keep you as beautiful on the go as you are at home—without a complicated beauty routine cutting into your ‘me time’.
As Pür’s VP of Marketing, Julie Campbell spends a good deal of time traveling from our Atlanta home base to places like Toronto, New York and Chicago. This week, she’s jetting off for an inspiration trip to southern France and giving us a sneak peek inside her travel bag.
Pür is taking the world by storm, with pür and simple shout outs pouring in from as far away as the Philippines and, now, India. In a VOGUE India article titled “Five Best Mineral Makeup Products”, beauty editors praised our Start Now! Essentials Collection as “a makeup starter kit that will not intimidate a mineral makeup novice.”
There’s something about summer that just screams travel. Even when I’m en route to one place or another, I’m already planning my next destination. Some are local. Some are exotic. But no matter my mood or motivation, for some reason the travel bug bites harder in the hot summer months.
