My 3 packing essentials

1

Your most loved vacation destination? I always love a good beach vacation! A few weeks ago I went to Exuma, Bahamas for a trip with friends and had the most amazing time. The beaches were unbelievable and the water was crystal clear. The swimming pigs were a highlight and if you have never seen videos of them you must look it up! They were so cute! Favorite hotel? I love the Greenwich Hotel in New York.  It’s so classic and beautiful and the staff is amazing. They have a great Spa too!  I have a few other go-to hotels in NYC including Hotel Hugo (great rooftop), 1 Hotel (free fruit in lobby!) and the Edition (amazing interiors).  The Aman hotels are the most gorgeous for beach/relaxing/vacation. Hotel George V (classic French style) or The Reserve hotel (hidden gem) are a few of my favorites in Paris. I just visited Marina Bay Sands in Singapore and it was unreal! Your beach read? Right now, I am reading Heart Talk by Cleo Wade. It is a great read for everyone in every stage of life. Each page has words of encouragement and wisdom. I am not a big fiction reader.  Another great one is I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb. 3 Packing essentials? When I go on trips, I always bring vitamins with me because being on the road can be very hard on your body and it is important to make sure you are taking care of yourself. There are brands like Olly Vitamins that make delicious gummy vitamins! I also always bring a good book with me (see above for good options!) and I always bring a hand moisturizer (loving the Dove DermaSeries Hand Cream Replenish right now!). Your packing advice? Always opt for a second suitcase rather than cramming everything into one bag and risking damage to your purses and shoes.  Your clothes will also wrinkle less if they are folded nicely with plenty of room.  I always try and pack things that could all be worn interchangeably. When packing for long trips I try and stick to mostly neutral colors so that I can turn multiple outfits from only a few items! 10/RETREATMAG.COM


The one beauty product you can’t live without? Right now I am obsessed with the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. I just spent a week on vacation in the Bahamas and the miracle water kept my skin hydrated after spending all day in the sun.  But I can’t pick just one! I love Charlotte Tilbury and Becca highlighter and my Koh Gen Do and Bare Minerals concealers.  The Bare minerals foundation powder has an SPF which is great for vacations. What beauty trend will you be rocking this season? I am trying the “clean skin” beauty trend which is wearing minimal face makeup.  It feels so fresh and looks so beautiful, and it is always great to give your skin a break and let it breathe! I saw a lot of glitter last month at the fashion shows but I am not sure I am ready take that one on! How would you define you style? My style is a classic/simple take on current trends. I love to follow trends and try new things, but I always try to put my fingerprint on it and make it my own. Right now I love the athleisure look. I think it’s really fun to pair opposing trends like a chic blazer and heels with a track pant and baseball hat. This season’s 3 wardrobe musts? There are so many things I love for the upcoming seasons! I actually just did a post about it on my website, OliviaCulpo.com - go check it out for all of the scoop from the past fashion weeks and more. I include options to pull together looks for less also because I feel fashion should be approachable and accessible to anyone feeling creative. What's swimwear trend is a must this season? I think a high wasted two piece is great! I know it has been around for a while, but I really do think there is something so great and classic about it. Same with a great one piece with a high leg cutout - it makes your legs appear longer! Airport style? Layering is so important when traveling because you can be going between two totally different climates and you can never predict the temperature on the plane so I always layer my travel look.  I usually go for a really comfortable pair of jeans and a white t-shirt as my base and then layer with a sweater, jacket, and a cute hat and bag.  I am releasing a capsule collection this month and there are some really good options that are comfortable and chic for travel like an all red tracksuit (try pairing it with white booties) and a grey sweat suit with cutouts and pearl embellishment.

HOW TO SUN-PROOF YOUR BEATY ROUTINE. If there’s one thing sunny escapades have taught us, it’s that all that frolicking in the heat isn’t nearly as fun for our beauty routine as it is for us. Rocking a perfect beach-babe look may be your goal, but the sun may have other plans.To protect your skin and hair from the elements, locking in moisture and shielding it from the sun are key. Read on to find out what tools are essential for your next holiday!

13/RETREATMAG.COM


FACE

1. Sunscreen is the most important summer essential but opt for something lightweight and radiant so you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.

HOURGLASS, Veil Mineral Primer, $105, mecca.com.au

2. The key to a flawless face is always starting with a clean slate. Apply a primer and let it sit for 5 minutes before applying your foundation. It will act as a canvas for your makeup to adhere to.

3. Skip your creamy foundation and opt for a semi-matte mineral powder on for a look that’s just like your own skin, only better, to give your face radiance that won’t disappear by mid-morning.

JANE IREDALE, Purepressed Base Mineral Foundation, $72, janeiredale.com

EYES

ASPECT, Hydra Shield SPF 15, $77, aspectskin.com.au

1. Instead of struggling with panda eyes all summer long, reach for a water-resistant mascara that is resistant to sweat and humidity – all well-known enemies of a perfectly applied coat, and simply washes off easily with warm water.

2. For colour, opt for a crease- resistant cream shadow stick that can be built up for intensity and layered under eye shadow for a more dramatic look.

3. For pesky under eye circles, try a waterproof concealer that will stay put on even the most steamy summer days.

ESTEE LAUDER, Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof, $50, esteelauder.com.au LANCOME, Effacernes Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer, $60, mecca.com.au

NARS, Velvet Shadow Stick, $41, mecca.com.au


2. Next, line and fill in the entire lip with colour, which will prevent colour feathering and bleeding in the heat.

3. Swap your lipstick for a lip stain that will last a maximum of 10 hours. When choosing a shade, be bold and try a popping pink on your pout for an on-trend, high-impact look.

LIPS

1. Start by using a small amount of lip protection to condition, repair and create a hydrated base for colour.

YVES SAINT LAURENT, Vernis A Levres Vinyl Cream Lip Stain, $55, mecca.com.au NAPOLEON PERDIS, Auto Pilot Lip Service, $32, napoleonperdis.com

2. Shield your hair from the heat with a leave-in spray with UV protection that works like sunscreen for your hair and keeps it from being dehydrated.

3. End the day with some hair TLC with a hydrating mask to restore health and moisture to your hair after a full day of beach-bumming.

KERASTASE, Aqua-Seal, kerastase.com ORIBE, Bright Blonde Radiance & Repair Treatment, $58, oribe.com

SHU UEMURA, Ultimate Remedy, $69, adorebeauty.com.au

HAIR

1. Care for your colour with a reviving hair gloss to refresh cool highlights and prevent fading between salon visits.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

First the bad news: The combination of think skin and repetitive movements (laughing, squinting) leads to fine lines, puffiness, dark circles and sagginess. Here’s the good news: You can fix it! We’ve sat down with Dr. Kate Jameson, Cosmetic Physician and the Medical Director of Youth Lab, Australia’s newest medical aesthetics clinic, on the newest approaches to repair, rejuvenate, and enhance your appearance. HOW DO COSMETIC INJECTABLES WORK? Cosmetic injectables are generally classified into dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, collagen stimulators and fat dissolving injections. Dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume, mimicking fat and bone, and by filling in lines and folds by re-volumising the skin. The most common type of dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar found within our skin. It is a gel which is made in different consistencies meaning we can use it in almost any part of the face - from lip enhancement, cheekbone enhancement, jawline sculpting and tear trough rejuvenation.


Anti-wrinkle injections are another type of cosmetic injectable. They are neurotoxins made from Botulinum toxin and work to prevent muscle contraction by stopping the nerve impulse to the muscle fibres. Botox has been used in medicine and cosmetics for decades. It works by freezing and relaxing facial muscles and stopping the formation of wrinkles, in skilled hands it can work to sculpt and shape the face in a natural way. Botox also has many other uses such as the treatment of migraines, teeth grinding, excess sweating and bladder overactivity to name a few.

ARE COSMETIC INJECTABLES SAFE? Yes, absolutely. As dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are prescription medicines they go through a rigorous testing and approval process to be used by doctors. We have years of medical research to back up their safety. However the treatments are still medical procedures with some risks involved. Bruising, swelling and discomfort can occur after dermal fillers which is generally self-limiting and mild. The rarer risks include infection, immune reactions, granuloma and nodule formation, skin death or necrosis from injecting into a blood vessel and very rarely blindness. A good cosmetic doctor will always discuss possible risks and side effects with their patient and be available at all time to manage them if they were to occur.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT LAST?

Dermal fillers vary from lasting 6 months for softer fillers and up to 18 months for firmer fillers used to contour the cheeks, jawline and temples. Every patient is different though and factors such as metabolism, level of physical activity and smoking status can impact the duration of results.

WHERE CAN I GET COSMETIC INJECTABLES? Cosmetic injectables should only be performed by a Cosmetic Doctor or Cosmetic Registered Nurse. I would certainly advise anybody considering treatment to avoid beauty salons or spas which do not have a full time cosmetic injector on site or do not have medical facilities. Patients should do their research and only visit a reputable cosmetic medical clinic with full time medically trained staff. Remember these are not beauty treatments.

HOW MUCH ARE COSMETIC INJECTABLES? Prices range for all treatments. Generally you should expect to pay per unit of anti-wrinkle injections which varies according to brand (there are three brands available). Botox can cost anywhere from $10 per unit at chain clinics to over $17 at higher end, more reputable medical clinics. When you look at the cost ‘per area’ for anti-wrinkle injections the average is around $200-300 (the frown lines for example).

Dermal fillers also vary but expect to pay between $550-750 Botox injections generally last 3-4 months when used in per 1ml of a high quality dermal filler. Generally when it recommended doses. Those seeking a more natural result comes to cosmetic injectables, you certainly get what you with wrinkle softening from a lower dose will have results for pay for! Double chin fat dissolving injections starts at $2500 for two treatments. 2-3 months. 21/RETREATMAG.COM


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INJECTABLE ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENTS AND DERMAL FILLERS?

Anti-wrinkle injections can be used around the eyebrows, giving a non-surgical brow lift.

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT? Prior to having any cosmetic injectable treatment you will have an extensive consultation with your doctor. This will involve a discussion about your medical history, medications, allergies and previous cosmetic treatments. A full facial assessment and examination will help to determine a treatment plan and your doctor will work with you to make a plan that best addresses your concerns. Once a plan is in place you may be provided with information regarding the treatments as well as costs. Prior to the treatment the risks and benefits will be explained and you will be asked to sign consent forms. The skin is then cleaned and pre-treatment photographs are taken. The actual treatment of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections is very straight forward with most treatments taking between 15 and 30 minutes. In some cases local anesthetic cream or injections may be used to help with pain relief. The injections are not particularly painful and many patients are able to return to work following these procedures.

“DERMAL FILLERS CAN GIVE AN EXTREMELY NATURAL RESULT AND HELP TO FREEZE THE CLOCK.”

After treatments the doctor will go through all of your aftercare instructions such as applying ice to the treatment area, rest and avoidance of certain activities such as heavy exercise and drinking alcohol.

WHO ARE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR BOTH? Most people who are concerned about the ageing process and interested in preserving and enhancing their skin are good candidates for these procedures. Younger women and men in their mid-20s may find they want treatments to delay the onset of wrinkles by using Botox as a ‘preventative treatment’. They may also want to treat the early signs of ageing such as decreased fat in the cheeks and also sculpt and beautify their features with dermal fillers. Older patients may require treatments to soften existing static wrinkles, lift sagging skin and support to their cheeks and jaw lines with combination treatments. Any healthy individual without any absolute contraindications who has realistic expectations is a candidate for these treatments.

Sporty

Achieving the modern sporty look does not mean dressing like you’re heading to the gym. On holiday, it’s about infusing a sporty shot of style into a casual but pulled-together look.

Neutral colors are paired with bold and bright hues, including pops of neon for those who dare. Look for racing stripes, zippers, drawstring waists and pocket detailing—but don’t overdo it.

TRAVEL

CULTURE

trip Seven spots that lure hipsters and tourists with mustsee museums and retro cool hotels.

88/RETREATMAG.COM


St. Petersburg, Russia

MUST-SEE MUSEUM The Hermitage Museum is one of the most influential museums in the world and a landmark that no traveler should miss while visiting Saint Petersburg. The former imperial palace is home to the largest collection of paintings of any museum in the world and houses a stunning collection of international paintings, sculptures and national Russian artwork like imperial porcelains and ornaments. Since The Hermitage occupies a full six buildings on the banks of the Bolshay Neva River, visitors can easily spend the whole day (or longer!) there. Just make sure that you will orient yourself by picking up a map.

MUSEUM YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE NEVER HEARD OF The Upside-Down House is a unique house where everything is turned, you guessed it, upside-down. With all furniture stuck to the ceiling, this museum will make you feel very disoriented as well as give you the opportunity to take some pretty bizarre photos.

WHERE TO STAY Overlooking the State Hermitage Museum and the Palace Square, Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 features beautiful rooms, decorated in classic marine style with white and gold accents and antique furniture. www.booking.com/hotel/ru/kempinski-moika-22.en-gb.html


Florence, Italy

MUST-SEE MUSEUM: The Uffizi Gallery is home to the Medici family’s private collection of paintings and sculptures. Today, it’s one of the most visited art museums in the world and showcases a great array of artworks from major Italian artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Raffaello, and Michelangelo. Travellers should not miss the captivating “Birth of Venus” by Botticelli, while the best time to enjoy the museum’s masterpieces is later in the afternoon as that’s when it’s usually less crowded.

MUSEUM YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF: The Ferragamo Museum is every woman’s dream thanks to its impressive collection of 10,000 shoe models designed by Salvatore Ferragamo from the 1920’s until his death in 1960.

WHERE TO STAY: Boasting an ideal location, just a few steps from the Uffizi Gallery, the Uffizi Home and Florence is a Tuscan-style apartment with wood-beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and wooden furnishings. The Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria are only about 100 metres away from the apartment. www.booking.com/hotel/it/uffizi-home-and-florence.en-gb.html


Amsterdam, The Netherlands

MUST-SEE MUSEUM: The iconic Rijksmuseum is located in the heart of the Museum Square in Amsterdam in one of the most beautiful museum buildings in the world. The museum is more than 200 hundred years old, but has been recently renovated and hosts a great variety of Dutch and international masterpieces like Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’ and Vermeer’s ‘Milkmaid’. Since it is one of the most visited museums in The Netherlands, it would be wise for visitors to buy their ticket in advance to avoid the long lines.

MUSEUM YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF: The KattenKabinet (Cat Cabinet) is a unique museum founded in commemoration of a ginger cat named John Pierpont Morgon. Every five years, Morgan’s owner would give his beloved cat a special gift, such as a commissioned portrait or a custom dollar bill with Morgan’s picture replacing George Washington. In addition to these items, visitors to the Cat Cabinet can see a wide collection of cat-related items that shows the role of cats in art and culture throughout human history.

WHERE TO STAY Luxury Apartment Top Location – At Magnelli is a self-catering apartment with free Wi-Fi that’s in close proximity to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Vondelpark. The apartment boosts two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your meals before exploring the lively city of Amsterdam. www.booking.com/hotel/nl/mr-amp-ms-magnelli-city-centre.en-gb.html 91/RETREATMAG.COM


Vienna, Austria

MUST-SEE MUSEUM: The Art and History Museum of Kunsthistorisches is in a stunning palatial building facing Maria-Theresien Square and travellers should not miss it while visiting Vienna. Apart from housing important Renaissance and Baroque paintings by Titan, Veronese, Rubens and Caravaggio, the museum also gives its guests the unique opportunity to dine among glorious masterpieces every Thursday evening or during a special brunch on Sundays.

MUSEUM YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE NEVER HEARD OF: The Third Man Museum is a museum dedicated to the classic movie of the same name, filmed in Vienna in 1948. Fans of the film will have the opportunity to discover an exclusive collection of original posters and artifacts every Saturday afternoon.

WHERE TO STAY Situated directly opposite the Museum Quarter, the Hotel Sans Souci Wien features spacious rooms with elegant interior design and works by various well-known artists. www.booking.com/hotel/at/sans-souci-wien.en-gb.html

THE BLUE BAR AT THE BERKELEY, LONDON f you’re ever feeling blue, take a cue from reverse psychology and immerse yourself in, well, the blues. Designed by the legendary David Collins with expert lighting design by Edwin Lutyens, the vibrant Blue Bar is the place to go in London for a cocktail. With everything, from the menus to the walls decked in a pale, yet stunning shade of indigo, the mood is anything but sullen. While the bar proffers up many signature cocktails, skip the dessert course during dinner and opt for their fabulous lemon meringue cocktail. This champagne-based cocktail, mixed with lemon curds, citrus and vanilla vodkas, and lemon juice, tastes just like the classic pie. The famous Blue Bar is reopening in July, debuting its new glass windows and expansion.

THE MANDARIN BAR AT THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL, TOKYO or stunning skyline views and a signature drink that celebrates Tokyo’s rich history, the Mandarin Bar inside the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel is the best place for an unforgettable nightcap. Not only is the bar known for having the best martini in town, but award-winning bartender Yukiyo Kurihara has dreamed up a cocktail that is as delicious as it is colorful. The “Nihonbashi” cocktail, which translates to “Japan Bridge,” celebrates Tokyo’s business district that is famous for its bridge. A vodka-based libation with grapefruit juice and yuzu liqueur, the drink is famous for its turquoise and emerald green colors. The turquoise represents the Nihon region, while the green symbolizes the willows that are found along its riverbanks.

Helmed by “the Artisan Bartender” Gregory Hazac, Le Bar serves up sexy cocktails that mirror its dark, intimate décor. You can’t leave the bar without trying Hazac’s most infamous drink, the Dream Lover, his take on a dirty martini that comes garnished with a single red rose petal. Want to make the drink at home? You can if you take Hazac’s cocktail course, exclusive to hotel guests.

VESPER BAR AT THE COSMOPOLITAN, LAS VEGAS n a town famous for its flowing liquor and over-the-top bars, The Cosmopolitan’s Vesper Bar is a standout. Inspired by the cocktail made famous in the 1953 James Bond classic Casino Royale, the Vesper Bar celebrates the evolution of cocktails around the world, but with their own signature twist. With cheeky cocktails names like “Streaker with a Cause” or “I’m Going to the Bathroom to Read” (Elvis’ famous last words), it’s hard to pick which concoction to try first. One of their best? The Sherry, Baby, a take on the Sherry Cobbler featuring apricot liqueur, fig-cinnamon syrup, orange, and, of course, sherry. Sip like a secret agent and enjoy the stunning 1960’s throwback décor while you throw back a cocktail or two. After all, what happens in Vegas… 109/RETREATMAG.COM
