Girlfriends Getaway to Hockley Valley Resort for Skiing, Spa and Fine Dining

When it’s the middle of winter and you can’t escape the snow, where do you go? What do you do? Perhaps you have already considered a ski weekend up north but don’t quite know where to start in making your plans.

The Ultimate Travel Beauty Packing List

With all the traveling I do in my career, one of the hardest parts is deciding on what to pack.
