Well, Ask and ye shall receive...
KELLY GREEN CARRY ON:
This beautiful Kate Spade bag has a name of it's own... "La Casita Josephine" AKA Summer's dream bag. This isn't technically a "carry on" but it is a perfect bag with loads of mini compartments to store all your little travel odds and ends. PS... it's on sale!!
THE PEN NECKLACE:
If you are the kind of gal that is always losing your writing utensil then we have found a solution for you, a completely adorable solution we might add! This cheery blue pen attached to a dainty gold chain can be found in a Kate Spade store near you!
In addition to the fabulous items above, you can also find this striped umbrella that is ideal for keeping your lovely locks dry at a Kate Spade store on online... By the way, we love stripes.
Are you loving those plastic orange or blue frames? Perhaps Love is an understatement... how about we're obsessed! We've got more to show you from this ultra hip AND affordable AND charitable eye wear company WARBY PARKER...
Ever try to wash your face or apply make-up and your hair keeps getting in the way? Maybe you've tried the headband...probably still end up with a wet hairline right? The tassi can end all your troubles. Brooke, her mom and sister has been using the Tassi for years, as she grew up in a house right next to the inventor. Once you try this clever little invention, you'll never wash your face with out it. Oh and the best part is that it doesn't mess up your hair...
Summer swears by the Clarisonic, just take one look at her face and you'll be a believer. It is a little electronic contraption with swirling bristles that scrub all your make-up and grime away leaving your face ultra clean. It is a bit pricey, but you would consider it an investment in your skin. Constant travel will take it's toll on the appearance of skin, so proper care is necessary!
Flat hair, Oily roots, no access to a shower? Try Dry shampoo... works wonders on a second, third... dare we say fourth day hair do's. There are several brands making dry shampoo, Brooke's personal favorite is Pssss which is super cheap and can be found at your local drugstore.
LA MER TREATMENT POWDER:
This is another splurge... it's pretty fancy stuff, but if you are looking for a powder to wipe away signs of facial fatigue induced by a sleepless red eye flight, this is the one. It is soft as velvet and the color never looks fake or too pinky. As well it has a built in SPF 15.
That not so fresh airplane cabin air doesn't do your skin any favors, you might notice that it begins to feel dry and tight after a long flight... Dermalogica makes some fantastic toners that will help to re-hydrate, refresh and calm your skin.
TIDE TO GO MINI PEN:
Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where everything was travel-sized... what an adorable world it would be. The tide to go mini pen is travel size and fits perfectly in your purse, so you'll be ready for those moments when perhaps you've hit some frightening turbulence and your tomato juice spills on to your fancy sweatpants.
Whether you are running through the airport or walking down the boardwalk, a pair of "june bug" Sanuks are both ultra comfy and stylish, as well they don't take up much space in your suitcase. Oh and one other tip, don't forget a pair of warm socks for the airplane, the toes get chilly!

Brooke and Summer interview musician Jason Reeves. Jason sings Wishing Weed and the girls ask him questions about music, girls and smiling.
Brooke White and Summer Bellessa met on MySpace as fans and supporters of each others’ work, soon growing into good friends. "We would send each other new blogs that we fancied, or new music that we couldn't get enough of," says Summer. "We are both traditional on some things and innovative on others," adds Brooke. The girls’ paths have connected with The Girls With Glasses Show project, but it took very different ways to get there.
The magic of Brooke White resonates within her music and the former nanny’s first full-length release since she became an American Idol finalist in 2008. Brooke made an unforgettable first impression on Idol’s seventh season when she told the judges that she’d never watched an R-rated movie, prompting Simon Cowell to offer to bring her “to the dark side.” But as viewer’s found throughout her charmed run to a Top 5 finish, the Phoenix, Ariz. native presented herself like a beacon of light that shone through that “dark side,” a passionate swirl of willowing soul and ‘70s flavored gold.
The oldest of four siblings, Brooke’s parents passed their love of music on to their children, and that love has blossomed in her. “My upbringing is entirely the reason that I am the artist that I am today,” she says. “My parents are hardcore music fans, and we grew up in a small house, close together all the time. Music was the therapy that made us very happy as a family … I’m not an average music listener. I do this because I really do love it.”
At four years old, Summer Bellessa started her modeling career and by 17 had the opportunity to travel the world living in fashion capitals that include: Paris, Hamburg, New York, Miami, London and Tokyo. Summer had clients such as Clairol, Sears, Target, Shiseido, Secret, Glamour, AT&T and Vidal Sassoon. Those experiences as a model opened her eyes to the world outside her hometown of Chicago Heights, Ill. Her metamorphosis from model into entrepreneur began as she effortlessly brought creative and talented people together to do great things.
Today, Summer continues to nurture creative minds from all kinds of different backgrounds capturing the fashion world as Founder and Editor of women’s fashion and lifestyle magazine ELIZA. A national publication that can be found in Barnes & Noble stores across the country, ELIZA was created for women who want to be stylish, sexy and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment and lifestyle. "I chose the name Eliza because of my high regard for Audrey Hepburn, her style and her lifestyle. With the role of Eliza Dolittle in My Fair Lady, she helped everyone realize that with a little cultivation any woman from anywhere can be mistaken for a princess."
