For those who don't already know I am leaving for an month long adventure to the US first thing tomorrow with Michael. During this time I will be non-contactable for any commissioned work or collaborations but if you would like to keep sending through your emails I shall tackle them when I return. I really cannot wait to get away, explore and live a little outside. Because of this I won't be uploading any of my adventures until I get back. I really want to enjoy my time without the constraints of internet access. But not to worry - I have a few posts up my sleeve that will go up while I am away and Michael will no doubtably have his camera attached at his hip and there will be plenty to share once we return. If you would like to follow our adventure make sure to follow us on instagram at @jasminedowling & @hughesy3110

Anyway I thought before I left I would quickly share a little packing post. Being my first time overseas this is probably a noob essential list but I shall give it a go. 


The Grown Alchemist Travel Kit takes the worry out of the 100ml limit with all the essentials included  ($70) shop here

Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream - perfect for dry winter hands ($28) shop here
