It’s official: we’re in vacation mode. And even though our current view is of our (nicely decorated) cubicle, that doesn’t mean we can’t fantasize about hopping on the next flight out of town. We filled this month’s Birchboxes with samples from some of our favorite global brands, plus carry-on musts (think multitaskers and spill-proof wonders). You’ll also find articles and videos that will help you become a glossy jet setter. Get on the road tips from Fathom founder Pavia Rosati and see what three very different Birchbox staffers pack in their carry ons. Learn how to master self-tanning once and for all so you can at least look like you’ve had a vacation, and find out how to optimize your airport shopping. Bon voyage!
