Kara McGrath, executive editor of fashion and beauty at Bustle, packed for her friend’s bachelorette weekend getaway in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Kara has a way with convincing us that we NEED all the skincare, the makeup, and the clothes and we aren’t complaining. Along with her cats, she shared her favorite travel essentials with us to get her ready for a fun weekend with the girls.
