What camera do I need? (Mostly self-portraits, travel)

I would love advice on what camera (or additional lens) I should get. I will be using it for mostly self-portraits (I'm a makeup artist and have a blog, so I want to be able to take close up self-portraits of makeup techniques), photos of makeup products, and travel photography. I currently own a Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens, Pentax K1000 with Pentax-M 1:1.4 50mm lens, and a Sony Cyber-shot DSC W120 7.2 megapixel point and shoot. I love shooting travel photos with my Pentax, but it's so heavy and film is kind of a pain. I would love to find something that is digital, a little lighter than my Canon and Pentax, but not as small as my Cyber-shot, and that I can also use for sharp self-portraits and product photos. Does this kind of camera even exist?! Or would it be best to get a nicer point and shoot for travel photos, and a better lens for portrait/product photos? I so appreciate any suggestions you may have!
