I hope you’re getting ready for some fun and relaxation or maybe planning some travel for the holiday weekend. I’m off for an extended long weekend in beautiful Hawaii, which I’m really looking forward to. It’ll be great to have a few days to relax by the ocean and re-energize myself. I’m also planning for some fun activities like scuba diving, zip-lining, and a catamaran tour. Let the packing begin!
No matter where I’m traveling I have a few go-to items that are part of my travel regime.
A stylish large tote is ideal for all those carry-on extras, like my iPad, some healthy snacks, and a neck pillow (a mush-have for a long flight). It also doubles as a large handbag once I get to the destination.
Since I’m headed somewhere sunny, a wide brim hat is a must. I love this one because it’s technically a visor, so it adjusts to any size. And the open top keeps your head from getting too hot. Just $16, and it folds easily for packing.
I wear sunscreen every day, regardless, but it’s especially important when you’re going to be outside. I discovered this primer/sunscreen combo from Cover | FX in one of my subscription boxes and have become addicted to it. The gel formula is great for hot, humid days like we have here in Texas. In addition to protecting from the sun it also helps to minimize fine lines, so yea!
Flip flops in an array of colors like these from Tory Burch go from beach to shopping to dinner out. I live in flip flops almost year round, so it’s nice to have a few pairs that are stylish and comfortable.
When traveling I like to pack items that do double-duty like the One Stick from Be A Bombshell. It’s both a lip stain and a cheek color, and unlike powder blushes I don’t have to worry about it breaking if I overpack my bag. Known to happen. 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
