Spring Break is coming up and I cannot wait! My husband is a teacher so we try to go away during his spring break every year. This year we’re spending the week with his parents in Fort Myers, FL. I’ve never been, but growing up Greg spent many of his spring breaks with his grandparents down there. He has a ton of fond memories and is really excited to go back and I’m excited to see the spots where so many of his memories took place. I’m also really excited to get out of this cold and spend some time in 80-degree weather!
Whenever I go away, I make a list of everything I need or want to pack. I used to be terrible at this. I’d throw a bunch of clothes into my suitcase and if I wore it, great and if not then whatever. I don’t do that anymore. It only causes stress and you almost always forget or wish you had packed something else.
So what’s on my list? I break it down into three sections: Skin (that includes make-up), hair, and clothes. I realize to some this may sound like a complete waste of time, but it really helps me! As I go through the list, I check off what I’ve packed (super satisfying, btw). In the skin section I put my cleanser, a few exfoliating pads, moisturizer, sunscreen, make-up, eye cream, night cream, and Vitamin C Serum.
The hair list is pretty simple (LOL) I pack three brushes (paddle brush and two round brushes – I do my own blowouts, even on vacation), blow dryer, straightener, Brazilian blowout bonding spray, shower cap, and a few butterfly clips!
My clothing list basically just says: underwear (duh), strapless bra, nude bra, black bra, socks, shorts, 4 bathing suits, etc. I don’t actually list out my outfits (would that make me totally crazy?! LOL).
I’ve been saving a few of the super cute spring/summer items I’ve purchased for this trip (and our trip to San Diego in July) and I can’t wait to wear them! Check out my finds! Tons of great sales happening right now!
With love & gratitude,
