Hi everyone! Spring break is right around the corner, and although I’m not going anywhere warm and tropical this year, I know some of you are! These are a few things that i never leave behind when I go on vacation:
1.) Sunscreen + Self Tanner– SPF is so important so you don’t come back all red and blotchy. If you still want to have some color use some self tanner or a bronzing lotion. Some of my favorite tanners are Eco Tan (organic) and L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronzing Lotion. Victoria’s Secret makes amazing bronzing lotion!
2.) A Polaroid Camera– This Fujifilm Instax camera is perfect for taking those Tumblr looking vintage beach pictures you’ve been dreaming about. Don’t worry you can still Instagram them! Take a picture of the pictures with your phone.
3.) Extra Nail Polish– With all that abrasive sand, you may need a touch-up.
4.) A Book You’ve Been Meaning to Read– Did anyone see the trailer for The Longest Ride? It looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I love anything by Nicholas Sparks. Reading is so much better on the beach. Plus, you’ll have it for the car or plane ride too.
5.) A Lip Balm With SPF– You really don’t want to burn your lips!
6.) A Water Bottle– carrying around a water bottle will save tons of $$$ and will keep you cool and hydrated.
