It’s vacation time! Can I get a ‘hallelujah’??!
Seriously though, who doesn’t love time away from the hustle and bustle of life, time to just relax and have fun? If you’re anything like me, however, you almost always overpack for any type of trip, even if it’s just for a couple of days. I’m ashamed.
Although this bad habit of mine doesn’t do my suitcase any favors, it certainly serves my blog well! So, you beautiful people, you, let’s talk about holiday must-haves!
Here’s a picture of me trying to juggle some of the products I’m about to talk about. Oh yeah, check out these skills!
Basically the first vacation essential would be to ensure a good base for your skin. Make sure to moisturize if you’ll be spending lots of time in the sun, as I plan to!
I personally love using Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, as it’s not too heavy on the skin, yet still provides enough moisture. To go along with that, I’ve been trying out Clinique’s CC Cream as well. The coverage is very light, but it’s great for days when you don’t want to pack on the foundation. As I don’t want my makeup to slide off my face, I like wearing this on hotter days. Let me know if you’d like a more in-depth review of the CC Cream! It’s a great summer product in my opinion.
PS, if you haven’t boarded the EOS lip balm bandwagon, I suggest you go to your nearest drugstore and pick one up! To be honest, they aren’t the most moisturizing on the lips, but they smell heavenly, and I mean, c’mon, have you seen the packaging??
I also love a good lip and cheek combo, and Revlon has me sorted! I’ve been loving bright pinks lately, and if you’re on the hunt for some budget brights, I suggest Revlon’s creme blush in Flushed and the Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop!
As for summer scents, I’ve been loving all things fresh and girly! On vacation, I especially want something light and lovely that I can easily apply on the go! My recent favorite is probably Bath and Body Work’s scent called Beautiful Day. I have the Triple Moisture Body Creme and the Fragrance Mist, both of which smell gorgeous! Definitely a must-have for me!
I also get super lazy with my hair on trips, so I made sure to pack a dry shampoo! The one I’m currently using is by the brand Psssst! I like the smell of this one, but I’m not sure if it’s the best out there! I’ll have to keep up my research in that regard!
Going along with the pink theme, I’ve just purchased a new nail polish called Crazy For Chic by Loreal. It’s almost a watermelon color, and I find that the Loreal nail polishes last forever on my nails, and they’re not too pricy, which is always a plus! I’ll definitely be sporting this color on my trip!
As for entertainment, I can’t leave the house without my phone or a good book! I just joined the rest of America in buying an iPhone, and look at how adorable this Otterbox is, am I right? Also, if you’re in the mood for a relaxing read, you might try picking up something by Kate Morton. She’s a great author, who pens modern mysteries!
If it’s going to be super sunny at your holiday destination, I suggest bringing a cute hat and pair of sunglasses along to shield your eyes from the bright light! The ones I’m wearing are from Target.
Hope you guys enjoyed my holiday must-haves!
