Vacation Style ~ What I'm Packing
First -- check out my guest post on Mind of a Diva -- all about Summer Beauty Tips!
Today's Fashion Beauty Friend Friday post is all about summer and what you'd pack for a vacation. Now, I'm not currently on vacation but I would like to take some trips to New York, Vegas and San Francisco some time soon. But I'm so used to going to the beach in the summer so that's what this post is all about!
♥When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra?
I actually quite enjoy packing, especially for a great vacay. I tend to pack a few days early and put together my favorite pieces to make sure I'll have everything I need. And yes, I tend to pack a bit extra--more tops, more shoes, more accessories.
♥What are your must packs?
I have to pack just about all my jewelry because I never know what I'll actually want to wear when on vacation. Hats, sunnies and lip gloss are other must-haves.
♥What are you happy to leave behind?
Although I love blogging, I'm totally happy to leave the laptop behind. It's great feeling a bit disconnected and without any computer-Internet responsibilities. But I guess I'm never completely away as I do get the Internet on my phone...and I kinda want an iPad. Ugh, technology will be the death of me!
♥Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one
Yes! My mom taught me when I was younger to roll my clothes instead of folding them. That always saves more space while also keeping the creases out of your clothes. I also tend to pack more tops than bottoms so that also saves space.
♥Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand?
Definitely taking magazines--probably W or something like that. Since I have a Nook I'd most likely add a few new books to it so I can have a variety of options.
