That's all for the venting. Sorry about that peeps. Basically I just needed to unload a little bit so I can get to the fun stuff. My packing essentials for my trip to Puerto Rico today!
I should preface all of this by saying that I'm not an annoying, high-maintenance person while I'm on vacation, and probably will not use half of this stuff. I just like being prepared for anything that might come up.
Some things that are an absolute necessity:
-A travel-sized Moroccanoil Light, because really? It's the best stuff on the planet. It's probably the only product I'll use for my hair because I let it be its natural, wavy self while I'm away.
-Jack Black Oil-Free Sun Guard for the bf, because if I forget to pack it then he'll have to dip into my product stash and we can't have that, can we?
-Living Proof Restore shampoo & conditioner minis. I use the full-size every day so I'm glad I have these minis for vacation.
Maybe not necessities?:
-Fresh Sugar Lemon bath cubes... but you never know if the resort will have an awesome soaker tub.
-Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads for face and body...with the amount of sunscreen I'm bringing we may need these.
-I realize this brush is not travel-size but it's the Best. Brush. Ever.
-I'm bringing manicure stuff because I've already done my nails but they tend to get chipped because of the amount of pool-time I log in while on vacation. Also, this time we're going to the rainforest! Show I'm sure they'll look a hot mess by the time the trip's over, and I probably won't care that much.
Ah, the makeup bag. It looks like a lot but there's actually zero foundation or tinted moisturizer going with me. It's all stuff to highlight my glowy vacation skin, like Stila One-Step Bronzer, By Terry Blush Veloutee in Ginger Glaze (amazing for people with freckles, btw), NARS Bronzing stick in Malaysia (a great non-orange bronzer), and Jouer Highlighter in Champagne. I won't be wearing much eye makeup, but I figure I'd bring some of my Too Faced essentials for fancy dinner nights. I'm bringing an eyeshadow brush set that's in a cute canister to keep them from getting damaged in my makeup bag, Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer, and the Matte Eye Shadow Collection.
Safe travels to anyone on a plane, train, or automobile this holiday weekend. Eat lots of turkey for me and I will drink plenty of frozen drinks for you!
