Some of you may be lucky enough to have a little winter escape this Holiday season to somewhere hot! I’ll be daydreaming over here in the meantime, but if I were to hop on a plane right now, these are some of the things I’d bring. Bon Voyage!

These are my essentials in a nutshell! A beautiful print bikini, tanks to throw over for lunch, a scarf to wear both in flight and later on as a beach coverup, and of course a good book. I am pretty good when it comes to not overpacking, since I practically spend the whole day at the beach – I’m a Canadian girl, so no pool or excursions off the resort for me, it’s all beach time when I am away. I rarely wear makeup when I am on vacation, I just like soaking up the sun (safely), so at the most I will apply bronzer and a bright lipstick for dinner. I also love a statement necklace to wear with a basic dress for the evening (I live in dresses when & where it’s warm). Since I wear my hair in natural beach waves, I let it air dry, but I do still have to combat frizz in the humidity, and the perfect solution for that is Kerastase’s Elixir.
