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.

I can just feel the humidity and smell the sunscreen already! 🙂
I love a winter beach getaway — so fun! We went to Cabo for New Years a few years ago and it was great to have the beach break to kick off the new year.
That sounds like my kind of new years! Where did you stay in Cabo? I'm looking for the Spring! 🙂
I remember the days when my DREAM was to own something by Bobbi Brown. I'll never forget purchasing my first BB lip color! I bought it on my 16th birthday, at the Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue, in Chicago. I don't wear her makeup anymore, but I still remember everything about that makeup moment!
Normally, I'd be aching to get out of Colorado this time of year, but it was 60 degrees F today … absolutely nothing to complain about. 🙂
Aw Katie, that is the cutest, I love when you stop by to share something 🙂
I'm exactly like you when I'm on vacation. When my boyfriend and I went to Jamaica in September, we only went to the pool once and only for an hour. The beach is the place for me and I loved my beach hair! I wish I had more dresses because I changed my outfit three times a day when we were there since it was sooo hot! This post sure makes me miss Jamaica! I can't wait to go back!
I literally am in my bathing suit all day! So only thing I need to do is bring lots of those, which are easy & light to pack 😉 I would love to go to Jamaica! The Rockhouse Hotel in Negril is AMAZING!
I'm heading out to Punta Cana on Sunday and can't wait to be on the beach basking in the sun. Asides from dresses, I like wearing shorts and a cute tank top. You just reminded me to pick up more sunscreen and some type of protector for my hair. This is a great post!
oh my gosh, can I have everything? You have such great taste!
