Hiiii!!! Oh my, it’s been far too long, I know! Well, lots of live has been going on… BUT, one very exciting thing has happen since the last time I was here. I got my very first stamp in my passport! Yes, I know — At 28 years old that seems shocking to some, but I actually received my passport this year because I knew I was going to be going to Mexico with one of my best friends! Now, I’m so anxious to get more and more stamps! Well, enough about that and let’s get on with what I really came to tell you all about. I’ve been making several trips, and have a few more planned so I thought I would tell you a few of my favorite things from my trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
PROTECT YOUR SKIN
It’s so important to protect your skin ALWAYS. But, it’s especially important to protect it when you’re going to be in the sun for long periods of time. I’m obsessed with this Hawaiian Tropic Face sunscreen. I am more on the oil side and it didn’t make me feel greasy at all. Once I was out of the sun, we actually went through almost an entire bottle of this Hawaiian Tropic After Sun moisturizer. It’s such a good aloe/lotion combo and was perfect to push the moisture after spending hours in the sun.
A lot of the time you will remember to protect your skin, but you will forget that your lips are skin too and they need to be protected and moisturized too. We used several different chapstick/balm combos but this Lip Repair Balm from SkinFix is one of my favorites.
Now, as I’ve said over and over… I’m obsessed with the Becca Cosmetics highlight that Jaclyn Hill created in Champaign Pop. However, it’s not the most travel friendly. (At least not for me because I’m a cults!) So, I took this beauty! Which is actually an eye shadow by Ofra, in the shade Bliss. It was perfect, I kept make up minimal but ALWAYS used a highlight… Of course!
I love having signature scent for big trips, one that I either already have in my collection but haven’t worn much or one that I will grab right before leaving. This way when I smell it from that time on, I will always think of that great vacation. I’ve had Juicy Couture’s Viva La Juicy in my collection for a while but I’ve only worn it here and there so the scent has not been attached to anything for me. I thought it was perfect for this, I had just the small bottle and it’s such a light scent. Now, I will forever think of the amazing vacation with my dear friend!
This dress from Old Navy was perfect! So comfortable, light weight and super affordable!
I downloaded Modern Romance, By Aziz Ansari on a whim the night before I left on my trip and listened to it while I laid out, and finished it part way home. It was hilarious, insightful, and just SO good… I highly recommend.
It has been FAR too long since I blogged and I’ve missed it so much! I’m going on a trip for my birthday in May, and this will be a much shorter trip. Would you all be interested in a “What I pack in my carry on…” post? Let me know! Also, what trips do you have planned for the summer? I’ve got the travel bug!!
Until next time.
