Everyone loves a good vacation. We try and hurry to get our bodies right, we put together a few fly outfits to go grace the public in and we make sure our face and hair is up to par. But in light of it all, we always seem to forget something or end up needing something last-minute that'll cost us 5x's as much where we are vacationing. As a frequent vacationer, I've put together the ultimate #vacation #packinglist and essentially some reasons as to why I've chosen them to be on my list. I will be purposely leaving out items like clothing from my list since its an obvious item to pack.
In My Carry On (all items are travel sized): I once made it to my destination with only my carry-on harboring and unnecessary electronics, while my checked-luggage (and toiletries) took an accidental 2-day detour. Needless to say, I now pack my carry on with "in case disaster strikes" on my mind.
Dove Body Wash
1 Sweat Block packet
1 Under Wear Set
Makeup Remover Wipes
Makeup Bag (See Whats Inside My Travel Makeup Bag)
Contact Solution & Case
In My Personal Bag/Purse (all items are travel sized):
Portable Battery Charger
iPad Pro & Apple Pencil
SPF 50 SPORT Lip Balm
In My Checked Luggage:
Dove Bar Soap
ORS Edge Control
Aloe Vera Gel- best skin relief after harsh outdoor conditions and sun exposure
SPF 100 Sunscreen (body)- UV exposure varies by location! Don't end up burned! (yes' I'm black and I still use sunscreen)
SPF 110 Face Sunscreen- Your skin will thank you!
Baby Wipes- just trust me on this one!
Water Shoes- because wearing my Tory's in the sand a salt water is a no-go.
Perfumes & Colognes
Deep Conditioner Packets- that salt water and sun will dry up your hair and scalp!
Krazy glue- Because something WILL break!
Emergency Sewing Kit- Just in case the new outfit you bought and didn't try on, ends up meeting that ass and needs some repair!
Baby powder- Visiting these tropical places will have you experiencing sweat coming from uncomfortable places!
