Welcome to your week long vacation here at twenty-something! In honor of the cruise John and I will be embarking on this Friday, I’ve decided to take you all along for a little vacation of your own this week. I’ve enlisted the help of some of my favorite bloggers to help you get the most out of your travel wardrobe, choose the perfect beauty products to bring along, and of course you’ll get a great tropical recipe to try for those days where you just need to get away.
So – the sea is calling? Living in Florida the sea seems to ALWAYS be calling my name, and I couldn’t think of a better way to answer that call than with a weekend cruise to the Bahamas. I’ve always had a huge problem with overpacking when I travel, mostly because I want to bring along my whole wardrobe so I have options. I’m doing my best to pack light for this short and sweet getaway so here’s what I’m packing:
A cocktail dress is a must-bring for any vacation. You never know when you’ll need it for a night on the town or a surprise dinner date. I found this beautiful dress at Macy’s and can’t wait to wear it.
A fancy dress definitely needs some fun pumps to complete the look so I’m bringing along my favorite Rachel Rachel Roy studded “Kimi” platform pumps. I’ll also need some great comfy sandals for casual daytime looks.
I’m not going to get very far without my passport which I thought I had lost, but my wonderful mom found it and made sure I received it before the cruise.
My camera (photo taken with it :)) will capture all of the cruise’s best moments so John and I can remember what a great time we had together.
A travel suitcase isn’t complete without a bikini which I plan to be wearing more than anything else during the cruise.
Some denim shorts and basic tanks will be perfect to throw on over my swimsuit for exploring and getting a bite to eat.
My daily makeup routine will consist of sunscreen, a light foundation, bronzer, perfume and some mascara. There’s no need for heavy makeup on vacation so I’ll be keeping things light when it comes to my daily beauty routine.
