Spring break is right around the corner, and if you are anything like me, your bags are already packed and waiting by the door. Spring break also happens to be around my best friends birthday, and we are excited to get out of Atlanta for a few days to celebrate at the beach. Might I also add, kid free! 

Before any trip, you find yourself trying to figure out what to bring. When you lay everything out on the bed you ask yourself, "Do I really need this?" Well let me help save some time being indecisive. Outside of the bags you traveled with, when heading to the beach you want to travel as light as possible. Here are my must have items to make your trip to the beach/night out on the town stress free.

My Go-to's: Cover Girl Pressed Powder, Bobby Brown Lip Balm, YSL Faux Cils Mascara, Ultra Matte ColourPop Lip in Solow

Ladies, I know that we want to be cute at all times, however wearing a full face to the beach!? Who does that? Keep it simple with a little powder, waterproof mascara and lipstick. That's all you need with a killer pair of sunglasses. Keeping your compact powder on hand comes in handy because it also has a mirror. This saves you the trip restroom to reapply your lipstick and fix your hair.

Never thought of this, huh? Now is the best time to use those perfume samples you've collected, every time you purchased something at Macy's or Sephora. Many times, we find ourselves heading from the beach to the bar. After you take a quick shower at the beach, freshen up with perfume samples of your favorite scents. They fit perfectly in your cosmetic bag or wristlet and you won't get caught slipping.

After you've finished your enchilada's, you may want to freshen your breath just in case the cute guy at the bar strikes up a conversation. I also prefer mints over gum because they dissolve in your mouth. Gum over a short period of time doesn't take very well. You then find yourself looking for a trash can to spit it out. Most people don't find a trash can, so to prevent your gum from ending up on the bottom of my shoe *insert angry emoji* just use breath mints. =)

Maybe it's just me, but when I'm out having an amazing time, nothing ruins my night more than that random headache that creeps up on you.


This is not something you should only carry on vacation, but at all times. Especially on a girls trip. Someone is always in need of a tampon. Although its been said that women syncing is an urban myth, it still happens. I've been using Tampax Pearl since my high school days and after all of these years they remain my go-to for that time of the month. They are super easy to use, and slip in and out of your bag without leaving the bulk of a maxi pad.

Cell phones, door knobs, and sticky bar tables, Oh My! Keep hand sanitizer in your cosmetic bag/wristlet to combat the millions of germs that will be transferred onto your hands daily. No one wants to return home from an awesome vacation feeling sick. Be on the safe side and sanitize your hands often.

Go from the beach to the bar with everything you need to refresh in tote. Are there any items you would add or take away? Tell me below in the comments.

Until next time,
