FBFF: Summer Vacation
I'm pretty bummed about this topic because I don't have any fun summer plans. My parents have a house by the Jersey Shore so I go there often, but not typically as a "vacation." I'm also taking Saturday classes so I don't have much time for my friends, let alone a vacay. Hope you all get to do something fun!
1. When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra?
I don't know if I have a mantra. I always try to bring clothes that I can mix 'n match so I can pack as little as possible. I also lay out my clothes to see what I have. I'm very much a planner.
2. What are your must packs?
Besides the obvious, my skin is very picky and needs its routine. I definitely make sure to bring the same products but in travel size. Bring accessories to spice up your clothes, rather than pack lots of different clothes.
3. What are you happy to leave behind?
A winter coat.
4. Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one suitcase?
I gave some packing tips in this post. Definitely maximize space. Try to wear as much as you can on the plane (like I always bring an extra sweater to use a blanket since it's so cold on planes!).
5. Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand?
I just purchased Kelly Cutrone's new book Normal Gets You Nowhere, which I hear great things about. I'm also really interested in Tina Fey's Bossypants!
What are your summer vacation plans?
