Let's Getaway!

Going away this weekend? 
With 4th of July this weekend I'm sure a lot of people will be heading off to fun destinations or to visit family & friends. I will be heading off to Iowa to see a few Pi Phi sisters so I am super excited! Not to mention I will experience my first "small town" 4th of July. It shall be interesting.... 

Anyways, here are a few of my travel must haves. These are some of the things I will be taking with me on my little weekend getaway. 

  1. Cosmetic bag | I always need some type of cosmetic bag to hold all of my toilet trees. This one form Forever 21 is adorable! My friend gave me one of there makeup bags a little while back and it is actually perfect for traveling. Not to mention they are super affordable and come in a variety of prints and colors. 
  2. Foundation | Foundation is a must for me. If I don't have foundation on there is something severely wrong with me! So, it is for sure an essential if I am going away for a long weekend.  
  3. iPad | Instead of carrying around a laptop I can now just bring my iPad. I recently got an iPad so I am excited to travel with it! 
  4. Cha Cha tint | If I had to take one blush with me it would probably be my travel size Cha Cha tint. It is great because you can swipe it on and go. No brush needed! So if you are tight for space this is a great option. 
  5. Stud earrings | I don't like to bring a lot of earrings when I travel because I'm afraid I will loose them! So, I just bring one pair of neutral studs that I can wear with anything. 
  6. Fun phone case | I can't go anywhere without a fun phone case. Kate Spade ones are my favorite. 
  7. Deodorant | Since it is super hot now and days deodorant is a must. I don't want to be smelly! I use Secret clinical strength. 
  8. Travel size products | Whenever I travel I always bring travel size products. I usually go with Bath and Body works for lotion and body wash then Herbel Essence for shampoo. 
  9. Chino shorts | As you may know, chino shorts are my go-to summer piece. They are super comfortable and come in fun colors and prints. 
  10. Jack Rogers sandals | If I had to take one pair of shoes it would probably be my Jack Rogers. They go with everything I wear and can be casual or dressy. 
  11. Longchamp tote | I love this tote bag! It is the ideal purse to travel with because it is so light and easy to carry. I highly suggest one if you just need a quick bag to throw your stuff in. 


  1. I love that phone case!! Kate Spade is simply the best :)

  2. My Longchamp and Jacks are my key pieces. They've literally gone all around the world, been to every continent except for South America and Antarctica. Two of my holy grail fashion products for sure!
