The Weekender

For the second part of the summer series, I will be highlighting some travel essentials I pack for any trip — long or weekend! Although, what I’m about to show isn’t everything I bring, it is some things I feel is important to remember! Whenever I go away, I tend to pack as light as possible. Somehow, I always feel like I will be losing things. So here’s what I am packing with my Sonia Kashuk Weekender Bag

CocoZona Coconut Water with Espresso I am such a coconut water fan. Just like the trip to the beach, I need to stay hydrated when traveling longer distances. Arizona introduced this new drink infused with caffeine. How perfect? Great for really early morning flights at only 70 calories!

The Scent of Departure NYC Perfume If I had to bring any perfume, I think this would be the most fitting. I love that its a luggage tag. It really gets me in the mood to take a trip. I chose NYC, even though my favorite is Tokyo, because it helps remind me of home when I’m away.

MyGlam Makeup Bag with all my basic products and brushes. Gotta look good!

Hello Kitty…because why not?

Now inside the Sonia Kashuk bag….

Schick Xtreme3 Eco Razors Disposable and totally necessary, especially if you are planning to go somewhere tropical. I love that these are eco-friendly and are made of 100% recycled plastic. When traveling, I feel its better to bring disposables so you can get rid of it before you come back, and these leave you with a guilt-free conscience.

Bangstyle Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner I love the packaging of these bottles. It’s the perfect size to bring along with me on a trip. I end up taking so many photos while traveling, got to have great big hair while I’m at it! Love that they are paraben-free and they smell so frickin’ good.

Tela Guardian Hair Protection SPF 18 Don’t forget about protecting your tresses from the sun! This is especially important if you have colored or damaged hair like me. You don’t want to have fried hair post-vacation.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen So important! Summer vacations poolside or by the beach. This moisturizing sunscreen smells delicious and feels so nourishing on your skin.

  • It contains extra luxurious hydrating ribbons to pamper your skin with 12 hour moisturization.
  • With hydrating ribbons infused with luxurious silk protein and rich shea butter, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ sunscreen pampers and protects skin.
  • Available in SPF 12, 30 and 50, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection that won’t break down in the sun, along with nourishing antioxidants, exotic island botanicals, a warm tropical fragrance and a lightweight, non-greasy feel.

Avon Makeup Remover Wipes These have become one of my absolute favorite wipes. Just because you are on vacay doesn’t mean you can be lazy about wiping off all the junk from your face. I love this because it is ultra-hydrating. I hate it when my skin feels super dry after using other wipes.

Philosophy Purity Facial Cleanser This is my current favorite cleanser. I use it mostly with my Clarisonic Mia. It does a good job removing makeup, yet is gentle enough that it doesn’t strip away moisture from my face.

Marvis Whitening Toothpaste & Oral B Toothbrush Essential.

Travalo Refillable Atomizer This is a great bottle to store your second favorite scent while saving space. Plus, it’s perfect for you purse as well too!

Dove Clinical Protection Deodorant A girl’s gotta stay dry! This contains cleartone ingredients to help restore the skin to the natural color.

Artistry Balancing Lotion It contains SPF 15 and is my current daily moisturizer. Great for combination skin to control that oil. Stay tune for next week’s topic: Skincare!

I hope this gives you some ideas to pack for you next trip! Be sure to check out a roundup of Beach Essentials on the Hawaiian Tropic Things We Love hub, here. (Mine was featured!)
