In honor of my trip to the Poconos this weekend with CA, and a few of our crazy friends I’m sharing what my weekend getaway essentials are. CA and I do a few getaway weekends a year, whether it’s to Six Flags (since we’re season pass holders), visiting friends, or doing weekend trips. So I’ve tried my best to “master” the art of packing as “lightly” as possible, but let’s face it I’m a girl, I always over pack. Especially in the winter, spring, fall, summer, because ya know I like my options. I have my go to bag, Vera Bradley Grand Traveler Travel Bag, it’s perfectly, huge, spacious. It’s got 2 short handles, as well as one LONG handle to make it a crossbody so it’s perfect. On the inside it has- two slip pockets in back and a large pocket underneath the front magnetic flap and four large slip pockets inside.
So now that you know all about my bag, what do I always pack?! Well since I’ve been on a kick to lose weight I’ve always brought my workout clothes, as well as much needed necessities that always need to be packed. I like working out at least one of the days we are away, it makes me feel less “guilty” about any indulgences we have. Plus it’s like hey I burned calories, plus usually we are walking miles, or jumping up and down so it’s all worth it.
Capris, Tank, Sports Bra, Sneakers, Fitbit Blaze, headphones and sneakers (usually I wear them).
Clothes/Layers- winter time
Leggings (I LIVE in these), flannel shirts, tanks, under garments, socks, “fancy” shirt for dinner out, 1 pair of jeans.
Contact lens case, glasses, hair ties, and anything else that is person specific.
SweetSpot Face wipes & body wash- I love the smell of great body wash that doesn’t dry out your skin and is pH balanced for your sensitive area. SweetSpot Vanilla Blossom Gentle Wash smells delicious, and is a perfect body wash to grab and have in my getaway bag. It’s a great match with the SweetSpot Grapefruit Verbena On-The-Go wipes, which are great for refreshing after a workout, girls night out, date night and when that time of the month strikes, it does it all!
SweetSpot Labs is made by women, for women and is more than just pretty packaging and refreshing scents. The fun and fearless women at SweetSpot Labs created the first pH balanced feminine skincare line. You’re made differently and so are we. With beautiful natural ingredients to gently clean, hydrate and soften skin, we’ve got all of you covered, and we think that’s pretty sweet.
U by Kotex– Aunt Flo can be a mean and cruel coming at the WORST times, when you aren’t HOME, where you have the essentials. So just incase I get an unexpected visitor while away I carry some U by Kotex Click Tampons. They’re small, discreet and fit perfectly in my little pouch that I carry all essentials in.
U by Kotex offers a wide range of unique, colorful, and bold feminine hygiene products for all your period needs. We want you to experience an unexpected sense of relief from the failures of tampons, pads, or liners. We want you to feel comfortable enough to create your own dialogue, question your current experience and be motivated to act differently. We tell it like it is. We are witty, smart, sassy and humorous. We speak about periods and period products the same way you do.
The best part, SweetSpot, U by Kotex, and Target are going to help you by my last 3 essential items, with 15% off using CartWheel from Target!
