Well… I’m finally back! I wish I could say I took a long, well deserved break, but you know me, one of my favorite saying is “no rest for the wicked”…
Even though my laptop was still glued to my hands non stop, it was cool to be able to work and ooookkkk, I’ll admit it! Relax a little in more exotic places than my Morodan Offices.
After travelling three times in a little over a month, I am officially versed in the art of speed packing. In my last trip, with the Party Sails, I (almost) didn’t forget anything at home (damn you nail polish!). As Fitz loves telling me, I sometimes am a complete idiot and go to the beach without packing essentials, such as sun screen. Since I love you all and want you to be better off than me…
Summer Travelling Essentials
Sun Screen – duuuh. What can never go missing from your purse is a cream that protects your skin from sun burns, premature ageing, sun spots and other totally not fun illnesses. For my face I chose one from Lancaster and for the rest of the body, Piz Buin is the weapon of choice.
Sunglasses – Another one that seems pretty obvious, but I sometimes forgot. Do I even need to explain why you need sunglasses during summer trips? Thought so. This summer, I’m in love with Versace, Tom Ford and Burberry.
Different Purses – You’ll say this is the consumerist in me speaking but wait a minute. You really have no idea how silly it can be to go to the seaside without a proper beach bag. Can you carry a towel, book, sun screen, phone, money, maybe even a beach bag in your evening clutch? Thought so. You need something spacious, yet not pretentious, such as this Balenciaga baby. For city breaks, you need something smaller, classier, but still big enough to fit all necessities. I would definitely pick the Valentino Small Rockstud for this job. Then, there’s this place that all trips have in common: the airport. There you need something small, so your ID, passport, money and phone don’t get lost amidst all the random things we carry in our bags. This Fendi number is perfect.
Ladies, don’t learn it the hard way, like I do almost all the time. Learn from my mistakes and get ready properly for the fabulous trips that await you this summer.
