Friend Friday - Vacation

Friend Friday
The Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group was created by Katy over at Modly ChicEvery week Katy puts together a set of questions and on Friday if you want to participate, you answer them on your blog and link back up at Modly Chic

1. When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra?
If I "accidentally" forget it, we'll have to buy a new one when we get there.
2. What are your must packs?
The things that I can't get - my glasses, an extra pair of contacts, prescription medicine. Anything else can be bought or replaced. 
3. What are you happy to leave behind? 
Being an adult for a few days. Yeah, you still are but being on vacation is like taking a break from everything and I love that.
4.  Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one suitcase?
Pack multiple tops for each bottom (you can likely re-wear them) and plenty of accessories - they'll help you re-invent what you have. And save room for what you're going to buy!
5. Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand?
I always take the same thing - a stack of magazines and an iPod. Never fails :)

Leaving room for the shopping is always key! I tend to pack to the brim, and then get in trouble coming home, since I too like to shop on vaca!

Josie said...

I'm with you -- always pack more tops than bottoms!

k, perfect. I agree with everything you said. Now come back for me!!!! :) :) Oh, and take me to a beach I guess since I don't technically have a vacation planned...

MyFavouriteThings said...

I love how you manage to keep it so simple! I always obsess slightly about not forgetting things because I'd rather not have to shop for anything!

Closet Fashionista said...

Weee! Lovely answers! and YES replacing forgotten things is always lovely ;)
Unless like me you forget your bathing suit at the beach and miss the first day at the beach because you have no bathing suit and your mom is too mean to take you shopping right when you get there ;)

Kimberlee said...

Yes, definitely don't forget anything that you can buy at your destination. And always full charge your iPod!

Love that you will replace anything you 'accidentally' forget! LOL Agree with you completely about not having to be an adult for a few days. Its so nice to just relax and not really have to worry or think about anything but maybe how tan do I want to get!

Yvonne said...

I love the "being an adult" part of your answers! That is exactly how I feel when I leave my world behind. Who am I kidding? I am like a little kid on the inside almost everyday anyway!! I too believe I can just buy some things when I arrive - like shampoo/conditioner.
Happy Friend Friday!

Packing multiple tops for each bottom is such a good tip!

This is perfect-and since I'm itching to pack for our upcoming vacation, I'm giggling at thinking of my own packing behavior. I'm one of those crazy people that makes detailed lists of everything in my bag-oye!

cbenavides said...

I am totally stealing your mantra. I forgot my purse? Oh darn, I'll have to buy a new one.....

Fashion Tales.... said...

haha! I love #1 mantra. Also, love to remix and wear things because I'm a light packer. -xo

Definitely leaving room for shopping is a must!

I don't know how I missed this. Can't remember back to Thursday night. Oh yeah. I made dessert and passed out.

Anyway. I am adopting your #1 immediately. Genius.
