Packing for a Weekend Getaway

For the 4th of July weekend some friends and I are going to be staying at Imperial Palace in Biloxi, do some clubbing at the Beau Rivage and finish up with the Detox pool party at Hardrock. With of course some going out to eat and gambling in between. Well, I don't gamble unless it's w/ someone else's money lol, but I do enjoy watching others gamble and getting excited for them when they win, even if I don't know who they are :).

As for packing, I'm surprisingly a very light packer b/c 1. I hate packing and 2. I hate unpacking even more =/.  For my 6 night honeymoon I didn't even unpack my suit case because I hate it so much and just ended up digging through my suitcase throughout the whole trip, kinda stupid of me lol.  Well, since this is going to be such an eventful weekend I think I'll have to pack more than my usual 1 outfit per day. Here's what I'm bringing:


This obviously isn't all for me, my friends and I pool our drinks so we share everything. (On a side note for those who like vodka: I use to drink only Absolute Vanilla, but this Smirnoff one is surprisingly smoother and mixes better with fruity drinks. I thought it was just me who liked it better, but I asked a bartender friend of mine and he agreed that the Smirnoff brand is better than the Absolute, so definitely give it a try. Oh and Skyy vodka is horrible! I probably won't use more than a splash of it for my bloody mary)
Pool side essentials
Basic makeup items, I'm bringing 3 different bronzers lol
Gotta have your basic black heels and nude wedges for any spring/summer time trip
3 different going out outfits so I have variety. Nothing worse than being stuck wearing something you don't want to
I love this black leather clutch. I was dropping off a bunch of old clothes at a thrift store when it caught my eye. Best part is it was only $.50 cents! The shinny back is perfect to add a little sparkly without being too much
Day outfits: 2 sundresses, 2 pairs of shorts and 3 tops
(same pic, w/ flash)

Other things to be packed is under garments, toiletries and hair stuff.


Do you guy recommend me bring anything else? What are your plan's for the 4th?


Don't forget to enter my giveaway, it's been extended till I get 20 submissions on it :)

You're right, it's Italy! My father told me it's the Cinque Terre coastline, the village on the picture is Manarola.
