In My Suitcase...

We are leaving for Destin, Fl on Friday w/ another couple. I definitely can't wait to hit the beach, I haven't been in like 2 years and Florida has always felt like a second home to me. I'm most excited about doing some body boarding. First thing I'm going to do when we get there is hit up a surfboard shop, I want to get one of those really good body boards that are made of surfboard material, unlike the cheap foam kind they sell at Walmart.
 Anyway, I wanna come back looking like this. Yup, so tanned that I look like another race lol. 

This vacation will consist of as little clothing as possible. It's been like 95 degrees everywhere and I can't even walk from my house to my car without breaking a sweat. 

Here's what I'm packing for the 4 day trip:
We are going for 4 days so naturally I need 4 pairs of sunglasses lol. ( and of course I'll end up wearing the same pair the whole time). Sunglasses from top to bottom: Steve Madden, Kenneth Cole, Michael Kors, Oscar De La Renta

3 bathing suits. Left to right: Billabong, Old Navy and Target

How perfect are these earnings for this bathing suit? 

I won't be doing much with my hair. I have curly hair so I definitely won't be straightening it everyday on vacation. I plan on wearing it natural and using a texturizing paste to keep it beachy looking. As for the Sun In, I didn't know they even made that anymore, but when I saw it I had to pick it up. I plan on using it midway down my hair. Maybe it will kinda give me that ombre look...or it will just be a complete disaster. We shall see.

This carrot oil can be used for your hair and body. Carrot oil is also much better for your skin that the regular tanning oils because it contains all kinds of antioxidants (see my review of it here). I'm not saying that tanning is healthy b/c it definitely isn't, there is no healthy way to tan but since I never tan I figured I would go this route. The Neutrogena is for my face. 

Makeup. It seems like a lot, but I probably won't wear most of this stuff unless we're going to a club. 

Face stuff, I'm bringing 3 bronzers.

Just going to keep it natural for the lips. 

I haven't picked out clothes just yet. I'm probably just going to bring 2 pairs of shorts, 2 dresses, 5 tops, a going out outfit, 2 cover ups and 1 pair of heels, wedges and flip flops. I'm pretty easy when it comes to packing clothes for a short trip. 

Where are you guys going for your summer vacation? Have you ever been to Destin?
