The Ultimate Vacation Packing List

It’s that time of year…..VACATION TIME!! This year we have opted to travel within the US and will be traveling to


Miami, Florida! Ahhh The last time I was in Miami was back in 2012 as a young wild and free hot thang haha. We truly had an amazing time and this time around it will be a vacation for my family and I. HEY that doesn’t mean I can’t bring sexy back right?!!! Ha ha ha let me stay on track here the point of this post is to be as helpful as possible and share my packing list with you guys! Packing is truly one of my favorite parts of traveling, but it can be somewhat stressful when you’re packing for more than just yourself! When packing for your trip think about or try to picture what you’ll be doing. For example, I see myself waking up in 80 degree weather doing a KICK ass HIIT workout and being a beach bunny until the sun goes down then maybe a nice dinner or something to dress up for and enjoy a night on the town at a kid friendly place. As I’ve gained experience traveling I must say traveling light is key! I try to choose pieces that mix and match and pretty much serve a double purpose.


Toiletries
1. Face Wash 
2. Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Floss
3. Soap/Body Wash
4. Shampoo/Conditioner
5. Razor/Shaving Cream
6.Sunscreen/Lip Balm with spf 15
7. Body Lotion
8. Tanning Lotion/Aloe Vera
9.Brush/Comb
10.Perfume
11. Hair Dryer/Flat Iron
12. Deodorant 
13.Makeup
14. Birth Control
15. Aspirin/ Pain relief medicine
16. Feminine Hygiene Products
17. Glasses/Contact lenses and Contact Solution
For those Beach/Pool Days
1. Flip Flops or Comfy Sandals (ones that you don’t mind getting wet or filled with sand)
2. Towel
3.Cover Up/Tunic
4. Shorts
5. Tank Tops
6. Beach Bag
7.Bikini
8. Sunglasses
9.Hair Ties
10. Portable Music player (if you’re into listening to music on the beach)

Day Clothing/Sight Seeing/Evening  
1. Underwear/Bras
2. Comfortable walking shoes/workout shoes
3. Workout Clothes/ Leggings and Workout Tanks
4. Shorts/Tank Tops
5. Rain Jacket
6. Dressy Sandals
7. High Heels
8.Sexy Dresses
9. Pajamas
10. Evening Purse

For the Kids
1. Shorts
2. Tank Tops/T-shirts
3. Comfortable Sandals and Shoes
4. Tablet or Ipad to keep them entertained as soon as they get bored from the non tech stuff you will be doing
5. Socks/Underwear/Under Shirts/ Pajamas
6. Tooth brush/Tooth paste ( The kid toothpaste that they like)
7. Brush (of course you can use yours that your already taking)
In your carry on bag you want to take of course chargers for your phone/camera/iPad/laptop if traveling with one. A coloring book or activity book for the plane is also a great way to keep your little one entertained. I like to read a book from my iPad or watch Netflix if the flight offers WIFI. I do plan on traveling with a stroller and booster seat for the car rental. Do not forget your important travel documents such as Itineraries, State ID/Driver License/Passport. If you can email yourself a copy of a photo of these just incase thats also a great idea. I always get to the airports super early so I can relax before boarding the plane and make sure my little one is comfy. Ive been traveling with her since she was an infant and she is used to the travel process but for first time parents it can seem a bit daunting. TRUST me its not so bad and once you get through this flight you will want to travel more with your little one. Also a lollipop is great for younger kids as the plane takes off so they are more distracted from the ear pressure. All in all this is my packing list and advice for traveling feel free to suggest any other tips that make your traveling easier!

Hi guys! I took a break from blogging but wanted to share with you guys my travel experiences! I have been to quite a few places so one by one il share my experience with you until youve learned about all the places I have been! Hmmmmm… Where should I start?? Let me take you on an adventure to a tropical place where the weather is nice and hot, the beaches have white sand and clear turquiose water the resort has everything you could ask for all for one single price you pay and the fun NEVER STOPS! Close your eyes and pretend your on a plane to….

PUNTA CANA, D.R!!  Palm trees dot the landscape, and Punta Cana is one of the most beautiful areas of the Dominican Republic. The many resorts located in Punta Cana include large number of new resorts that include spas, casinos, an amazing selection of dining options, on-site weddings, kids’ clubs and swimming pools.  

The Dominican Republic lies about 800 miles/1,280 kilometers southeast of Miami and is bordered in the Greater Antilles chain by Cuba to the West, and Puerto Rico to the East.
The island of Hispaniola, which the Dominican Republic shares with Haiti, totals some 48,482 square miles/126,053 square kilometers, making it the second-largest island in the Caribbean.  

The Punta Cana area consists almost exclusively of large all-inclusive resorts that cater mostly to couples or families. The exception is spring school break, when groups of university students fly down from Canada and the US.

Climate
The weather in Punta Cana is very mild all year-round, with the temperatures averaging around 25°C (77°F). There is a very slight difference in the temperature from season to season. Travellers visiting Punta Cana at any time of the year may almost count on extended periods of sunshine and blue skies – an ideal weather for relaxation, water sports and getting a nice suntan.

Theres so much to do in Punta Cana I could go on forever but dont want to bore you! So with that being said take a look at some pictures and consider going there for YOUR next vacation!
 To Get an idea of where you want to go next I would suggest Bookit.com they are the best vacation booking site ever! Ive booked all of my vacations through them and have no regrets and will continue to use them for my future vacations! 🙂
