In the weeks leading up to a beach vacation, my excitement is through the roof. I count down the days while picturing myself tanning on the beach with my feet in the sand. It's like a dream, until I realize I have to pack. I don't know about you, but I hate packing. Between the fear of forgetting something and the stress that comes with deciding what I'll wear, my excitement lessens and lessens.
But I've found a way to make packing a breeze. I created a packing list (displayed below) that includes everything I could ever possibly need. My parents take care of the groceries, so I didn't include that. I also didn't include linens because our condo includes them. You'll have to customize your list depending on where you stay, but the one pictured is a good guide!
In addition to this packing list, I'm going to show you all my beach vacation beauty essentials: what moisturizer I've been loving, which products I use to style my hair, and more. Scroll down to check out my favorites!
I don't know about you all, but I love painting my nails. Getting manicures are fun, too, but I'm a college girl on a college budget. All humor aside, I actually don't dislike doing my nails. It frees me of guilt when they chip, and I can change my polish color as often as I want.
This post is going to be all about finding polish colors that match your style/fashion personality. Specifically, I'll be referring to Essie polishes. Now if you're anything like me, your style could be a few of these combined. That's fine! Just scroll through and explore. There are 8 styles: glamorous, preppy, minimalistic grunge, bold, simply classic, bohemian, feminine chic, and sporty.
