Summer is almost around the corner, you guys! Have you thought of giving yourself a break from wedding planning and start thinking about your bachelorette party or getaway? You have been working so hard and it’s now time to plan a trip to the beach with your bridesmaids!
If you are a beauty freak like me, you will want to pack your whole beauty regimen, tons of swimsuits, sunglass options and tons of make up! The question is why? The whole point of giving your self a break with your girls is to enjoy the sun and tons of margaritas, that’s all. Am I right?
So let’s try to keep it simple and pack just the basics. I recently went away on vacation and realized that I just couldn’t have survived without these wonderful essentials.

The perfect swimsuit
Oh boy! Please trust me when I say that I went to every store in NYC to try on bathing suits, I was really close to giving up and wear a mumu on the beach for all I know. It wasn’t until I finally found this super flattering balconette bikini top in stripes and bottom that made me feel like the latina version of Brigette Bardot. Winner!
Smells like beach
You and your bridesmaids had a deep in the pool, walked by the beach and strolled around town. It’s 3pm, so it’s basically time to refresh and get superior odor protection and this Lavanila Healthy Deodorant is here to safe the day! It’s an award winning deodorant that is 100% natural, safe and effective. My favorite essences are the Fresh Vanilla Lemon and the citrus Vanilla Grapefuit, long-lasting freshness!
Clean + Tone
Ok guys, this has to be one of my favorite 2-in-1 formulas ever! After a late night-out with your bachelorette party you are going to have to remove your make up ( I know, it’s like no fun at all but you just have to keep up with your beauty regimen) and Dermaclear Micro Water is not only going to that but it will also remove impurities, while toning and brightening your skin. Trust me, it is soothing, moist and doesn’t irritate your skin. Never underestimate the power of clear liquid!
Long hours under the sun can dry and damage your skin. My favorite mosturizer for years has been Perricone MD Deep Mosturaiser Therapy specially after a couple of days at the beach. This miracle in a jar will take care of flaky skin and make it look dewy and soft!
Just a little gloss
Let’s face it, you won’t need to do your make up while you hit the beach with your girls. Besides, it’s not even good for your skin to wear make up while you are baking under the sun! Just add a little bit of color with my favorite Ultra Shine Lip Gloss from Sephora and you will be all set!
Everybody is wearing them, but do you know why? Because these retro classic Ray Ban Rounded Sunglasses really go with everything! There is a reason they have not gone out of style.
Capture the moments
One of the best investments for your bachelorette trip! Immortalize the fun days with your bridesmaids at the beach, the late night-outs with a Fujifilm Instax Mini. You and your girls are going to have so much fun capturing every single moment of your time together. The best part is that you can then give one picture to each one of your bridesmaids as a little bachelorette favor, how cute would it be! Be sure to get some extra film so you don’t run out of it.
I might’ve taken way too many pictures on my last vacation but I am so glad I have them displayed all over my apartment! Get your own Fujifilm Instax Mini here.
