Summer Packing Essentials

School is out and it is officially Summer vacation!! I don't know about you guys, but I am heading to the Caribbean on Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas! I have been on the Allure of the Seas which is RC's sister ship of Oasis, but this will be my first time on the Eastern Caribbean leg of the cruise. We are going with my husbands family, 5 kids, and 8 adults, so it will be a great time! However, going on vacation can be super stressful not knowing what to pack. Clothes, and shoes, I think are the easy part. Load up on maxi dresses, bikinis, and flip flops. But what about those things you wish you had, but didn't think of? Or those things you meant to bring, but forgot! To help you out, here is my list of absolute Summer travel necessities!


Beats by Dre Wireless
Selfie Stick
Ralph Lauren Aviators
Bright Bikini
Olympus T860 Tough Digital Camera
Small Crossbody Bag

The electronics are pretty obvious. The iPad and iPhone are a must for listening to music on the beach, or at the pool, and keeping yourself entertained on the plane. The wireless Beats by Dre earphones are so amazing though. Being able to keep your phone secure in your bag and out of the heat, and still being able to jam out, is such a lifesaver! And let me tell you about this Olympus Camera....

This is the Olympus T860 Tough Camera. Its called tough for a reason. This bad boy is shockproof and completely waterproof up to 50ft! This means you can film full 1080p HD videos underwater! I cannot wait to take it on the Atlantis waterslides in the Bahamas. Not to mention it also has a flipout screen for selfies with your selfie stick! This has got to be the best Summer Camera of all time!

Now when you are on a cruise, you really don't need a purse. Touchups aren't really necessary when you're laying on the beach or at the pool, and you don't need to carry cash, as everything is already paid for and loaded to your Royal Caribbean SeaPass card. So all you need is a small cross body bag for your Olympus Camera. This bad boy is from Coach, and it is perfect! There are also credit card slots if you feel the need to store ID, Credit Cards or some cash.

Another huge must are the ever trendy flash tattoos. These ones are by Snaptats and I will be bringing tons of sheets of these to use on the cruise! All you need is water and a washcloth to apply, and to remove a little bit of rubbing alcohol gets rid of them in a jiffy. Make sure to follow me on Instagram and the blog for all of my outfit posts from the cruise featuring these temporary tats!

Happy Vacationing! XOXO
