Bring It With
I received a couple items in the past few days that are going to be perfect for our trip. Even though we’re not leaving for a couple weeks, I have a bag that I am putting trip items into as a “pre-packing” attempt so I don’t forget anything I intended to bring with as the chaos of departure week draws nearer.
First, this Camelbak Groove water bottle that I received is coming with.
According to their site the Camelbak bottle has a filter built into the straw “to turn tap water into fresh, great-tasting water anywhere you go.”
I do use lotion daily on my body, but I confess, I am not a fan of sunscreen. I love the sun in all its glory and if I get extra wrinkles because I don’t slather up with sunscreen, it’s a calculated risk I’ve made.
Something about the smell of sunscreen that really bothers me. I don’t like the way it feels on my skin but it’s the smell that turns me off most. The Eucerin isn’t branded as a sunscreen per se, and doesn’t smell as sunscreen-ey to me as regular sunscreens do, but I can still smell it to a small degree.
In general, I like Eucerin products because of how moisturizing they are. I grew up with my mom handing me a tub of Eucerin to combat the effects of long, drying, winters on my skin.
For this precious skin, especially when we’re traveling on the Equator, some sunscreen is a must.
The lotion with SPF 15 & 30 will come in handy.

Other things I know I am going to bring with on our trip include:
Also bringing my Toiletry Kit that I really like
And I’m bringing a good, laidback attitude about everything!
Thanks for the comments on my last post about what the Easter Bunny brought when he stopped by. Yes, Skylar is loving her new “phone” and she is so happy about it.
1. What did you do over the weekend? Did you celebrate Easter? Any great food or stories to share?
As I mentioned last night in my post, all I needed to see was Skylar’s excitement from her Easter Bunny loot and my weekend was complete.
2. What do you bring with on trips? Any “must haves”?
I have posted before that I do try to enjoy the food that is local at my final destination because I think it’s fun and adventurous to try the local cuisine. However, common sense prevails and I bring enough portable snacks and fresh fruits and veggies if possible (not always with air travel to bring fresh produce with) but I don’t leave home empty handed. Never know when hunger is going to strike or what the options en route to one’s destination are going to be.
In addition to some snacks, I never go on trips without a couple bikinis, running shoes and socks, my passport, cash money, one credit card and one debit card, a computer, camera, and whatever shampoo and conditioner I am loving at the moment. Sorry, no hotel mini bottle samples for me. Chapstick, gum, and a sense of humor about long travel days also make the trip list.
Those are a few must haves of mine. What are yours?
P.S. If you’re just catching up on posts from the weekend, here are mine since Friday:
