Happy Saturday night!  I am packing for our trip and thought I would throw together a quick post about my packing list!  If you are going on a trip soon, take a look at what I bring.  Do you pack the same?

I am so excited to be in the sun and on the beach tomorrow.  However, it was 50 degrees outside today, like I didn’t need a coat.  What is this Michigan?

So for this trip I am only packing a carry-on.  I will admit that I am an over-packer so this was a little hard for me.  I just get so scared that I might need something while I am away.  Like I think I will pack this shirt because I may want it, even tho I haven’t worn it in 4 years, you never know if the weather is perfect and I neeeeeeed that shirt.  Then I never wear it (surprise, surprise) and it just sits in the corner of my closet collecting dust.  It is a vicious battle.  I know you feel me.  Anywho, so I put together my list, the list is not over board.  Oh and I love to start with makeup because that is the funnest part.  I really put thought into what I put on my face in hotter climates as I don’t want clogged pores.  Some of my favorite items are linked!  Oh, ps, make sure your liquids aren’t more than 3 oz!
