OMG! It’s only a week away and we are all set to our 6-day family vacay in BORACAY. I am soooo excited already and because of that, I really need to make sure that I have planned everything well– and that starts with packing the stuff that we will be needing.
Oh, yeah! my pink luggage is ready again! I’ve been using this for all my trips and I’m glad it’s still in good condition. I have mentioned in my previous post that I am saving money and getting practical now, and because of that, I didn’t shop for new outfits that much– even the planned Divisoria shopping challenge did not push through and I only have a week to prepare. Well, actually, I a;ready have packed my things this morning and if ever (probability is about 30%) , there is still a chance to add stuff, I will just add another bag or ask one of my companions to have my additional stuff in their bag. So, I will be using some outfits and swimwear that I have worn in my previous summer trips to be more practical. I will show my daily outfits in my vlogs (I will be covering the 6 days summer escapade with my family).
My PINK luggage
Because we will stay longer than the usual, this luggage is not enough, so I have to bring a travel bag plus the big VS bag that I usually bring with me. Aside from the 7kg baggage allowance, I had to book an add-on for the extra 20kg for my stuff. Ok, now you’re all getting curious, let’s find out what I packed in my bags.
- Moisturizing cream (Pond’s Day & Night cream)
It’s a BIG no-no for dry skin (especially for my event which will take place @ the boat under the heat of the sun). As part of my beauty routine, I wash my face when I wake up in the morning using Pond’s Age Miracle Facial Foam and when I go out, I use the Pond’s Age Miracle day cream before I apply makeup. After I have cleaned my face with Micellar Water, I apply the Pond’s Age Miracle night cream. I think this is one of my secrets why I look younger (hi hi!)
To protect my skin, from getting dry, I prepared different sunscreens (from Belo & Beach Hut) but they are already in the suitcase so I wasn’t able to take the photos. I have something for the body, hair & scalp, for the face and one for the kids. Of course, we don’t want to damage our skin with the sun exposure, that’s why it’s really a MUST to have this in our Boracay trip.
- BABY WIPES and COLLAGEN makeup remover
I always have baby wipes in my bag so no dirty or messy moments. I would love to bring my Micellar water but I am not sure if it will be permitted in the airport, so I just put the Collagen makeup remover instead.
I cancelled the make up artist for my event so I will have to do everything on my own. You will see my summer look in my vlogs.
- HAIR STRAIGHTENER & CURLER
I decided to bring this to style my hair for my very important event since I do not have a makeup artist with me on that day. I don’t know yet if I will just have my hair straightened ot have few curls.
I do not have expensive brands of make up but I think these will be enough for me to achieve the summer glow in my event. (L’oreal primer, foundation, face powder, BYS blush on, bronzer, highlighter, and lipstick) I just want something light to look natural, but I want to make sure that I will have a different glow. (On April 30, I will have my very first make up video that will be posted in YouTube). Oh my! hahaha! I think the challenge for me is how to cover my dark circles. I have a Maybelline concealer but I don’t know if it will cover the dark circles that I have. Let us all find out! We will have an honest to goodness beauty product reviews here and in my Youtube channel. I want you guys to watch out for that- it will also be shared in my Facebook page and personal FB account.
I have not worked out since I had my D&C operation last September and cancelled my club membership @ Fitness First. I was afraid that if I do, I might bleed again. The last bleeding I had was last month. Now, I’m doing a 5 minute biking @ home because I need to have a summer-ready body in one week. I brought these outfits just in case it will be possible for me to hit the gym for few minutes. We need to make the most out of our 6-day vacay in Boracay and it would be bad if we couldn’t take advantage of using the gym in Ambassador in Paradise and Alta Vista de Boracay.
I packed my fave swimwears (one piece, tankinis and bikinis that I ordered in Zalora before. I ordered a new one from Bench but I don’t know if i will get it before the 29th.
These are very useful to cover unwanted fats especially now that I don’t get to work out, I really need these 🙂
- maxi/summer dresses
I usually wear maxis in our morning walk. I bought most of my beach dresses at the SM Store.
- shorts (I have only few pieces — I will see if I can still add more).
- summer tops (I also have the old tops I used before)
- dresses for the occasion
I ordered dresses that i will use for the special dinner with my family using Lazada app.
BEACH SANDALS/ SLIPPERS
I bought few pairs of beach slippers that would be perfect to use while walking in the seashore and strolling.
Sweet Valley pocketbook
I decided to bring a book just in case I get bored, I have something to read. This is my fave pocketbook series way back in High School 🙂 I ordered this in 2017 via Amazon but I never get the chance to read this – hopefully in Boracay i will be able to read this.
PLANNER, BLOGGING JOURNAL & VLOGGING CHECKLIST NOTEBOOK
For me to be organized, I need to have my planner with me (for the schedules and to do list ) , my blogging journal (this is where I jot down important information that I have to include here in my blog) and lastly, the vlogging checklist (it includes all the necessary things that I have to include in the vlog in proper sequence).
I bought a BARBIE plastic envelope @ National Book Store for all our boarding passes and hotel vouchers. This will keep the papers safe from getting wet.
I ordered a pink beach bag that I ordered from Zalora for our island hopping on the 30th. I also included a pink sling bag and another one I bought in SM Masinag.
- Mobile phone, charger and powerbank
I do not have a professional camera yet, I am just using my smartphone powered by Globe to take pictures and videos. I also use this for business so I really need to have the phone with me everywhere I go. I also have the monopod and tripod in my bag.
I bring my lappy with me for posting entries in my blog and this is also used by Shane for her reading app.
I am now beginning to be health conscious so I will bring my vitamins with me (Vitamin C and ferrous sulfate) and also Strepsils for my voice.
Of course, we will be needing cash to buy groceries and pay for the accommodations @ the Ambassador in Paradise Hotel and Alta Vista de Boracay.
Thanks to Eastwest Dolce Vita Titanium card — I used this to book some flights and purchase from Zalora.
NOTE: For the complete packing list ,I will be posting my vlog on YouTube and it will be shared on Facebook as well. I will do the shoot after resting or getting a power nap after checking in. I will show you what’s inside my pink luggage while I unpack. Til next post 🙂
