Travel

Ryan and I went on a quick vacay to Cancun and I thought I would share a little how to pack for this type of vacation! Here are my essentials when packing for a beach vacation.

 

#1 will always be cute bikinis/swimsuits! I absolutely LOVED this one!

#2 A Cover Up. I had a couple options on our vacation, one like THIS and one similar to THIS. I also love THIS one.

#3 Beach bag. Okay, if I had endless $$$ I would get THIS bag. I would keep it forever so the investment would make sense… however if you are like me and would be brutally murdered by your husband for spending that kind of money on a beach bag.. opt for something like THIS one!

#4 Sunscreen *protect your skin!!! it’s SO important! Last summer I fell in love with THIS sunscreen. It worked so well on myself and the more importantly my little guys! I recommend THIS one and THIS one.

#5 A Variety of Dresses – okay, you clearly need dresses and even more dresses on vacay. Cute summer dresses like THIS for any daytime looks, or a dress like THIS for dinner/evenings out.

#6 SUNNIES! I love THIS pair of sunnies that I bought a few months ago. I am obsessed with how dark they are and the over-sized look. It is perfect for those days where you want to hide your face haha!

#7 Sandals that are durable in the sand/water are super important! I always pack a pair of flip flops, but again I am DYING to get a pair of THESE. So many reviews say they are really durable and last forever so they are worth the investment.

#8 Lipstick. Weird essential I know, but when you aren’t wearing any make up, adding a pop of colour to your lips will make huge difference in how you feel when wearing a bikini & sunnies! I am obsessed with the NARS lipsticks lately. I recommend THIS one.

#9 Hair ties/accessories. A hat is a must and silly me ended up forgetting a hat on our vacay and my face paid the price of that by getting a terrible burn. THIS hat is super cute and beachy, or if you want to go a little more transitional, go for a basic ball cap like THIS. I also recommend bringing hair ties. I am obsessed with THESE and am not sure how I lived without them before. Major must have for any female.

#10 a laundry bag – keeps everything tidy and so easy to just dump the bag into the washing machine when you get home!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Where is your favourite place to travel to?

I am currently looking for a lifestyle blogger that may be new to the scene (just like me), or someone who would like to start a blog, and would be willing to work together! I am currently looking for someone who would be willing to help with taking photo content for my blog. In the same breath, I would be more than willing to do the same in return. 

If you are interested or know someone who would be interested in this opportunity, please email me at: prairiegirlchic@gmail.com

Thank you!

Over the past 5 days Ryan and I travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada. Neither of us had ever been there before so obviously, we had to check it out. We left Winnipeg at the perfect time since the temperatures were dipping down to -30. Vegas weather was sunny and 24 every day, but cooled off a bit at night. It was 100x better than Winnipeg weather, thats for sure.

In this post I will share our Vegas trip details!

(more…)

Preparing for a trip is so damn stressful! My mind always runs a mile a minute the day before and the day of travel. It’s always “what did I already pack? what am I missing? I know I’m forgetting something..” then rambling off the list I made about a week prior to leaving so I would eliminate the risk of forgetting something. This brain of mine goes into panic mode when prepping for a trip!

Last week my husband and I travelled to Vegas for the first time ever!!

Here are some of my essentials for travelling:

#1 – Headphones. This needs to be everyone’s number one. (OTHER THAN YOUR PASSPORT)

#2 – Snacks. I usually throw a couple of granola  bars into my carry on or my purse before the flight. You never know when hunger will strike.

#3 – Gum. Two reasons: Good breath & to help pop your ears!

#4 – A Blanket Scarf/Poncho. This will keep you warm on the plane! wrap yourself up in it like a blanket and you are good to go.

#5 – Extra pair of socks. My feet are always freezing, regardless of what I’m doing so having an extra pair of warm socks are perfect for a flight.

#6 – Hand Sanitizer. I’m not sure what it is about planes but I become a huge germophobe the second we board. Maybe it’s the gross stale airplane air we are all forced to breathe.. I don’t know. But I find most airplanes are just gross.

#7 – Evian Water Spray. This has been something I carry in my purse during the hot summer days as well as every time I travel. It is a water mist in a bottle. Perfect to cool you down in the summer, keep your face feeling fresh on the place, and the best part.. it doesn’t ruin your makeup. It is also airplane safe so you can throw it in your purse/carry on. You can get these at Sephora, and you get two bottles for $16.

Today’s post is a little different… I am sharing my current office space where I like to shoot for my blog, and come up with ideas for different posts.

I know what you’re thinking – dark furniture.. soo not on trend. In life you have to work with what you got, so I’ve added my personality to this old Walmart desk of mine.

Hope you enjoy

The weather in Winnipeg has been nothing less than cold, snowy, and down right gross. I can’t help but daydream a little and share a spot light on one of top places I would love to visit someday.

Santorini, Greece
