Packing Checklist: Fourth of July
Getting ready to go away for July 4th weekend? It’s definitely time to take a break, get out of town and relax in the warm sun. Can't remember if you packed everything? Then enjoy your summer getaway to the fullest with our vacation-packing checklist.
Bathing suits and cover-ups
Hit the beach and show off your curves with the cutest swimwear. Trying to put on wet, sandy swimsuits is a drag, so make sure to pack at least a couple of suits you love. A nice sarong or stretchy sundress makes a great cover-up so you can head out directly from the beach to other activities.
Flip flops, sandals, and sneakers
Summer vacation is all about fun, so pack a variety of shoes for all occasions. A comfy pair of flip-flops is perfect for the beach or pool, but if you plan to go out at night you might want to dress up. Bring along a trendy pair of wedge sandals, which will put the finishing touch on any outfit. And don’t forget your sneakers for hikes, to play sports or other casual activities.
Make-up and hair products
These are important necessities to get your tourist-type pictures, looking straight out of the magazine. Pack your tinted moisturizer with SPF, waterproof eyeliner and mascara, and cleansing treatments to take care of your skin after the long day. Also, pack your anti-frizz sprays with you, to keep the humidity away from your hair, all while looking fresh throughout the day, such as the Living Proof Weightless Styling Spray, which eliminates frizz by blocking humidity without weighing hair down for frizz-free, smooth hair with natural body.
Sunglasses and sunscreen
It’s fun to play in the sun, but keeping your skin healthy and protected is crucial. A trendy pair of sunglasses will shield your eyes, while you protect your whole body from the sun’s damaging rays with plenty of sunscreen. Our clients’ favorites are Hampton Sun's Luxe Sport SPF 35 and Hampton Sun's Luxe Sport SPF 55: this continuous mist sunscreen offers the highest quality of sun protection in a unique, oil-free formula.
Multi-gadget charging station
Got gadgets? We sure do! Keep your smart-phones, tablets, cameras and other favorites charged up and ready at a moment’s notice with a multi-gadget charging station.
Keep Tablet loaded up
Need a little downtime? Don’t forget your iPad! Before you leave home, take time to load up your tablet with plenty of good books, movies and magazines. It’s less bulky than bringing a backpack full of paperbacks and DVDs -- and you’ll always have something entertaining on hand.
Travel first-aid kit
No one wants to get sick on vacation, but it’s always best to come prepared. Stay on top of your game during all your adventures with a small first-aid kit outfitted with everything you might need in case of allergies, colds and flus, motion sickness or minor cuts and scrapes.
Happy Fourth of July!
