My Vegas Essentials

Have I mentioned I'm heading out of town Monday for a little Vegas getaway? This doesn't happen often for me, so it's a monumentous occasion. Poor college students can't just run off for a fun weekend whenever they please....sadly.

Everyone I know brings certain things along when they travel - here are a few of my "necessities!"
1. Magz for the flight. My mom bought me these (except for my sorority one, obviously). Yay, Mom!
2. Pretty shuz. These guys are coming along for this round....the little pink ballet flats are another Mom-gift that will obviously come in quite handy after wandering the strip for hours in pumps.

3. Travel-sized products: okay. I, like everyone else, prefer to use my cleansers & lotions of choice, but when traveling one must seriously get over it & pack lightly. I actually love Tresemme's hairspray, so the little travel sizes are always in my purse regardless. I also find that travel body washes & whatnot are a great way to try out potential new full-size purchases. My fave facial cleansers for trips are definitely cleansing clothes. Especially when slightly (to mostly) intoxicated.
4. ADVIL. Duh.
5. Mini champagnes & Toblerone. They make the Advil a necessity. And travel tolerable.
6. Two of your best friends. Obvs!
The bride, Meghan, is on the left, & my travel buddy Cassie is on the right.

Happy Friday!

Love this post: I carry more magazines (I need to read that Vogue with SJP) and books when I travel, it weighs me down!

And I agree about the travel toiletries...clothes are best for travel or any overnight elsewhere and I love miniature sized washes and lotions.

Have so much fun-I've never been to Vegas...looking forward to hearing about it...girl weekends are so great : )

I <3 Toblerone!

Mini champagne?! I never knew such a fabulous thing existed!! I'm wishing I had one of those AND a Toblerone right about now.

Looks like a great trip!

(And how great are those little champagnes? Also great- those wine juice boxes. The booze industry is genius!)
