It might be chilly outside lately, but it cannot be denied that summer is fast approaching. So while we savor the cold weather, I think now is the time to prepare for that huge summer getaway for the upcoming break. Whether you're planning to go to the serene beaches of Palawan, or the ultimate party place Boracay or the surf-haven Baler, these are the fool-proof essentials you must have for an enjoyable trip:
1. Swimwear (that you're comfortable with)
- There's no point in wearing a sexy swimwear that you cannot confidently carry. You'll never have fun enjoying the sun, sea, and sand if you're conscious all the time. As for me, a high waist swimwear that would cover up my mommy marks, such as KYCS' Solenn swimsuit, works perfectly!
2. Huge overnight bag
- Unlike wheeled luggage, overnight bags are not too bulky and take lesser space (which you have to consider if you're up for a road trip). They're equally reliable in carrying all the clothes and essentials you'll need for the trip. They come in cute colors, too! The Winpard Duffle Bags from Lazada Philippines comes in vibrant purple!
3. Sunblock with a high SPF
- With the extreme weather conditions nowadays, it is important to slather on some sunblock whenever we're stepping out of the house. The ones from Belo contains SPF 50 and is easy to apply. We don't want to have sunburns and skin cancer, do we?
4. Comfy sandals
- Since you'll be walking all day (and probably all night, too) during your trip, it is important to have a pair of comfortable yet stylish sandals. A neutral-colored one, like the beige Samantha sandals from H2Ocean, goes well with literally everything! No need for you to bring another pair cause this will be the only pair you'll need!
5. Point and shoot camera
- Capturing every moment of your getaway is a must so you'll have something to reminisce. In my opinion, point and shoot cameras are more preferable for trips since they're easier to carry unlike DSLRs. The quality of the photos of point and shoot cameras are just as great. They also come in cute colors, too! The Panasonic FH2 Digital Camera comes in Rose Pink and has 14MP for that amazing shot! (It is on sale for 40% off, too! ;))
Of course aside from these, you'll be needing comfortable clothes, great food, and amazing company. It's definitely always the people that we enjoy these trips with that completes our getaways. I hope you'll have fun planning your trip! :)
