Cancun: Travel Essentials!🌴


SUMMER IS HERE! I mean yea i've been on break for about a month but this is what I've been waiting for: VACATION!! I haven't been on a vacation outside of California for quite a while and this is much needed.
Plus I'm going with my family so that makes it even more exciting!

This is going to be a little series of my Cancun adventures so stay tuned for more! If there is anything specific you want me to post about my trip let me know in the comments or on social media!

If you're anything like me, you over pack... a lot. So I decided I'd try not to for once, now will I actually not, that's a mystery to meπŸ˜‚ But here goes nothing, here are the major travel essentials for my trip to Cancun!



 First things first: a cute suitcase! My suit case is Steve Madden and it was from T.J. Maxx for only $70! The carry on was from Ross for $30! Let me tell you places like T.J. Maxx and Ross are the BEST place for luggage! Obviously you don't need to spend a fortune for good quality luggage.

Next I have all my tiny travel sized things. Toothpaste, dry shampoo, face wash, floss and makeup wipes. I also have an on the go razor and cloths to take off my makeup with.
Here I have sunscreen, sunglasses, shaving cream, deodorant, and my makeup. Makeup is one of those things I KNOW i'll over pack because since I'm going to Cancun I really won't be wearing
much makeup but I'll most likely take it allπŸ˜‚

ELECTRONICS!! This is way more important to me than it should be probably but whatcha gonna do! I have my polaroid, portable charger, a SD card uploader, phone, and lens for my camera since I could photograph my camera. Also don't forget your chargers for all your devices!!

Hats Hats Hats. The sun in Cancun is gonna be my main enemy against my pale skin in Cancun so hopefully these will help me out a bit!

Also a quick DIY for y'all! I made this hat and it was so so easy! First purchase a plain baseball cap on a website like amazon, mine is a black suede baseball cap. Then purchase a patch of your choice and either glue or iron it on depending on the patch! There you have it, your own personal cap!

Is it bad that these aren't even close to all the shoes I'm planning on bringing? Shoes are obviously the best thing on this planet! TIP: Break in your shoes before your vacation so you aren't in pain when you should be relaxing!

If there are going to be big bodies of water and tropical weather where you're vacationing I think swimsuits are a MUST! Both of mine are from target and I'm obsessed with them. Also my flower crown will for sure make an appearance on at least one of my outfits.

Now obviously I do a lot to my hair and it doesn't come naturally so my personal hair care products are a necessity. My hair is wavy and thick naturally so I'm planning on lots of braids and buns throughout the week!

I hope this helped you all out! There is obviously somethings not shown but these are the major items I felt were important, not just for Cancun but any tropical vacation!
