Here’s a glimpse into what I packed for South Africa. Traveling so often has turned me into a packing pro so I don’t overpack nor under pack anymore.

Shoes: All about comfort since I’m traveling to a tropical area where I know I’ll do tons of walking and hanging by the beach. From top left to right: Schutz Lace Up Sandals (also here), Senso Aggie Leopard Shoes (boots version here), Charles Philip Shanghai Tartan Slippers and Camo Slippers, Nike Roshe Runs, Senso Levi BootsSenso Frankie Sandals, and Senso Riley Heels

Bikini: I discovered Maaji via Revolve and I love their colorful printed tops! Both bikini tops are from them.Beauty: I don’t go anywhere without my EOS lip balm (you’ve seen it in my Aruba travel post) and even though these are super hard to lose unlike other lip blams thanks to its shape, I always have a few lying around in different places just incase I forget. Whether it be my car, my purse, make-up bag, etc. Honeysuckle Honeydew, Pomegranate Raspberry, and Summer Fruit are my absolute favorites and Wesley Mason’s.

For my skin, especially to remove my make-up, I like using Clinique. Their 7 day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula and Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm are my everyday go-tos. I have really sensitive skin, so these work magic for me.

  11. Hope you have a fantastic time in South Africa, insanely jealous!

  12. Ahhh I can imagine how hectic your life would be with all this packing and traveling! Albeit pretty fun~ ;) It seems like eos is everyone’s favorite! It wasn’t mine but maybe it was the scent I wasn’t crazy about?

  13. I love the EOS lipbalms – they actually taste good. I’ve travelled a lot, and my parents have always taught me to pack for three days when you’re going on a two week trip. Everything always needs to fit in a carryon bag. Normally I pack for five days though.
