I absolutely LOVE that summer is JUST around the corner. Which also means its time to start planning your summer vacation! If you’ve been following my posts for the last 2 weeks you’ll notice I’ve been highlighting pieces from the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts collection (last seen here), so let’s pretend I’m planning a real vacation to Saint Barts. There are a few must haves from the collection that are needed for any summer travel regardless of the destination. Here are my top 3 must haves for your summer vacation:
1. mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24).
mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24)
If you’re anything like me when packing its about fitting as much as possible and bringing as many multitasking items as possible. The mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case solves both those issues. Pack all your jewelry in its 3 zippered pockets, 1 slip pocket and along the necklace/earring bar, then roll it up! The compacted case fits nicely in your bag and keeps you organized. MULTITASKER: The jewelry roll can then double up as a clutch once you get to your destination!
2. mark. Get Packing Tote
mark. Get Packing Tote ($40)
The mark. Get Packing Tote is just what you need for your carry on bag or overnight bag. Its roomy so you can pack a lot, and I mean a lot!, but it has sturdy and comfortable straps for lugging it around. But on top of all that its a really good looking bag! The neutral camel faux leather is really nice in quality and the pops of pink neon around the trim, studs and tie details give it a luxe look so you can also look like a chic jet-setter! MULTITASKER: Use this bag as your beach bag, shopper tote and/or just as your purse when you get to your destination.
3. mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16 each)
mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16)
Who wants to haul a bunch of makeup when traveling? That’s when a good pallet is really important, one that will give you a ton of looks from one case! I’ve already reviewed and sung my praises on the mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty pallets here, but on a trip these are really all you would need to bring, plus the slim design makes them really travel friendly! MULTITASKER: The mark. Island Beauty Face Pallet is a bronzer, blush and highlight all in one! The mark. Island Eyes pallet contains the perfect shades to go neutral and beachy or bold and smokey!
