I’m sharing #OBelievers in my life as part of an o.b.® sponsored series for Socialstars™.
Brandon and I have been working our butts off this spring. Days off are hard to come by during building season. Usually if we want to
relax we have to get out of town and away from our jobs. This weekend we’re packing up and heading out for a quick weekend getaway. We’re staying in a quaint little cottage by a lake and the best part, we’re taking the dogs! I’ve never been so excited to explore nature, build a bonfire, roast s’mores and just chill out with our little family. Today I am sharing a few of my packing must-haves for a quick weekend away. P.S. Follow me on Snapchat and Instagram to see where we’re going!
Minimal beauty products
The whole point of a cottage getaway is to relax, be outside and enjoy each other’s company. Leave your beauty arsenal at home and stick with the basics. This weekend I packed waterproof mascara, tinted moisturizer and a little something for my cheeks. I will not be wasting time in the bathroom.
I live in my sunglasses so I have a few pairs packed. Plus, their great for covering up makeup-less faces when necessary.
Another beauty aspect I won’t be wasting my time on this weekend is my hair. Instead I packed a little dry shampoo and a hat to cover my head. Dirty hair, don’t care!
Good reading material
I plan to relax in a chair and chill out so some good reading material is a must. I can always tell when I’m physically ‘not doing
anything’ in my world, it’s when I actually have time to sit down and read something.
When you’re at a cabin or cottage, the last thing you should worry about are blisters or heels. I packed a few pair of my favorite sneakers to get me through the weekend. We plan to do a lot of walking so these will really come in handy.
I’ve got 99 problems and girl problems ain’t one!
No girl ever wants to get caught off guard when girl problem happens. Luckily o.b.® Tampons has their packing down pat—literally. It’s extremely compact and creates less waste so tossing them in my bag is so easy. Plus, they know that every woman’s body is different. These are the only tampons with SilkTouch™ cover for ultimate comfort and protection. We’ll be outside, hiking and down by the lake so girl problems are the last thing I’ll be thinking about.
Whenever we get the chance to hang with the pups we do! Luckily the cottages we’re going to are pet-friendly so we can’t wait to spend the entire weekend with Dasher boy and Meyer. They’re going to LOVE it!
I always try to remember to pack my Polaroid camera. It’s such a fun way to create memories. Plus who doesn’t like a throwback
