The Ultimate Vacation Packing List


It's that time of year.....VACATION TIME!! This year we have opted to travel within the US and will be traveling to

Miami, Florida! Ahhh The last time I was in Miami was back in 2012 as a young wild and free hot thang haha. We truly had an amazing time and this time around it will be a vacation for my family and I. HEY that doesn't mean I can't bring sexy back right?!!! Ha ha ha let me stay on track here the point of this post is to be as helpful as possible and share my packing list with you guys! Packing is truly one of my favorite parts of traveling, but it can be somewhat stressful when you're packing for more than just yourself! When packing for your trip think about or try to picture what you'll be doing. For example, I see myself waking up in 80 degree weather doing a KICK ass HIIT workout and being a beach bunny until the sun goes down then maybe a nice dinner or something to dress up for and enjoy a night on the town at a kid friendly place. As I've gained experience traveling I must say traveling light is key! I try to choose pieces that mix and match and pretty much serve a double purpose.

4. Shorts
5. Tank Tops

For the Kids
1. Shorts
2. Tank Tops/T-shirts
3. Comfortable Sandals and Shoes
4. Tablet or Ipad to keep them entertained as soon as they get bored from the non tech stuff you will be doing
5. Socks/Underwear/Under Shirts/ Pajamas
6. Tooth brush/Tooth paste ( The kid toothpaste that they like)
7. Brush (of course you can use yours that your already taking)


In your carry on bag you want to take of course chargers for your phone/camera/iPad/laptop if traveling with one. A coloring book or activity book for the plane is also a great way to keep your little one entertained. I like to read a book from my iPad or watch Netflix if the flight offers WIFI. I do plan on traveling with a stroller and booster seat for the car rental. Do not forget your important travel documents such as Itineraries, State ID/Driver License/Passport. If you can email yourself a copy of a photo of these just incase thats also a great idea. I always get to the airports super early so I can relax before boarding the plane and make sure my little one is comfy. Ive been traveling with her since she was an infant and she is used to the travel process but for first time parents it can seem a bit daunting. TRUST me its not so bad and once you get through this flight you will want to travel more with your little one. Also a lollipop is great for younger kids as the plane takes off so they are more distracted from the ear pressure. All in all this is my packing list and advice for traveling feel free to suggest any other tips that make your traveling easier!
