What To Bring On Your Bachelorette Weekend

bachlorette weekend packing

It's officially the first long weekend of the summer season and I'm headed on a staycation in the city... for my bachelorette! Yes, I'm a little nervous, excited and don't know what to expect! I have also waited until the very last second to pack my bag. All I've been told is to show up at the hotel later today, with a few outfit options and a yoga matt. Since I really don't know the plan or what's going down, I'm trying to cover all my basis when it comes to packing. Last year we did my girlfriend's bachelorette in the Bahamas so I think I have a pretty good idea of what I need to bring. Some key essentials to get me through 2 nights with 8 ladies in 1 hotel room. Here's what I'm bringing:
What to pack for your bachlorette weekend

Kaia Naturals Cloths To Go: I don't want something that's going to strip my face of its oils. These are natural, alcohol-free and won't leave you feeling dry. Perfect for taking my makeup off after a long night. I also swear by Kaia natural deodorant, so I'll be bringing that along too.

Cake Beauty The Take Out Dry Shampoo Sheets: I love that these are so compact. I can literally throw them in my bag when I'm heading out the door! No need to lug around a huge spray bottle. Perfect for being on-the-go. And, yes they are 100% vegan, and contain no parabens, sulfates, and nasties!

Vita Liberata: Guys, tanning is a no-no for me. I'm a sunless kind of tanning gal! I'm obsessed with Vita Liberata because it looks so natural, bronzy. I have light skin, so I need something that doesn't make me look orange. Since I can't go out and get spray tans all the time, this tanning water is the perfect back up. I already did a coat on my legs last night and they look so lovely! So fresh and glowy. I'm bringing it with me to do my legs again tomorrow, just because! Haha. I love how easy it is to use with the mitt, no streaks!

Gua Sha tool: It basically comes with me everywhere. I slather on some good quality facial oil and work my way up and down my face to de-bloat and de-puff. This will definitely come in handy tomorrow morning.

Cela Essential Balm: You don't know where you'll need a little moisture. Hands? Knees? Elbows? Lips? Tips of your hair? I'm covered with the all-in-one balm. I looooove that it is all natural, contains some amazing ingredients like coconut oil, bergamot oil, and serious vitamins from the ucuuba butter. Plus, another amazing Canadian brand!

Bride Robe: I have milking my use of this robe! And rightfully so! When else will I get to wear it. No doubt I'm packing it along for the trip.

Fun shirts: So, my girl gang shirts? I had my brother make these for me! And I'm so excited we'll all get to wear them together!

Pixi DetoxifEYE eye pads: Yes, they are essential. You want to look your best, feel your best and puffy eyes will definitely make you feel like crap. I just love the feeling when you take off your eye pads and your face feels firm, tight and like it has literally bounced back to life.

favourite products on my shelfie to buy

Guys-- it's here. The Sephora sale. It's time to stock up on your favourites because these discounts don't come often. It's definitely the perfect time to make your big-ticket purchases (aka La Mer, or the Clarisonic), but for me, I'm going to be stocking up on some essentials. Here's what you need to know:

VIB Members get 15% off with code: HEYVIB (May 2-6)
