The count down is over and our much anticipated trip to Mercedez Benz Miami Swim Week is finally upon us! We have been so excited about our trip because it’s the perfect excuse to take a mini vacation with our hubbies while checking out the latest swim trends strut down the runway.
In preparation for our trip, we have discovered some great products and tips to share for a smooth and stress-free packing experience.
We headed back to our favorite micro-juicery in town to pick up a quick 3-Day Cleanse to prep us for our trip to the beach. As you all know, we love South Block’s juices and this cleanse was just what we needed to get us back on track and help get us bikini ready. To enter to WIN your very own 3 Day Cleanse ($150 value) from South Block Co send a quick email to freecleanse@southblockjuice.
We love these travel kits by Luminance because their products are not only amazing but they are also TSA approved for carry-on travel! There are many different kits to choose from for every skin type out there. Our Luminance kits will be making the trip to Miami with us and if you are planning a trip soon, you should give them a try! Luminance is also offering Fifty-Two Thursday’s readers 20% off by entering promo code: 52THURSDAYS at checkout. Also you can enter to win $150 of their products by entering here.
Sunglasses, sandals, sunscreen and a beach towel are all essentials when traveling to any beach, so those were obviously things we threw in our suitcases but since we are headed to South Beach we couldn’t forget our lashes!
We think its important when prepping for a trip like this to really plan out your outfits for each day. That way you don’t overpack and bring a bunch of pieces that you won’t end up wearing or don’t even work together. If you plan ahead, you may even be able to fit everything in to a carry-on bag and also have room to bring back a few items you may find while on vacation. We recommend carrying your bag on whenever you can for an important trip so that your luggage doesn’t have the chance to get lost and you can also save yourself from paying that pesky luggage fee. (Sarah learned this lesson the hard way on her trip to Greece!)
While outfit planning and packing the perfect clothing items are definitely important, what we are really going to Miami for is to document the entire experience so we can share it with you! To make sure that we are able to capture each moment without missing a beat, we decided to prepare our camera bags with tech gadgets that will keep us charged and ready to snap away. We packed our Canon 6D DSLR camera, extra lens by Sigma, extra memory cards, batteries, a tripod and a portable iPhone charger by Anker. All of these products are super portable and absolutely essential for any traveling blogger, especially when you are covering multiple fashion shows/interviews in one day.
Our bags are packed and we are so excited to attend all our favorite swimwear designer’s shows to check out their latest collections and we can’t wait to share them all with you! Follow our journey on Instagram and check back soon for a post on Swim Trends for 2015 so that you will be ahead of the game when shopping for suits for next year!
