Princess Cruises Gorgeous In Grey - DSC04958

I took my first real cruise this year. And when I say real I mean it was more than a few days at sea. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. But like most trips I take, I just threw some things in a bag and kept it moving (because…packing sucks!). And because packing, and unpacking, sucks this is my version of packing.

Listen, that was a horribly bad idea!

I forgot SO much stuff. My entire week consisted of top of the morning grunts followed by, “I wish I had…”! So I made a list of things that we need to pack for before we take our next cruise vacation!

I know I know, the last thing you wanna be thinking about while you’re on vacation is skin care. But I promise you, it’s something that you need to take into consideration before you leave. Before blogging I never took my skin care seriously, and I really paid for my neglect with each vacation. I had sudden breakouts, excess dryness and wrinkles in places that I care not to share!

I had the opportunity to cruise the Eastern Caribbean (thanks Princess Cruises) where the temperatures are much warmer and filled with humidity. While it was my first time to St. Thomas and St. Maarten, I have traveled to St. Croix in the U.S Virgin Islands in the past and I remember the air not being on my side.
