What's In My Overnight Bag?

Hello Lovelies! TGIF! Hope you all enjoyed the shorter week thanks to the 4rth! It came to my attention as I was packing up my things for my upcoming weekend away, that I might share with you what I'm bringing along with me. My boyfriend and I are going up to San Francisco for the weekend to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I really only need to bring enough things for 2 days...but packing lightly has never been a forte of mine. I guess I'd just rather be over prepared than wish I had brought something! So if you like, keep reading for a peek inside all of the items I am lugging (or having my bf lug haha) up with me for the weekend!

P.S. I want to apologize ahead of time if I am MIA the next few weeks. I am starting a new job on Monday (yay!) and it will probably take me a little while to adjust to my new schedule. I promise my blog will continue to be a priority though & I have many more posts lined up that I can't wait to get to! Thank you so much for sticking with me!

Lots of Love,



  1. Have fun in San Francisco - you have some amazing products packed, well done! Looking forward to some holiday snaps or a haul :)

    1. Thanks Stacie! I will have a haul up soon! Got some goodies in SF :)

  2. How are you liking the Caudalie products so far? I'm curious about the serum, since I have the Beaute Elixar already and love it!

    1. I absolutely LOVE the serum! Besides the Beauty Elixir it is by far my favorite product from Caudalie. If you are looking for a no fuss, simply hydrating serum, it is perfect!

  3. I love these posts, it can let me be nosey. Look forward to you review on the Dior palette, I really want to get one. Good luck with your new job. x

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment! I agree, these posts are some of my favorites as well! Gives you an excuse to be nosey & see what other people use ;)

  4. Have a good time! I love that clinique moisturiser x

  5. My boyfriend and I are going to San Francisco soon too! I hope you have fun :)

  6. I love these posts, not to sound like i'm copying bright town girl's comment. i just like seeing what everyone else has in their makeup bags and what they take away with them. x
