What I’m packing for my weekend getaway to New Orleans! ✈️

Good morning and happy Monday you guys! 

My trip to New Orleans is 24 days away and you know I always love to plan ahead with everything because it makes me feel more organized. So I thought I’d go ahead and think about what I’m packing for those 3 days especially since we decided to go to the beach! 

I think I’m going to bring 4-5 outfits total to wear out in case I need to change or I’m not feeling it. So for those I will have to go shopping for, but this is how I am imagining it to be. 

  • two dresses (need to buy some pretty ones)
  • pair of jeans
  • leggings
  • 4 pairs of shirts, can be casual or fancy 
  • 4 pairs of shoes
    • converse
    • wedges
    • sandals
    • flip flops for the beach
  • swimsuit (need to buy a new one from Target soon unless my old ones can fit)
  • beach cover-up
  • sunglasses (need to buy a nice pair because I just gave mine to my mom)
  • possibly a cute sun hat
  • my pjs (a shirt and shorts)
  • an outfit to travel in for the car ride

I think that’s about all the clothes/accessories I should be bringing since we will just be gone for 3 days. I always overdo it, but I guess you can never have too many back up clothes right?! 

Some of the other things I’ll probably pack in my purse or book bag is my Kindle for the car ride so I can read my book, my planner (maybe, not sure if I want to carry this around yet), chapstick, wallet, my camera + charger, phone charger, and my camera stick. Want to carry around a light book bag, so I’m either going to use one of my older ones or get myself another one! I have been eyeing this Coach one, but I’m not 100% sure if I want to buy it yet. 

What are some essentials you guys pack on a short trip like this? Should I bring anything else?! Let me know in the comments 🙂

Today I woke up pretty late again (10 is late for me). Anyways I just hung around at home until 1 and went to hangout with my cousins who moved to Florida who came to visit. It was fun, we went to Starbucks and then to visit my parents who were working on the house. Here’s the pictures of us 🙂 


After that I showed them my house bc they wanted to see it and then I took them back to their friends house where they were staying.

I’ve been at home since, making some chicken pasta for myself. I’m back on Athlean X and I’m ready to kill it the next 3 months! It’s time 🙂

So a little bit of an update… Mirhad texts me while I’m preparing the pasta and he’s like I’m going to come get the wipes to clean the inside of my car. So I’m like sure and as soon as I see that text here he comes walking through the door. He goes into the kitchen and he’s like ‘pasta?!?!’ and I’m like yes do you want some… and of course he says yes. I thought we weren’t going to hang because I had some stuff to do, but this dude comes back over to eat some chicken alfredo pasta hahahaha. I love him, seriously just makes me laugh so much. 🙂

I’m going to work on another blog post while watching some shows!
