Packing List: Puerto Rico


It’s hard to believe that today marks the two year anniversary of my college graduation. In celebration, my four best friends and I are planning a reunion trip this Memorial Day weekend to Puerto Rico! I love New York City, but I’m super pumped to lay on a beach with my girlfriends far, far away from the concrete jungle. Here are some of the essentials that I’m bringing along for my trip:

1. COOLA Cucumber Moisturizing SPF 30 for Face

COOLA is my favorite brand for anything SPF related. I’m indian, so I tan quick (understatement)! So it’s super important for me to carry a powerful SPF product when I’m in the sun and this one is great because it doesn’t feel heavy or leave any white residue on your face.

2. Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

I tend to rock third day hair while on vacation, so carrying a dry shampoo with me is crucial. Klorane’s is great because it also adds texture to my hair—perfect for beachy waves.

3. La Fresh Nail Polish Remover

I always carry a few of these individual wipes in my bag just in case a nail chips or I have the sudden urge to change my polish. You never know what mood you’ll be in on vacation!

4. Zara Strappy Draped Dressed with Frill

Memorial Day weekend officially marks the return of white and I plan to take full advantage. I’m obsessed with this Zara maxi.

5. Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Bath and Shower Gel

I refuse to go travel without this shower gel. (You never know what you’ll get in hotel bathrooms.) I’ve never smelled a more intoxicating body wash in my life. The scent fills my entire bathroom.

6. Marvis Toothpaste

I first discovered this treasure in my Birchbox last month. It seems silly, but I swear once you try a fancy toothpaste, you’ll never go back to a drugstore version. They come in four delicious flavors, but I stick to the mint!

7. Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

The idea of sitting next to the ocean and finishing up a good read sounds like bliss.

8. MAC Russian Red

I could never make a trip without a bold red lip! This shade from MAC has a great matte texture. Plus, I’m excited to pair it with my white Zara maxi for a little pop.


Have fun in the sun but be sure to cover up with one of these sun protectors! Plus, get 35 extra Birchbox Points when you spend $35+ on any products from this category. Just enter code sun35protect35 at checkout through 5/31.
