Feeling a little inspired with my ideas of escapism centered around idyllic spots in which one can relax in peace, feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin, breathing in the fresh air away from the city’s polluted hustle and bustle. What better way to inspire you too, to get into the vibe of summer than to share my packing tips for a little getaway. As I have been dreaming about getting away to the beaches of Madagascar for a little dream vacation I thought I would theme the post around that. Think unspoiled beaches with no soul in sight. Just you, pristine white sand and the most beautiful aquamarine what’s you have ever laid your eyes on. I will be sharing 20 of Africa’s best beaches in my next post so look out for that.Whether you are headed straight for the beach or relaxation retreat below are my tips on packing. These can be used whether heading for a weekend or longer trip.
1. Pool/Beach Bound – Swimsuit.

2. Pack Light.
3. Beauty Bee.
So you have found the perfect swimsuit and are packing light, that sexy kitten needs to be primed with protection! Cancer does not discriminate, so whether black, white or your shade is somewhere in between, always stay protected. So make sure you keep your skin moisturised and put that sun protection on plus a hat and glasses too.
4. Effortless Separates for Night and Day Coverage
5. Make Me Sparkle
Besides having a soft spot for chocolate my other weakness is all that glitters. Whether small or delicate or super large statement pieces an outfit is not complete without a bit of sparkle. So pack some items to take your look from simple to glam, boho or polished in as quick as a few stacked bracelets or statement ring or necklace. Packing a few accessories when you only pack a few clothing items can also help change up your look without having to pack all your clothes just for a change of outfit.
So those are my tips for an easy, breezy pack-and-go, where your packing is as hustle free as possible before taking off. The result? Simple, coordinated ensemble whether you are venturing onto a beach escape or poolside retreat.Look out for my next post on Africa’s best beaches if you need inspiration on how to spend your summer this year.
