Today I am writing to you from cool San Diego. As mentioned previously this is the first actual vacation that I have taken in nearly four years
Yesterday I went to one of the best gyms that I have ever been to. Now don’t get the wrong idea…I have barely begun working out after a 4 year hiatus and normally I wouldn’t be the girl to run to the gym in every city that I travel, but this time I wanted to take my workout obsessed hubby to this amazing gym that I had the privy of shooting at while on location here a few months ago.
Even during my days of hot yoga and gym memberships I rarely ever got ready in the locker room. This is a practice that I loathe immensely, and somehow my husband though he tries cannot empathize with what a woman’s experience is of fighting over a spare blow drier and a good well lit spot in the makeup mirror as opposed to his jump in shower and go routine. But since it was a busy day I agreed to get ready in the “ladies lounge” rather than trek it back to the hotel.
This time a disturbing cocophany of blue tooth conversations happened to my left and right with full size bags of cosmetics, hair products, lotions and fragrances un-lovingly strewn across the counter like a post apocalyptic beauty explosion by the young and fabulous while I sat quietly with my well organized bags of portable and mini sized products. Needless to say I was in and out in half the time with nothing but my regular handbag instead of a giant gym bag.
So here are a few of my favorite traveling- light items.
