Road Map to a Perfect Staycation

Hello and happy almost weekend everyone! I wanted to say a quick hello and  share a few photos from a recent staycation Emil and I took. As I have mentioned before, we do not always find the time to go away or have a full blown vacations, however, we are strong believers in making time for ourselves, enjoying each other’s company, and taking a break from all the craziness from time to time. So for us, a staycation is a perfect way to disconnect without spending too much time on actual travel and getting to places.

 

Since we do go an staycations pretty regularly, I have developed a sort of road map to help make these little getaways as relaxing as possible and so, I’d like to take this opportunity to share a few of my tips and tricks with you.

First and foremost is choosing the right hotel; for me, it all depends on what I want to do—sometimes I want to be somewhere close to the beach and other times I want the city. Most of the time, when we opt for the city, I don’t just look at the hotel itself, although a cozy bed and a nice soaking tub are always a bonus, I look at the surrounding area as well. We drive pretty much everywhere in Los Angeles, so we love to stay in an area where everything is a walking distance away, being able to walk to cafes, shops, restaurants and everything else is always a plus in my book!

As far as staycation essentials are concerned, I could never enjoy a staycation properly without the following:

First, the comfiest lounge wear and pajamas. We like to stay in, order room service, and binge watch something on Netflix, so comfy PJs and cozy slippers are a must, and the absolute first things that gets packed.

Second, I like to bring a good pair of headphones with me. I love listening to music, so quality headphones are important to me, and if they also look cute, like the ones I’m wearing, then I’m all in!

Third, I like to pack a few beauty goodies with me. I love to stay in and make my own mini spa day during a staycation. I pack face masks, hair masks, body scrubs, lotions, oils, you name it! Because it’s a staycation, I don’t feel so guilty spending a little extra time on myself so I definitely take advantage of it.

What about you guys? What are your staycation must haves?
