Holiday Faves

Huzzah! Friday. Technically, yesterday was my Friday because I am on holiday today! We are leaving today for our 'Boston' trip. We are calling it the Boston trip even though we are only going to Boston for a day. I'm so excited! Girls trip, bucket list what what.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Today, I thought I would share some of my favourite things about going on holidays, or vacation if you will.


1. Sleeping in! Or not. 


Sleeping in is the best. But because I am crazy planner lady, my favourite thing to do is stuff! Getting up early and squeezing as much into a day as humanly possible is the best. The fact that it's my choice to get up (and not because of work, ugh) makes it fundiddlyun.


2. No worries.

The only thing I'm worried about is the weather, or flights. But everything else? No shoes, no shirt.. no fucks!


3. Dressing Up + Going out


I mainly wear work clothes so I get excited when I step out of the work appropriate or sleep appropriate rut I'm in.


Plus, going out on the town on vacay is so fun. All the funs shall be had!


4. Shopping!

Shopping on holiday is my fave! I used to collect souvenirs like magnets or lame tshirts (ahem, still do), but now I buy clothes, shoes or house decor (that will fit in my suitcase) so that I can be like, 'oh this old thing? Got it in London'. Shopping with my girlfriends is even more fun.


5. Calories don't count on holiday.


Well they do, but.. shut up will you, I'm on vacay! Let me enjoy my ice cream and chocolate and pancakes.


And let's not forget the most important holiday food group..

Linking up with Amanda, but of course! Have a great Labor Day Weekend everyone!

  1. Haha an awesome list! Holidays are just the best! I can never sleep in when I am on holiday as I like to squeeze as much into one day as is humanly possible. Totally agree that calories don't count on your jollies, it is quite astounding how much I can eat on one trip, oh and don't even get me started my my love of mojitos, they are a holiday must! Have fun in Boston! :)
