5 Things to Do Before Your Winter Vacation
Temperatures are dropping and cool, crisp scents are in the Washington air. With winter around the corner, we know that some of you are probably preparing for an amazing sun-filled trip far away from the chilly northern climate. We can hear the beautiful paradise escapes calling your name!
Before you step foot on the airplane, make sure to to do these five things in preparation for the ultimate beach vacation.
Stock up on beach accessories
Don’t wait until the last minute to gather important accessories people don't normally have on hand in the winter. This includes sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and a sun hat. Although bathing in the sun sounds dreamy, be prepared to protect your skin from prolonged sun exposure.
Prepare care for pets and plants
Whether you opt for a house sitter or simply provide a spare key to a close friend who can pop in to water your plants, make sure you ask well in advance. Pet kennels can fill up fast this time of year, so don’t procrastinate making that reservation. If you do find a friend or relative to sign up for the task, make sure to create easy-to-follow directions to care for your pets and plants while you are away.
Hit the gym a little harder
If you want to feel confident and fabulous in your beach bod while on your sunny escape, you are going to have to put in some time. Whether you are an aerobics buff or weight lifter extraordinaire, consider boosting the level of those physical activities to promote noticeable results. Don’t overdo it, of course, as you don’t want to injure yourself before heading out.
Pack light with some warmer essentials
Be selective when choosing your wardrobe for the trip. You will naturally want to take everything but the kitchen sink, but it is possible to narrow down your selections to a few key items based on your itinerary. Pack pieces that can be mixed and matched. Consider packing a hat and light sweater to keep you warm in case temperatures drop in the evenings.
Lock in that tan or body sculpting session to perfect your look
