Ski Adventure Essentials

Before I share my next adventure with you I wanted to say thank you to everyone who read and commented on my last post. I was very nervous sharing such a personal part of my life while so many political issues are making it difficult for others to share a similar experience. The number of positive and kind comments were incredible to read and I am so touched by each one =o) So many of you restored my faith in the world, thank you.  
 
Now, for where my next adventure is taking me —- Breckenridge, Colorado! In just a few days I will be skiing black diamonds in the Rocky Mountains. I can hardly wait to wake up to the fresh mountain air and hitting the slopes first thing in the morning. I have been to Breckenridge a few times as a kid and am excited to go back and see how the town looks now. While beginning to pack this weekend (I always pack almost a week before any trip) I wanted to share with you a few of my essentials I am bringing with. These flat lays were taken with my Olympus Pen E-PL 8 which was a blast to play around with and I have been learning all of the effects and functions. My new camera came just in time for this trip as an early birthday present. I will be celebrating the big 25 while I am up in the mountains and that means when I return I will be a quarter of a century. Yikes!!

Whenever I am in the mountains my skin suffers from the dry air, this time I am much more prepared and plan on bringing the following to help with the dryness:
 
        Teddies Organic Rose Water Spray – I have posted about this spray before and I can’t stop raving about it to anyone who will listen. Just one or two sprays of this rose water and I feel refreshed. It’s perfect for traveling, especially on long flights and I take it with me whenever I fly.
 
        Lush Ro’s Argan body conditioner – this was a Christmas gift from my sister, along with an assortment of lush products. It smells amazing and instantly hydrates my hands.  I feel like you can never go wrong with lush products
 
        Blush Bath bombs – Nothing beats a warm bath after a day of skiing. Thankfully the place we are staying at has a huge tub that I can’t wait to use since I don’t have one at home. I plan on soaking  in a warm bath a few times and these bath bombs will be the perfect touch.
 
        Philosophy Snow Angel Bath gel and Lotion– we haven’t had any snow in Chicago since December and I feel like the theme of these two bottles fit in more with the snowy mountains of Breckenridge. This trip I am checking a bag since my ski boots take up almost half my suitcase so I am not worried about the less than 4oz liquid rule.
 
        Asos beanie – this is my favorite winter accessory I own right now. The one fluffy pom trend didn’t suffice so I found a beanie with two =o) I had previously ordered one from Aldo but they were sold out and after searching around I found this one on Asos website and love it.

As I was laying everything out on my bed I noticed most of my winter wardrobe is either white or beige. I never realized my winter color palette was so light because I feel like wear dark colors the most. Here are a few of my favorites I am packing:
 
        Ski pants – yes I know, white ski pants. Am I crazy? How have these not gotten stained or ruined? I honestly don’t know but they are the most comfortable ski pants I’ve owned.
 
         Asos beanie – I do wear a helmet when I ski (it’s pink!) but I wanted to add this beanie back in because I just adore the two pompoms.
 
        Columbia socks – the warmest socks I own. I posted about them before my trip to Toronto and they have been a key wardrobe essential this winter.
 
        Oakley goggles – I’ve had these for a few years now and have no complaints. They also match my white pants.
 
        White long sleeve – this is one of the newer additions to my ski ensemble and yes it’s also white. Hopefully it will keep me warm.
 
        Sweater – this sweater will be perfect for the evenings when we are sitting around the fire. Our Airbnb has a wood burning fireplace that will be the ideal place to relax every night after a day of skiing.
Any recommendations in Breckenridge? Especially any food places to check out? I love anything food related =o)

*Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this post, I am sharing these products with you because I think they are amazing =o)

  1. i've never tried skiing before but i'm amazed at people who can do it, especially when they're doing it gracefully. and because it's done in a cold, winter environment, i'd love to try it some day. (also because winter is my second favorite season after autumn)
    i've heard of people saying how good rose water is but i've never really tried a rose water spray or anything like that. i'm also picky when it comes to rose products since i have sensitive nose and can't take extremely scented things. also, that Lush's argan body conditioner looks scrumptious hahaha too bad i can't get any lush products here.

    p.s: adorable beanie! i love it 😀

  4. Not sure if you've gone on your adventure yet, but have fun! I am so in love with that hat haha. It's too cute. There are definitely some essentials you need for skiing, so you don't freeze your arse off. I also like bringing lots of moisturizing skin care products with me. 🙂
