Be right back!

I am a huge fan of Christmas. In our family, it's a tradition that we open our Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve. For Christmas this year, instead of doing gifts, we decided to take both of our parents on a vacation for the holiday. At this point in life, my parents would rather spend time with their kids and grand-kid than having a new sweater or a new pair of shoes.

We had everything set 6 months ago since a vacation for 9 people takes a bit of planning ahead. I am so looking forward to spending time with my loved ones and enjoying the warm weather. I love packing summer clothes when it's freezing outside =) Here is a snapshot of "what's in my bag" when I travel:





1. A bottle of Fiji water. Fiji water has always been my go-to for a thirst quencher.
2. My trusty iPad2. Having this gadget with me, the little one can play games and read books on the go.
3. A fashion magazine to read on the plane.
4. My wristlet which contains all my credit cards, my phone, sunglasses, gum and Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in rose (my current obsession!)


P.S: Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win three fabulous bangles. I will draw the winners when I get back from my vacation.

See you in a week!
Sydney

  15. I love your bag! A bag that is big enough to fit a bottle of water, magazine, and an iPad is perfect in my book. :)

  21. i'm excited to know where you're heading off to. Say Hawaii!!!! hahaha.

    So if you open presents on xmas eve, what do you do on xmas day? I think when i have a family, the rule is going to be either when it's midnight or the morning of xmas day. I'm anti opening presents on xmas eve. or mb open the stocking on xmas eve & the rest of the real presents on xmas day.

  22. I am addicted to fashion magazines on Zinio now (it's an app on the iPad). I hate carrying magazines even if I like flipping through them and the iPad holds 8 subscriptions now!

    I'm also obsessed with Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm - perfect, non-sticky sheer color!
