Packing for a Weekend Getaway

Happy Wednesday! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I took a little weekend getaway trip to San Diego a few weeks ago. I can always count on Hotel Tonight, for getting the best rate, on such short notice. I love spontaneity, so this app is perfect for me. I booked my trip on Thursday and checked in that Friday. 

We ended up staying at The Andaz San Diego. Conveniently located in the Gaslamp District, The Andaz has a beautiful rooftop pool with the prettiest panoramic city views. The room came with a full bar, snacks and a KEURING, perfect for those morning pick me ups. I loved the artistic, sleek, trendy and modern vibes of this hotel.

Are you planning a last minute weekend getaway soon? Here are the 5 Must Haves for any weekend getaway. 

  1. Hat and Sunglasses
  2. Bathing Suit
  3. Phone Charger
  4. Moisturizer
  5. Flip flops/Comfortable shoes 

Til next time! XO

    I'm not planning any last minute getaways soon as my schedule seems to be full all the way until 2019, haha, but I do have plenty of getaways planned in there, some as short as just overnight stays and in those cases your packing suggestion is perfect as I can basically survive with a toothbrush and a charger, haha. Glad you had a good time in San Diego! That's one of the few places in US I haven't been to, but would love to go. Thomas xx

    Woooowwwww… I adore hotels with rooftop pools! Such a nice choice of a place to stay. Now I'm planning a getaway and even have booked a room in a hotel. I always write bring a loot of things to my trip/staycation. I can add nightwear, classy black dress, and some cosmetics to your list.

    Wow, sounds so adventurous! I bet you had a great time in San Diego. I stalk you on Instagram, haha! This is a great last minute list of what to take with when going on a trip like this one. But in my case, the list would be much longer 🙂 But I agree, comfortable shoes are the key! Gorgeous photos, by the way. The hotel looks wonderful. And the pool area – OMG! Fantastic!Cheers, Eliza |

    I've never used Hotel Tonight but it sounds like a wonderful place to book a last minute hotel with a great rate! We've been trying to plan a quick family trip before the summer comes to an end but I'm not sure if we can fit it in our schedule! The hotel looks so amazing! It's definitely inspiring me to just take off for the weekend! I love the outfit you're wearing sipping coffee. Simple yet elegant! My favorite! Manda |

    I have been wanting to stay there so BAD! They have the cutest hotel and gorgeous pool. Love what you packed for the weekend! I seriously need to get a hat like that I just haven't gotten around to it. Where is the hat from? I tried to click on something or find a link to it but wasn't able to! Hope you had a great weekend getaway

    This is my first time ever hearing of Hotel Tonight; I'll have to check that app out for my next hotel stay! I've never been to San Diego before, but Andaz San Diego seems like a great hotel to start with those gorgeous views. I'm glad you were able to enjoy a last minute trip!

    We had a lot of last minute decorations to add, and the staff was eager and willing to help. The food at NYC venues was amazing. They have extremely unique and tasty food. Also this place has great views and beautiful big rooms.
