Camping In Style

One of my favourite things to do in the summer is to go camping with friends. But before you get out the maps and take a wrong turn or leave your tooth brush behind, here are some of the best spots to set up your tent and what girly goodies to pack.

Besides the obvious camping essentials—bug spray, flashlights and marshmallows—I recently discovered a few must-haves that truly saved my recent sleep in the woods. Hey, a girl can still gloss up while making smores around a camp fire, can’t she?

  1. I can’t imagine anyone dressing stylishly for camping, especially since you’ll get all dirty and sweaty, with no baths for at least a night.

  2. That’s where the wipes come in! :) And when did getting dirty have to do with being stylish?

  3. I tone it down when I go camping, but have to make a bit of an effort to still look cute, don’t want random unflattering pictures showing up on facebook!
