California Travel Diary

Hi all!

I just got back from my spring break yesterday! I went to California for the first half with some friends & then spent the weekend in Flagstaff with Jacob.

Here is a little video documenting my trip! We went to Huntington Beach & I had never been to that part of California, but I loved it! This is also my first official YouTube video so I have no more excuses… right?

I apologize for any glitches or if you think it’s low quality… I’m new to this & learning along the way!

You can also find the video on my YouTube channel: Jaslyn Ravenscraft.

What are your spring break plans? Let me know in the comments!

Spring Break Packing List

Spring break is almost here! And if you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting for it since school started haha. I’ve made a brief packing list of things I bring for a beach vacation because I’ll be spending my break in California!

  • beach hat
  • ball cap
  • cover-up for swimsuit
  • sandals
  • flip flops
  • tennis shoes
  • beach bag
  • sunscreen
  • tanning oil
  • towel *It might be easier to just borrow a towel at the hotel or wherever you’re staying, but if you have enough room to pack one why not!
  • sunglasses
  • snacks
  • magazine/book
  • headphones

I hope this helps you guys figure out what to bring! What is your favorite way to spend time on the beach? Let me know in the comments!

Travel Carry-on Essentials

Traveling is a lot of fun, but there is so much to think about when packing. Not only do you have to think ahead for what you’ll need at your destination, but you have to think about what you’ll need to get there! Plane rides or cross country road trips; however you choose to travel you’ll need stuff for comfort & entertainment. Below I’ve outlined the things I can’t travel without:

  • Laptop/headphones/charger
  • magazine/book
  • healthy snacks
  • reusable water bottle
  • tissues
  • makeup remover
  • mints
  • comb/hair ties
  • medications
  • lotion
  • hand sanitizer
  • passport/boarding pass/wallet
  • chapstick

This list is a basic outline, so feel free to adjust it as needed. And don’t forget to check out air travel regulations because you may not be able to take certain things. Remember to enjoy your trip & don’t stress out about packing too much!

Happy traveling!

Staycation Recap

Today is the Monday-est Monday ever, if that’s even a thing! I’m still in vacation mode. But speaking of vacation, below are some pictures from my stay at Scottsdale Camelback Resort this weekend. I planned on taking the time to shoot more, but I honestly got so caught up in actually being present, that I forgot all about it. I think it’s important to take time to relax & not focus on work, & vacation is the perfect time to do that.

Possibly the best part of the whole weekend… the Cupcake ATM! I got a carrot cake cupcake & wow, devine. 10/10 would recommend making a stop if you’re ever in Scottsdale!
I got to catch up with a college friend! Long distance friendships are hard. 
I spent most of my time lying poolside trying not to burn! And also catching up on Vogue.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wish I had more to share, but honestly it felt good to not be so focused on finding the next ‘grammable thing & just be able to relax. Keep an eye out for more pics of my whereabouts…
