        I like this thread!! I've learned quite a few things!

         

        I like the shoe organizer idea, although I usually have pouches for everything so they usually stay in there throughout the whole trip. Will definitely pack the extension cord! Never thought of that!! And who knew about the chalk?! Pretty cool!

         

        Someone mentioned it previously but when snorkeling or kayaking I always wear this Coolmax long sleeve shirt; it's extremely lightweight and very breathable. It dries in like 15 minutes in the sun or something and even when it's wet it doesn't weigh you down. Saves on the sunscreen and the hassle of reapplying. It's always on the top of my list to pack when heading to sunny destinations so I end up needing less sunscreen, which means less to pack. 

         

        For those of you who forget, or don't want to pack extra detergent, shampoo works well to rinse out your bathing suit/bikini and your suit ends up smelling nice too when it dries. :) If you don't want to use the shampoo you brought, use the resort shampoo - and they replenish if you ask so you don't have to worry about running out. That's what I always do.

         

         

        When it's really hot, a bikini top works better than a bra too. And since you're in a tropical destination, it's quite appropriate too! 

         

        In addition, along with the items people have mentioned, these items are always on my packing list as I hate being without them: 

        • Emergen-C (or the Target brand) - it helps your immune system and keeps you energized. In hot water seems to taste better than in cold; my fiance adds honey/splenda. 
        • Wet wipes - I prefer to use these over hand-sanitizers as I don't feel like my hands are actually clean with sanitizers. 
        • Nail file
        • Nail clipper
        • Tweezer

         

        As for the body powders, Urban Decay also has one out; has anyone tried that one? I definitely will have to get one of these powders for myself and especially for my fiance who will be wearing a suit!

          So my bridal party had my bachelorette party for me on Saturday and a part of it happened to be a fantasia party :-D i was thrilled and before the lady could even begin her presentation i was asking her about the powder. She had some and poured a glass of water and put the powder in it...it was amazing. The powder just sat on the surface and when you put the powder on your finger and dipped it in a glass of water your finger comes out DRY! Needless to say i bought some LOL This stuff really works. The lady was super cute too when i told her i was getting married in Punta Cana she even gave me this little travel size version to put in my purse :) :)

            hey ladies,

             

            curious about this powder.  does it have a scent?  I'm having a custom perfume made and I would hate for it to interfere with my perfume.

             

            Also, I know that there are a ton of mosquitos in the bahamas so an unscented bug spray is on my packing list.  anyone know of a good one?  again, hoping for unscented


            Forever could never be long enough for me to feel like i've had long enough with you
