Going on a sunny vacation with friends this spring break? Mexico? Punta Cana? Anywhere warm?? Here's a list of easy things to forget in the midst of the excitement, but they're essential:

1. Bathing suits

You better not forget these. Pack at least two or three because ya never know!

2. Hats

The sun can take a toll on your face and eyes-- bring a hat to give it a break and block the rays.

3. Sunscreen

If you're going somewhere near the equator, it's smart to invest in a more expensive sunscreen that is sure to protect your skin. After all, the sun is just ~stronger~ down there.

4. Face masks 

Skin care is super important on sunny vacations. Face masks are helpful, relaxing, and fun too!

5. Flip-flops

You'll need them for the beach, but probably won't want to wear them on the airplane...so don't forget to pack them in your suitcase!

6. Book

Bring a good book to let your mind wander while your laying on the beach or by the pool.

7. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are super easy to forget, but they're essential to any vacation in the sun! Don't be stuck squinting.

8. Chargers

Bring your regular wall charger and a portable one to bring to the beach and anywhere else you venture out to while traveling.

9. Aloe/Moisturizer 

If you burn even after putting on sunscreen, have some aloe to help yourself out a bit. Moisturizer is important too! Use it every morning and night if you can.

10. Beach bag

You'll definitely need something to carry all your stuff in to the beach! Designate a bag that you don't mind getting a little sandy.

11. Passport

Leaving the country? THIS. IS. IMPORTANT. I mean, you can't even leave the airport without it...

12. Makeup bag and wipes

Although you'll be relaxing and all natural in the sun during the day, the night time could get fun and fancy. Don't forget your make up bag so you can do yourself up and the wipes to take it all of later when you hit the sheets.

13. Lip care products

Chapstick is crucial (with SPF of course)! Keep your lips healthy and happy.

14. Towel

Sometimes it's just nice to have your own beach towel if you have room in your suitcase!

15. Medicine 

Sickness is super common on vacation-- especially if you're in a new country or on a different time zone. Advil is crucial and hangovers are real.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
