Playa del Carmen 2020 Packing List

Playa del Carmen 2020 Packing List

I just got back from six days in Playa del Carmen and threw together everything that I packed for the trip in this post. This was my first time traveling with packing cubes (spoiler alert -> major game-changer) and a ton of amazing swimsuits for my curvy ladies.

Before I hit the airport last week I had two beauty treatments that I HAVE to share:

Luminous Tan at-home spray tan. This is my go-to mobile tanning service in the Bay Area. Claudia comes to your home to spray you down and could not make the process easier. She ALWAYS manages to make it work in my tiny studio apartment with a barking dog. Claudia sprayed me at 5 pm the night before my flight and I woke up with a PERFECT tan. Check out their Instagram page for more.

Eyelash Extensions at Artisan Eyelashes. This was a service that I was VERY nervous about. I have had eyelash extensions before and they DID NOT WORK. The lashes touched my glasses, did not look natural and caused a crusty allergy goop around my eyes. So I walked into Artisan Eyelashes with a very clear idea of what I wanted and they promised me that I would walk out with amazing, natural vacation lashes.

Here’s what they did:

They used a blend of Xtreme Lashes faux mink and faux mink Xwrap lashes to get that perfect natural look for a vacation. The regular faux mink lashes are soft and fluttery, while the Xwrap lashes are a little bolder— they are tapered so they’re wider at the bottom, giving a thicker, fuller look in the lash line (a subtle eyeliner effect). Both types are lightweight and gentle on your natural lashes. They used a “C” curl, which is the eyelash curler look, in a cat-eye shape, and they gave me a little bit of length (2mm longer than your longest natural– gives a nice mascara look).
Their lashes are 100% customizable, and they can adjust length, shape, curl, type of lash, etc. at any future visit. 10/10 I would 100% recommend these lashes. I am back from vacation and I still have an amazing natural lash!

I feel like I REALLY stepped up my packing game on this trip! Have you ever used packing cubes? They are a SERIOUS game changer! I managed to pack everything I needed in my carry-on suitcase. This NEVER happens!

Now let’s get to the greatest invention of our lifetime, the TOPTOTE leather hat clip. Designer Lindsay Albanese eliminates the need for a bulky hat box with a revolutionary clip that lets you carry your hat hands-free when you’re traveling. Simply attach the clip to your hat’s brim and then hook the carabiner ring onto your bag, carry-on, keychain or luggage tag for a carefree travel solution.

I have a real love-hate relationship with denim shorts. They are either ride up my ass, too tight or giving me an extreme camel toe…ya feel me?

For the Playa del Carmen 2020 Packing List, I searched high and low for the perfect curvy girl denim shorts! I packed the spurlge worthy AGOLDE parker shorts (full review on them here) in a size 30 in the swapmeet wash and the Madewell high-rise denim shorts in a size 29 in the malden wash.
