I'm linking up with Lena of Mom2MemphisAndRuby to bring you my incredibly superficial list of ten things that I'd need with me if I were stranded on an island. And by "stranded on an island", I mean staying at a resort for a few days on a beautiful tropical island with the Hubs, while the kids are being happily taken care of by their Grammy. ;)

Stranded on an Island

1.  A bright little swimsuit, for lounging around in the sun;
2.  A cute pair of sandals that I can easily slide in and out of, for all of those dips into the ocean;
3.  A pretty little sundress, for going out to dinner;
4.  A fabulous pair of wedges to go with the sundress and to show off my tanned legs (from all that basking in the sun);
5.  Sunglasses, for the obvious reasons; ;)
6.  Mascara, because this mama needs mascara, always;
7.  A little bit of easy reading;
8.  Aquafina... because it is the best bottled water ever.; =)
9.  Carmex. It keeps my lips from chapping and makes my lips look oh so shiny and pretty; and
10.  Last, but most certainly not least, sunscreen! To ward off sunburns and skin cancer and wrinkles! =)

What would you bring with you on a deserted island . . . or a tropical getaway, if you interpret the question the way I did? ;)

Cute post :) Definitely sunscreen, sunglasses and chapstick would be at the top of the list. Throw in a few adult cocktails and it would be a perfect tropical getaway. Heather

Sunscreen...that didn't make my list..but it should have..I would fry! Diet coke and chocolate were just too important!

I would definitely need sunblock, a floppy hat, oversized sunnies, a maillot, a good book and lipgloss with SPF!

Well you definitely are thinking appropriately if you are stranded on an island. Water, sunblock...I am impressed!

Hmmm, as a mom to teen girls, I would not use "stranded" for being left alone on an island - more like "blissfully swept away" :P

Very good read, too.

so i decided not to read the rest of the Hunger games. but everytime i see the other books i want to. hmmm.

oh yeah, wedges will help you get around real comfortably on a deserted island. ; )

and i love all your picks! you are so fun.

I just bought a very similar bathing suit in pale blue- it's my first one piece in over a decade but it's flirty and fun! We share the same fave mascara but I'm going to have to disagree with you and say that Fiji makes the best water-albeit a bit expensive!

Emily said...

ha ha! AWesome things for a "stranded" emergency. Love it!

FashionCherry said...

such a nice fashion mix - these are certainly things I would to take with me if I was on a sunny beach holiday!


The Closet Shopper said...

Ashley @ mommy wants to blog said...

Punctuation Mark said...

oomph. said...

i'd say that's a pretty good list! i'd need some kind of sustenance, too...chocolate? wine? lol.

Great list! I would definitely have to have sunscreen on my list (only SPF 50).
