Happy Camper


desert morning

Camping seems to be a theme in my house these days. Last month I headed to the desert with some friends for an incredible Halloween celebration, and this past weekend, my roommate split the city to sleep beneath the skies in Big Sur.

I must admit, I hadn’t been on a proper outdoorsy trip in quite a few years so I was seriously lacking in the “gear” department. Roommate found herself in the same predicament. Luckily, we were both able to borrow the necessities needed, but of course, that didn’t stop me from dreaming up a fantasy packing list for next time…

Should you find yourself nature bound, here are some items to consider:

Cute animal print sleeping bags? Yes please. These make me want to ditch my duvet cover and camp in my bedroom every night.

Nothing is more “camp-y” than Pendleton- and a good travel mug is a must.

Utensils are also a smart idea.

I love this gorgeous set made from enamel coated steel. Not only are they durable, but the holes on the end make them super easy to hang from a ring and not lose.

I’m always made fun of for being overly prepared, but trust me, First Aid supplies are not a bad idea when venturing out into the unknown. Better safe than sorry.

Key to being the most popular camper?

Bring the best snacks.

S’mores are pretty foolproof.

Tip: use some bougie ingredients, and now you’ve impressed everyone with “gourmet” S’mores.

Last but certainly not least, a comfortable (and swank) tent.
