What I’m Packing…Bachelor Gulch

bachelor gulch

Today is a happy day.  Why you ask?  Well from beside it being another day where I get to wake up and be with all of you, today is especially happy because it’s the day before I leave for Bachelor Gulch.  That’s right.  Tomorrow I’ll be swishing down the ski hill, drinking hot toddys, and disconnecting from the world.  I. CANNOT. WAIT.  

But before I can enjoy happy hour on the mountain I have a few last minute boxes to check off my list.  Namely, packing.  Packing for a ski trip is always tough as there’s so much gear I need to take and since I’m an over-packer in general I always end up with about 3 checked bags.  Though truth be told I’ve learned to embrace my over-packing spirit and just roll with it.  So my Loves, here is what you’ll find in 1 of my 3 suitcases.  truly, MKR

  1. My new favorite Harding Lane throwback ski hat.  So cozy and warm, plus I love the old school vibe.  I’m VERY casual on the hill. 
  2. Red’s sunnies.  Bold and fun, plus polarized which is a necessity for spring skiing.
  3. Flask to aid in chair lift warmth.
  4. Bobbi Brown beach body oil.  Yes it’s called beach body oil, but it’s the most amazing for dry skin.  Plus I love the smell of beach and suntan lotion no matter what the weather.
  5. Buddha necklace, because I need a little sparkle and shine.
  6. Madewell muscle tee.  The perfect casual throw on.
  7. The Goldfinch to read by the fire.
  8. Laceless sneaks.  The easiest thing to slip on after being in ski boots all day.
  9. Rifle Paper Travel Journal to capture the memories.
  10. Hot Toddy.  No explanation needed.
  11. Rebecca Minkoff for Frends headphones.  These come with interchangeable plates and a must for the plane and hill.
  12. Star sparkler wand to celebrate the Mr.’s birthday on Thursday!
  13. My signature pink lip.
  14. Bkr water bottle.  It’s all about hydration.

  1. I have been dying to stay at The Ritz Bachelor Gulch. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it, and of course I’ll be following along on your Instagram. Have a great trip and try to rest up! xx Laura

  2. I stayed there in early February and the resort is a DREAM! Beaver Creek is one of my favorite ski places, and staying at Bachelor Gulch just made it that much better. ENJOY! I’m super jealous. Their lobby is kind of my winter “happy place” :)
