Bethenny’s Favorite Finds: Weekend Getaway Essentials

Packing for a weekend trip can be tough because you’ll feel like you need to bring everything with you. Trust me, you don’t. When I get away for the weekend, I try to bring as little as possible so that I have less to worry about. This is my time for myself to relax, not to think about all the other noise.

Here are some of my favorite things to bring on a weekend getaway:

Weekend Bag

I have a weekend bag that I use for all short trips. It’s the perfect size to carry all my necessities and nothing more. There’s no need for a bulky suitcase getting in the way when you won’t be gone long.


Getting lost in a book is the perfect way to unwind on vacation. This is your time to finally get to those books you’ve been meaning to read.

Comfortable Shoes

Comfort is key when it comes to a vacation. You want comfortable shoes that you can slip on and off in a split second, for anything that comes up. What you don’t want is to spend this time breaking in new shoes and risk getting blisters that will ruin your trip.


I keep my makeup pretty minimal during vacation. When I want to look like I made an effort, a little color on the lips will do the trick. Of course, I have no problem going all-natural either when I’m on vacation. Embrace the #zerofucks life.
