Recently I was lucky enough to get invited by SaltySouls to join their very first yoga and SUP retreat in Mallorca. This will be my first retreat experience and also my first time doing a collaboration – so naturally I am very, very excited! I am very much looking forward to joining a group of ladies and spend a whole week in the wonderful Saint Elms Castle with healthy food, yoga and SUP lessons, body treatments and probably also squeeze down a couple of glasses containing cold white wine in the evening under the stars.. okay, I am getting carried away but it does sound quite nice doesn’t it?
On an active retreat holiday you obviously want to look good. But when looking good = practical as well.. That’s where the magic happens (in my mind anyway). So what do you bring? EASY!
No. 1 – Ohoi!
Swimsuits are finally cool again and has been for a while. No more white buttocks and free-the-nipple situations when you get knocked over by a wave (we have all been there) or cliff jumping into the crystal clear waters of Santorini or where ever people are instagramming from this year.
No. 2 – Bubble Bun
These hairbands are great for sunkissed, salty hair fresh of the beach as they do not stick to your hair while it is wet and therefore does not damage your hair. Inspiration source – Beautiful greek girls.
No. 3 & 4 – Ready for Tree Pose?
Again we are back to looking (and feeling) good while being active. This powder pink yoga top and buttoms will complete your yoga look this late summer.
No. 5 – Cool as a Cucumber
Not only will you look as cool as a cucumber with this cap, you are also going to avoid sunburns in the hair partings, forehead and nose while SUP’ing, walking or doing other activities.
No. 6 – Linen Lover
Linin is cool people, even though it wrinkles. Wear it over you swimsuit, with your loose pants (see below) or with nothing underneath when preparing breakfast like Carrie in Alexandr Petrovsky’s kitchen (People actually do that right?).
No. 7 – Water up!
How genius is this foldable water bottle? Fits into any bag, is reusable and easy to clean. I can’t get my hands down.
No. 8 – Flip Flop Drop
Your feet will love you forever – seriously! These flip flops are the ultimate best ones ever made! They are so soft and you will never again get blisters in-between your toes. I need these in my life – ALWAYS.
No. 9 – Fancy Pantsy
For the summer nights with a colder breeze.. Or if you are in Sweden.. close to a lake.. participating in a war against mosquitoes.
No. 10 – Surfing Girl
I believe this was made for surfers to avoid chest rashes from the surfboard while surfing, but I bought mine in Bali to first of all, look like I was a cool female surfer, secondly to use while snorkelling, SUP’ing or just to wear swimming if my shoulders got a little burned. Mostly no. 1 to be honest.
No. 11 – Angel Hair, We Do Care!
This treatment is good for blonde hair that has seen a lot of sun and beach. It will remove some of the golden/yellow shine from the hair giving it a slightly colder look – I know I am a fan.
No. 12 – Pssst! Pssst!
My sister introduced me to this light, soft and moisturizing face mist from Bioderma with SPF 30. Pretty and very nice when you are sweating bullets.
