Why Camp When You Can Glamp?

June 28

If the idea of camping makes you think of mosquito bites, sunburns, and family fights trying to pitch a tent you’re not alone. Camping may not be for everyone but with a few essentials and slight upgrades you can glamp (glamorous camping) comfortably. We put together a list to help you save time so you can pack your glamping go-to bag quickly and get ready to hit the beach, park, or patio of your favourite re-opened restaurant.


Who doesn’t love a hands-free option to carry all your stuff? Show off your maple leaf pride just in time for the long weekend with a cute Canadian drawstring bag from Hudson’s Bay.

Don’t know how to pack light? Don’t worry about it. A simple tote from Hudson’s Bay is all you need to hold all your stuff. And we mean all your stuff.


Sephora goodies, galore! Tans are great but may we suggest some sunscreen? Even if you manage to score a comfy seat in the shade, you still need an SPF. Reach for a lightweight, hydrating, silky sunscreen and remember to reapply. Trust us, your skin will thank you.

Okay so, it’s possible you might break a nail while on your glamping adventure but don’t fret. A glass nail file is all you need to touch up your mani between spa appointments. The benefits of glass files are huge not to mention they last forever! And who wouldn’t want a cute floral set?!

Protect and polish your pout. Stay fabulous and selfie-ready with a bright lip stain that offers the benefits of a balm with pop of colour that screams summer.

Got a little sweaty? It happens. Wipe the day away and freshen up with a soothing coconut water wipe. This purse pack is just what you need to stay fresh and smell great.


How do you make the great outdoors even greater? Cocktails. That’s right. Shake up a martini, keep the wine cool, and sip slowly on your favourite adult beverages. Be an environmentally friendly glamper with reusable straws from House of Knives. Snag an adjustable ready-to-go set (meaning it’s the perfect size no matter what chic glass you’re sipping from) that packs down into a compact case—perfect for on the go!

No one wants a warm drink. Keep those bevvies cold with their own chic cooler bag from Hudson’s Bay. As a bonus, the more you drink, the lighter it is to carry.

No matter where you’re spending your long weekend and how adventurous you get, we know you’ll be prepared and stylish, from start to finish.
