Taking the time to consider what you’re taking while travelling. This is a sure way to enjoy your trip to the max, no worrying, no fretting (evne if you get the post-holiday blues!). Equally important is to reflect on the return back as to what worked and what you need to change next time (let’s face it, there’s always a next time!).
So here’s what I took travelling when I went to America for 25 days. I had to have clothes for both warm and cold weather.
|Straw hat||Purple long sleeve top||Black leggings||Toothpaste and brush||Foundation (half full)|
|Black shoes for day/night||Pink spotted tee||Black skirt||Dental floss||Clippers|
|Blush shoes for day||Grey gold leaf tee||Black-spotted scarf||Comb||Tweezers|
|Runners||White Creative logo tee||Black scarf||Packaway scissors||Nail board|
|Green Rains coat||Grey with brown shoulders tee||One set PJs||15 earbuds||Eyebrow pencil|
|Red Uniqlo down jacket||Navy blue tee||One set workout gear||Concealer||Deoderant|
|Navy Uniqlo light jacket||Black and white striped cami||Four socks||Menstrual cup||Olive oil|
|Navy cardigan||Nude cami||One beige bra||Makeup remover lotion||Cetaphil face lotion|
|Black long sleeve night top||Black jeans||Seven undies||Sunscreen (half full)||Hair wax|
|White button-down||Light green pants||Face wipes||Primer||Mascara|
I used everything on that list, marking it off as I went. Surprisingly, the Packaway scissors (which were a last-minute throw-in) came in super handy! I was very glad multiple times over that I’d packed them.
What I wished I’d packed:
Coming back from the trip I had very bad post-holiday blues, here are some things that helped me bounce back:
If you have an upcoming trip and need help to tackle packing – give me a call! I’d love to live vicariously through you 🙂
