Hi beautiful faces,
Today I am going to show you (by the power of video!) how I have packed for my 2 week holiday in just a carry-on case.
I used to travel all the over the country quite a lot, so I got used to packing light. In fact, when I first stayed with P for the weekend he was shocked at how small my ‘luggage’ was….. I just had one of my biggest shoulder bags stuffed full.
Epic… I know.
So remember Research, Plan Your Outfits, Save Space and Pack Smart.
Make your clothes work hard. Choose pieces that you can repeatedly wear (and wash) with other things so you don’t feel like a cartoon character (wearing the same thing over and over).
Wear your chunky knit & jeans on the plane. You can always take them off when you take off, and put them back on again when you land. No fuss.
Use socks and knickers to fill every nook and cranny in your case.
Make decanting a habit. Don’t take big tubes or pots of stuff when you can take a smaller amount in some tupperware, saving yourself loads of space and backache!
Wash on the road. Undies don’t take long to wash or dry, why take 14 when you can take 6? You can even wash them whilst you are having a shower… bonus.
