Travel Packing Tips!

After all the stress and excitement of searching and booking your much needed vacation you realize that you have to pack your suitcase. You spend ages wondering what is the weather is like and what fab outfits you should pack. Then reality hits you- you have to pack light because airlines nowadays charge an arm and a leg for luggage. So you have to pack everything you want to bring in your suitcase and make sure it’s not over the weight limit because you’re not trying to pay all those extra fees that those pesky airlines want to charge.

Here are some packing tips to make this stressful experience a little easier.

Roll your clothes!

Rolling your clothes will save up so much space in your suitcase rather than just folding it.
Layer your clothing!
Try to just bring one or two jackets on your trip. Jackets will take up space in your suitcase and it really helps to bring more blouses and tops and then layer with a jacket.

Take advantage of travel friendly products!

Every store has a travel product aisle. I love buying those fun-sized face washes, toothpaste, hair conditioners and shampoos and they are much more practical than packing your big shampoo and conditioner that is in your shower. When it comes to makeup there are also travel sized products. For instance, if you want to save space in your makeup bag you can buy tiny makeup palettes. Yes, they exist.

I saw this little guy while shopping at Ulta a couple weeks ago. It is Smashbox’s Mini Full Exposure Palette. Its super tiny-about the size of a business card and it has 8 neutral shades. 4 shimmers and 4 mattes. This palette is amazing and super functional. It saves sooo much space in your makeup bag.

Bring multipurpose products!

If you want to save space in your suitcase bring products that have more than one purpose. For instance, I always make sure to bring my sweet almond oil with me because I can use it for so many things. I can use it to remove my makeup, facial moisturizer and body moisturizer. You could also bring a makeup palette that contains eyeshadows ,bronzer and blush and that saves up so much space.

Bring versatile clothing items!

Do you really need to bring pairs of pink, red and blue heels? It’s best to bring shoes that will match with most of your outfits so neutrals are your best bet like nude or black. A pair of nude or black heels, flats and sandals- you’re good to go.

Packing is so hard to do because you’re visualizing yourself wearing so many different outfits and you want to be prepared for various different occasions. It’s essential that when you’re packing your clothes you know what you’re going to pair everything with and that way you’ll be sure of what to bring.
 I hope these tips helped you.
