Packing Advice Every Girl Must Know


I am going to Singapore this week and I am soooo excited. However, before I can immerse myself in the culture, browse the markets and relax by the pool I have to do the dreaded task... pack.
Don't freak out! I am here to help you. Packing can be a long, stressful process that involves a lot of decision making and compromise. But how would you feel if I told you it didn't have to be that way?
I want to share with you some of the things I have learnt that will not only help packing become a less stressful experience but to ensure you don't forget anything and have an incredible trip.

Make lists:

If you know me then you will know I love to make lists. Especially when it comes to packing. The list making strategy I use will make certain you remember everything you need. So what is my secret? Make lists well in advance.
Trying to sit down and remember everything you could possibly need all at once can be very overwhelming and often leads to you forgetting even the most obvious things (don't pretend like you haven't all left your pajamas behind at least once). That's why making a note of everything you use for about a week before you have to start packing will ensure you have everything. For example, at night time you can jot down the key things you used that night like toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, hair brush, deodorant, pajamas and moisturiser.

Plan Your Outfits:

I usually plan my outfits weeks in advance however, this isn't necessary. Although, it really helps if you plan your outfits rather than just packing random pieces. You should plan everything from what you will wear with what to when your can wear it. Of course you can change your plans when you arrive but at least you will have a safety net to fall back on and won't need to spend precious time in the morning deciding what to wear.

Check the Weather:

Possibly the worse thing that could happen is you don't pack for the weather. Imagine packing all your singlets and shorts and it being freezing cold! This is why you always need to check the weather before you leave so you can make informed decisions on what to pack.

Carry On:

Your carry on luggage is so important because it is all you have for the entirety of the flight. That's why you need to really think about what you will need to not only endure the flight but to actually enjoy it. To make it even easier for you my previous post covers all the carry on essentials you could ever need.

So there you have it. My advice that everyone needs to know before packing for a trip. Now wherever you're going I hope you have a fabulous trip, and if you're not going anywhere? Well you better get planning!

Lots of love,
