Kenny and I are going on a mini vacation to celebrate making it through our first year of marriage! We are going to be spending 3 days in Traverse City, MI. This is going to be our first time spending the night away from Baby K. It definitely hasn’t hit me yet, and I’m not sure how I’m going to handle it to be honest. Thank God for Face Time! Anyway, I thought that I would share a few quick packing tips with you guys.
Five Tips For Successful Packing:
1. Make a List
Make a list the week prior to your vacation. Write down anything that you think you might want to bring including toiletries and travel necessities.
2.Plan Your Outfits:
To help save space, plan out your outfits. Try to choose outfits which the individual pieces can be mixed and matched with one another. Also, try to choose shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits. Shoes are bulky and awkward, and they tend to take up a lot of space.
3. Only Pack Essential Make-Up
Let’s face it, make up can take up a ton of space while packing! Try to take only the essentials. Bring eyeshadow palettes that allow you to create multiple makeup looks for the outfits that you have previously chosen. Don’t bring 234,963 individual eyeshadows, blushes, etc. This will only take up more space and cause clutter.
4. Throw List Away
5. Dump the Entire Contents of Your Closet in Your Travel Bag.. Including the sweet little baby you are leaving behind. (Insert crying emoji here)
BONUS TIP: POUR YOURSELF A GLASS OF WINE OR THREE
