Tips For Packing Smart Part 1

As you may know, I’m starting my vacation next Friday and my boyfriend and I are doing a west coast roadtrip! Starting with Seattle, we will spend three nights there, then three nights in Portland where we are going to eat lots of donuts from Voodoo Donuts yeah!! Then,  we will take the road to San Francisco and we will make a stop in a small town on the way there. We are going to spend our last four days in San Francisco, I just can’t wait!!

I have been wanting to do a post on what to bring in your luggage for a two-week light travel for a while. I did a couple of backpack travel so I’m quite good at packing smart now! For part one I’ll start with what to bring on the plane,  here’s some of my tips!

What to bring on the plane:

First, for taking the plane, you have to dress comfortable. My best plane outfit include a nice pair of sporty legging, dark ones, black or dark grey. For the top, the best is layering. Start with a good looking but comfortable tank top, cause it can be hot during the landing and depending where’s your destination it can be hot outside too! Then as a second layer use one of your favourite long sleeves. For my part I have a black long sleeves henley shirt, it’ perfect! Always bring a nice scarf, this is a key items for travelling smart, on the flight you can use it as a blanket! During your trip you can use it as a blanket at the park, as a picnic tablecloth and of course when it’s a bit chilly!

On your feet depending the season, wear a pair of shoes or boots that are easy to remove for security check at the airport. During summer a nice pair of Birkenstock is the best! Now in your bag, use a good size tote and bring:

  1. Your favourite book (not too heavy)
  2. Earbuds for a movie or your music
  3. Your Ipad, Ipod, or whatever you have to listen to your music!
  4. Hand Sanitizer
  5. Light snacks; dry fruits, nuts, chocolate, granola bar.
  6. Bottles of water, you need to keep hydrate cause it’s really dry on the plane!!
  7. A rich face and hand cream and use it right before you board.
  8. A pair of comfy socks (cause it’s always freezing on the plane)
  9. A good size scarf
  10. Headache pills (just in case)
  11. Eye mask and a neck cushion

Packing For Sweden


I started to pack for Copenhagen, Stockholm and Paris this morning!! Oulalala so exciting but not that easy, as I have to packed intelligently for 17 days. Of course I have to leave some space as I want to SHOP!!!!! And thank god, we will be able to do some washing because we rented apartments, so it’s gonna feel like home.

My trick is too pick pieces that I can match together. Like the perfect blazer that you can wear with a pair of jeans, a fancy dress or shorts! Try to maximize the possibilities of each pieces! Dresses are a good pieces for traveling as you only have one piece to think of, more space for new stuffs!

Choosing shoes is hard too, I want to bring them all, but that would not be a good idea! So I have to choose, one pair of comfy runners because we are going to walk a lot. one pair of  great sandals, two pairs of sneakers like converse or vans and dressy shoes, that’s the harder part for me!

I have to leave you on that note today, as I’m leaving soon to the FFUN BBQ 2013. It’s a rooftop party, it’s our summer launch party, It’s my second party of the week-end, ayayay I think it will be a nice summer 🙂 Take care xxx
