packing stresses me out. // i love lists.
purpose of the trip: will you be shopping? – pack less clothes, bring more money.
variables: how many days? how many nights? what type of event? weather- will i need a flat iron? is there a pool? special accessories? additional makeup- lipstick/eyeliner? special footwear – heels?
constants: travel outfit. pajamas. makeup. essential accessories. toothbrush. travel shampoo/conditioner (most hotels provide these, but i’m a bit picky sometimes) dry shampoo, basic footwear. phone & charger. camera & charger. everyday purse.
consider: the size of your suitcase. really all of this should fit into a carry-on bag, if you pack it correctly.
