Trip Make-up and Ideas on Packing

Query for you: Do you pack gentle, or do you try to shove the proverbial kitchen sink into your journey luggage or baggage?

I’m a notoriously dedicated over-packer (hey, I prefer to be ready), however reality be instructed…I normally don’t even use many of the issues I pack!

I’ve been excited about this for a pair days as a result of we’re occurring a brief, few-day journey to go to our household in Hawaii, however quite than stuffing my carry-on baggage to the max, this time I packed all my stuff right into a 1) Jansport backpack I’ve had since faculty and a couple of) my trusty Rick Steve’s shoulder bag (extra on this in a second).

The opposite day I instructed El Hub that I deliberate to do that new packing technique, and he straight up laughed! Then he mentioned, “Good luck with that.” 😐

The explanation I made a decision to strive the brand new method was as a result of I noticed that my common baggage bag, which is simply a normal soft-shell wheeled suitcase (carry-on dimension), weighed greater than the precise contents inside!

I don’t know why, however I’m so bothered by the concept of bags that weighs greater than my garments. It actually bugs me.

In comparison with my baggage, my previous Jansport backpack from faculty weighs nearly nothing, and it additionally suits my garments and my footwear.

Every thing else — my make-up, hair and pores and skin toiletries, digital gadgets — will go in the identical shoulder bag I’ve introduced with me on each journey over the previous decade, the Rick Steve’s shoulder bag. It’s not at all uber-fashionable, however it’s light-weight, has tons of pockets, and the shoulder pad is tremendous comfortable. Extremely, extremely advisable!

Nonetheless…understanding me, I’ll most likely find yourself transferring the whole lot into my baggage on the final minute. Haha.

Anywho, that’s all of the make-up I’m bringing with me within the image up on the high. I’m nonetheless rockin’ a comparatively minimalist make-up vibe…
