Its that time of the year again - holidays! And just like everyone else I have my holidays too, but mine is to a Christian Festival for 2 weeks in England. None the less, I am super excited for my holiday even if it is in England still. But packing is still an essential and it is still a let down for me nearly every year.
Until now when I came up with a little guide for packing a suitcase for your 2 weeks wherever you are going.
- Black and White vest tops
- Pretty floral tops
- A Skirt
- A Dress
- A shirt or Cardigan (wear as a pull over)
- Pairs of Jeans (wear them again and again)
- Tracksuit bottoms (Stay Fit)
- pair of Pyjamas
- Hoodies or Jumpers (even if you are going somewhere hot you might still need them)
- Waterproof Coat (Again, you might need it where ever you are going)
- Bathing Suits (or one if you are going somewhere cooler)
- Flip Flops (Rubber and Washable)
- Wellies (festivals and wet places only)
- Trainers (Running and everyday)
- Shampoo and Conditioner (or my No Poo substitutes)
- Shower Gel
- Tooth paste and Tooth Brush
- Everyday Perfume
- Shaver and Shaving foam (2 weeks is a long time)
- Sun Cream (SPF 15+)
- A Face Cream
- Body Moisturizer
- Face Wash
- A Belt
- Great pairs of earrings
- Notebook and Pen
- Sleeping Bag
- Blow Up Mattress
- TOOTH BRUSH
Once you have everything you will need the tricky bit of cramming it into your suit case will commence if it hasn't already.
I always put my toiletires into a little bag and put them in first as they are quite often the heaviest.
I start out with the bigger stuff like coats, hoodies, shoes and jeans. I roll them up as small as I can. And really tightly push them into corners. Shoes I put into a plastic bag and try to put into the top lid part of my suit case.
Then I do the same with my tops and t-shirts. Roll them up and fit them into the other gaps.
The last few things I put in is the underwear as it is the smallest and can fit into the smallest gaps.
Then I go for the others, the essentials but not necessitates like the belts and earrings.
If you are taking any jewelry, flatten them out onto a scarf and roll up. This will keep them from getting tangled up and knotty while you are traveling.
Next Step: Travelling.
