3 Tips to Packing for your Trip

Posted by in Life, Multitasking 01 Jul 2015

The thought of travelling overseas for work or holiday always creates an excitement no matter how many times we’ve travelled. Ok, maybe I’m speaking for myself and I really, really love travelling. But I don’t really care much about is the packing and unpacking and here I know all you ladies out there will totally get it – the moisturiser, eye cream, sunblock, concealer, face powder, blusher, eye shadow, shampoo, conditioner, ear rings, necklace…and the list goes on and on. And it’s not just packing at home before you leave; there’s unpacking when you reach your destination, then repacking before you depart for home and unpacking again once back home. Tired already?? So here are my TOP THREE TIPS to PACKING for the BUSY WOMAN.


And it’s not just packing at home before you leave; there’s unpacking when you reach your destination, then repacking before you depart for home and unpacking again once back home.

TIP 1: I absolutely love all the free make-up pouches I get when I buy cosmetics or body-care products. I got these two pouches from Body Shop last year and they’re perfect as with zippers on both sides of the case, all my items like powder, eye shadow, moisturiser etc. stay put, are easily accessible and best of all, I don’t need to unpack!! I just open the case and I can see everything. There are some things that I just keep in there permanently like a nail file, nail clipper, cotton buds, toothpicks, a travel toothbrush and comb. I use other pouches to put my lipsticks and tissues, which I then throw into my handbag.

TIP 2: A hard-case container is an absolute lifesaver for jewellery. And everyone knows I’m a Tupperware queen (that’s another blog) and I love this blue travel case. I keep all my favourite necklaces in there and they stay that way even when I’m back home. That way, every time I travel, I just put that whole case in my suitcase – no drama! And I always have choices and not stuck with one or two items even when I’m travelling. And you will see in my picture the tiny organza pouches that I save from all the jewellery I purchase. I put all my earrings and pendants in these pouches so they’re easily retrievable and best of all, they don’t get damaged as they’re individually packed!


When I get back from my holiday, all the pouches and zip-log bags go into my empty suitcase so that when it’s time for my next trip, there’s no hunting around for pouches and zip-log bags.

TIP 3: Zip-log – what’s not to love about them????   They were not just made for sandwiches you know. I use them to pack liquid stuff like my essential oils, cough syrup (yes this trip I’ve had a bad bout), my favourite, emu oil (yes I moisturise with emu oil). No fear of any of these liquids staining my clothes if they seep from the bottle. Because they’re see-though bags, you will have a hassle-free trip as you can easily spot the item you want.

BONUS TIP: When I get back from my holiday, all the pouches and zip-log bags go into my empty suitcase so that when it’s time for my next trip, there’s no hunting around for pouches and zip-log bags.
