Recently I posted my June obsessions and I had a few girls reach out wondering why I always buy 2-3 of my favorite cosmetics. No, I’m not crazy, (well sometimes ;)) I am just always ready! Ready to go that is, That’s why.
For the most part I stay packed. I have a carry on, a toiletry bag, and a cosmetic bag that stays packed at all times. So my cosmetic bags are always packed. That’s why I buy 3 typically, to save me the stress of packing! I hate packing! One for my house, one for my second house, and one in my travel bag ready to go.
We travel a lot, we operate out of multiple homes, and we are always on the go, so I’ve learned a few easy tips that make it super easy and less stressful to pack last minute.
With that said I wanted to share a few of my favorite packing secrets and a favorite item that makes traveling so easy for what seems our ever changing impromptu life on the go.
Travel Tip #1: STAY PACKED!
Now I’m your typical girl, indecisive and never know what I want to wear. This can really add to the stress of packing that’s why these little 3 tips really do go a long way when packing.
My favorite Travel Buddy:
You know a girl doest leave home without her accessories! 😉 I went to four countries back to back overseas for a WEEK, only packed in a small roller, and I STILL traveled with my accessory buddy … loaded with my accessories. You know just in case. 😉
This little guy is awesome! It was actually in my prize package for placing Runner Up to Mrs. America in 2016. It has all these individual compartments so your accessories can stay organized and untangled! It also fits well in a carry on. This is the “weekender” version I have, they have a whole line of travel cases. This is my favorite, it also comes in a wide range of different colors and fabrics now.
This little friend of mine doesn’t stay packed, but it helps me stay organized when I do have to throw in all sorts of last minute accessories in my carry on or checked bag.
So when July comes and if I find a new obsession for that month, rest assured you know I have 3 just because these small little things make my life on the go, just a little easier. Now if my boys didn’t grow so quickly I would have one for them as well, but they do have a toiletry bag! 😉
Today I pulled out all 3 of these items to pack for a Mrs. America State Pageant I will be judging, I literally grabbed these 3, threw in a yoga set, some PJ’s, 2 dresses, and DONE! That easy!
I hope these few tips and this little travel buddy of mine can make your next packing adventure just a little less stressful.
Happy Thursday Mom Queens!
