Packing List

IMG_2725.jpg

This week is the first trip of 2018 and I wanted to share my travel tips and tricks. There are a few rules I live by when it comes to globe-trotting.

The first being carry-on! I use a 20-liter backpack, and it is perfect. Although it is not the most stylish accessory, it is reliable. No matter if you are traveling for a weekend, or a couple weeks, odds are you can manage with a carry-on. The key is organization!

Which leads me to my next tip, pack similar clothing colors. Plan and organize your outfits in advance. It makes life much easier when you want to wake up in your destination. Without a second thought, you can put a sensible ensemble together, and focus your energy on more important things like sightseeing, food, and entertainment.

My third tip and maybe an odd one is to plan your showers. If you know your hygiene routine and if you can foresee the next 48-72 hours easily. Then it is easier to know what toiletries to bring and exactly how much of each. Sometimes, it might even be worth it to go to your favorite soap stores, I like Lush or Aveda and pick up some samples.

Lastly, my personal indulgence is travel entertainment. In an effort to keep things lightweight, I will opt for a journal, an agenda, and Bluetooth headphones. In my journal, I have dedicated a page to my favorite Italian phrases and words that may come in handy during our trip. Thus I am prepared to use the local language, and feel a little more confident playing my donna all’estero role.

Until next week,

Arrivederci!

Samuji Backpack

One of my favorite things to watch on Youtube is a “What’s in my bag” video. A purse is an interesting concept and the things which people carry on a regular basis is fascinating. So today, I am sharing what’s in my bag!

To start, I have a Samuji bag. I had been stalking this item for months and when I found the best price online it was time to make the investment. I have been carrying it every day since!

The bag is perfect for city life whilst adding a stylish leather detail to every outfit. Two of my favorite things are street style and leather goods, so this bag is the perfect representation of both.

 I have always taken the boy scout approach regarding the contents of my bag. For those of you that don’t know, the philosophy is simple” always be prepared”. Inside you can frequently find things I use on a daily basis whilst incorporating subtle details of my personality.

So in a moment of writing inspiration or boredom, I keep pen and paper on my person at all times. Most importantly this includes my personal agenda. I have been using this exact agenda for half a decade now and do not go anywhere without it. Over the course of a year, I decorate the pages, adding personal details from that time of my life. These agendas are some of my most cherished possessions.

A new favorite in my bag these days is the memo bottle. I think the flat design is a fantastic space saver, especially considering the structure of my personal bag. The brand itself has a great mission and holds an honest quality check to their products.

Lastly, this wallet is an absolute dream. The size is perfect since Nordic countries lean towards a card friendly lifestyle and cash just isn’t very popular here. Plus, the eel skin is so smooth and pretty! I found the adorable tiny pin detail at a local thrift store for just 20¢!

These are just a few of the special little items I carry on a regular basis. Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together!

Until next Friday,
