Not long ago, I recorded this video for Fashionchick Girls and I loved it so much, that I wanted to share these handy tips with you as well! We are in full vacay mood so in case you are struggling with packing your suitcase, let me help you out! The video is in Dutch but I will write a quick translation down below. Keep reading for 5 tips to help you pack:
1. Organize your Space
Everyone knows how annoying it is to dig in your suitcase, but not finding anything because it’s one big CHAOS. So here’s what I like to do: use one half of your suitcase for clothes, and the other half for accessories/ shoes/ beauty products. This way it’s much easier to find what you need. Extra tip: make sure to put the stuff that you’ll need first on top of your piles. After travelling you are so tired, you will be grateful for it.
2. Bye bye wrinkles
The worst thing of unpacking your suitcase: seeing your pretty clothes all wrinkled up. No iron to be seen? Try taking out the wrinkles by hanging them in the bathroom while showering, or use your hairdryer. The heat/ steam helps!
3. Prepare for your shopping impulses
Always pack a big cotton bag: it doesn’t take a lot of space and it’s ultra light, but it can carry a lot of your stuff in case you went shopping too much on vacation #ups #wevebeenthere
4. Use your suitcase space to the max
Fill your (hand)bags & shoes with your socks and undies in order to use as much of your space as possible.
5. Pack to Match
Choose fashion items which are easy to combine in many ways. This way you can always change up your look without having to carry a 50kg suitcase around.
Enjoy your holidays loves!
Lots of Love,
