How I pack for a trip

So I leave for Miami in a few days! I am so excited!
I decided to show you guys how I like to pack my suitcase, and the tips and tricks I use! I also made a really cute, fun travelling check list for when packing whether it’s a weekend trip, or a week vacation!
This also includes my carry-on must haves, or travel purse must-haves.
Some of favorite packing tips
  • Pack under garments in a laundry bag, then use laundry bag for dirty laundry at destination.
  • Lay out & plan outfits that way you don’t over pack or don’t bring a bunch of items you can’t wear together.
  • Use shoes & hair tools to separate clothing sections!
  • Pack your makeup bag tight so nothing breaks
  • Bring gum with you for plane.
  • Bring/buy healthy snacks for the trip.  Nothing worse than being starving and no food around.
  • Fully charge your technology the night before leaving.
Here is one of my favorite print-off Ultimate Packing Check-Lists:

Happy traveling!!!!!!

To 2017….


Hi everyone! This is my first post (bare with me!)

As a 21 year old college student, time often feels as if its flying by. With graduation quickly approaching, I have decided to start a travel blog working towards making my twenties (aka my selfish years) unforgettable. I will be using this blog to keep track of places I see, photos I take, and memories I make. I hope you all join me on this journey and make your twenties nothing less than extraordinary.
