Travel Essentials: EUROPE edition!

You guys the time is here….I’m going to EUROPE!  WEEEEEEEEEEEE! I simply cannot wait.  I’m the weirdo that starts packing a good week before my trip, especially because I will be gone for a few weeks and I want to be prepared.  It’s the tricky balance of not over packing but also having everything you need to last you for a month.  Yes, I realize I’m not going somewhere where there won’t be options to buy too, but I just like having my stuff all ready to go so I don’t have to waste time picking up supplies when I should be drinking  coffee and eating gelato…..ya feel me?!

SO definitely with my wardrobe I start prepping at least a week ahead of time so that if I need to pick anything up from the store, I won’t be rushed.  I usually have a big pile of clothes on my chair for a week and I keep on adding things to it so that when it’s the night before the trip I can essentially throw everything into my suitcase!  YAY!


I’m going to warn you: THIS IS A LONG VIDEO….. I had NO IDEA, I was just chatting away like you were sitting with me in my living room, and I wanted to share with you all of the things I was bringing.  It’s all the little random things that you pack that TOTALLY make such a big difference.  My hope with this video is perhaps when you are traveling you can get some great ideas of how to pack for your next big trip…OR you can get some more insight into things I love that have nothing to do with just makeup (like my favorite deodorant, lip balm, floss, sunglasses, etc!)  Of course, I have lots of good bits about shampoos, conditioners, razors, makeup, creams, self tanners, etc too!  SO all in all, this is exactly what is going with me to Europe and goes with me on a lot of my trips!  Not to mention I’ve also invested in a European blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, etc.  (I suggest if you travel there a lot it’s such a better option then the risk you take of ruining your appliances or your hair with the wrong plugs/voltage!)

SO, grab a glass of wine, cup of coffee, or huge bowl of ice cream, and check this out!  I hope you enjoy, and follow my journey along the way via Instagram!  It’s going to be an amazing trip and I can’t wait to share it all with you!  Thanks for following along, and I hope you are having the best summer everrrrrrrr!
