I'm lucky enough to be going on a fantastic trip next week, one which I'll share more details about later on this week as it's directly related to Bombshell Beauty. I'll be flying out of town for three days which means...I have to figure out what to pack.
Please tell me I'm not the only freak in the world who pre-packs. As in, pulls out her suitcase and decides what to take with her based on how much will fit into that case. Pre-9/11, packing for air travel was no big deal. There were no checked baggage fees or crazy restrictions on how much body wash one could bring on the flight. Air travel, now, is less than desirable.
I'm not a checked-baggage girl by nature because I've found the baggage carousel to be a magnet for screaming kids and enough heat/humidity to transform my hair from great to Gilda Radner in 30 seconds flat. So I will be cramming two days' worth of outfits/shoes/accessories/makeup/toiletries into my carry on. I realize that two days' worth of stuff doesn't sound like much. But this trip is a fashion thing. So of course I need a reserve outfit or two. So, pre-packing is essential. I leave next Wednesday. And will begin to pre-pack this evening. I can't wait. The planning of a trip is always at least 30% of the overall fun.
If you have any wonderful tips or tricks for how to jam 99% of my closet into a Delta Airlines regulated carry on bag, please let me know in the comments.
