My Ultimate Packing List

I’ve had more mishaps than I can remember when it comes to packing for a trip. Off the top of my head, one trip where I realised the day we were flying home, I didn’t have a spare top. After deciding a bikini may have raised a few too many eyebrows at airport security, Dan kindly lent me one of his spare tops. Another trip, I didn’t pack enough underwear – thank goodness we were staying near some shops!

This was all way too stressful, so I’ve now perfected my checklist into basically everything I could ever possibly need whilst I’m away. Whether it be business, travel, beach or a few nights of jollies, I think I now have it covered and any potential wardrobe malfunctions averted. I’ve also popped into a PDF download too (Packing lists) if you would like to print off a copy feel free.
