My Ultimate Packing List

Life before my ultimate packing list meant I had more mishaps than I can remember when it came to packing for a trip. Off the top of my head, one trip where I realised I didn’t have a spare top. Unfortunately, this was the day we were flying home. Dan thankfully had packed a spare top, which saved me the embarrassment of flying home in a bikini.  Another trip, I didn’t pack enough underwear. All I can say is thank goodness we were staying near some shops!

All this packing chaos was all way too stressful. So, now I’ve now perfected my checklist into basically everything I could ever possibly need whilst I’m away. Whether it be for business, travel, beach or a few nights of jollies. I think I now have it covered and any potential wardrobe malfunction is averted. I’ve also popped it into a PDF download too. If you would like to print off a copy, feel free.
