If you are planning a little vacation away and you don’t want to have to lug around a big bulky suitcase or pay to check in luggage, but you still want to have plenty to wear, then in this video I show you how to pack.

1. Basic packing tips for a carry-on:
Get the biggest size you can get away with
Go for soft case, not a hard case

2. Decant and minimize your skin care and makeup routine:
Two in one products are great

3. Pack smart: Roll up your clothing to maximize space, stuff socks and leggings etc into shoes.

But I you can use all these tips, but it you are packing too many clothes, these tips aren’t going to help much.

• What are you going to be doing while on vacation
• Check the weather forecast
• What do you love to wear
• Lightweight wash and wear items
• Pack mix and match items
• Wear your bulkiest items on the plane – jacket, boots etc

Lay everything out on the bed to see what you have, what you need and what is missing.
