Packed and Ready to Rock..

So I leave for the U.S and Mexico in a few days.. just a tad excited and already pretty much packed apart from the last minute add ins like my laptop (yes I will be working)..

I realised I really like to pack simple and light. I have a very rotatable wardrobe.. I use one pair of really comfy wedge heels that go with everything (daywear is my birkenstocks) and I use the same earrings to jazz up for evening as they work with all outfits (daywear is studs).



I have a couple of maxi dresses and kaftans that can be day or night and even my make up is just Watts Up, Mascara and Gloss.

My beach bag is the only casual bag I need all hols as it fits the whole families needs and then I have a clutch for evening.

I bought sonny angels as a little surprise for the kids to play with and of course we have the iPad for long journey videos etc.

Training kit I pack only two outfits and just wash often and the only other thing I am packing is some books that I cannot wait to read!!...

Of course it leaves me open for an excuse to shop but to be honest I would prefer to spend it reading whilst sunbathing or having fun on rides with the kids :)

What are your go to items for packing? Do you take everything from here so nothing left to chance or are you more my style?

  1. I wish I was more like you, but I pack everything but the kitchen sink! Seeing as you have so much free space, do you want to take me with you?! I hope you have the best time ever! Are you going to Disneyland?!

  2. So glad you heading off on a trip you certainly deserve it although I do wish it was work free it's important to detach to recharge & focus, but as a business owner it just isn't reality.
    I pack light & I'm an obsessive roller, I roll all my clothes to prevent creasing & save space. But with the kids I'm the reverse, I pack way more than I need for them just incase... Funny hey.

    Have a blast gorgeous drink many a cocktail pool / beach side & soak up the sun. Looking forward to hear all about it. xx
