Best Summer Packing Tips Ever

Packing when going away for the holidays is never an easy task. While the amount of luggage you need bring depends on many factors, keep in mind that you’re going away to have fun and relax, so pack only things you really need. Furthermore, the lighter you pack, the easier it will be to get around and enjoy yourself.

Make sure you only bring essentials by picking a smaller suitcase than you would normally use. This way, you will limit the available space and you will have to decide what’s really important for your holiday. When packing your things, try to plan out your stay, and put what you will use last at the bottom. That will keep your suitcase tightly packed.

Which Shoes Do You Really Need to Take?

A girl’s worst nightmare just might be being limited to a few pairs of shoes. Pick out a few of your favourites and make sure you know which pairs will be useful and which to leave home. You won’t need a pair for each occasion on your holiday; try to combine your outfit with only a few pairs. Take into account how many days you’ll stay and where you plan to go – that should help you pick out the shoes to take with you.

You cannot leave for summer holiday without a swimsuit, but choosing only one or two can be problematic. It’s often a good idea to pick out at least two sets of swimwear, and clean one while you’re using the other. Think along the lines of comfort and bring only swimsuits you feel comfortable in. That way, you can have fun, relax and enjoy the beach to the fullest.

Wear Some Clothes More Than Once

If you’re going to think that one outfit can only be worn once, then you might as well prepare an extra suitcase. You need to get creative when it comes to clothes, otherwise, you might as well take your whole wardrobe. Floral tops, Sivana Spirit tunic dresses and harem-style pants are always a good choice. Plan an outfit for traveling to and from your destination, that should free-up some space in your luggage. If there’s a place where you can wash your clothes, you can make your suitcase even lighter, as you will be able to clean and reuse some of your clothing.

Skincare Is Essential

Just because you’re going away on holiday, doesn’t mean you should neglect your skincare regimen. However, you will have to make some alterations to it and adjust your skincare products if you want to both take care of yourself and pack light. Make sure that you make a list of which products you will need, and choose only the ones you really need. Keep in mind that you’re on a holiday to have fun, not to spend it in front of a mirror.

The summer holidays are all about having fun and enjoying yourself to the fullest. The best way to do so is to pack as lightly as possible. You definitely don’t want to drag a lot of your luggage around with you. The less you have in your suitcase, the more you can focus on having fun and creating wonderful memories of your amazing holiday getaway.

 

Milk Carton/Juice Sandwich/Snack Container

060b200360ebbe504b6962c5131875f6I have always tried my best to recycle/up-cycle in my families lives. I have always felt bad throwing these container from milk/juice out. (If you do please cut them down and recycle them). I came across this idea and wanted to share it with you. Follow the diagram above and cut with an exact o knife – and please be careful.If the knife slips (which it will want to do) there could be a nasty cut. Fold over and attack a velcro dot as shown. Makes a nice little snack/sandwich container.

Blueberry Tid-Bits

Here are a few nuggets of information to help you make the most of this glorious fruit.
• Blueberries belong to the same family as the wild huckleberry or azalea.
• The powdery gray-blue bloom on the sur­face of the skin helps the small berry retain its moisture after harvest.
• Blueberries do not ripen further after they’re picked.
•Blueberries aren’t as perishable as other berries and will keep about a week if handled properly. Place them in a plastic container and refrigerate as soon as possi­ble. Don’t wash berries until you’re ready to use them. (Added moisture will hasten growth of mold.)
•Washing blueberries before freezing results in toughening of their skin.
• A pint of blueberries serves four people generously.
