The Video | Packing for London

This week on my channel, apart from delving in my bag and sharing it with you guys, I have uploaded a video on what I packed for my five day trip to London. I find that sometimes this can be really difficult and you don't know where to start, especially when you need to pack to the bare minimum as you're going to be travelling on the train etc. So, if you'd rather go and watch the video then click here, but below, I'm going to go in to a bit of detail too. 

1. The first thing I do is make a list and as you can see from the picture, I sort of divide it in to sections and then think about the stuff that I'm going to need rather than what I'd like to take. 

2. Starting with the toiletries, I wrote down the staple things that I'd need to take and then hunt down to see if I had any smaller versions of what I'd need. It's all about fitting the smallest things in the bag. 

3. With makeup, I really don't like using my fingers or hands to apply products, so I do need to pack brushes, but I've tried to minimize what I need. I packed a foundation brush, powder brush, eyebrow brush, spoolie, contour brush, blusher brush. No need for eyeshadow brushes as I'm taking a cream eyeshadow and a brown eyeliner. 

4. With clothes, I planned how many days I was going for and figured what would be the lightest and most compact, so I went for four/five dresses, some staple cardigans and the obvious pyjamas and pants/knickers/socks. 

I go in to more detail of what products I took on the actual video, so if you'd like to see that you can go here. I hope you liked this post and I hope it helps any of you by that packing a little bit easier. 



  1. Haha I wish I was as organized as you and made a list before I packed! I usually just stuff things I think I need into my duffel bag and then remember I left something important behind when I pull into my destination :P
