Friends friday - Packing !

That's so funny that today's topic is packing for summer vacations because that's exacly what I'm doing right now, but more about that tomorrow.

1.      When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra?

Less is more. I'm trying very hard to apply it, but I'm not very good at it.

2.      What are your must packs?

Summer dresses. They take very little place in a suitcase, most of them do not wrinkle, and they can take you from the beach to dinner in an instant.

A pair of flat sandals that are comfortable to walk in.

3 bathing suits. Why ? Because you can wash them in the sink at the hotel and there will always be one that is dry (I hate putting on a wet bathing suit).

Sunglasses, hat and sunscreen (for obvious reasons)

And a silk scarf (to know why you'll have to come back next friday !!!).
3.      What are you happy to leave behind?

Anything I might wear to work.
4.      Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one suitcase?

Roll your clothes. It takes less place and they will be less wrinkle once you get them out. And never bring more than 1 pair of heel, it takes too much space.

Or hide your clothes in the husband suitcase. Yep ! That might do the trick !

5.      Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand?

Anything not work related.

This year it's gonna be Dead in the Family from Charlaine Harris (I'm a little behind on my Sookie litterature) and The Gallows Bird from Camilla Lackberg.

Have a nice friday and come back tomorrow for some amazing news !
