Pack right, pack light! 🎒

Ok, I'm definitely the sort of person that packs for all eventualities when it comes to holidays, but here are my top tips to pack light where possible! 👌
_
☀️ Make a list - this way you don't forget anything (and hopefully won't over pack)
☀️ Roll don't fold - this definitely saves space
☀️ Plan your outfits (sometimes easier said than done, but it definitely helps me not to overload)
☀️ If you're travelling by car use a plastic box instead of a bag, sounds ridiculous but it makes packing up the car so much easier
☀️ Last of all - Don't take your whole bathroom cabinet, take small bottles where possible! We now have 100ml tubes of our moisturiser which are so handy for travelling or our Try-Me boxes which have mini bottles of all your essential toiletries!
