Hi everyone.
0:16
Welcome back to Lavendaire.
0:18
Today I wanted to share my best tips
0:20
for packing for travel, specifically packing for a carry on and your backpack,
0:24
whatever you’re going to bring on the plane with you.
0:27
I normally only like to pack
0:28
a carry on for my trips.
0:30
This is going to be a 10-day trip throughout London and Amsterdam,
0:34
and last time I went on a two-week trip in Europe, I also packed a carry on as well.
0:39
If you haven’t seen my previous packing videos, you can check it out here and here,
0:43
or you can click the card in the upper-right corner to watch those videos.
0:46
But today I’m just gonna go into specifics on my method of packing.
0:51
My first tip is definitely: fold things vertically, the Konmari way.
0:56
I have a lot of videos
0:57
on how to fold the Konmari way.
0:59
If you want to check those out, they’re also linked below.
1:02
But basically, fold them to the height of your suitcase so that when you put your clothes
1:07
in,
1:08
everything will fit right here to the rim and you can see all of your clothes at a glance.
1:15
This is a game-changer for when you’re traveling and living out of a suitcase.
1:20
You don’t want to take things out.
1:21
I always keep everything in my suitcase.
1:23
I only unpack what I need to for that day.
1:26
So this is my closet.
1:28
This is what the closet looks like,
1:29
and I just like being able to choose my outfits this way because I could see mostly everything.
1:34
I did make an exception this time.
1:36
Some things I packed horizontally because they’re just so flimsy,
1:40
it just didn’t work as well vertically.
1:44
But yeah, for the flimsy leggings and random stuff,
1:47
I will pack normally.
1:48
But for my main outfits, I will pack vertically.
1:51
Tip #2: Have pouches for everything!
1:55
I am a pouch girl…that sounds weird.
1:58
Is that weird?
1:59
I literally love to have pouches to hold everything.
2:03
I like to stay organized
2:04
and categorize everything.
2:06
So this is my pouch for socks and underwear.
2:09
I also fold them vertically like this.
2:12
I just put my mirror because I didn’t want it to break.
2:15
But yeah, I have underwear here and socks here.
2:19
And I always pack extra
2:21
because you never know.
2:22
I have a pouch for makeup.
2:24
A pouch for random tech accessories.
2:26
There’s chargers, adaptors, and stuff in here.
2:29
And then I have my toiletry pouch.
2:32
Also, in my backpack, I have this pouch that I love where I keep my iPad, my hard drive.
2:40
And check this out: I have a face mask that I’m going to wear in the airplane.
2:44
So pouches for everything, helps you stay super organized and I just can’t do it any
2:49
other way.
2:50
My next tip is to transfer all of your large products into smaller containers.
2:55
I always like to save my little bottles from skincare or beauty products because I know
3:00
I’m going to use them again.
3:02
These are from previous skincare things that I’ve used up.
3:05
I’ve transferred my May Coop essence, which is this big one, into this small one here.
3:11
And then here, because I think my foundation’s a little too big, I transferred my foundation
3:16
into this smaller container.
3:17
So I think it’s such a game-changer.
3:19
Plus, I got to mix another foundation in here so that it would better match my color.
3:25
My next tip is to save up all your sample-sized products or travel-sized products
3:30
for when you travel.
3:31
So I don’t usually use these little samples on the regular.
3:35
I just bring them
3:37
because they’re tiny and I get to try new products, and why not?
3:41
I have a couple primers here
3:43
and these are some oils for my face that are sample-sized of my favorite products.
3:49
My next tip is to use these toothbrush covers to bring your favorite toothbrush with you.
3:53
I don’t like to use travel toothbrushes because they’re not good quality.
3:58
These covers, I got from Daiso.
4:01
They come in a pack of six or eight.
4:04
I love them.
4:05
It’s just really hygienic, I think.
4:07
And I really like it.
4:09
My next tip is kind of obvious but I know not everyone does this.
4:12
Honestly, guys,
4:13
put your shoes in a plastic bag when you travel so that the germs and the dirt
4:18
don’t get everywhere else in your luggage.
4:20
I also like to bring a couple extra plastic bags to put all my dirty clothes in after
4:25
I wear them.
4:26
The way I do it is: I fold them up into little triangles.
4:29
But when I’m in the hotel or AirBNB,
4:32
when I have dirty clothes, I will put them on top of the plastic bag, kind of let them
4:38
air out
4:39
or a little bit.
4:40
And then, when I’m ready to pack everything, I’ll put everything in the plastic bag,
4:44
seal it up, and then go, because I feel like, if you immediately put it in the plastic
4:48
while you’re still staying in a room, it just gets musty…musky?
4:52
What’s that word?
4:53
It will just smell more if you seal it up and leave it there without letting it air
4:58
out a little bit.
4:59
That’s just how I’m thinking in my head.
5:02
Another tip I have when traveling is to scatter your cash throughout your bags
5:07
because you don’t want to keep all your money in one place, because what if
5:10
you get pick-pocketed?
5:12
Or something gets stolen?
5:13
You just want to have some backup.
5:15
So the way I do it is I always hide some cash in different pouches
5:18
and different areas just in case.
5:20
You never know.
5:21
Okay, moving onto my backpack.
5:25
My next tip is to make sure, if you want to get something
5:28
while you’re on the plane, to put it in your purse or in the backpack that you will have
5:33
right next to you.
5:34
Don’t put things in your carry on luggage that will go in the overhead bin
5:37
because if you want to get something, it’s really annoying to ask people
5:40
to help you open it and whatever.
5:43
So if I need to do something–for example:
5:45
I’m planning to work and edit on the plane, so I brought my laptop in my backpack with
5:50
me
5:51
so that I could just have that easy access.
5:53
My next tip is: make sure you have a name tag on all your bags just because
5:59
you don’t know what’s going to happen.
6:01
What if your bag gets lost?
6:02
Even if it’s a carry on, you never know.
6:04
So I think it’s always safe to have your name,
6:06
your number, your email address, whatever on your bags.
6:10
Something I’m going to try this time because I’ve seen other people do it is to bring a
6:14
face mask
6:15
with me on the airplane so I can do some inflight skincare because it gets really dry up there.
6:19
I think this will be really fun.
6:20
I’m actually looking forward to doing this.
6:23
Another thing I’d recommend is to bring some cough drops with you.
6:27
Or in my case,
6:28
I have this Chinese throat syrup.
6:30
It’s basically called loquat syrup and it’s like a honey texture
6:35
where I will just eat it straight from the package.
6:38
It soothes your throat so I’m saying,
6:40
in case you have a cough on the plane because it’s really dry up there.
6:44
I hate to be that person who’s coughing nonstop on the plane.
6:47
So just in case.
6:49
Another tip is to keep your phone charger with you at all times in your bag,
6:53
and also get an external charger because it will save your life.
6:58
Most airports
6:59
and some airplanes will have outlets so that you can charge your phones
7:02
so it’s always nice if you can have your charger with you.
7:05
I’ve been that person
7:06
where I’ve seen an outlet and I’m like, “Dang it, my phone’s out of battery
7:09
but my charger’s up there,” or somewhere that’s not on hand.
7:13
My next tip is to always wear the biggest and the heaviest items of clothing with you
7:19
on the plane, that way you don’t have to pack your big and bulky items.
7:24
For example: this time,
7:25
I’m taking this giant blanket scarf which is huge and takes up a lot of space, but it’s
7:30
going to be
7:31
my blanket on the airplane.
7:33
And I’m also going to take my big coat with me as well.
7:35
If you’re a frequent traveler and you always end up with extra coins and extra money
7:40
from all the different places you’ve traveled to, make sure you save them
7:44
and organize them into pouches.
7:47
I’ve saved these euros and pounds from my last trip to Europe,
7:51
and I just keep them organized separately.
7:54
I have all my different currencies in different
7:57
little pouches so that whenever I go back to that place, then I can just bring that
8:01
currency back.
8:02
My last tip is: it’s always good to bring an empty water bottle with you
8:05
in your carry on so you can refill it at the airport or on the airplane
8:09
because it’s really dehydrating to fly.
8:12
Sometimes I’ll forget to bring an empty water bottle
8:13
so I’ll just buy a water in the airport after security and everything because I need to
8:18
have
8:19
a bottle of water while I’m on the plane because the water that they give is just never enough.
8:23
So I like to have my own stash, my own thing of water.
8:28
Alright, I hope you liked today’s tips on how to pack for travel.
8:31
I’ve actually made
8:32
a packing checklist that you can download.
8:34
The link is below.
8:36
Just to help you out
8:37
and just for me to use every time I travel because it’s annoying to make a new list each
8:41
and every time, so this is going to save you a lot of time.
8:44
So I’m also going to make another video where I’m sharing my travel camera gear,
8:49
my camera gear for travel, vlogging, and taking Instagram photos.
8:53
So if you want to watch that,
8:54
the link is below and in the upper-right corner.
8:56
I’ll see you next time.
8:58
Bye!
