3:38 Flats for you to switch into 3:40 if your sneakers feel uncomfortable 3:42 or high heels when you feel like 3:43 you want to dress up for a night out? 3:46 I like to bring a couple of different shoes with me 3:49 just in case my feet swells up while walking. 3:52 I can always switch into another pair. 3:54 Aside from that, having more variety 3:56 can give you more options 3:57 when it comes to mixing and matching your outfits. 4:01 I needed to upgrade to a smaller 4:03 and more compact toiletry bag. 4:05 The last one I had was double the size of this one. 4:09 I ended up packing things that I didn’t really need 4:12 and it just made my bag heavier. 4:15 This bag actually holds a lot more than I thought it could. 4:18 Now I don’t have to scramble looking for things. 4:21 Everything I need, all my essentials are in here. 4:26 Number six on my list of things to pack, 4:28 hair tools and an emergency kit. 4:32 Over on your right, I am packing my curling iron, 4:35 a brush, and also a body brush. 4:37 A couple of other hair products that I am not packing 4:40 with my hair bag is my gel and heat protecting spray 4:43 which I usually store with my other beauty products. 4:46 Over on the left, I’m packing other necessities 4:48 that I will probably need on the trip. 4:50 You should definitely set a bag aside 4:52 for your emergency first aid kit 4:55 or any other necessities you probably will need. 4:58 It drives me crazy whenever I go on a trip 4:59 and I forgot something, then I would have to go 5:02 to different stores and look for these items. 5:05 So this definitely saves money and time. 5:09 Number seven is a combination 5:10 of fashion and power accessories. 5:13 This can be your electronics or whatever it is, 5:16 I like to just keep them together in one compartment. 5:20 The headphones will most likely move into my carry on bag 5:23 but for now, I’m just putting this in here. 5:26 Other items that I’m going to fit into here 5:28 is my hard drive and extension cord. 5:32 I’m really excited about using this new makeup bag. 5:35 It can also be used as a toiletry bag. 5:37 It comes with a smaller zip bag inside 5:40 where you can store small items. 5:43 The way I use this is that I just flip the top down 5:46 and then I place all the bigger, bulkier items 5:49 in the middle. 5:50 After that, I would place my makeup brushes, 5:52 my lip gloss in the inside pocket. 5:55 The reason why I like this bag so much 5:57 is that all your makeup is in one compartment 5:59 and you can place this on top of the table 6:02 where you can see everything you need in front of you. 6:04 To close this up, all you have to do 6:06 is flip the bag up and pull the string. 6:10 Okay, we’re all done. 6:11 Now let’s pack everything together. 6:13 This is a medium sized luggage I am using here. 6:17 I’m going to start with the large and medium cube 6:21 followed by the toiletry bag on the side. 6:25 The smaller cube bag is going on top of the medium, 6:28 and then the laundry bag is going on top of the large cube. 6:32 Over on your left, I’m placing the shoe bags, 6:35 accessory bag, hair bag, 6:40 makeup bag, and then I’m going to buckle 6:43 and zip everything together inside the luggage. 6:46 Alright, so we have about two weeks worth of clothing 6:49 that you can mix and match style into different outfits. 6:53 I’m really happy with this whole new method of packing. 6:55 I feel like it’s going to make my travel so much easier. 6:58 Sometimes, when you have things all over the place, 7:01 it just feels overwhelming. 7:03 So by simplifying your life 7:05 and just packing the essentials you need for a trip 7:08 can really make a huge difference 7:10 to your overall experience. 7:13 Alright everyone, thank you all so much for watching. 7:15 Give this video a thumbs up 7:16 and also if you have any suggestions or any tips, 7:19 make sure to leave it in the comment section 7:21 below this video. 7:22 Comment below, let me know 7:24 where you went for vacation or where you will be going. 7:27 I love to hear where people are traveling to 7:29 or where they came from 7:30 and I love to hear about your trip 7:32 so make sure to leave it in the comment section 7:34 below this video. 7:34 Other than that, thank you all so much for watching. 7:37 I make weekly videos, and I will see you next weekend. 7:39 (kissing sound) Ciao!
