StyleLife: Travel Tips

July is here and prime vacation season is once again upon us. With the Fourth of July and warm weather ahead, there is no better time to take a break from your routine and get away for some relaxation. Which is exactly what I am busy doing right now with my husband in Las Vegas. While I am busy shopping and lounging by the pool, here are my favorite travel tips and an easy printable packing list to help make your next vacation a little easier.


1} While cleaning your house before you leave can be a hassle, it is worth it to come home without a list of chores that need completing. I also like to have all my clothes washed so I don’t have double the laundry upon my return!

2} My must have apps include:

Flipboard – To catch up on my favorite blogs.

Twitter – To keep up with social media and share great travel finds.

Instagram – What’s better than sharing your travel photos instantly?

Alarm System – Ours notifies when the alarm has been deactivated so we know our home is safe and sound.

Pinterest – Great for wasting time in the airport while waiting on your flight.

3] There is nothing worse than lost luggage, so never leave anything you cherish in your checked baggage.

4} Free water vs. $3 bottled water? Easy decision.

5} Inevitably my packed liquids always leak, so packing them in airtight bags prevents them from ruining my precious clothes.

6} Do you really want your shoes that are full of dirt and germs contaminating your clean clothing? I didn’t think so.

7} Everyone knows I love shopping on a trip, so I always make sure to have room or an extra bag to bring some goodies home!

8} Even if it is 100 degrees at your destination, airplanes, airports and restaurants are ALWAYS freezing.

9} Nothing stresses me out quite like airport security, so I always make sure to wear sandals or slip-on shoes to make things move a little quicker.

10} Vacations should be FUN, not stressful!

    I always like to include a colour palette with my packing. That way every piece I bring can be mixed and matched together, and I can reduce the size of my suitcase! Also, a flatiron can double as (or in my case, replace) a curling iron. I'm all about carrying around as little as possible!

      That is a great tip Lyndsey! I actually do the same and it worked so well on my trip last week. A lot of black and white prints with some colorful add ons! Though I still ended up over packing as always, oops!

    love the packing list! I used to make one but now just hope I remember everything! :)

  4. [...] It’s not that I don’t adore my current oh-so-preppy powder blue luggage, it’s just that something chic from DVF would be much more fun. In order to help ease the burden of packing, I stumbled across this adorable packing list from Pinque blog… [...]

    I always make it a point to download must-have apps before leaving for vacation trips. A mobile map, especially always come in handy. Games are also suggested to bust long hours of waiting in line for a theme park ride or waiting for the plane to land. Great tips!

    I'm actually moving from Canada to the UK for a year this August and that list is definitely going to come in handy for me. I want to pack efficiently but being a beauty/fashion blogger/YouTuber I don't want to forget anything haha, it's going to be tricky!
