Linking up with those wonderful ladies here


  1. We always forget nailclippers on trips abroad and have to buy some. I do write down what I bring before the trip to try to remember everything,

    1. Same here - Also, I like to get ready in advance so that I can revisit everything the day before to ensure everything I need is there :-)

  2. That dress is just stunning on you. So fun and cheerful.

    I can appreciate your lists; I’m a list maker too. Makes packing so much easier.


  3. This dress is so fresh and stunning. You look awesome in it. Love the bold colors.

  4. What a stunning maxi dress! I like the mix of colours :) I always overpack for every trip, haha! :)

    Hope that you had a wonderful weekend :)

    1. Thank you Mica - I always overpack as well. better overpack then leaving stuff behind. lol

  5. The most perfect dress for that occasion. Thanks for sharing. Jacqui x

  6. Such a pretty dress! I love the green hat with it. I always have to make a list when I go away and tick things off as I pack them - I'm one of those people who worries all the way to the airport that I've forgotten something really important! Thanks for linking up!

  8. What a beautiful dress! I love the print and the vibrant colors. I am the worst packer ever which is why I try to always travel by car. Then I can pack all the things! However, I do tend to skimp on pajamas and wear the same ones at least 2 times or I will sleep in the shirt I wore during the day. Because I don’t want to waste valuable packing space with pjs! Thanks for sharing your packing tips and linking up. I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s weekend.


    1. I like that sleeping tips and I am so with you on that :-).
