We love travelling and looking great but we do not love lugging around heavy bags (especially when we’ve got kids in toe too!). We’ve got 5 quick and easy to remember tips to ensure you stay light on your feet!
1. Bring multi-purpose products.
We’re talking a makeup remover that doubles as a cleanser, or a sunscreen that also moisturises your skin. Cut the non-essentials!
2. It’s all about the light layers.
Erratic weather? Pack light layers that let you stay cool when it’s warm, and warm when it’s chilly out. Leggings and tank tops work great under jeans and T-shirts.
3. Stick to two pairs of shoes.
It really depends on where you’re going to, but if you’re heading to a city, a pair of durable sneakers and comfortable flats should suffice.
4. Scarves are your best friend.
They keep you warm and come in handy when you’re required to cover your head, shoulders and legs when visiting religious grounds. Be mindful of the cultural norms and dressing standards of the place you’re visiting.
5. Take only as much as you can carry.
There isn’t going to be anyone around to carry your stuff, so it’s important to be comfortable with the weight and be in control of all your belongings at all times.
