My beauty pack up + other necessaries

EN

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving home and going on a cultural adventure in a unknown country with my family: Czech RepublicPrague!

In this post I’d like to share you my packing tips. Even we are only just gone for a week, a good preparation = a good start is a half the battle.

I’ve been also checking for some good hotspots via Tripadvisor and I’m already loving a couple: Lo Veg (vegan restaurant!) and Angelato Café (ice cream shop). I hope to set foot in both these places c:

Do you have any hotspots/recommendation for me? I’d love to hear!

Morgen verlaat ik het regenachtige kikkerlandje voor een cultureel avontuur in een onbekend land met mijn familie: Tsjechië – Praag, zoals jullie wellicht al weten!

In deze post wil ik graag met jullie mijn inpaktips delen. Ook al gaan we voor een weekje weg, een goede voorbereiding is het halve werk, zegt men wel eens.

Ook al gaan we via een reisorganisatie met vaste programma’s, ik ben wel op zoek naar een aantal goede hotspots via Tripadvisor, en die zijn er hoor: Lo Veg (veganistisch restaurant!) en Angelato Cafe (ijssalon). Ik heb er zin in!

Misschien heb jij leuke hotspots / aanbeveling(en) voor mij? Ik zou het graag horen!

My toiletries bag!

Love these sample containers from The Body Shop! I also use lens cases to store my creams and such. 

Yup, storing my day and night cream in these lens cases...



 Making a to-do list.

I decided to bring 1 bag and I've picked this backpack! Super convenient and back/shoulder friendly as well. A lot of you have asked where I got this leather backpack: wholesale // similar, similar


Good-to-know handy Czech Republic facts:

  6. You're so prepared! I usually pack the night of, end up packing some useless things, forget to pack some useful things, and then buy them when I arrive. And it was really clever of you to use lens containers for other things as well! Have fun! - Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  8. i'm so jealous right now you're going to have more subjects to photograph TT___TT can you teleport some of the awesome subjects for me to photograph lol
    it's funny whenever i realize how different we, females are when it comes to packing as compared to guys. guys have their stuff like all over the place. i don't know, maybe it's just my dad but i swear they're like "just stuff everything in one go!" while we're all "these need their own small bag and that one too" and we have toiletries bag, no doubt about that. when i pack, i'm probably less specific though not as random and whatever-ly done as guys haha but my mom, she's definitely very specific and her kind of packing always requires so many small extra containers haha

    i never thought of storing creams in lens cases! whoah, that's a good way to save luggage space. but wow lens cases are like so small and i always thought it won't be enough... maybe it will since i've never tried it before.
    your luggage seems ...fit, i mean it's not overloaded (which is good, obviously) but wow how do you do that haha... my luggage is always full because i tend to bring my hair straightener and dryer and then all the charges for my gadgets haha my luggage is full of cables :))

  9. I hope you have loads of fun! Wish I could give you tips, but looks like I will be reading yours :)
    For beauty items, it's such a pain because you can only have so many liquids and space, but I do love the samples you get when you buy products, or if you buy online and their doing a special travel sizes or mini-pack for purchases over whatever amount - those are so perfect for traveling if you get them. You mini bottle and things are so great :)
