Hey girl hey. And boy.
I have hinted at this a couple times in my last blog posts but if you didn’t know already, I got an all-paid business trip by the entrepreneurial program I joined this year. I am so thankful for this opportunity and will be sharing what I learned with you all (inshallah) as I know some of my blogging friends have businesses (whoop whoop). Definitely leave your business questions in the comments before this Friday and I’ll try to ask for you. This is the first time I’m not sharing a suitcase with my sister so I thought I should definitely make one of these posts! Plus, if you end up taking my suitcase by accident, at least you’ll know it’s mine when you open it (and hopefully return ittt – I’m watching you 😂). I love watching these videos on youtube so I thought I’ll bring it to my blooog. I really need to stop rambling and get right into it. Let’s get starteddd.
Now I won’t be showing you every outfit (hmm thinking of doing a business ootd soon) but I’ll list the general clothes I packed.
- 3 cardigans
- 2 long sleeve shirts
- 1 vest
- 1 pair of heels (the way my toes will die – Natalie, give me tips 😂)
- 4 chiffon hijabs and 4 underscarves (I’m really extra)
- 2 pairs of PJ’s
- Under garments because duh
- One pair of sweatpants
- 2 pairs of wide paints
- One jumper
And I think that’s it? A lot of formal clothes though!
Neeext we’ll get into a hygeine bag I created because this trip will take a couple days. I found this really cute kit at Dollarama and it’s so convenienttt. I packed mini:
- face lotion
- hair cream
- body mist
- shower gel
This is a great way to save money instead of buying small sized shampoos, conditioners..etc
And three pairs of shoes (I ended up ditching the flip flops – the bare foot life is awaiting me 😂)
I feel like I’m super lame for only having this in my suitcase but simplicity is key am I right?
*forgets something important*
And now for the carry on!
I made another hygiene bag and used Kityp0p’s Eggie bag to pack it in.
Then I have my go-to hard cover learning journal where I write notes on anything Islam as well as life lessons I learn. So on the way I might listen to a podcast or seerah lecture and there, I’ll take business notes using it too.
Yes, my charger is in a glasses case, it was a life hack, don’t judgeee. 😂
Finally, just a few last minute items like hand wipes, a book I got from the library today, clothing pins for my hijab because I hate the needle style pins aand my wallet. I also added my flight information page but we ain’t trying to attract stalkers on this blog.
Also me: reveals all contents of my suitcase
p.s. I just realized the book and notebook will NOT fit in my mini bag – we’re going book there and then notebook on the way back. 😂
Anddd that’s all for today. This was a pretty short post but if you want a long one, you could definitely check out my 8000 word post from Friday. You know, not too long. 😂
What do you usually pack on trips?
I’ll see you all in my next post.
