Trip Packing: Toiletries & Cosmetics

It's almost time!! My husband & I are leaving in a week for our 6-day vacation to San Francisco! Can I get a WOOHOO?!?! This will be our first real vacation of the year and we're super excited about getting away. Yes, I know that I pack way ahead of time, but believe it or not this was actually "late" by my standards. If things hadn't been so busy lately, then I would've been packed two weeks ago. Today's video is an inside view of how I pack all of my toiletries and cosmetics...

I plan on posting a video right before we leave to show how I pack my suitcases with clothes and accessories. I'm a tiny bit OCD when it comes to making sure that I have EVERYthing that I would want while away, so if packing isn't your strong suit, maybe you'll get a few tips or tricks out of it. And you can feel free to pass judgement on me...I am aware of the fact that I'm a little bit crazy when it comes to details. I get it from my Mama. (Love you, Mama!)

Have you ever been to San Francisco?? Any recommendations you want to pass my way? I'd love to hear them, so bring 'em on!



  1. I could never pack a week before my trip. I'm the day before kind of girl.

  2. Go see a Broadway show, shop in Union Square, San Francisco Giants game, Alcatraz, People watch along the wharf. Have fun!! Stacie xo

  3. Great video and I LOVE your organization! I have a few trips coming up and this definitely helps! Hope you guys have SO much fun!

  4. my ocd really kicks in when i'm packing, haha! i pretty much bring everything i own for fear that i'm gonna need all of those things (i never do, btw, haha!). ;) i am definitely excited to learn a few tips and tricks from you. :)

    p.s. i love san francisco! we always eat at chinatown and at the fisherman's wharf! if you guys have some time, a side trip to napa would be amazing too! :D

  5. WOOHOO - have a great time!

    and your way of packing is better than my way of packing, in which something crucial (underwear, contact case, etc.) is usually forgotten, haha.

  6. Hi dear, wow you are so organized, we could all pick up a few great tips from you. So excited to hear about your trip, its never too early or too late to start packing, its part of the travel fun!

  7. I love it. I totally pack a week before. "Last minute" for me is two nights before. ;) If you're looking for an easy peasy lunch spot on the water, I'd recommend Pier 23 Cafe on the Embarcadero. Low key, yummy food.

  8. I'm the worst packer on earth. No exaggerating. Enjoy your trip! I love, love SF.

  9. Woohoo!! Yay for Vaca! Vacation starts here on Friday! :) The hubby is off for 10 glorious days. My parents are coming in town on Saturday for the week and we are going to head out to Colorado to enjoy some Mtn time. Hope you have a fantastic time in San Fran! :)


  10. And I thought I was organized, this is incredible! I can't wait to see how you tackle your clothes section. Wendy's Lookbook also has an amazing packing tutorial if you are interested.

    Have so much fun in San Francisco, it's one of my all time favorite places! Treat yourself to an ice cream sundae at Ghiradelli's, a sandwich at Ikes and definitely get to Chinatown for some dim sum or at least a meal! The tour of Alcatraz is really cool too!

  11. Oh, I love this! I'm obsessed with packing tips for some reason, so this post is great!

  12. Looking forward to your packing video :) I recommend the boat tour around Alcatraz island, which also takes you under the Golden Gate Bridge. Also, make sure that you take a walk down Lombard street...the most crooked street in the world.


  13. I am SO OCD about packing it's incredible. Love the video and have so much fun on your trip!! :)

  14. the blog world is just so magical, thanks for hopping over from megan's blog the other day. totally love love love the concept you two have put together over here. and your header is stellar, if i might add.

  15. How FUN??! Never been to SF yet, but it is definitely on my bucket list. Have fun!
