2 Day Packing List For The Female Traveller

fashion-glasses-go-pro-female-157888-large

Today we awoke not even at the crack of dawn, but at the ass end of the night! 3:30am the alarm went and off we went on our jolly way. Hand luggage and eye bags alike. Gatwick bound and ready for a two day trip to Dublin, Ireland.

What brought us to Dublin this time is a Start-Up & Networking Festival known as Uprise Festival.

So, What the hell do you pack for a 2 day trip to Dublin? Or what did I pack anyway.

Things To Consider:

  • Weather: Pack according to the seasons, and climate of the country you are visiting. be prepared, do your research. For me: Winter. Coat, gloves and scarf are a must!
  • Situation: What are your reasons for going. Weekend away? Business? An event of some kind? Pack accordingly. For me: Networking event. Smart/Casual. Jeans, jumpers and non offensive tops it is! – I suppose non offensive can be either a top suitable to wear at an event without any objectionable images, words or your tits hanging out haha! –
  • Baggage: Are you taking hand luggage or hold luggage? – For a two day trip though, I would advise packing light, you don’t need to bring your whole wardrobe! –

Packing List (For The Female Traveller)

Clothing:

  • Top x2 – Plain is always best, black/white or some sort of block colour are easy to mix and match with trousers.
  • Jeans: One pair is all you need. Bring your favourite pair, taking into account the tops you are bringing.
  • Trousers/Leggings: Situation dependant, a black pair of trousers can look a bit smarter than jeans and leggings for full on comfort and an extra layer under your jeans if you are really cold.
  • Bras: 1 or 2 will do if you wear them. Black/White or Nude. – I don’t tend to wear bras unless I absolutely have to, I know…. Call me a hippie #FreeTheNips!
  • Underwear: Bring an appropriate amount of underwear for the amount of time you are a away and a couple spare just incase!
  • Sweater/Jumper: Always consider layers, especially in winter.
  • Coat: Bring an appropriate coat for the occasion.
  • Socks: Goes without saying, but you never know who might forget. Bring spares!
  • Towel: These Micro-Fibre towels are a great travel companion. Lightweight, takes up hardly any room in your baggage, quick drying. Awesome.

Shoes:

  • Trainers: Casual and comfortable.
  • Boots: If you have the space to pack another pair of shoes and want something that you can wear out, or something a bit more formal.
  • Slipper Socks: This could just be me, but I can’t walk around bare foot on a cold floor I need slippers or thick socks, or even better slipper socks! Winning.

What’s In Your Wash Bag:

Before I tell you what I put in MY wash bag. I wanted to let you all know that I am a huge advocate for natural beauty products and cosmetics. I try to purchase and look into as many products as possible that are organic, paraben and sulphate free and/or as natural as they can get. So the products I have shared with you are my top picks for this trip.

  • Shampoo/Conditioner: Rehab Shampoo and Retread Conditioner both by LUSH Cosmetics.
  • Soap/Shower Cream: Rose Jam (100ml) by LUSH Cosmetics. Smells divine!
  • Toothbrush/Paste: I always have with me my Sonicare electric toothbrush everywhere I go. You can buy a travel case for it too if it isn’t safe in your wash bag!
  • Deodorant: Natural Salt Deodorant by Salt Of The Earth
  • Razor: You only need one.
  • Small comb or Brush
  • Hair Ties and Kirby Grips
  • Moon Cup: I’m sure some of your are asking, WTF if a moon cup? Well, I think you should take a look at the website and see for yourself why you should be switching to this female hygiene product RIGHT NOW. I love it. It is better for our bodies, our planet and our future. BUY IT.
  • Prescriptions: Just in case you can’t get hold of it where you are.
  • Moisturiser: For your body, face and lips! These are my top picks.
    • Body – Pure Virgin Coconut Oil (100ml) nothing moisturises my skin better than  coconut oil. If I could pour it all over my life, oh I would. – I probably do already to be honest. –
    • Face Anti-ageing Moisturiser by Purity Organic Skincare. I have used this moisturiser for years and always recommend it to my friends. It has a wonderful almond scent, it’s organic and almost 100% made up of natural ingredients. My skin always feels so soft.
    • LipsShea Butter Lip Balm by Nature’s Ingredients.

Check out my top picks, let me know which are your favourites and which you would recommend to me and if any of my products worked for you!

    Cool! I used to use moon cups (or diva cups as I knew it) but recently switched to these things called the period panties called She Thinx! so the cups gone out of favour but I still keep it just in case.

      Those sounds really interesting! I may have to have a look at those myself. Are they travel friendly? Thanks for sharing!

        Hm…I think depends on you… you are supposed to rinse them then machine wash, hang to dry… so perhaps not so travel friendly if you are going from one place to another. When I travel, I bring enough and just rinse, hang to dry, then go home and machine wash them. I personally use them alone, but I have known people use them in combination of cups or tampons, for leakage purpose

    These tips are great! I have a habit of packing twice what I need for any length of trip lol
