JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Try it Thursday: pre-packing

Anyone who knows me knows I am a terrible planning contradiction. I love to travel and always like having plans to go places - but I hate booking anything that actually confirms that travel. Same goes for packing. I'm a last minute kind of gal, which means I usually end up with far too few things, but hey - there's not many places in the world where you can't buy a new pair of knickers and a toothbrush these days.

But check me out this week - I decided to pack. Not on the same day I have to leave! 

So I put everything in bags. Like seriously, everything.

And even though it looks like my suitcase is full - half of it underneath my various shoe bags is a box with a wedding present in it. In fact, I had so much room leftover that I even fit an ordered-last-minute tux in for the bride's brother (you can just see the shirt peeking out on the left hand side there).  

So as it turns out, I still probably under pack even when I have time to think about what I want to take. Luckily I'm heading home where fashionista mum wears the same size shoe as me. And at least I'll have a cute underwear bag to gaze at when I run out of clean clothes halfway through my trip.
