Winter Holidays - Ideas on Things to Carry.

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

Holidays are coming! I figured, if I could help people prepare for their holidays, it would start with preparation. Preparation is key, especially when you are travelling home or abroad. Must haves you can't do without. You need to have all of your creature comforts, well as many as possible. If, you are planning on visiting one of the many European countries this winter, it's essential to make sure that you have everything you need before leaving home. I know most of us won't leave home without our face creams, Lip Balm, phone, chargers, money and so many other items. Why? We want to know that we haven't forgot anything. This might help you with some of the packing essentials.

Toiletries & Beauty Products

All of our lives are hectic and it’s helpful to rely on a calendar, planner, or list to stay organized and on track. I always have a list which helps me not to forget the important things. So, the next few items I would remind you to pack is:

  • Toothbrush

  • Tooth Paste

  • Deodorant

  • Tweezers / Comb/ Brush

  • Shampoo / Conditioner

  • Soap/ Shaving supplies

  • Lotion/ Face wash

  • Feminine Products

  • Contacts / Solution

Working through your list of other items, would be beauty products Guys and Gals. Listen no body wants to look like a scare crow or to look dishevelled, unless you have no hair, Don't Care and then that's fine! Ok, getting back to the list:
