I snagged this off a page of a magazine and decided to share it here since I found it to be rather useful.
Most of us know the 'rolling' trick when it comes to packing, but this ones goes a step further. Line, lay, roll and fold.
Line the bottom of the suitcase with heavier items like shoes and roll the jeans and place it in the center. Lay dresses and pants on top - alternating the waistbands to maximize space. Roll sweaters and shirts on top for the third 'layer', and covering them with the ends of the dresses and pants below. Finally, fold delicates and intimates into laundry bags and lay on the top together with your toiletry pouch.
I think I'll try out this method for my next trip.
Meanwhile, a side note on hair products that I use. My stylist will always lament on how easily tangled my fine hair gets. I've been told by several stylists that I have non-Asian hair or Caucasian hair -_-
I can't use a lot of hair products as my hair will land up limp and flat. I use this grapeseed serum from Bodyshop to minimize the fly-away bits but it usually lands up in a mess. As such, I prefer growing out my hair so that the natural curls are enhanced and I just let it look naturally messy.
My stylist gave me this anti-gravity hair spray by Sebastian to help style and shape my hair. So far, it helps a little.
I've recently ordered a sea salt spray by Bumble and Bumble from Amazon to achieve the tousled beach look. It's quite useful! The only concern I have is that since it's a salt spray, I'm literally adding salt grains onto my hair which adds onto the residue build up. So I'll need to use a residue build up shampoo like Nuetrogena to rinse it all off - at least every once in awhile. Has anyone else tried it before yet?
