Travel Essentials

Let’s admit it, packing is the hardest part of traveling. I remember once I packed a little too much: six pairs of shoes, four pairs of jeans, laptop, three books, and all that just in case items for vacation. Over-packing is unnecessary because in reality, half of it will probably not be used.


So for my next trip, I challenged myself to not be the usual over-packer me but to travel light and pack just the essentials for a 3 day 2 night trip.

As a result, here are my weekend trip packing essentials:


Makeup Bag and/or Toiletry Bag

Remember, the key is not to over-pack but to bring just the necessities such as moisturizer, everyday makeup, and essential toiletries.


Versatile Clothing and Footwear

Some items can be worn more than once and in different ways. Choose only one or two pairs of shoes unless you need to take ootd photos for your Instagram haha!




I always bring my Fujifilm XA3 and Instax Wide 300 with me. No explanation needed.


Clutch Wallet


Crown Smart Pouch Wallet can fit up to 6-inch smartphone, but this one from River Island x Zalora clutch can fit anything! 😉

Don’t forget the following: pocket money, passport, ID, phone and other travel documents.


The Girl Tommy Hilfiger Perfume


Why is it called “The Girl”? The fragrance was inspired by Gigi’s free-spirited nature and optimistic attitude. According to Gigi Hadid, “The Girl’ means being true to yourself and having fun while you’re at it, appreciating every moment, laughing at myself, and surrounding myself with everything that makes me happy”.


Whether I’m feeling elegant or adventurous, every time I smell Tommy Hilfiger’s new fragrance, it makes me feel optimistic. The Girl for me relates to the youth. One who trusts her inner senses and strongly pursues her passions in life to reach her utmost dreams. Most importantly, she knows how to enjoy life with a good heart. It is reminiscent of a young girl, dancing and singing amidst the flamboyant cool nature – scent of floral spring, reflections by a sophisticated beau of a fascinating lady who reiterates the simple innocence softly enchanted by ‘The Girl’ fragrance dabbed and lightly sprayed in her bosom.
