I place everything out on my bed to see if anything is missing or if I need to make changes.
I gather all the skincare I will need for the climate I am visiting. This Kerastase is super hydrating and should keep my hair from going crazy in the cold, damp weather of Vancouver, Canada. I am obsessed with this whipped tallow body butter, and Hey Honey 24/7 cream is my go to for cold weather. I like these lady wipes by Sweet Spot Labs for travel because you never know what you are going to get in public restrooms and these keep things fresh. I know we have a few hikes planned so I am bringing my CBD for life foot cream, muscle relief spray, and cream. These products are amazing after a long hike to help ease muscle fatigue! I have a post working for next week with more info.
This Makeup Forever foundation is a favorite right now!
These Aveda Styling products are a must have for cold weather!

I just discovered Jules Smith (checkout/discount code DORAN20) for their super chic and easy to style jewelry. I am obsessed with their collar necklaces and bangles.
Another Jules Smith piece that I am loving right now.
When I pack for a trip I like to only pack things I need or will use! So I write out my itinerary on a sheet of paper then create outfits in Photoshop like I would for a blog post. From there I create outfit piles on my bed and add in everything else I will need like makeup and jewelry. This way I can see if anything is missing or if I need to make changes.
After everything is out I start packing. I like to try to keep everything in a carry on— my bags have been lost way to0 many times to over pack and check my bag through. First I pack up all of my jewelry in an organizer, then my cosmetics and finally my clothes. Super simple!
