How I Pack For Traveling Hacks + Tips

Published by Darron Toy on

good morning everyone in today's vlog I'm gonna be showing you guys what I like to do to prepare for traveling I'm gonna be going to New York tomorrow I'm just kind of getting ready all day as well as like getting some work done but that's kind of boring to show you so I'm just gonna show you what I like to do to prepare for a trip I definitely used to be the kind of person that would just throw some stuff in a suitcase the morning of my flight and just run out the door and then over time I just realized it's not fun being not prepared and forgetting things and not having what you want so I like to take some time to get prepared first thing I like to do the day before I go on a trip is I like to get any maintenance beauty services done so usually I get my eyebrows done right now I'm just doing them myself but I have an eyelash appointment later the reason I love doing this is because it just makes you more ready while you're traveling or if you've ever gotten your eyelashes done you know that you feel like you don't even have to wear makeup like you feel like you're already ready for the day and that's so nice when I'm going to New York which is three hours ahead but I also want to be ready quickly so I can sleep in a little and then just like be like I'm ready traveling can be a lot on your body it really beats it down so if you can really get all your maintenance done the day before like don't feel like such a potato by the end of your trip eyebrows are done okay next I will do a self tanner I usually only use self tanner like on my face and neck in the winter just because no one's seen my whole body I actually do this really often like every two days I'll do it because it wears off pretty quickly and then I'll immediately put on like a moisturizer cuz that just helps blend it more that is all I'll do usually the day before I travel I won't wear makeup if I don't need to probably should give my skin a break I'm gonna be using this hike toward back my brother and his wife got it for me for Christmas and I think it's like for outdoor stuff you're supposed to put like extra food in things but I found that all these pouches are really handy for makeup before this trip I plan on just checking my bag so I'm gonna bring full-size items with me but I usually have a couple travel things just from like other trips like totes so I got this is nice I always think like the really small one out travel toothpastes are too small it's like you use them up so quick so I like to get the bigger ones this is 2.7 ounces but it's still below the limit so you can take this on a plane lasts wait longer and this is just a mini deodorant and then I just have a travel Cetaphil someone commented apparently this is like really bad for you so after I finish this I'll look for something better and then a travel dry shampoo so essential because there's some days when you're traveling but you just don't want to wash her hair so yeah that's it people see fits so well not a problem actually crazy sometimes I don't pack shampoo and conditioner I'll just use whatever's at the hotel but my hair has been so dry lately I just think it's actually really important I use the stuff that I bought for it are you guys fresh lashes they're like a mixed set of like natural and volume yeah I love them I'm here at Rain glow this is my wonderful lash technician so so fun we talked the entire time like it was like actually it's just so fun yeah I usually get bored but this was like it flew by in 85 so rain glow isn't Wedgwood a little bit north of Seattle but it's still like really nearby and convenient and I really enjoyed it here so yay fresh lashes I'm not one to usually plan outfits ahead of time for a week but if you do this it really helps you not over pack because then you know exactly what you need for each day and that's what you take and you don't need to take anything else so I do like to plan outfits for if I'm packing for a trip because it helps you know over pack so I am gonna do that since it's gonna be freezing I'm starting with just all my warm coats I will be bringing but yeah these are my jackets that I'll bring and then just kind of do some outfits with that so all right you guys are about to be like Monica when did you get so email about this sort of stuff and obviously I really don't know but just prepare yourself here we go basically like four outfits so with everything I paired like a warm jacket and a sweater and then a little tank top in case there are moments where like we're just gonna go to a restaurant and hop in an uber and not be walking around outside where it's cold that kind of thing so yeah just take jacket sweater top pants and some shoes here you guys kind of get an overview of it and then I paired shoes with everything but I'm not actually gonna bring all these shoes I'm probably just gonna bring these and these because shoes take up so much space in your luggage and then also just got some yoga pants just kind of comfy clothes in the hotel like t-shirt crew necks that kind of thing and then I just have like socks and underwear so basically that is exactly what I will be bringing with me it shouldn't everything I somehow managed to fit pretty much everything and then lastly I have just these little tank tops just fit so easily right on top so I always just kind of do that last that's basically it you guys I've got like all my stuff packed up so I'm gonna check in for my flight now I actually forgot what time it's out I think it's 8 a.m. I bought this flight with SkyMiles right gonna take a look at the seat map and then just see how much preferred are I think it's free okay yeah heck yeah since it's a 6-hour flight I'm gonna go with I'll see to go okay my flight gets in at 4 p.m. tomorrow leaves at 7:50 a.m. ok I did not realize that that sucks ok alright let's go my place for tea in 20 minutes don't make it to starve us unfortunately you're kidding but I just watched a little bit in the other direction and there's a coffee place that's honestly better no I'm getting on the plane now nothing to show you so just so you see Dean concept and first thing I see my new friend Shake Shack I just landed in New York she'll be landing in about thirty minutes so I'm actually at the board right now looking for her flight if that there's some ice on the ground everyone kept telling me don't go to New York it's gonna be super cold but the weather says it's like 30 degrees like I've been in 30-degree weather like against 30 degrees in Seattle I think I'll be by showing lambs from LA two years I'm actually looking up for play right now read about her date – just go like right Tours doesn't really show it on the airport it just updates in low-light Elliot – Geoff Keighley flights arriving so I'm doing that and something I'm very interesting that I didn't realize is it'll show like at 4:15 yeah there's ten planes landing at 4:15 p.m. so I think they have like 10 different strips and all ten of them are from Boston isn't that weird like I didn't realize and if like that for a lot of them like there's four planes landing from London at the exact same time and two I didn't realize so there's one two three four five from Los Angeles at the it's super interesting and I think they just said I didn't realize they must have been together it's easier for air traffic control or something I'm guessing first step outside in the music frigid weather it doesn't feel that cold but the last couple days thank you oh my gosh just elevators look clear there's like eggs that's cartons of eggs isn't that funny I got these double deluxe around oh it's awesome okay but most importantly the bath products I really hope oh they're not it you guys I'm so disappointed what the heck vegetable so that's what I get I do love this room this is the room it's really cool this like actually like bounces off the wallpaper it looks really cool two beds this is a closet I actually like this concept a lot as a newly loving interior designer person I like this whole see-through wardrobe because honestly your clothes kind of like look awesome you know what I mean we have like these nice wood floors a little chair Lovegood pendant white and yeah that's it I forgot to show you guys the coolest part of all the whole room here we go that is a TV is that super cool I am into that I want one of these in my house one day it's like chic wait that's so I love it I love this I was expecting just like orange cheddar cheese blocks because most places do that but these this looks like a nice cheddar right here can I just say like this looks good Wow very impressive a now let's come in I think comes up still trying to feel like top but you know the will just come to a stop

Do you use packing cubes in any of your videos? They are time and space savers, organizing really well. 😊

Kayla Michelle · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

cerave is way better than cetaphil

post moddy · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

this year was actually an "el nino" year, so we had a particularly warm/rainy winter, hence the 30 degree weather

Aurel Julia · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Christian Fernandez · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Aaron Rippstein · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

So you have your own bar cart in your bedroom? That is awesome, just missing the mini fridge.

Jasmin Fortune · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

John lord Vicente · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Danae Diedericks · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Arianna Gatto · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Girl get flight radar for tracking flights! It’s so awesome. You can literally see EVERY single plane in the sky at that current time. Look up a flight # or just the route (by airports) and 10/10 times the flight you need comes up

Sophie Lyon · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

my favorite part of your videos is at the end when it says "more vlogs:" and then it's blank

Yasmine Cheema · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

C&H · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

D Lish · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Ugh… I miss New York SO BADLY!!!!!!

D Lish · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Are Shelby and Monica identical twins?

Danielle O'Sullivan · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Love love loveeeee your videos

ssaahhrraa9 · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

Its not that they have 5 flights from the same place landing at the same time its the same flight. Certain airlines work together and they label the flight as their company even though its anothers, for example Qantas owns jetstar so if you book 2 jetstar flights one might be from qantas but they will label it as "jetstar flight JF8 operated by Qantas". I hope that makes sense LOL

AndreaLissetteReyes · July 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm

idk if I'm gonna sound dumb but what are the eggs under the elevators for?
