Suitcase Packing Checklist

What if someone offered you the trip of a lifetime if you could be ready in 30 minutes – could you do it? Now, I don’t expect this to ever happen but a girl can dream right?

Here is what I keep in mine (additionally, I have an emergency duffle that I keep in the car if I were to forget anything important):

Pick one color scheme and carry it through all your clothing and you can mix and match for days.

  • Swimsuit
  • Pre-packed travel size of your favorite products
  • Sunscreen
  • Toothbrush
  • Gym Shoes
  • Flip Flops
  • Little Black Dress
  • Comfiest Outfit of Your Choice
  • Bathrobe and Slippers
  • Hairbrush
  • Supplies for a Quick and Easy Hairdo
  • Simple Heels
  • Simple Flats
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Cardigan

What am I missing? What would you keep in your bag?

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
