I must admit that I am really jealous of all my designer friends who are in Paris for Maison & Objet right now. Seeing their pictures on instagram have stirred up fond memories of my time there last September. This picture was taken just before I entered Maison & Objet. Can we say “happy girl”? For those that aren’t into the design world, Maison & Objet is the furniture market in Paris. The experience is amazing. I was able to mark it off my bucket list, but not off my mind. I can’t wait to return. In pondering my time in Paris, and perusing through my photographs, I realized I never posted about so many of the events and details of my travels.
If you follow the blog on a regular basis you know that I have done a lot of traveling over the past couple of years for work both domestically and internationally. I am constantly getting emails with questions about what to pack, recommendations of restaurants, hotels or sightseeing, as well as various other questions about travel, so I have decided to post travel tips, recommendations, about trips I’ve taken and so forth on Saturdays. Do I know everything there is about travel? No! Do I have all the answers? No! I will be able to share about my travels and things I have enjoyed on trips. Hopefully, this will spark discussion from all of you about suggestions of things you have done or recommend. Please feel free to comment with your own experiences.
They say it is always best to start at the very beginning, so today I’m talking about how to pack. I’m bearing my soul here, as this is actually my bedroom with a bed full of clothing. I admit my first attempt at packing typically begins just like this! This was a actual picture taken in my bedroom while packing for a trip. I know it looks haphazard, but it works for me. I am such a visual person, that putting it all out there together opens up wardrobe options I wouldn’t see otherwise.
