How to Travel Like A Pro

I have always done a lot of traveling as a young adult. My family doesn't live in the same city as I do and especial in the fall I am always out of town for a weekend here and there for photography. Needless to say packing has become second nature to me! Here are some helpful hints to I have learned over the years to make my travel a little easier:

+ always roll your clothes when putting them in your suit case! This is the most important rule I have. It saves a ton of room and keeps your clothes from getting wrinkled. 
+ pack 3 pairs of shoes: sandals, classic heels, and flats
+ make sure you have a small clutch (for night time) and a larger bag for day. I like the larger bag because I can just throw my DSLR in it for the day and go. 
+ try to consolidate your make up and bath bags together! don't forget those important needs like: perfume (in samples is best!), make-up, deodorant, and of course your Carefree liners for that time of the month. Find a larger toiletry bag so everything fits in one! 
+ lastly you will need your accessories and of course some reading material for the plane. I always prefer a style magazine so I can get inspired and even jot down some notes!

Here is a little video from Glam on some more great packing tips:

I'll be the first to admit that I am a professional over-packer! I can't help it! Next time I'm heading away anywhere I'll definitely be trying to follow some of this advice!
