Okay, hey, everyone! Recently, on my spring break vacation, the local youth symphony took the members (like me~) to preform in England and Scotland over 10 days. This was actually my first time leaving the country and I actually had no idea on what and how to pack for an airplane trip. So now, it's almost a month after the trip and I am now a pro at pleasing the NSA and I can now teach you guys how to also please the NSA. (Please keep in mind that I'm packing to preform over in England/Scotland as well, so some things I packed might not be needed for you. And I'm not sure if this packing style is legal in other countries because I flew from the US to England/Scotland so make sure to do proper research yourself!)
Okay, so this is the mess I'm bring overseas. Let's get started on packing!
First, here is my super cute toiletries bag (I found it for $1.50 at a yard sale)~ The symphony chaperons recommended that we use the 3-1-1 rule (which is basically states only having 3.4 ounce bottles in 1 quart-sized bag (just shove as many bottles as you can in that bag) with only one bag per flyer) and we could transfer our toiletries into another bag after the flight.
I didn't want to bother with wearing/bringing makeup so I didn't bring any products. This face wants to be free and in the nude. But what I managed to fit in my quart-sized bag was:
- a space-saving, collapsible toothbrush
- a lot of hair ties, clips, and bobby pins
- a small comb because my hair is short
- a small perfume bottle filled with Bath & Body Work's Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist
- Bath & Body Work's Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion
- Bath &d Body Work's Japanese Cherry Blossom foaming hand sanitizer
- Herbal Essence Shampoo & Conditioner
- a little jar of coconut oil for the hair
I wish that I didn't bring shampoo and conditioner because we stayed at 7 different hotels and each had its own shampoo and conditioner (which I ended up taking home because it was free). Other than that, everything lasted me and I actually used all of the items rather them not be used and take up space in my suitcase. Tip: it was incredibly windy and rainy and misty so the weather chapped my face and lips a lot, so make sure to bring moisturizer.
