One of the perks of having a sister is you can share EVERYTHING. Vern and I have become so close over the past few years that we have the same beauty regimen, we like the same food, we almost have the same eating habits, we use the same products and we know each other’s wants even without the other saying anything. That’s why packing has been easier for us because we don’t have to bring two of the a different kind anymore. While every girl’s toiletries and beauty kit requires more space than usual, atleast it’s just a piece of everything on our end! :P We’ve been looking for travel organizers that are both affordable, sturdy and that came in neutral colors to bring on our luggage. We’ve tried the more expensive ones but the OCness in us just can’t take too much prints of organizers all in one bag plus it hurts abit when it gets stained from spillage after paying so much money for pouches. We went to SM Department Store in Makati to prepare for our trip to Europe and came across SM ACCESSORIES again after a million years and saw how much they’ve grown! We were surprised to find travel organizers, speakers, headphones and even accessories for bags :) When we saw the aisle of black, gold and brown organizers, we immediately got a basket and filled it with the black ones! I even feel bad for the saleslady because we wiped out that part of her display. haha! Most of the items were even less than 200 pesos each… what a steal right?! :) if you’ve ever been curious as to how we organize our luggage, here it is:
We like to bring disposable underwear for our use at night instead of having to bring so much underwear that would take up more space on our luggage. We put all our make up in one container, shampoo and conditioner in another, our contact lenses and perfume in one, our beauty regimen for our face on it’s own and lastly, alcohol, moisturizer, sunblock and dry shampoo in one bag :) The containers are lined so we don’t have worry of the liquid items spilling on our luggage just in case anything happens while it’s in transit.
Hope this blogpost helps you on your next trip! :)
SM ACCESSORIES is available in all SM Department Stores nationwide.
