Welcome back to another blog from Trev n Jess.
So as most of you know, I’m in London and Trevor is in the USA so finally! Tuesday I’m off to Michigan to see Trevor! I’ll be out there for 3 months so it’ll be nice to spend some time with him and as well his family, I also can’t wait to do some blogging about the state. Eek! I’m so excited, so many mixed emotions at the moment it’s a little overwhelming but It’s not long now! can I get a whoop? haha.
And! I’m taking you guys along with me! Don’t worry! You’ll get to see some lovely pictures and hear about what we are getting up to!
If you have been to Michigan before or live in Michigan please feel free to list some tourist places in the comments and I’ll see how I get on visiting them.
So far I have packed pretty much most of my suitcase, I’m only taking one suitcase and then my handbag, which I think will be just enough, but by the time I’ve completely packed it.. that answer may change haha. Below are a few things that I have packed so far, things like (More winter clothing and little things like deodorant and little essentials I will be purchasing when I get there and things like towels and flannels I am able to use their) also guys please let me know if there is anything major I haven’t mentioned/shown for what I’m taking.. just incase that I have completely forgotten to pack something haha, every little suggestion counts.
Below you’ll see a picture of quite a lot of socks haha. As some of you may know from reading some of my previous blogs I LOVE socks you name it, cosy socks, patterned socks, coloured socks oh yeah! So I need some help picking 10 pairs of socks to take with me, it was a hard decision and I think I need your help haha. Let me know in the comments below what socks are your favorites and I’ll be sure to pack the popular suggestions! Thank you.
Yes I’ve made a checklist, Yes I’m adding more things to the list and Yes I made the checklist well in advance to actually going haha! I mean who doesn’t? haha.
Without further ado! Lets see what I’m packing!
Number 1 essential for your hand luggage or you’re not going anywhere…
I decided to use this little bag to put my boarding tickets and passport inside, it’s really important you’re organised before going on holiday abroad so you know how to access everything easily when you need them.
My coat I’ll be wearing on the way to the USA, which is aligned with fur around the hood and soft warm fur on the inside of the coat to offer extra insulation. It is from H&M if any of you are interested. When I am in Michigan I will also be wearing a proper winter coat.
Jumpers.. Jumpers and more jumpers! It’s Michigan in the winter! I need to keep warm haha. Jumpers are a must!
2 Thermals.. I will be getting more when I get to Michigan.
Okay so here we are.. the sock dilemma!
Yes I love my socks, Yes I probably have an addiction to buying ones with patterns on and yes I need help choosing which ones to take with me haha. Don’t worry, I’ll be buying some thermal socks to.
I have far too many and these aren’t even all of them I can assure you. Please can you list 5 or 10 of your favorite socks from the picture in the comments below so I can finally decide on which ones to take, that would really help haha.
Toilet Bag for little essentials. (I’ll be buying more when I get to the US)
Shower scrunchie, Shaver, Makeup wipes and a body spray.
Jewelry box – I haven’t used this box in ages haha, I’ve had it ever since I was a little girl and always used to take it abroad with me. I however have a new one which is slightly bigger but I didn’t think a bigger one would be necessary and this little pink one is just the right size. (My earrings are also inside)
Jeans, Leggings and thermal leggings! you name it! I also have snow pants waiting for me in Michigan.
Footwear – So I’m bringing my new slippers I got for christmas and I’m super excited to wear them because they are furry and comfy! The boots you can see is what I’m wearing to the USA, just because it’s appropriate for the weather conditions and moving around in. I’ve just recently bought these Nike shoes in the sale! which is a bonus because I can’t wait to test them out during my exercises and power walk. I will be getting some snow boots when I get to Michigan also.
Hat and Scarf
One of my favorite hats and scarfs at the moment!
The list could go on haha, underwear.. tops.. and lots of other little essentials too.
11. Hand Luggage
All of your essentials in one little bag in case you need them on the aeroplane! Below you’ll see what I’ve packed in mine!
As you can see I’ve packed my notepad and pen (To note down some blogging ideas – can never have too many haha) I’ve got a book “snow rose” which can I say I’m very excited to read! Phone, iPad and headphones (Music). A travel toothbrush and mini toothpaste by Colgate, it’s incredibly handy actually, I don’t think I’ve spent so much time looking into to how to maneuver a toothbrush as I have done with this one haha, It folds into a little box and you can open it up when you need to use it, very handy and suitable for travel, I like to feel as fresh as possible when out and about so a quick brush would be ideal. My tangle teezer! This brush is the best! if you haven’t got it.. get it, again suitable and ideal for travel as it’s small, light and can fit pretty much in your pocket or if not then in your bag and last but not least the most important one of all or I wouldn’t be going to Michigan haha my passport and documentation for my flight.
So I’ve shown you the main things that I’ve packed ready for my flight to Michigan, I have also packed tops to suit the winter and beginning of spring and I will be purchasing things such as snow boots, thick socks, gloves and more thermals to keep myself as warm as possible and as well as this the self-care essentials (deodorant, shampoo, showergel etc).
So the next time I’ll be blogging.. will be.. drum roll haha.. In Michigan!
