MUJI travel bottles to the rescue!!
Yay! Everything fits!
I had a fabulous time in Paris last week! The weather was perfect and I had a great time showing my mom and brother around the beautiful city. They came to London with huge American suitcases... so we had to check one suitcase this trip. I LOATHE checking suitcases!! I guess it's because I've had some bad experiences... lost luggage, ripped luggage, etc. You name it, I've probably experienced it! So, I always pack light! However, since I moved to Europe, I've realized that some European airlines only allow you to bring up to 22 lbs in your carry on... CRAZY! My suitcase itself is roughly 7 lbs!
If I had to pack all the products I use on a daily basis (forgetting the 3 oz liquid regulation for one second), I could fill almost half of my suitcase with products. I had to lighten up or I won't be able to pack clothes or shoes!! I found some travel bottles from MUJI that cut my load by 60%! The Japanese have got packing down to a science! MUJI also sells labels for the bottles, but these are personalized by yours truly. :)
I filled MUJI's PE 50g Tubes ($2.25 or £1.50) with:
MUJI PE 30g Tube ($1.95 or £1.25) with:
MUJI 30g Cream Case ($2.95 or £1.75) with:
MUJI PET 30ml Cylinder Spray Bottle ($4.25 or £2.50) with:
MUJI PET Bottles with Aluminum Cap (£1.95) with:
Other products I always pack are my Clarisonic Mia2, Sonicare toothbrush, trial size Balenciaga Paris perfume (so fitting!), Nivea Soft lotion, La Mer SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid, trial size SKII Essence, Cle de Peau Anti-Wrinkle Eye Contour Balm, La Roche Posay SPF 50 Lotion, Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Drying Nail Polish Pen, Schick Quattro Razor, Degree Expert Protection Deodorant, MUJI Hair Turban, Glide Floss, Toothpaste, Eye Drops, Tampon, Nail File, Q-Tips, Cotton Pads, and Band-Aids.
And the best part is that they all fit my cute light blue toiletry bag! Now, more space for my clothes and shoes!! :) -lulu
