I know I keep going on and on about my trip to London this weekend, but I think you can all relate to the excitement before a really cool trip. I'm a really organized person who likes to plan everything a thousand years ahead. Something I really enjoy is planning what to take with me when I travel. If you're flying, you know you can't take too much with you and god know you don't want to exceed your weight limit. So it's usually really hard for a beauty junkie to downsize her essentials, but to me it's quite simple. I'll share my tips with you so you don't have to worry about weighing down your luggage, especially if you're planning to do some serious shopping.

Only take your essential makeup
Unless you have a really extravagant event to go to every night, do you honestly think you'll be needing 5 lipsticks? If you're visiting a really cool place for the first time, you probably don't even have time to think about touch ups. Take an everyday lipstick, something cool and bright to spice things up and a simple lip gloss if you're using one. Same goes with everything else too - believe me, you'll live if you only take one blush, one bronzer etc. Really think what are your essentials and only allow them to travel with you.
Take your samples with you
Everyone has at least some little samples they haven't used. Now is the time to use them up. If you have any testers, just take these with you. You can throw away the packaging and not worry about any space or weigh issues. But be careful - if you have a really sensitive or picky skin, you should probably stick to your usual routine. Read the next tip. ;)

Travel size if you can!
Little travel size pots and bottles are easy to find in any beauty store so you can pour your shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotions etc in them and you don't have to take the full products with you. I always keep little pots and bottles for that purpose. Also, many stores sell products in travel size as well, so you can just buy your essentials in travel size.

Leave your heavy perfume bottles at home
If you have a little sample of perfume you like, just take it with you. I would also recommend looking into Travalo's. I don't have one yet, but it's basically a little refillable perfume bottle you can easily carry in your handbag. You can read more about Travalos HERE. It's a really clever idea and I'm planning on getting one myself.

Take your almost-empties!
You have a tube of body lotion with 2-3 uses left? A shampoo bottle that can get your hair clean and shiny for maybe five more times? Take them with you - you can use up the product and throw away the packaging while you're there. Simple!

I hope these tips were somewhat useful. If you have any cool travel tips, please share them in the comments. :)

Mis puutub meigi- ja ilutoodetesse, siis nädalaks või kauemaks reisile minnes on päris raske otsustada, mida võtta ja mida jätta - eriti kui sa arvad, et vajad igaks õhtuks erinevat huulepulka. Aga kui sa ei taha ülekilode eest hingehinda maksta ja soovid kohvri võimalikult tühjaks jätta, tasuks mõned nõuanded kõrva taha panna.

Võta kaasa vaid vajalikud meigividinad!
Kui sa pole just sada protsenti kindel, et viskad sussid püsti, kui iga päev erinevat huulepulka ei saa kanda, siis pole mingit vabandust, miks sa peaksid mõnda sama otstarbega eset võtma kaasa topelt või enam. Vali basic esemed, mis sinu jaoks alati töötavad.

Pista sämplid kotti
Kõigil naistel koguneb mingil hetkel sahtlisse hunnik väikeseid sämpleid. Vali neist mõned välja ja võta kaasa - pakendi saab ära visata ja mingit lisakaalu pole. Eriti head oleks näiteks šampoonipudeli asemel mitu väikest pakikest kaasa haarata.

Reisisuuruseid ei mõeldud asjata välja
Paljudel toodetel on olemas ka väikesed minisuurused. Nende kohta kehtib nüüd sama jutt, mis eelmises punktis sämplite kohta ütlesin. Kahjuks pole Eestis reisisuuruste tegemine veel nii levinud, aga USA-s ja Inglismaal on igast viiendast tootest ka minivariant olemas.

Jäta rasked parfüümipudelid koju
Kui oled saanud mõnusaid väikeseid proovipudelikesi, siis võta hoopis need kaasa. Samas, kui sul on kindel signatuurlõhn, millega tunned end poolikuna, siis unusta see nõuanne. :D

Võta kaasa oma peaaegu-tühjad
Kreemituubis on veel 2-43 kasutuskorda alles või šampoonipudelis piisakesi täpselt reisiaja jagu? Võta need kaasa ja viska tühjad pakendid seal minema. :)

Loodan, et neist nõuannetest oli vähemalt kellelegi pisut abi. Kui tead veel mingeid kavalaid mooduseid kohver šoppamise tarvis võimalikult kergeks ja tühjaks jätta, anna teada. :)
