Making a Move (Part 2)

My last post gave some tips on how to prepare for a successful move and now I’d like to share with you some of my favorite go-to items for moving (and even for traveling)! If you can’t already tell, I am very excited to start this new chapter of my life (and to return back south). Ohio has been an interesting experience and has taught me a few things (like how much I dislike winter), but I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

As the packing begins, here are some of the items that are playing a key role in the process!

I love this striped weekender bag, it is the perfect carry-on size when flying and I recently used it on a trip to Alabama and Mississippi. It also is the perfect size to use for an overnight bag for the first night in a new home.

When it comes to packing the majority of my things, I prefer to use these plastic totes instead of boxes because I can keep using them over and over and they come in such cute colors! I also use them for under the bed and off-season clothes storage.

In recent years I have found myself doing more traveling, so I had been on the search for new luggage for quite some time and when I found this rose gold set, I knew my search was over. Not only is it beautiful, but it also makes identifying my luggage at the airport a breeze!

Finally, these Lilly Pulitzer market bags are a game-changer. I use them to  pack shoes, spare odds and ends, clothes, groceries, the list is endless. They are so sturdy that I have been using mine for years with no wear and tear (and let’s not forget to mention how adorable they are!).

Now it’s time for me to brave the rain and head to class!

Stay Fabulous,

Making a Move (Part 2)

A Few Christmas Eve Notes

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! These past few days have been full of cookie making and decorating for me and my sisters. I really cherish the time that I get to spend with them, and it has been a lot of fun. Our creativity was tested, and the results vary (as you can see below). However, to me, it’s not about how pretty they look (because they’ll just end up in our tummy’s anyways), but how much fun we had making them!

Here are some of the cookies we made (not pictured are the gingerbread)!

We found all of these recipes here.

And here are my amazing co-bakers and decorators:

Christmas came a little early for me this week! I received my much anticipated Monogram Box from Prep Perfect Monograms (you can get your own here).12431381_1244508502230304_1796137376_n

Today will be spent fetching my mom from the airport (after she has spent 4 hours in plane delays), packing up our bags to fly to Maryland, and spending time with the family. I hope everyone is able to spend Christmas Eve and/or Christmas day with loved ones!

I’ll be traveling a lot this coming week, so I might not get anything posted for a week or so! (Don’t worry though, I’ll be back!)

Stay Fabulous,

Julia
