All Packed Up

I am heading to France tomorrow night and I am really excited!

This time around, I am spending only a few days in Paris and then head to Marseille where according to this week weather forecast it will be warm and sunny!

I am not necessarily a last minute packer, but I always wait until the last minute to lock my luggage. So my luggage has been laying on the floor open for a week now and I have been strategizing. I usually tend to pack light for a few reasons: firstly, I know there is always shopping potential, (especially in France) but secondly, I am really trying to “minimize my wardrobe these days.

Nonetheless, there are essential items I keep in my suitcase I always like to carry.

Here is my list:

These lists are meant to be customize to your own need so feel free to add and substract items according to your taste and need.

I am currently trying to come up with a “stage uniform”. Something or rather a style that I will be able to quickly pick, that matches my figure, a signature style. I think it takes a while, and I will work on that seriously really soon.

Since I was unable to land other singing gig, I have decided to shoot a video and also take some footage for my vlog and Instagram page.

My set at L’Etage on the 3rd will be streamed live on my Facebook Page so I am trying to look great! Tune i
