Planning A Winter Getaway? Read This Packing Guide First!

I used to be horrible at packing. I’d compulsively throw in random things I liked at the moment, which led to packing too much, not to mention, inappropriately for the final destination. But, after becoming quite the wanderlust this past year (South Africa, Seychelles, and London to name a few), I’ve come up with my own list of packing rules that I always abide by. Now that I'm on my way to Paris, I'm packing my suitcase for the week ahead after a quick stop at T.J.Maxx for my last-minute packing essentials. If you're planning a winter getaway, check out my guide for a suitcase that has all the right ingredients, every time.
