When you have a girl's trip booked and in your calendar, you spend the weeks up to said trip thinking about...well, everything. What to pack? Restaurant reservations? Clothing? Shopping? What shoes (...and more shoes)? Day activities? Hangover helpers? ...the list goes on. But once the plans are more or less laid, the only thing to really contemplate over in the weeks running up to departure is what will be in your bag(s). And since I happen to have the rare girls' trip on the calendar, it's time to start planning what will be in my bag. Take a peek.
