THE BIG MOVE TO LA LA LAND!

When I first started thinking about packing my life up my left eyeball decided to twitch every single time! Questions went flying through my brain, "What on earth am I going to pack?", "How many pairs of shoes do I think I could fit?", "How do I take my whole wardrobe but not?" That was only three out of two thousand questions and thoughts I had shooting through my brain 2-3 times a day. 

When it came down to it I had to come to terms with the fact that I couldn't take everything with me (heart shattering) but how could I? I was moving to LA for god knows how long and lets face it, LA has shops.. good ones, so I figured life could go on!

One of the things I had to remember was I was moving to LA not New York, people in LA wear colour... major f***! I don't own colour as many Melbournian's would understand. What the efff was I going to do, let people look at me and think 'well she must have a funeral poor dear' so that's exactly what I planned on doing.

When I started pulling things out to pack I also had to remember LA weather, yes I was going into winter BUT it's still warm during the day (think Sydney) I needed to pack versatile pieces so I could mix and match to get the most out of my the things i had packed. I had to consider meetings, warm days, long trips in the car to locations, client consultations, exercise and just stuff to wear everyday on my days off. 

If this is you secretly whispering f*** to yourself 20 times a days because you just have no idea what to pack for your move overseas, or your three month vacay or just have no idea what to pack for a mini break then check out my pack list. Trust me you will no longer need to pull your hair out numerous times a day!
