All the tips

Virginie Dhello : Vee
I always carry a complete outfit and a washbag with my miniature products in the cabin in case my luggage gets lost! When I travel 48 hours, I try to bring a dress or pants outfit that can be worn in two different ways, so I am well prepared for any eventuality. Otherwise, the last thing I put in the suitcase is my trench

I recycle the contents: for example, I roll-up my iPod headphones and put them in a little metal “Hello Kitty” candy box, or in one of the little silk and cotton jewellery bags from Aurélie Bidermann. For hygiene reasons, shoes are always packed one by one in garment bags. And to avoid creasing delicate clothes, I fold them in sheets of tissue paper or I put them in one of the very thin plastic bags that you get from the dry cleaner

To avoid being overpacked upon return, I always leave some space in my suitcase. One always brings things back from a journey. Always take the time to think about each item, each piece of clothing that you take with you and don’t make any hasty decisions. Take plastic zip bags (in several sizes) to bring back spices and produce bought in local markets to avoid them spilling in your suitcase or leaving an undesireable smell on your clothes ! I never forget my camera or my notebooks. They enable me to enrich my “secret garden” and remember the people I have met

When planning a trip, I always have a quick look on the site www.mybestadressbook.com. I ask my friends for recommendations and consider the weather. I always try to personalise my suitcase, by putting a little recognisable object on the handle, ever since the day I found myself with someone else suitcase that was filled with nappies and powdered milk! Sometimes, I add a bundle of padlocks

Packing my suitcase is a moment of great stress and anxiety. However, I always do it at the last minute and it is always ready in ten minutes. With its flashy colours, my bag is easily spotted on airport tarmacs. And it has less risk of being stolen

I travel light and save space to bring things back, particularly for my children. I always take carry-on baggage to avoid check-in and save time. I make sure that my things are well folded and prioritise my least wrinkle-prone outfits. Always check the weather of your destination. And don’t forget to bring some warm clothing because of air conditioning
