Traveling…

Can someone explain to me how in the hairy honkin’ heck people travel with only one suitcase?

I am heading on a 10 day trip and it was “suggested” I pack light! Anyone who knows me knows there ain’t nothin’ light about this Diva!

Apparently no one in my circle of friend’s does costume changes throughout the day like I do. How dull!

There is the “Spend the Morning Wandering around the House” outfit.

My “I Am Showered and Dressed for the Day” outfit.

The “This Is Adequate Attire for the Public” outfit.

Then my “Lounge Wear Is Life” outfit.

And depending on if I leave the house again there is my “I Shall Not Be Seen in the Same Clothes Twice in One Day” outfit.

Each complete with makeup, hair, jewelry and shoes.

Allegedly this is not normal!

Allegedly I am not a movie star.

Allegedly the average human being does NOT plan their day around wardrobe changes and refreshed makeup stops.

Allegedly I am a weirdo. Well dressed, yes. But a weirdo none the less.

Well excuse me for wanting to look magnificent at all times!

So here I am. Instead of one suitcase for clothes, one for shoes and boots, one for makeup and hair preparedness; I am travelling light. One suitcase for clothes and shoes, and one small bag for makeup, hair dryer and general items for my Maintenance of Fabulousness. I only brought 3 pairs of shoes. And as for makeup? Sigh…instead of my seven or so shades of lipstick I have two. And I packed only one eye shadow palette. One! O-N-E!!!  (I feel faint…)

Holy Sephora people! I am going to be BARE ASS NAKED!!

I don’t get how you people do this?! It takes a hell of a lot to make me…well…ME! There are a lot of layers to making Pammy the Fabulous Diva she is. I cannot count on just my amazing personality!

Good god people! I only brought one purse with me!

I could lose my Diva membership!

Gulp!

Wish me luck my lovelies! I will be repeating outfits on this trip. Something I never do. It feels unnatural.

Deep breath! I can do this. Other people do this. I don’t know how but they seem to survive with two shirts, a pair of pants and just using Chapstick as lipstick. Seems weird but hey! Who am I to judge?

(Who am I? I’m Pamela! I am always judging!)

  1. I love and live this! My husband tells people that traveling with me is like being a bellboy for Diana Ross. I think it’s important to have three outfit options per day!

    When even I realize that I’ve gotten out of hand with it, I like to quote Lisa from Dirty Dancing, when she’s getting ready for dinner one night and very snottily says to the mom, “Where is my. Beige. Iridescent. LIPSTICK?” 😁

    Loving your blog!

    • Thank you for reading!! I am so enjoying your blog as well! You are a hoot! And! At least you have a husband to schlep your bags for you. I hand carry my own. Ugh! And trust me-this packing light crap was quite difficult! I may need therapy to recover. I prefer to follow the advice of Freddie Mercury, “I dress to kill, but tastefully.”
