Getting Austin-Ready

I’m an obsessive planner. My boyfriend says that I even “plan to plan”. I’m not denying it because it makes me happy. It keeps my anxiety at bay and helps me feel organized.

My Packing List. Probably one of my most embarrassing habits.

In 1 day we begin our travel to Austin for SXSW. In fear of people thinking I am actually prepared I haven’t actually started packing. I have started putting aside the accessories and gadgets I want to bring.

As you know, I love to support & promote local companies so I am more than delighted to bring little dashes of Toronto on my trip. Since SXSW is 1 part music, 1 part party and 2 parts fashion, I’m bringing some fun companies to help me look good & feel good.

20120310-081918.jpgI have narrowed down exactly which accessories I’ll be bringing.
Since I will be keeping my clothing simple in order to pack light, I’ll be using jewellery and accessories to play up my outfits.

But first: my technology gets vacation-ready. Since I plan to tweet & blog on my trip, my iPad and iPhone got a little makeover courtesy of Gelaskins.

iPad is wearing Gelaskins iPad skin in Tube Socks.
Bathroom selfies just got colourful!

I’m packing some arm candy courtesy of helloberry and IronPlume.

I love these bracelets. I want one in every colour! I have my heart set on this one next.

Custom-made “Winter” bracelet by IronPlume. Love the interlaced leather detail!
Also pictured here is a Goody Double Wear elastic. Cute accessory and is a great hair tie that I won’t have to dig through my purse for.

20120310-081845.jpgOne last delivery to pack! A cute necklace from Fredrick Prince.
She had so many cute pocket-watch necklaces I thought would be perfect for my trip but I chose this “Gold Treasure” piece because it’s probably the most versatile. I will be able to dress it up or down.

Carly at IronPlume is also sending me with some hair bling (a feather extension I can clip in on my own) and a native-inspired feather necklace. Thanks to her I’m Texas-ready!

And of course, I will be packing my latest fave beauty essentials.

I am so looking forward to bringing you on my trip with me via blog πŸ™‚
