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.
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.
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.
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.
One 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 🙂
