I have planned my next trip back already. Next time for Volcanos, Surfing and Sun Tanning.

Pinterest was an amazing resource while I was planning this trip.  There were so many tips and tricks that I used both for packing and organising my trip.  I made a whole board dedicated to this vacation.  I used it to pin shopping that I wanted to do, places to do, travel books.  There are also some packing tips that appear on my board titled Travel.

The best ideas for packing are on the travel board.  I actually too hiking shoes this time, which is generally something I would never do, I usually take ballet flats and pluggers (flip flops).  So I thought I should actually pack them so they don’t get dirt on my actual clothes.  I saw this pin on Real Simple, and decided to put all my shoes in shower caps.  It worked a treat!  I bought a pkt of 6 for $2 at the cheap store as well as collected some from a hotel that I had stayed at a little while ago.

This is what my shoes ended up looking like

I also gave this a go with my earrings, from over at The Travel Writers Life, I don’t have any photos (sorry) but the buttons I had that were from a jar of my Granny’s old buttons didn’t really work.  They are really old and were rounded on the back not flat.  The idea is really great, but I will be getting some different buttons before I try it again.

Now I have long hair, well not as long as it used to be, but still…

I HATE losing my hair pins, especially when I am away! So when I cam across this idea I fell in LOVE!  It comes from over at Simply Frugal and it is the best idea for storing hair pins.  I don’t normally use tic tacs (i’m more of a gum girl) but for this project I was more than happy to give up the gum for a little bit.  I decorated mine in a little more of an entertaining fashion because the sticker didn’t come off to well.  I used some of the Scotch Duct Tape, that is now available here in Australia, to decorate the outside of the container.

This was the final result and I think it looks pretty great!

I also found this outfit that I loved and managed to pull off on the flight over to Hawaii.  Again I don’t have a photo but this is the link, and the outfit looks super cute 🙂 This is the link over at Polyvore.

Well I have to figure out groceries for the next few days as we are having a long weekend for Labour day on Monday! Woohoo!

Have a great weekend!
