What I Packed For…. LONDON!


Suitcase contents: Jimmy Choo sparkle heels // similar YSL bag // blanket scarf

Guess what y'all! I'm writing this blog post from a Starbucks in LONDON!! I arrived early this morning (2 a.m. my time, but 7 a.m. London time). My plan was to sleep on the plane, but I was so excited that I couldn't fall asleep. Anyways! I snapped a few photos while I was packing yesterday to show you what I was bringing along with me. Let's start with this Delsey luggage… I ordered it online a few weeks before the trip & after traveling with it, I can honestly say I'm SO impressed with the quality. Not only is it gorgeous, but it's durable, lightweight, has a built-in lock system, AND has the most incredible wheels of any suitcase, ever. I only say that because I have wheeled a lot of suitcases through airports & some of them are very hard to maneuver! But this luggage seems to float on air. If you're worried about it being white, don't be - it has a hard outer shell which can be easily cleaned. I also love this jewelry case for packing my nice jewelry. It has a hard outer shell & a special lining that prevents your jewelry from being tarnished.

As for the actual content of my suitcases, I will tell you that a lot of it is holiday-themed! Most of London is already decorated for Christmas… I'm in heaven right now sipping a hot chocolate from Starbucks & listening to the Christmas music they're playing. :)

I'll be back tomorrow with another London post, in the meantime you can follow along on snapchat, twitter & instagram (my username on all three is @cmcoving!).

  25. If you want to branch out from Starbucks, you must try AMT coffee, it's a UK chain. Try a coconut milk steamer or a Froffee (so much better than frappuccinos!) Have fun! I used to live there and am dying to go back for a visit so I'm going to live vicariously through your posts.
