#1 Start packing 6-months in advance.
This is fully necessary if you expect to remember everything that you need in order to be the center of attention while on vacation. It takes time to order all of your shoes, your wardrobe and accessories. You need time to plan the perfect low maintenance – yet glam hairstyles for your vacation. For many of us, this involves hair pieces and wigs. You’ll need time to order your FlightsInStilettos accessories or glam t-shirts from flightsinstilettos.com. When you’re a glam-traveler the more lead time for packing the better!
#2 Use a separate suitcase for EVERYTHING.
It doesn’t matter that you’re packing 5 suitcases for a weekend trip. What does matter is that you have everything that you need while on your trip – because the worst thing that can happen is that you realize you packed the silver shoes, but you wanted the gold shoes! So pack until you’re content that every possible wardrobe and shoe combination/ option is available to you on your trip. In this case more is better!
#3 Bring ALL of your makeup.
This doesn’t need any further explanation, either you’re glam and you get it or not.
#4 Oversee the wardrobe, shoes and accessories selections of your spouse or travel companion.
Your spouse or traveling companion’s wardrobe, shoes and accessories must compliment yours. Your travel companion can’t possibly walk around with beat-up sneakers, “DAD” jeans cut into shorts, and an old beat-up baseball cap just because you’re on vacation. And your female bestie can’t be seen wearing her gym clothes and house slippers! Oversee this process to ensure that your looks are complimentary of each other and that you two dazzle and spin heads together! Glam. Glam. Glam.
#5 Hit the gym religiously before your vacation.
Sure, you should be eating right and exercising anyway, but if you’re not – OK – get your hips in the gym regularly for 3 months prior to your vacation. It’s all about the pics. Do you really want to look back at your vacation pics and wish that you would have dedicated a little more time to building a better beach body? Heck, after the trip is over, resume your normal habits – but do what you have to do for the pics!!! This is crucial.
#6 Be a true friend and inspect your girls’ luggage before traveling.
I know, it’s hard to not want the spotlight for yourself, but if you’re doing a girls’ trip – it’s best that all of the girls look like they are of the same “squad”. It’s awful looking at pictures of girls’ trips and there’s that one friend in the pic and everyone is wondering why no one told her the truth.
#7 All About the Pics.
Whether it’s your spouse, your best friend or whomever, let them know upfront that 90% of THEIR vacation will be spent taking pictures of you. This is a basic human need and fundamental requirement that must be clarified when the vacation plans are discussed.
These rules are not meant to be taken seriously and are meant to be funny, unless of course, you’re a lot like me!
See you on a FlightInStilettos~
