Episode 6 Of The Franco-Files – How To Pack Lightly


Pack Lightly

The latest Franco-Files episode is a bit different. Why? Because I don’t I have a guest. Nope, it’s just me sharing my tips on how to pack lightly.

I’ve been travelling a lot for work lately. And Scotty and I are about to head back to Canada which means that the need to pack lightly has been a regular topic of conversation lately.

When I mention how lightly I pack I’m usually met with question about how I manage it. So I thought I’d record my best advice for anyone out there who is keen to pack lightly.

In this episode I cover so many topics. I discuss the five things I never leave home without (and the one thing I never pack). I also talk about colour palettes, outfit creation and multi-use products.

How To Pack Lightly – Packing Favourites I Chat About

Shoes are always a bother to pack. They are generally bulky and heavy, unless you seek out shoes made for travellers. The shoes I mention are one of my favourite shoe brands for travel, Rollie Nation.

And when I speak of the makeup brand Trinny London, the ‘she’ I reference is the one and only Trinny Woodall. Back in the day, Trinny was one half of the well known makeover duo, simply known as Trinny and Susannah. I loved her advice back then, and I’m also a fan of her latest work. The makeup is ideal for those of us who want to pack lightly. And her social media accounts are super entertaining.

And if you are keen to see the outfits I put together during our nine week visit to France, check them out in our Instagram story highlights.
