The Ultimate Guide to Packing up your Clothes for a Move

Moving house is great, until the time comes for you to sort through all of your clothes. You may think that it’s okay to just put them all in a suitcase and throw it in the back of your car. Although there is nothing wrong with this, it is a great way for you to have a ton of ironing to do when you arrive. If you want to pack up your clothes and fashionable accessories effectively then we’ve got you covered.


Lay Out your Clothes

Over the years, you may have accumulated clothes that you just don’t need anymore. One way

for you to get around this would be for you to put all of your clothes on the bed and only pick up the things that you have worn in the last 5-6 months. Sure, you may have some formal dresswear that you need to keep, but this is a great rule of thumb. If you need to decorate your new property, pack an old t-shirt as well. When you have done this, put your clothes into categories such as everyday wear and then clothes that you won’t need for a while. This will make it way easier for when you arrive at your new property because you can easily get changed without having to route through endless boxes.

Suitcases are Necessary

If you have a suitcase then use it! You’ll have to take it with you anyway and it is a brilliant way for you to stop getting your clothes all creased. You may want to put things like toiletries, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and shaving foam in this bag as well, as this will provide you with your essentials as soon as you arrive. When packing your clothes, you’ll get way more in the bag if you take your time and fold them properly. When you do this, you can easily have way more room left over at the end of the day and you can also really save yourself time in the future.

Fragile Items

If you are moving house with local movers then you won’t have to worry about this at all, but if you are moving yourself then you may need to put some of your more fragile items in the suitcase that you have. You can even use your clothes to wrap up some of your more delicate decorations as well. After all, when you are moving yourself, there is a high chance that you will experience some breakages along the way and this can help to stop all of that from happening. Your local movers however, will know exactly how to move your items to minimise breakages and they will probably have years of experience as well so you won’t have to worry about anything at all there.


So when moving your clothes, there are plenty of things that you can do to try to save yourself a lot of time and when you follow the above tips, you shouldn’t have a problem with your move at all.

The Kiddies Want A Dog

I have previously written about the kiddies wanting a pet. They have wanted a pet for as long as I can remember, and they have finally decided it is a dog they want. I have never had a pet in my life. Growing up, my pets were my teddies and dolls, so the idea of children having a pet is all new to me.  I am not completely against the kids having a dog, but I still think they are too young to understand the responsibility of having a dog or any kind of pet.

Just so you get the right picture, my daughter loves dogs because she thinks they are so cute. And my son loves dogs because they bark 😃

Since I am going to take the backseat when it comes to caring for this pet, they have to be ready to the handle the basics. Which means we are going to have to wait a few more years. While we are waiting for the years to go by, I have been shopping around for some dog essentials for when we do get one. I believe if you are going to have a dog or any other pet, you should provide a great home for it. Which is why I was happy to stumble upon the Raised by Humans website. This brand has some of the most colourful dog beds I have ever seen.


Metric Mattress Dog Bed £55

This designer dog bed by Raised by Humans would definitely add a splash of colour to our living room. It looks very comfy and I love the bright colours on it. I also like the fact that the cover is removable and machine washable.


Metric Designer Doughnut Dog Bed £35

This Metric Designer Doughnut Dog Bed also looks very comfortable. It also has an easy to clean cover made from 100% polyester. I love the design a lot.


Good to have pet brands like Raised by Humans think outside the box when it comes to designing. Most pet brands sacrifice design for convenience, but not RBH. Their fresh take on design sets them apart from the rest of the pet brands that primarily have monochrome and tartan designs, which can be a bit of a bore. A splash of colour is good when it comes to home decor and I think dog beds also serve as home decor as they are part of the furniture as well as an essential for the dog.

Having a colourful well designed dog bed is great for the dog and the home. It adds some fun, character and colour to the interior decor, which is amazing. I also like the memory foam technology, waterproofing features of Raised by Humans dog beds.


What do you think of these items? What age did your kids get a dog?

Style Icon – Céline Dion

I have been a huge fan of Céline Dion for as long as I can remember. Her voice is so strong and amazing. I remember having all her albums back in the day. This legend has gone a bit quiet in the last couple of years but her music will live on forever and so will her amazing fashion sense. This style icon has an amazing wardrobe with stylish pieces and accessories and she knows how to wear them.

For those who do not know who Céline Dion is, she is a multiple award-winning French-Canadian singer known all over the world for her amazing voice. One of my favourite songs from her is – My Heart will go on. I love that song so much.

I started paying attention to Céline Dion’s personal style some years ago. If I was to put a date on it, I would say in the summer of 2016. I hear the person behind her new look is a fashion stylist known as Law Roach. This stylist is also the brain behind Zendaya’s amazing style, so I guess Dion is in good hands.

Céline Dion has an amazing body shape so most pieces tend to look great on her. She also knows how best to match her pieces and accessories, and has an amazing carriage.

I know many celebrities with a huge wardrobe filled with designer items and have some of the best stylists at their disposal, but with all the resources available, these celebrities never look good. So it is really not about what they have but what they do with what they have.

What I love about Céline Dion is the fact that she can look glamorous wearing almost anything. She can leave her house wearing pieces and accessories from the 90s, and look amazing. That is what I call a Style Icon. Someone who wears her clothes and not the other way round. It is hard to believe this stylish woman is 50 years old already. She could easily pass for a woman in her 40s.


What do you think of Céline Dion as a style icon?
