How many times have you found yourself trying to cram things into your suitcase just hours or minutes before you head to the airport?  Have you ever stood there anxiously waiting to see if your suitcase goes over the weight limit?  Vacations are supposed to be fun, but many of us spend our time worrying about what to pack when we should be getting into vacation mode early with a relaxing pedicure.  If you’re thinking of escaping somewhere warm and sunny to shake the winter blues, avoid the last minute frenzied packing and airport luggage weigh-in stress with the following tips for packing like a pro.

  1. Friend or Foe: Shoes are not your friend.  They take up a lot of valuable real estate in your suitcase, and as hard as it may be to leave behind those fabulous stilettos, you only need a couple of pairs that you can wear multiple times.  Resorts in sunny locales tend to be pretty casual—another good reason to leave the extra heels behind.  Flats or sandals with gems, bows, or straps are dressy yet lightweight and take up less room in your bag.
  2. Don’t Delay:  Don’t procrastinate when it comes to packing.  It is infinitely harder to practice restraint when you only have an hour left until you have to catch your flight.  Pack a few days before your trip, and then take a hard look at what you’ve packed the night before you leave.  Most likely you will find that you overpacked on the first go around and can remove a few things to help lighten your load.  If you need more incentive to avoid expensive airport fees, remember you’ll need the extra room for all of your souvenirs and vacation shopping.
  3. Reduce, reuse, recycle: Make this your motto when you travel.  Bring floaty summer dresses that look chic with flats or sandals during the day but that can be paired with a belt, clutch and great heels (the only pair you brought!) for dinner out.  Stick with one color palette so that you can cut back on shoes.  Bring one skirt and one pair of shorts and change up the look with different tops.  Or bring a tunic that can be a cover up/short dress during the day and dressed up with white pants at night.
  4. Downsize: Put your bath & body products (don’t forget sunscreen!) in small, reuseable travel-size bottles.  Cut down on the amount of makeup you bring—your tan will give you great color!  Plan to use the hairdryer at the resort or let your hair air dry and use some product to create beachy waves.
  5. Carry On: Always keep one outfit in your carry on.  A sundress, swimsuit, bra & panties should stay with you at all times.  Make sure the shoes you are traveling in and the cardigan you are wearing on the plane match in case your luggage goes missing.  This will ensure you head straight to the pool bar for a much needed drink when you arrive rather than that overpriced hotel boutique full of clothes you wouldn’t dream of wearing.

The Key to Your Powerful Brand Image

More often than not, each piece of your brand image was created when you needed it, but not altogether in a strategic fashion. Your image may look fine, but does fine help you grow?

Eventually as you scale, your image foundation cracks, and the way your business presents itself no longer helps propel growth – costing you time and money to fix.

When you unlock your brand power, you get to pick and choose how people perceive you and your brand.

Our Image Mastery System™ takes the 5 key brand components that you already have and ties them together in a way that amplifies your results and achieves your vision.

I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.

Donna Terrell, Criminal Defense Attorney

It is hard to explain why Lee is so brilliant at what she does because it is almost like magic. She pierces through your personality and reflects who you are in what you wear. She does not just pick out great clothes – she picks an outwardly appearance that creates a comfort zone while also allowing the world to see the real you.

Nate Casey, Entrepreneur

Working with Lee has dramatically increased my revenue, not because of what I’m wearing but because of how I show up when I am dressed like my future self.

Angela Lauria, The Difference Press

When I reflect on who I was before working with Lee, I see that everything about me was a muted version of who I am today. And thanks to Lee’s incredible gift, I’m me. I now show up every single day: as the thought-leader Lee helped me dress to become (and be).

Hillary Walsh, Esq., New Frontier Immigration Law

Thank YOU! It was such a fantastic mini-class you took us through. You got everyone really into it! I can hardly believe that I actually had to cut them all off. You are a force! We are very lucky to have had the benefit of your help and we’re all better for it.

Megan Graves, Client Happiness & Team Happiness Coordinator, Upleveling Your Business

You are amazing!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about our conversation all day and this is just brilliant – you are a strategist and creative genius. Your vision completely resonates with me. I am so grateful for you, Lee.

Kelly McGrath, Esq., Kelly McGrath Law

Lee had a surprising way about her that uncovered my deeper self, my reason for being, and encoded it onto my wardrobe like a symbol—a moment-by-moment reminder of who I am, and what I’m here to do. Her brilliance crept up on me; I didn’t realize it was her behind the changes in my life until months afterwards. Now, I am able to approach everything I do from a place of power.

Jonathan Sparks, Esq. Sparks Law

Lee brings to life a vision bigger than I imagined. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on my personal brand, photo shoot strategy, and the brand experience of events for my non-profit. Through each piece she’s helped me grow as a leader and an organization. I love having her on my team.
