Packing for Canary islands 2015

packing for canary islands
I think I have said it multiple times before- in less than 2 days I'll be traveling to the beautiful Canary islands, more specifically to the island of Tenerife. And because of that I decided to write a packing post (I actually did one last year as well- if you are interested check it out here). I did decide to pack a little early just because the next few days are going to be really busy for me!
It was really tough to sort out all of my summer clothes, because, honestly, I just wanted to take everything with me! But since I am traveling with Ryanair, they only allow 10kg in the cabin baggage, therefore, I had to make some hard dedicions!
LV
Man liekas, ka jau diezgan daudzas reizes savā blogā esmu pieminējusi to, ka jau nedaudz mazāk kā pēc trim dienām es būšu ceļā uz Kanāriju salām, jeb precīzāk uz Tenerifes salu. Un tā, kā es izlidoju jau sestdien vakarā, es nolēmu uzrakstīt rakstu par manu kravāšanos procesu ( īstenībā šādu rakstu es izveidoju arī pagājušo gad, tāpēc, ja esi ieinteresēts/a vari to aplūkot šeit) Koferi es sāku krāmēt jau diezgan laicīgi, jo zināju, ka man nākamās dažas dienas būs patiešām ļoti, ļoti aizņemtas- kā arī tas noņems pēdējās dienas stresu!
Bija tiešām grūti iziet cauri visām manām vasaras drēbēm un izvēlēties tās lietas, kuras es ņemšu līdzi, jo, godīgi sakot lielāko daļu sanāks atstāt mājās! Es lidošu ar Ryanair un rokas bagāžā ir atļauts ņemt līdzi tikai 10kg, līdz ar to, kā jau teicu, šķirošana bija patiešām laikietilpīgs process!

bikinis for a tropical resort
I guess the most important thing that you have to bring when traveling to Canary islands are the bikinis! I have decided to take with me 4 bikinis- two triangle ones and two bandeau ones as I have found out that these types of swimsuits flatter my body the most!

Laikam pati svarīgākā lieta, kas ir jāpaņem līdzi ceļojot uz Kanāriju salām ir peldkostīmi! Šoreiz sev līdzi ņemšu četrus peldkostīmus- divus trīstūrveida un divus "bandeau" tipa peldkostīmus, jo šāda veida peldkostīmi, manuprāt, uz mana auguma izskatās vislabāk!
head pieces from hm
I have been waiting to wear those head pieces again ever since summer! I just think that resort is a really great place in which to go crazy with accessories!

Jau kopš pagājušā gada vasaras nevarēju sagaidīt, kad atkal varēšu uzlikt šos matu aksesuārus! Manuprāt, kūrorti ir lieliska vieta, kur izpausties ar vasarīgiem aksesuāriem!
outfit ideas for tropical vacation
packing for canary islands
The easiest way for me to pack my suitcase is when I lay down all my clothes on the bed and decide which items go well with each other and would be make amazing outfits if worn together! Since I am planning on bringing only 10kg hand baggage with me, it is very crucial to choose the right clothes and not end up with a pile of clothes that you cannot wear together! Therefore, in the two pictures above you can see my 2 possible future outfits!

Visvieglākais veids kā es parasti sakrāmēju savu koferi ir tad, ja pirms tam izklāju visas savas drēbes ( piemērotās priekš ceļojuma, nevis visu skapi :D ) un izvēlos tās lietas, kuras ir iespējams savilkt kopā un kas beigās veidotu lieliskus outfitus! Tā kā es līdzi ņemu tikai 10kg rokas bagāžu, ir ļoti, ļoti svarīgi tas, ka es izvēlos pareizās drēbes, jo es nevēlos gala mērķī apjaust, ka man ir pilns koferis ar drēbēm, kas nesader viena ar otru! Līdz ar to, vari apskatīt divus iespējamos nākotnes outfitus divās bildēs virs šī teksta!
packing bags for shoes jewelry and underwear
For many years I have put my lingerie, shoes and accessories in the most random bags, but this time, I decided to get a bit more organized and bought this traveling kit at H&M few days ago! I just think that they are truly marvelous at their simplicity and will definitely ease up the packing and unpacking process!

Pēdējās reizes, kad es ceļoju ar lidmašīnu es savu apakšveļu, kurpes un aksesuārus iegrūdu visdažādākajos maisiņos īpaši par to nepiedomājot, bet šoreiz es nolēmu būt nedaudz organizētāka un nopirku šo ceļojumu komplektu H&M pāris dienas atpakaļ! Manuprāt, šādi auduma maisiņi ir patiešām ļoti lietderīgi un man iepatikās to vienkāršība!
hm loves coachella collection
I am super excited about the launch of H&M Loves Coachella collection in 26th of March, therefore, me and H&M teamed up and I got the opportunity to bring some items from this collection with me on vacation and later show them off to you in my Canary island outfit posts! Can't wait!

Es nevaru sagaidīt H&M Loves Coachella kolekciju, kas parādīsies veikalos no 26. marta, un tāpēc mans blogs un H&M izveidoja nelielu sadarbību, jeb man bija iespēja paņemt pāris lietas no šīs kolekcijas sev līdzi uz Kanāriju salām un vēlāk atrādīt tās savos Kanāriju salu outfit rakstos!
samsung galaxy s4
aztec print phone case
I would never leave the country without my reliable Samsung Galaxy S4, which as of right now has a new home- aztec print phone case! My smartphone will be a really great help to kill the boredom on the plane- I usually listen to music or play some games that I have downloaded on Play Store beforehands! I am still pretty obsessed with the game 2048- I still have not gone till the end, even though, I have been so close! The struggle is real :D

Es nekad nepamestu valsti bez sava uzticamā Samsung Galaxy S4 viedtālruņa, kurš pašlaik ir atradis jaunas mājas- acteku stila raksta vāciņā! Mans viedtālrunis būs lielisks palīgs brīžos, kad aiz garlaicības vairs nezināšu ko iesākt- visbiežāk es klausos mūziku, vai spēlēju spēles, kuras pirms tam esmu lejupielādējusi telefonā. Vēl joprojām esmu lielā fanā par spēli 2048- ļoti daudzas reizes esmu bijusi tik tuvu, lai uzvarētu, bet es nepadošos līdz nesasniegšu šo skaitli! :D
what to wear in an airport
This is the outfit I am intending on wearing to the airport and while on the plane! I chose to wear comfy and stretchy high waisted jeans with a cozy sweatshirt and really comfortable and light sneakers! I also decided to throw on a leather jacket and a big scarf that can be used as a mini blanket, since I am staying overnight at the London Stansted airport! 

Šajā bildē redzamās drēbes esmu plānojusi vilkt gan dodoties uz lidostu, gan arī pašā lidmašīnā! Es izvēlējos ērtas un staipīgas paaugstinātās jostas vietas džinsas ar mājīgu džemperi, kā arī ērtas un ļoti vieglas sporta kurpes! Pa virsu uzmetīšu ādas jaku, kā arī lielu un siltu šalli, kas nepieciešamības gadījumā var tikt izmantota kā neliela sega- jāpiemin, ka Londonas Stanstedas lidostā būs jāpaliek sešas stundas pa nakti un cik esmu dzirdējusi atsauksmes, lidostās naktīs paliek diezgan vēss!
how to pack liquids when traveling
Rules in airports are really, really strict when it comes to liquids, therefore, I almost searched through half Riga to find these 1 litre plastic bags, I did end up finding them at the drug store! When it comes to traveling I always bring out all the mini product packagings from my storages and product samples that I have received in various ways as they are the most convenient way of transporting skincare makeup for few days! I have also bought the mini plastic bottles in which you can pour the product from the original packaging! These bottles are very cheap and you can find them in almost every drugstore + they are very convenient!

Lidostas noteikumi šķidrumu pārvadāšanai ir ļoti strikti, tāpēc es jau laicīgi centos sameklēt 1 litra plastikāta maisiņus- sanāca beigās gandrīz pa pusi Rīgas tos meklēt, bet beigās atradu tos veikalā Drogas! Ceļojumos- gan tuvākos, gan tālākos parasti cenšos līdzi ņemt produktus, kas ir maza izmēra iepakojumos, vai pat produktu paraudziņus, jo tie aizņem ļoti maz vietas un nodrošina ar pietiekošu produkta daudzumu priekš pāris atvaļinājuma dienām! Kā arī vēl papildus tam esmu iegādājusies mazās plastmasas pudelītes, kurās vari pārliet šķidrumu no oriģinālajiem lielajiem iepakojumiem- atrodamas gandrīz visās Drogās!
vacation sunglasses marc jacobs
Ok, what I know is that I for sure want to take way too many sunglasses with me, I don't think I'll need 6 pairs of sunglasses in Tenerife + carrying them in the hand luggage would be a really big struggle, since I don't have that many cases for sunglasses! Which ones should I take? What do you think?

Viena lieta,  ko es zinu pavisam noteikti, ir tā, ka es līdzi gribu paņemt pārāk daudz saulesbriļļu pāru! Manuprāt, man nav nepieciešamas sešas saulesbrilles, kaut arī atradīšos diezgan saulainā vietā! Un kā arī paņemt visas līdzi rokas bagāžā būtu grūti, jo man nav pietiekoši daudz saulesbriļļu maku! Kuras man ņemt līdzi? Kā Tev liekas? 

~With love~
Maddie

  14. Oh, you don't have any checked-in luggage? Then it sure is tough to bring skincare and make-up. Also the airprot sounds really strict, I always use random 1 L bags from grocery stores or IKEA that do not have the 1L printed on them and I never had a problem.
    And haha, I pack exactly the same way, by laying things out on the bed and trying out various combinations. :)
