and I like to be prepared for every eventuality.
Example: My trip to Melbourne for VAMFF earlier this year. I had everything I needed neatly folded and ready to go, when two hours before my flight I began a hysterical bout of panic packing.
If you don't know what panic packing is - picture trying to shove every piece of clothing, pair of shoes and handbag you own into one suitcase as your Uber waits downstairs - even those pants you haven't fit into since 2013, just because you "might" need them.
Not a pretty sight.
But it's not just about what you pack these days, to travel in style you need the perfect bag to carry your things in.
Which is why I almost literally jumped for joy when Jessica Bratich brought out her newest range of bags - including the super stylish Deity Overnighter - perfect for the traveller in all of us.
And what better location to shoot them in than gorgeous new luxe guesthouse on the block, The Lodging, in Fremantle.

perfect timing for those of us planning winter getaways this year (which I wasn't, but with that temperature drop over the last few days, I'm out of here ASAP)
