Packing for family fun or work during the summer is tricky; you want to look your best, but you do not want to lug pounds of items you do not need.

For May’s Real Life Style LIVE show on Wednesday night May 1st from 8-8:30pm we will explore the science of packing for destinations with the kids and without ’em.

Inspired by my and other bloggers’ upcoming trip to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at Walt Disney World, we will be discussing the balance between marvelous and minimalist packing, which items are diva-extra DON’Ts and which are double-duty DOs.

Watchers of the live show can also win gift cards to my favorite frugal fashionista vacation (packing) destinations: DSW, TJ Maxx and Old Navy!


Join us one hour earlier than usual (hey, the best beauty aid is free: SLEEP!) at 8pm-8:30pm for an outrageous online party.
