5 Unnecessary Things That Lagos Girls Include in Their Packing List

5 unnecessary things that Lagos girls include in their packing list

If you ever see a pretty Nigerian lady with a large luggage in any airport, chances are she is a Lagos girl. Agreed, packing for a trip is often a struggle to decide on what you want to bring from what we need to bring. However, Lagos girls give into temptation and just pack everything they fancy into their travel bags. Unfortunately, doing that usually leads to overpacking which can eventually cost more. To help these Lagos women overcome their packing problems, here are five items they need to strike off their packing list as they are unnecessary and just dig a trap for them.

1. “You never know” clothes

Most Lagos girls like to think that they could have emergencies where they would need to wear certain kind of dresses that is not necessarily appropriate for the trip they are taking, so they pack for the eventuality. Truth is, most times, they never get to wear those clothes and they just end up hauling the excess weight back. Pack only the basics. In case of any unforeseen event, buy a dress from a clothing store in the destination; it never hurts to own something new.

2. Excessive amounts of cosmetics and beauty products

No doubt, Lagos girls love to wear makeup, apply perfumes and generally look good…but is packing gargantuan bottles of moisturizers and facial cleansers really worth being forced to check your bag at the airport? Most of the times, you realize that you do not necessarily use all the beauty products that you pack in. When it comes to travelling with beauty products, stick to the basics and try to opt for an all-in-one compact. Go for products that have multiple purposes, like BB creams or lip and cheek duos. Most hotels even provide mini versions of these cosmetics -especially moisturizers- for guests, so you may want to verify before packing.

3. Several High heel shoes

Pack one shoe that goes with everything! High heels are not entirely necessary, and if it is ultimately essential, do not pack more than one. Go for a neutral color that will blend with all the clothes you have pack and save colour coding for when you are at home.

4. Several handbag options

Bags are essential for women, but there is really no need to pack a number of bags for different occasions when you going on a trip. You do not need separate bags for touring during the day, another for shopping, another for a night out, and another for a business meeting. Go for the perfect all-round option, a simple shoulder bag usually works.

5. Heavy expensive Jewelry

Yes, it nice to look expensive, but..why risk it? Looking gorgeous and expensive is nice, however, when you are travelling, you need to consider the risk that may be involved as they can get missing in transit or stolen from your travel bag or even hotel room. The weight of the Jewelry also may not be comfortable, especially if you have to carry your luggage on your won for long distances. Take a couple of key sparkles, but leave the heirlooms at home.

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim. That is because his equipment will hinder rather than help his game. A runner needs good shoes to run. A bowler needs a bowling ball that weighs and fits right in his hand. The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing. But regardless of the challenge and the relaxation that fishing offers, the goal of fishing is still to catch some fish. Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…
