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.

Dream Interpretation – Dreams of Being Naked

One of the most common dreams around the world is the one in which the dreamer is naked. Dreams of being naked can have several interpretations, and the nakedness in the dream can manifest itself in a number of different ways.

In some naked dreams, the dreamer is simply going about his or her own business, commuting to work driving in the car, walking around the neighborhood, etc. In many cases, the dreamer is completely unaware of his or her nakedness and not at all bothered by it.

In other cases, the dreamer is aware of his or her nakedness but no one else seems to notice at all. While the dreamer may be conscious of the nakedness, everyone else just goes on about their business and make no comments. These types of dreams are often manifestations of the dreamer’s fears. Often the dreamer has fears that he or she worries may be uncovered. Dreams in which no one but the dreamer notices the nakedness are often indications that the fears bothering the dreamer are unfounded, and …
