Packing tips for a weekend in Copenhagen

I may be weird, but I love packing!

After all I am constantly unpacking and repacking my life at the moment, and have done for the past few years. Even when I had a full time job I was constantly going back to my boyfriends for the weekend, off on a jaunt or going off on a trip abroad.

Before my trip to Copenhagen last month I decided I need to be extra organised as it was winter and would be bloody freezing when I visited. This time I spent nearly a week with the suitcase out and planned my outfits for the trip. I also only had a carry out so I had to be coy with my outfit changes and make sure I could re-wear clothing for different outfits.

Here is what I packed for 72 hours in Copenhagen…
