ABOUT TRAVEL FASHION GIRL was created due to my frustrations at the lack of information for women available when I started traveling.

In 2008, most packing tips were based around 2 pairs of trousers, 4 t-shirts, and 3 pairs of underwear – a packing list more suitable for a man as most were written by men.

I wanted to create a resource that offered women a more precise and visual idea about what they needed to pack consisting of practical items with a feminine point of view.

In order to create accurate, relevant content I spent over a year interviewing other travelers on the road before launching Travel Fashion Girl in August 2012.

What began as my personal quest to learn how to pack light on my long-term travels has now turned into the most popular women’s packing resource online. We’ve now also launched our own line of travel products, Compass Rose Travel Accessories.

With almost one million monthly readers, we’ve helped more than 20 million women avoid the mistakes I made when I started traveling. Let me help you avoid them, too!
