Can I survive a week without my hair straightener?

Packing is nearly complete except for the elusive beanie. Goodness knows where it has got to. There's not much call for beanies here in Bundaberg so it may well have given up on ever being worn and taken itself off to colder climes. Either way, it looks like I go to Tasmania next week beanie-less. I do have a lot of nice scarves though. And a jacket with a hood. I'm sure I will be able to borrow a beanie if necessary. Plus, it's impossible to tell exactly how cold it's going to be. So I have quite the selection of cardigans, tops, tshirts, etc. You are proving somewhat confounding Tasmania.

I have also just about finished packing for Rockhampton. Apparently it's going to hit a very pleasant low thirties in the middle of the week which calls for a whole different attire altogether. I hate having to decide what I am going to wear every day at the beginning of the week. I prefer to wake in the morning and then decide what I feel like wearing. As a result I probably have enough clothes for two weeks stuffed into a tiny suitcase. I also have "everything but the kitchen sink" - books, music, all manner of jewellery, lotions, potions, make-up, food, and a bag of papers and other work related garbage. I refuse to take more than two pairs of shoes - one to wear and one to pack. But I have one dilemma...Can I survive the week without my hair straightener?

Things left to do: Set the recorder for my "shows", see if I can blog from my iPhone with any ease at all and see if I can Facebook chat from my iPhone.

It seems that my iPhone will feature largely during the week.

Yes, you will need clothes for every season here!! You can never predict the weather!! Sounds like you are a bit of an expert at packing. You could always go for the tousled hair look????? Two pairs of shoes though- definitely not enough for me!!

Ok - good tip! I will pass that on to the rest of the travellers as well. I think it's going to be a no on the hair straightener. I'll just wear a hat in Tassie.

I don't think you can go without a straightener...except when wearing a hat of course. What about photos? If you are used to it you'll regret it...believe me! OR you can give it to me for two weeks ;)

maybe i'll take it to rocky...but then leave it behind for tassie...where am more likely to hat may use it if you are very very careful!!

Go anywhere at all without the hair straightener? Zounds woman. Have you completely lost your mind? You will live to regret it if you do. *shakes head more in sorrow than in anger*
