After a lovely time in Portugal last week, I’ve been thinking about those of you who still have your holiday yet to come (you lucky ducks!), so today I’m sharing with you my travel essentials, which as the title may imply, isn’t just for Summer holidays but valid for any travelling you may have coming up!
I’ve flown alot in my life so I’m actually a pretty great packer, but my goodness it is an arduous task, so getting me to do it is painful (just ask Himself, he has to hear about it when I don’t want to do it!!). The other pitfall for me is the fact that once I’m “in the zone” I pack very quickly – which is why when Mom used to ring me just a few hours before my flight and say “you all set?” what she was really asking was “have you actually packed yet?” – more often than not the answer was no, but I was only going from London to Dublin for the weekend, it was FINNNNE!
I would like to say in my adultness I’ve gotten better, well I have-ish, wellll… ok, really I just know what my must-haves are, so everything else is a bonus if I remember to pack it!! So, without further adieu, the below are my must haves – hope it’s helpful!
Kindle – because books are life
Phone & Charger
Camera & Charger
Hairdryer & Curly Wand
Skincare & Eyes
Suncream – this one, cause there be no messing when it comes to my skin come Spring, Summer, Autumn OR Winter (yes, Winter!)
Sungalsses & Glasses
Moisturiser (body & face)
Muscle soothing gel (especially on a city break when we’ll be walking around lots to explore!)
Bikini – because even in the dead of Winter I will sniff out a hotel with a pool thank you kindly!
