Holiday! (and hand luggage essentials)

If you’re reading this the day it goes live – Thursday 17th December then I’m up in the air on my way to see family for the Christmas holidays!

I thought I’d leave you with a short something to read – hand luggage essentials. The flight from Dubai to London isn’t that long – 6.5 hours but I’ve realised I take the same things with me in hand luggage regardless of the flight time.

Here’s what I packed:

travel essentials

  • Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream – this stuff is good for everything, chapped lips, dry skin (just don’t use too much as it can be a it oily) and as an intensive hand cream
  • Jo Malone vitamin e lip conditioner¬†– amazing for dry lips especially in cold, windy weather
  • Ren skincare eye cream – this was a free samples I got and I save it for when I travel because it’s the perfect size and great for cooling tired skin around the eyes
  • Kleenex tissues and a compact mirror – always essentials!

Other bits and pieces include my iphone 6, hand sanitiser, gum…lots of gum! And gummy earphones – these are the most comfortable ear phones and the only ones I use now that I’ve discovered them! Most importantly though, a blanket scarf. Planes and trains etc… always seem to be cold so as well as layering up I always take a big scarf with me. And not shown but goes without saying I always take at least one book and at least two magazines!

Make up bag is from Forever 21 and other initials are available.

Happy travelling if you’re going anywhere over the Christmas holidays!
