Getting ready for travel

Saturday, 13 July 2013





We go on holiday soon (yeeha) and I get obsessive about packing. I think it is actually the best bit about going away (weird I know). Usually we go long haul, but because of Miss M, we are going to Spain, just a short flight for us.
I thought I would document my cabin bag, as I love seeing what people pack!
First up.
My travel bag is my Mulberry Dorset bag (the large size, no longer available)
My product bag is leather from All Saints (it's a mens wash bag)
Products (L-R) hand gel (another thing i obsess over, i am addicted hand gel) Aromatherapy Associates Rose Moisturizer (smells like heaven)Aquaphor salve (only available in America but soothes and smoothes lips and skin, and I use on Meadow)
Aveda hand moisturiser. Beauty Flash Balm (I smother my face in this in flight. I never care what it looks like!)
Front (L-R) Lime oil (to pep and freshen) Chanel mascara in travel size. Aromatherapy Associates support oil (breathe in and helps fight germs!!) This Works breathe in lavender roll on (I have blogged about this before) My NARS bronzer and Chanel travel bronzing brush finish up on the makeup front...I would rather travel without wearing any really...I think it is important to let skin breathe on board.
My large cashmere Gucci wrap (I know, lucky me) and a favourite book! I have read this already but love it...Lego for Meadow to play with as well as her Hello Kitty snack box and headphones! She loves listening to music and films with these on!! Anything to keep her amused a while.

I have not included snacks, but I am big on taking my own. Almonds, peanut butter crackers, oatcakes and dried fruit are our regular snacks.

Next week I will post my travel outfit!!!

Hope you are all travelling this summer? Let me know your tips for on board :)
xoxo

Ooh how very exciting, it's going to be hot!! I too love packing all my nic-nacs but I have to confess that since having kids it's much less fun, no lovely outfits for fun days out. Now it's a case of sorting them out and filling whatever space is left. I have to add that my cosmetics and accessories always get priority. I haven't read that book will have a peek on amazon. We will be jetting off in August, the joys of school hols. Hope you're enjoying your weekend xoxo
