Packing // Holiday Help

Packing. Love it or hate it, when it comes to a holiday we all have to do it. I don't particularly love packing. It's so time consuming and I never know what clothes to pack and then I end up taking too many which I never wear throughout the holiday. Today I'm going to show you how I packed for my holiday. You may find it excessive or not nearly enough, but my weight limit was quite low and I panic pack (even though I planned).

Planning is essential.

This year I made spider diagrams of all the items I had in mind to take with me. I colour coded my diagram with pink highlighted meaning it's packed, green underlined meaning I'm wearing the item to the airport and yellow underlined meaning it's in my hand luggage. I've still managed to over pack but at least I'm super prepared? Right?

Suitcase choice.

Pick light luggage. The lighter the case, the more you can take/bring home. My luggage is from IT Luggage and it is so light. It's incredible. However, I only have two wheels. I didn't realise four wheeled luggage existed until a recent trip with my friends. They found it so much easier, so out of the whole luggage collection I would recommend buying something like this.

Pack appropriately.

Don't go packing your new pair of high waisted jeans if you're going to be spending a week in thirty degree heat! Even if they do look absolutely amazing on and make you look like you have a bum Iggy Azalea would be jealous of, trust me, put the jeans down. Check the weather! I used an app on my iPhone called Yahoo Weather and it showed me a ten day weather prediction. If its going to rain, pack a hoodie or a coat! Take sensible shoes and anything important you need!

Important documents.

Don't be a massive drip. Remember your tickets, boarding passes, PASSPORT (and EU health card if travelling within Europe). You never know what will happen on the day, so double check just in case.

Comfortable travelling.

You want to be comfy on the plane. I wore a jersey maxi skirt, a light top and a cardigan. They were quite heavy items so I saved some weight there.

These are my tips so far. I've only travelled on a plane twice, so I didn't go too into detail. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Check out my previous Holiday Help post by clicking here.

Makeup Dreaming

makeup dreaming

Hello everyone! I'm back from my holiday!  It was amazing! Sun, sea and cocktails 2-4-1 every hour of the day... What more could you want? I thought my first blog post after a week away would be all about the high end beauty products I've been crushing on. 

The Benefit Push Up Liner looks so easy to apply and the effect is flawless... As Beyoncé would say! Next up on my list is the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Who hasn't been crushing on this? It's full of rosey sparkly nudes. I love nude eyeshadow a!! Then we have this Chanel Lip Gloss which is super long lasting... Could you ask for more? Then I found this Dior gem! A shimmery highlighting blush! It looks like it would suit my skin tone perfectly! The last product on my makeup wish list is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer. I am a massive concealer lover and I've heard so much about the Double Wear foundation, this must be good!! 

Hopefully soon I'll treat myself! My usual post regime will restart next week as I'm still recovering from my week long hangover! I would 100% recommend Sunny Beach for a Twenties holiday, it's so cheap over there! 

Thanks for reading!
