IN FLIGHT HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS - WHAT'S IN MY BAG?

22.5.15

I recently went for the most perfect week away to Costa Blanca, Spain and it was incredible.
I'm a very forgetful human and nearly always misplace, forget or lose something.
So for me, packing my In Flight Bag is actually quite humorously challenging.

So with a holiday successfully completed where I actually (for once) didn't forget anything, for myself next time I fly and for other forgetful humans out there I thought I'd share with you my In Flight Holiday Essentials.


What's in my Bag?


As a lot of you might know if you've read my blog for a long time, I love Paul's Boutique.
I've worked with Paul's Boutique on many occasions and went to their amazing Christmas Party last year too.

So when we booked our holiday to Spain a New Bag was definitely needed for my In Flight Carry On, and theres not a lot better than getting a New Paul's Boutique Bag from their HS15 Collection.


I love Paul's Boutique's latest High Summer Collection and their website it so useful and easy to browse with amazing photographs and a huge selection.

I Immediately fell in love with their Mila Bag in their hugely popular Deco Style in Mushroom, Taupe & Patent Black shades.

It's an ideal style for an In Flight Bag and it's tall, with tall handles, expanded side for extra room, inner side pocket and a zipper too. But also, extremely stylish!

I'm a Monochrome lover, Obviously!
However, I also have a crazy love for Nudes too and this Mushroom & Taupe Combination of shades is stunning and can be use with any outfit because of it's stylish neutral tones. 


The Mila Mushroom sidekick is the Carla Purse.

The Carla Purse continues to Deco Design and the Neutral Tones.
My favourite thing about this Purse is the size of it.
I carry a lot of things in my purse, and especially when on holiday too with all the different currencies floating around it, and you always find an overflow of change when abroad and the Carla gives you plenty of room for all those things.

It's larger than most wallets but that's perfect for me.
With so many card slots and large areas too store receipts, notes, vouchers etc as well as the essential change zipper pocket too it's ideal.

But due to the size, my ultimate favourite thing about the purse if the fact I can fit my iPhone 6 Plus inside it!
So when you don't want to carry a handbag everywhere with you and you own a huge iPhone like myself, pop it in your Carla Purse and use it as a clutch! 
Perfection.


The other, and most important Holiday Essentials are of course Holiday Documents, Euros, Passports, Travel Insurance Documents and all the other scarily important items you can't live without when travelling abroad.

Although, due to my clumsiness I don't trust myself with any of these important items and get physically terrified of losing them, as I'm a pro at losing anything and everything.

So I picked up with amazing Travel Organiser and it really did save us for any of my clumsiness this holiday and keeping everything in one place is so handy.

When at the airport theres nothing worse than trying to rumble through everything in your busy flight bag to purse a drink or buy something at duty free when you can't find your boarding pass or anything.

With this Travel Organiser it's all you need to have at hand because everything in there in its perfectly organise slot, safe from clumsiness.


Other In Flight Essentials are of course your Cosmetics.
Whether you're flying short to long haul you always need a good moisturiser, exfolicator, perfume, hand cream and anti bacterial hand gel.

I use my Rodial Stemcell Superfood Day Cream as its ideal for nourishing and hydrating the skin when travelling, perfectly paired with the Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Cleansing Pads.

I also can't go anywhere without my hand essentials.
Emma Hardie Hand & Nails Treatment and Primark Anti Bacterial Hand Gel.

You always need a good perfume at hand to sprits you over when travelling to avoid any unwanted odours from creeping out anywhere, and my Kiehls Rose & Patchouli is one of my favourites and also perfectly fresh and summery for a summer holiday.

Finally, is my new little pal my Venus Snap Razor!
It's so cute and diddy and a really clever design with a little case too ideal for travel.

Please Note: All Liquids should be 100ml or less when taking them in your hand luggage.
Check with your airline also if Razors can be taken on board too.  



Another must have essential when travelling abroad is a good trusty pair of headphones.
My favourite pair are my Classic White Swarovski Crystal Bass Buds that come in a little carry pouch too to avoid that annoying tangling issue.

Of course, a Compact Mirror, Travel Sized Hair Brush, Change of Tshirt and New Book to read too too!
I'm in love with my French Bulldog Compact Mirror from Primark, so cute!


One of the definite Top 3 Holiday Essentials is a decent pair of Sunglasses.
I'm loving my Calvin Klein Sunglasses from TK Maxx at the moment for only £24.99 too they were a Holiday Must Have Bargain!


If you're travelling abroad soon:

1. Have an amazing time

2. I hope this Hand Luggage In Flight Essentials Post has been helpful whether your forgetful like me, or not!

Be sure to check out Paul's Boutique New High Summer 2015 Collection as there are so many amazing designs and the Carla & Mila are available in many other shades and combinations too.
