I’m flying back home and I’m so excited! It’s time to start packing my travel essentials!
The company allows me to bring two pieces of hand luggage with me – one small case and a handbag. This means that all of my clothing stuff go in the case, and all my travel essentials – in my bag. If you are curious what’s inside – then keep on reading!
Meet my go-to bag! I ordered it last year from ebay and I’m just obsessed with it! It’s nice and comfy, can take a lot and I just love it!
Passport and traveling tickets:
Obvious reasons – you can’t travel without them. It’s just a reminder for people like me who lose their ID 4 hours before their flight. (ps. it was found later but the rush wasn’t really exciting).
2. Clear zip-lock make up bag:
This is another must have, as I’ve seen people throwing their stuff at the airport and that makes me really sad. You can carry liquids up to 100ml each, so take full advantage of it. I got my bag from Primark for £1 and it’s reusable. There were also some small plastic bottles inside, which can come very handy, but I don’t usually need them. In my bag I got my mascara, concealer, eyeliner, and a few cleansing products – NUXE cleansing gel and exfoliating gel (as I never feel clean enough after a flight), and CAUDALIE Brightening Serum – we need to shine, right! I use testers or travel size products, and I usually get these from my monthly beauty boxes – Birchbox or Love Me Beauty Box (use my code siyana20 for money off).
3. Phone battery:
You never know what might happen, but having a spare battery can never be something you can’t use. Your phone may die, no available plugs around.. it’s a real struggle and you better stay on the safe side. Also, don’t forget to take your charger (like me)!
4. Empty water bottle:
I know this move is a bit cheap, but I refuse to pay £5 for water that costs 60p a few meters back. What I do is carry an empty bottle and fill it up after I go through the scanners. Saves lives! You can also bring a snack with you, you absolutely need it!
5. My organisation diary:
I carry this everywhere with me because 1 – it’s just the most adorable, and 2 – I need some tidiness in my life 😀 There I write something like this:
15:00 – catch bus (…) from (…) – every 15 minutes
15:30 – arrive on the airport
17:30 – my scheduled flight
22:30 – plane arrives
23:00 – catch but (..) to (…) – last bus at 23:45
It’s very useful, especially when you visit a new place and you have to use public transport. And again – how adorable is that?
6. Final touch ups:
I like to carry my lipsticks in the pocket of my jackets, so when I arrive I can fix myself a little bit. Also add a little bit of a scent, it can be really refreshing – but don’t do that in the plane, as the scent can irritate some people! (ps. I’m really not sure if you can see how tiny this bottle is!)
Of course you should also take your keys, some napkins, gifts for your friends and family, maybe a book, earphones, but most important – your smile and summer attitude! (Who am I kidding – the passport!)
I’m curious to know what are yours travel essentials! Thank you for reading,
