What I'm Packing for my Holiday



This week I am heading off to sunny Portugal on Friday for a week in Lagos and Lisbon! Usually I am ultra-prepared when it comes to holidays and would have bought my new clothes and toiletries in advance, but I've ended up leaving everything until the last minute!

Luckily I'v pretty much got everything I need ready to go and last year when I went to Cuba I did a little 'What I'm packing' post which did really well so I thought I'd do the same this year and show you what I'm taking along with me for my holiday.



Firstly my bikini is from Dorina. I love that their top sizes are by bra size rather than top size so I can get the exact fit and I thought this floral bandeau was super cute!



Next up for my toiletries I am in love with this SPF 50 facial mist from La Roche Posay. It is ideal for hot, sticky days as it freshens up skin while still protecting it from the sun. Philip Kingsley has also introduced a new range of products for summer that answer all my haircare needs! Swimcap is a protective cream that guards hair from chlorinated and salt water - protecting against dryness and discoloration (who else's hair comes out looking like straw when they spend a day by the sea?) and Instant Beach is a texturising spray for tousled waves (and it's salt free so no damage to the hair!)

Lastly it feels a little weird talking about sweating but, lets face it, if you spend a day exploring and sightseeing you are usually a hot, sweaty mess by the end of it and worried about smelling. Odaban is a multi use, effective antiperspirant that you can use head to toe - from under arms down to sweaty feet - and it is so easy to apply because you just need one spritz and you're good to go! No need to faff with aerosols and waiting for roll-ons to dry.


For the essentials I ALWAYS use an electric toothbrush while travelling - I don't know why but I just find them a lot more effective and they help me to stay feeling fresh if I'm travelling between places. This battery-powered toothbrush by Sonic Chic is super cute and really compact so it feels into a travel bag nicely. Plus it comes with a replacement toothbrush head!

Finally, my nails always seem to get wrecked on holiday so I always make sure I carry a nail file with me from now on. I love this three in one buffer from Leighton Denny as it helps remove discolouration and keep nails shiny even after they've been dried out by the sun, sea and sand!

What are your holiday essentials? Let me know your recommendations!
