WHITE RUCKSACK PRIMARK | HEADBAND HANDMADE | FLIP FLOPS H&M | MINI TOILETRIES PRIMARK | PASSPORT COVER WHSMITH | WOVEN BEACH BAG PRIMARK |
PURSE PRIMARK | SUNGLASSES ASOS | TRAVEL PLUG SUPERDRUG

It's that time of year, holiday time! My holiday begins with taking the coach from Somerset to my friends flat in London, staying overnight then taking the train to the airport then finally getting on a plane to somewhere hot hot hot, Cyprus to be exact. With that in mind I had the inspiration to write a little holiday post about some of the essentials - and not so essential essentials - I take with me that will hopefully make you think about what you really need to take. Do you need that fourth handbag? Probably not. Your sixth pair of heels? Certainly not. With my luggage limit being 15kg this year I am condensing what I take without trying to miss anything out. It's a struggle, believe me.

This is just a quick snippet of what I'll be taking, the majority of which I can cheekily store in my hand luggage. First, the boring stuff; a travel plug is obviously a good start to any holiday packing - even if you're going with friends and they've all told you they'll take one it's good to have more in case it gets lost, or the more likely option of you all wanting to do your hair at the same time. Next, the passport!!! Don't forget the passport, and how could you if you have a fun cover for it? Yes, you may have to take it off for security through the airport but when you chuck in your bag later on you're not scrambling and panicking as it's going to stand out more. Especially the cover I bought from WHSMITH as I thought it was a little fun (so cool, aren't I?) but it's also one of my favourite novels.

Onto the more fun things! This rucksack, I mean just look at it! My £9, yup £9 bargain from Primark is a little risky I must admit, I'll be protecting this bright white item with my life wearing rubber gloves to carry it at all times - I joke obviously but it is going to be hard to keep it white but it just grabbed me as soon as I walked into the shop. The beach bag is also from Primark - how well is this high street brand doing at the moment? Amazing - and perfect to just chuck your beach towel, sun screen and purse in. The flip flops are from H&M and me not really being a great fan of this particular shoe style I thought these were a good compromise, no rubber in sight! The last item(s) I wanted to share were these miniature toiletries, to me anything mini is always a winner but when you're luggage allowance is as little as mine then they are a necessity. 

Are you off anywhere nice? Leave me a comment and share your thoughts with what you would take and where you're headed, I'd love to hear from you.
