10 Travel Essentials in Travel Size

There are always those essential items that you MUST pack to see you through a short trip away. Not being a girl guide I am most definitely not always prepared but organised – YES I am!
Check out the collection of products that I like to take with me.

I will be in Amsterdam for a couple of days so thought this would be a great time to list the items that I actually need to pack. No matter where I am my camera or phone are always with me to capture the little moments that make memories. There have been days that I wish I had more than just my phone but sometimes the iPhone really does do the trick – dark shots especially!

As you can see I have put in a couple of toiletries like the lip balm (so tasty I could eat it!) and Dove roll on. The main reason behind packing a roll on is that when you are only taking hand luggage you cannot take aerosol so this solves the problem. With regards to shower gel and other such items as they are so easy to pick up whilst away it is quite pointless to pack them don’t you think!? Unless of course you have overly sensitive skin and need certain products.

Office Kwik Step Slipper Black Suede

Having a pair of black pumps is always a good idea as no matter what you wear a pair of these bad boys go with pretty much anything. I tend to go for a pair of black leather converse personally as I usually wear jeans but this lovely pair can go with jeans and skirts so win win! The one thing that I did forget which technically makes it 11 products is something to listen to my audiobooks and music with!

Dr Dre, Dre, Beats by Dre, Beats, Blue, Eminem

What are your go to products for travelling?

jordans 1st pair

After returning from the US with this truly AWESOME pair of Jordan’s they are all I want to wear. Sadly they do not go with everything and I don’t want to wear them out quickly so they do go back in the box every now and then!

If you have Jordan’s – How do you wear yours? If you don’t buy some because they are über comfortable!

Skin Care

Ginger wake up shower gel

This delectable bathroom goody has made me want more than the regular three showers a day (it may seem excessive to some but oh well!). Have you tried it?

Hair Care


These bad boys have not only tamed my locks but also kept away the split ends and made my hair feel sleek. Very happy at the moment!

Listening to . . .

This is the clean version of the tune as I thought it was only appropriate for the blog. However if you would like to watch the original then please do find it on You Tube!
I listen to a variety of music but this song right now has made a regular recurrence on my playlist. What is on yours?



This show is highly addictive and there is something that I cannot identify about Benedict Cumberbatch that is just so HOT!

How is your Monday panning out?

Do let me know 😀monday love!
