Travel essentials

Hey guys!

Today I thought I would post about what I carry in my handbag when travelling as I will be doing lots of that during the next 2 months.


Since it is Summer and I will be travelling to hot places I tend to carry less. I don’t normally carry around a wallet with me in London as I prefer to just have a card holder as its much easier, but when I go on holiday I find it easier to keep different currencies. I then carry a bit of make up just in case like lip balm, foundation, concealer and mascara. I am currently using the luminous silk foundation from Giorgio Armani and the Clarins concealer, I love them both because they’re really light and don’t dry out the skin but still have enough coverage. The mascara I use is the Diorshow blackout mascara, which gives amazing volume and i’ve been using it for a while now. The only annoying thing is that this mascara does tend to dry out quite quickly 😦  If you do have another mascara favourite, do let me know! As for Lip balm and lipstick, I carry around Smith’s Rosebud Salve original lip balm which is the best thing out there! I always change the lipstick I carry but lately I have been obsessed with Tom Ford lipsticks, and my favourite one is called Indian Rose and I would say has a medium rosy pink colour to it which is perfect for every day use.

I take a little pouch with me which I keep my passport, health card and any other tickets when travelling. The one I use is from Furla as I absolutely love their pouches and I do have more than one 😉  Oh and they aren’t too pricey either, which is great. Also during hot weather season I never leave without a pair of sunglasses in my handbag.
