I don't know...still struggling
BUT I do love a good flat-lay and as I scramble to figure out what to pack that would be sufficient for a year, I decided a blog post would help me out. Not really lol but we're going with it x
Always one for both the practical and the aesthetically pleasing, I compiled a list that is short and sweet, of things I love/need/want/can't go without when it comes to travel. Enjoy!
LEFT TO RIGHT:
Soludos Linen Platform Gladiator Sandal
With 85% of my shoe collection being espadrilles, I can safely say that they are both perfectly comfortable and perfectly stylish– matching almost any outfit.
Michael Kors Saffiano Leather Satchel
Only handbag I have used for the last two years, perfect in size and quality for travel. Fits (almost) everything you need.
Michael Kors Jetset Travel Saffiano Leather Continental Wallet
Bought because I lost my very cute pink Ted Baker wallet on a night out in Manila :( but now I love it so all g
Ted Baker Drink Bottle
This one really is just a case of pretty packaging 😅
Kate Spade circe 2 Sunglasses
Might need that, idk tho
For those who like to snack!
Mimco Travel Wallet
Mum's Christmas present to me = my new favourite thing. Also makes me feel nice and prepared for the long-anticipated flight because it keeps all flight logistics in one place.
TDE Limited Edition 2017 Diary
Keeps you and all your flight details/travel itinerary organised.
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (or any other book)
Definitely worth a read and perfect for passing time during lengthy flights!!
Gotta keep up with the travel 'grams!!!
Country Road Clutch
Large enough that it's perfect to hold all your beauty/skincare essentials! Plus, aesthetic.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
A perfectly refreshing wake-me-up before and after a long flight. The smallest size may be a little bit too big for the on-flight allowance though, so you can always pour some into a miniature spray bottle!
Soooo yummy and sooo moisturising
Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne
MY FAVOURITE FRAGRANCE OF ALL TIME!!! - you stay smelling nice and fresh, keeping that stale plane-smell at bay.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser
Puts a 'lil colour into your face without packing on makeup; something you don't wanna do if you're stuck on a flight or traveling around all day in hot weather.
Dior Addict Fluid Stick
The perfect little facial accent to keep you looking put-together.
As for the rest of my packing, the struggle continues. It's hard to part with all your beloved clothes for a year :'( Manila does have incredible shopping though, so I'm sure I'll deal ;)
T minus 7 days!
