•Holiday Travel Essentials•

by - 1:00 pm

Over the last few weeks as you can tell I have been on a few weekend travels, with traveling so close together I left my toiletry bag ready to go each time. I thought it would be fun to show you what I pack and take with me on weekends away. Kinda like a What's in My bag, but my toilery bag instead. I find these post so interesting, to have a nosy into what people take! Prepare for a lot of mini products, I do love a mini sample of a product ;)

I have to mention first off my Irresistible Me Jade Brush,* like I said in my review a few posts ago it is a ceramic straightening brush. Trying to pack light is so hard when you have to pack a brush and straighteners so this is perfect.  You can read my full review but it is so easy to use and so lightweight, it will and is a travel essential! 

To help keep my straighten hair in place I take this mini Tony & Guy Hairspray, it is amazing to set my hair and keep it in place, but it is a perfect size. I just love picking up minis for my holidays, I am nearly finished this so I might have to pick the full version up! 

Sticking with hair products, I have to take these mini bottles of my favourite shampoo and conditioner. I have talked about my love for OGX hair products before, they work wonders on my hair. The few times I have been away I haven't used them but they don't weigh much and it's always handy to keep both in my bag!

Skin-wise, I take the cutest minis of the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and the Liz Earle Instant Skin Tonic! Just look at how cute they are tho, they are just replicas of the big thing and that makes me happy! I actually keep filling up my Emma Hardie tub (not sure how hygienic that is) as the full-size tub is pretty big and would weigh a lot.
These are both a staple in my skin care routine so I have to take them with me!!

Lastly, mini perfumes! I think this is what gets me excited the most, I just love mini perfumes/mists! I obviously have to take my Zoella Beauty minis with me, I have been loving 'Let's Spritz' lately. I also bought mini YSL perfumes last year at Duty-Free so they are just perfect if I want a stronger scent! Black Opium has to be my favourite!! I lastly take, my mini Victoria Secret perfumes, I have a slight obsessed with VS and I love the scents they have so (sneak peak at my haul) I had to buy them when I popped into VS in Copenhagen. I am gonna save them and take them to America with me!!

Let me know what you take with you on your holidays?? Do you love minis as much as me? ;)
Hope you are having a great day!

*This product was sent to me, but I have given my honest options*

  14. This was fun to see what your travel essentials are! I love having minis of my favorite products just because I can take them on the go whenever something does come up so I'm not weighed down. I've only heard of a handful of these products so it's nice to know new ones to try! (:
