Holiday Essentials: your packing nightmare sorted!

I don’t know about you, but every time I go on holiday I have an absolute nightmare trying to fit all my things in one teeny suitcase. When I went to Budapest earlier in the summer, we were only there for 4 days, but I ended up packing so much. But I’m trying to be a savvier packer – hopefully you can be too! So I’ve included my list of holiday essentials currently on the high street here. Me and my boyfriend are looking to go to Croatia with his family at the end of August – so hopefully this list will help me with my packing – and you with yours!

1. Swimwear

The slogan one piece: H&M

The floral bikini: Matthew Williamson

The crochet bikini…
1) Abad X Missguided

2) In The Style


2. Off the Shoulder Top…

This is without a doubt the neckline of S/S ’16, so pretty essential for a holiday. Could make for some pretty dodgy tan lines though…



3. The Sun dress: Topshop

4. The Denim shorts: Levi’s

5. The Pom Pom Sandal (an absolute must have- so bright and perfect for holidays!): Glamorous

6. The MuleAldo

7. The Straw Bag: Mango

7. The Sunglasses: Nasty Gal

8. The Straw Hat: Bershka

9.  Skin Care…

Perfect moisturiser: Nip & Fab


I’m pretty big on suncare, and for my face and neck I always use SPF30, even in winter. When I’m on holiday I usually use SPF 15 so I get a bit of a tan on the rest of my body. I absolutely love Haiwaiian Tropic for its smell; and Dermalogica has the most soothing after sun for sensitive skin.

SPF 30: Hawaiian Tropic

SPF15: Hawaiian Tropic

After Sun: Dermalogica

10. The Camera…

For high-quality images (this is my own camera I use for all my blog posts!):  Canon EOS 700d

For cute Polaroids: Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

Happy shopping!
