    Perfectly packed carry on – Last of the winter sun

    Tomorrow I’m lucky enough to be making my way to Abu Dhabi for a much needed winter break with my
    family. I’ll be spending 10 days lounging on beaches, indulging in luxury spa treatments and celebrating the festive holiday.

    The flight is around 7/8 hours and this year I’m travelling in style with British Airways first class. Comfort is key on any flight, so the first item I have packed in my carry on is my travel outfit, from Zara – this beautiful Gucci inspired cardigan and matching bottoms!

    Although you’ll never catch me at the airport with the no-make up/ big sunglasses look. Those 7 hours I’m in the sky, with my glass of Champagne, I like to indulge my skin as much as I can so I have a whole list of beauty essentials packed.

    Carry on beauty essentials are pretty restricted as you can take no more than 10, 100ml bottles – therefore making the shortlist of products was a tough decision #firstworldproblems, hereare the products that have made the cut!

    To cleanse my face, I have packed my Olay face wipes – I don’t normally use face wipes (saving the liquid allowance) but these face wipes are great at removing make up and cleansing the face as well as gentle enough to remove any eye make up.

    Next is my trusty Clinique toner – I love this product and use it daily to refresh my skin.

    I’ve popped in a sheet mask, I’ve ran out of my favourite Starskin masks – need to make an order, but have picked up a Garnier moisture bomb tissue mask – being on a plane, your skin can get quite dehydrated so this one sounded perfect!

    My final skin care products I have packed are my Alpha-H Liquid Gold (can’t go anywhere without it now) and my Clinique moisture surge and eye cream.

    When I land in Abu Dhabi, I want to look presentable, so I have popped in my Clinique CC cream and mascara, Nars concelar and my new favourite CharlotteTilbury lipstick in Penelope Pink.

    Apart from other travel essentials – passport, boarding pass, travel money, a good book, my laptop and probably a couple of duty free purchases, that’s everything that will be coming on the plane with me.

    I can’t wait to share my Abu Dhabi adventures with you, so be sure to be following me on Instagram!

    Wishing you a fabulous Christmas!
