We all know that when we book a holiday the cost doesn’t just end there. Then comes the cost of; extra luggage, sun cream etc. I’m going to share with you what I class as an essential… 🙄 I’d love to know what yours are too 🙊
So when I say toiletries I don’t just mean the usual, shower gel or shampoo! I’m talking about things that you may possibly use daily & think ‘oh I won’t need that on holiday’ trust me, you’re wrong.
Firstly, nobody wants to have dry hair & you’re going to have to look after it even more with the change in weather. Depending on what you like to treat your hair with I would suggest you use an oil or elixir after every wash. You will also want a heat treatment spray if you’re off to somewhere hot hot hot ☀️🌴 because my hair is super important to me I will also give it a treatment mask at least once while I’m away. Below are just a few of the hair products I loooove.
If I was to say I’m addicted to buying new bikinis I feel like it might be an understatement🙄👙 I’m sure I’m not the only one. This may sound silly to some people but to me I like to take a fair few so I can have a choice. We all have days where we may feel a bit frumpy or not in the mood to wear a teeny tiny bikini so having a variety is good! Plus I like to save the white ones until my tan is a bit darker… 💁🏽😜
I’m going for 12 days this time so I think I’m going to take 7 swimsuits/bikinis with me. I always find I have 1 which is like my go to bikini. Don’t forget to take a cute coverup to go with these 🙊 did I say A… I actually meant many/multiple/lots, you know?!
3. White underwear
When I go on holiday I tend to take a lot of white outfits or outfits that might be a little more see through than what I would wear at home. I mean some outfits you can get away with it but others it’s a complete no no. I find that I need a lot more white underwear than any other colour! So this time I have really prepared myself & I went shopping to find myself some new knickers 💁🏽 Dorothy Perkins had a bargain just recently; 3 pairs for £10. Sorted! Or alternatively if you can find some nice white ones in topshop they always have 3 for £10 too 👛
4. A good book
I absolutely love lounging by the pool or laying on the beach reading a really gripping book. It really helps me to chill out & drift into my own little world. This year I have bought a book that has been published recently by a girl that went to my school so I think I will really get into this. I also love to take magazines as well 📚 cannot beat a bit of light reading too! I can’t wait to annoy my other half by keep having to share what’s happening with what I’m reading.. 🙊 sorry Sam, love you. Airports are the best place to grab your magazines as you’re completely in holiday mode by then 😂 I end up buying some very odd things that I wouldn’t normally read 🙄
5. Lots of music
Another one of my favourite things while I’m on holiday is to constantly have music playing. Whether it’s when I’m at the pool with headphones in, whilst I’m showering or whilst I’m getting ready; dancing around the hotel room half dressed singing along while the better half is showering (I feel sorry for him reading this post back) 😂 personally I use Spotify on my phone, I get premium for when I’m away so I can have my phone on airplane mode ✈️💁🏽 but I also take my old iPod with me too with all the old songs on, just to remind me of how not cool I was when I was a teenager!
