Packing For A Trip Home

April 02, 2014

With only one more essay due, which is well on its way and in the editing stages, I decided to take a little time away from the library and start the process of packing my bags for a few weeks at home.

Trying to fit it all in

My bed now looks as though a bomb has hit it- there are things everywhere, and I still have to squeeze in all my laundry for my mum to do as well. 

I thought I'd just quickly show what I've been packing in a couple of my bags~

My Toiletry Bag and Make up Bag

 Both my toiletry bag and my make up bag are from Cath Kidston. I got the make up bag last year for Christmas, and I've found that all my essentials fit nicely into it. The toiletry bag was a present this Christmas past from my brother, and as luck would have it, he picked the same pattern. I've found its really come in handy for my weekend visits home, and helps to keep my bags a lot more organised.

Inside the bag
What I've packed inside~
  • Johnson's baby cleansing wipes
  • Sally Hansen Polish Remover (and cotton wool pads)
  • My Tooth Brush and Retainers
  • Sudocreme (which helps clear up any blemishes)
  •  QVS Tweezers
  • My Hairbrush
  • Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream- which I think is more like a gel and can be put on rough patches of skin (warning it does smell a little, but I can't quite work out what it reminds me of)
  • The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream- my absolute favourite moisturiser, which I use all the time
  • Soap and Glory "Glam a-lot" body spray, which I spray if I'm popping out somewhere quickly
  • Benefit "Laugh With Me Lee Lee" perfume, which my friend gave to me, and its one of my favourite fragrances
  • Cacharel "Amor Amor" perfume, this is my everyday perfume which I love because its so small so I pop it in all my handbags before I go out the house

My Travel Bag

Another Cath Kidston Christmas present, this over night bag I have found ideal for travelling, since I have to take the train for almost 3 hours, I like to take a lot of things to entertain myself.

Inside the Bag~
  •  Student Planner- my lifesaver this year, everything is written in here. I feel like I'm that girl in 27 dresses with her planner.. so many things are written in here
  • Notepad- I've started to carry one around so I can write down blog ideas
  • Travel Diary- I'm already planning my trip to Southern Turkey, and this book is my bible
  • My Ipad
  • My Ipod and headphones
  • Sony headphones, my ears hurt if I wear the buds for too long so the soft head phones are ideal for longer journeys
  • Book- One Day- which I have been wanting to read for a while, and now I don't have to worry about essay readings for a change
  • The Wire- now that I've finished Dexter, my dad gave my season one of The Wire to watch
  • My Laptop- not in the picture, but it also fits perfectly into the bag

Feel free to share your travel essentials! 

Lots of love,
