I’ve chosen to write a post about packing some hand luggage essentials. You never know, it could be helpful for myself when I decide to actually pack!

So, at approximately 6pm tomorrow evening, I’ll be jetting off on a plane to Turkey. I’m not sure what it will be like, but I’m intrigued. The last time I went on a beach holiday was probably about 3 years ago. The last time I went on an all-inclusive holiday? Never.

So, as you can tell, yes! I’m very excited! According to the web, the flight will take around 4 and a half hours. This leaves me with a lot of flexibility when packing. I’m going to be taking my trusty Superdry backpack because we get 20KG of hold capacity! Bargain!

Without further ado… Here’s what Hand Luggage Essentials usually come with me on the plane!…

  1. Moisturiser
    I don’t know about you, but over the years, it has come as a big pet peeve of mine to have dry skin. I can’t stand the feeling of it! But I love it when my skin is nice and fresh. My old favourite is the Nivea Soft Moisturiser.
  2. Laptop
    This isn’t really an ‘essential’ as such, but I always bring my laptop everywhere with me. However, these days you can never trust airports. I’m not saying they’re going to steal it but there is a long history of them losing luggage.
  3. Camera
    This kind of applies to the last paragraph, too. But also, as you may be aware, I’m a vlogger who loves to film ALL her trips. So, there’s that one too!
  4. Magazines/Books
    I’ve been on and off loving Cosmo recently, I’m not sure why, but I just love some of the stories in there. A book I’ll be taking is Carl Fogarty’s The World According to Foggy. This is work related really. I landed a job not too long ago as a Digital Marketing Manager in the Motorbike industry.
  5. Sudoku
    This is a personal favourite of mine –  I can’t go abroad without a little puzzle book! In particular Sudoku for me!
  6. Money
    It’s always good to have both currencies of both countries in your pocket – which also reminds me to go get some Euros! Or Lire!… I also LOVE to use my Monzo card, you can top it up on your phone, and it doesn’t incur any charges. You can use it anywhere in the world. It’s contactless, and it’s great! I recently used it in America and it changed my life!
  7. Makeup
    I personally don’t really travel with a foundation as I like to apply moisturiser en route. So, I keep handy my mascara, eyeliner, and just a little bit of lip balm. All in a clear plastic bag ready for inspection!

Some other little things we can’t forget are:

  • Glasses – personally
  • Hairbrush
  • Phone
  • Earphones
  • Notebook & Pens

I can’t wait to go on my travels, stay tuned for a vlog on my channel where I’ll no doubt be sharing my journey!

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed reading this little snippet… Let me know if I’ve missed any off, or in general, any of your personal essentials which might come in handy for any future readers!
