Hand Luggage Essentials.

I'm currently taking a break from packing for Berlin to share with you my Hand Luggage Essentials. It's pretty difficult knowing what you can and can't through airport security but I think it's anything under 100ml, which thankfully these all are.

Okay so firstly my Kindle - how could I get on a plane without this?! My kindle is usually attached to me and is ALWAYS in my handbag, just in case of emergency. You would be surprised knowing how many times i have been so thankful for my Kindle being there. I'm currently a third of the way through Eat Pray Love - I saw the film a few months back and loved it but the book is far better. I will do a full review when I finish it.

As planes are notoriously famous for doing crazy things to your skin I am being prepared - I am taking a hand cream.body moisturiser (which had a review scheduled for the 27th December) and a facial moisturiser. I think I may be really brave in the morning and not put any make up on before my flight. We do fly at 8:30am so it'll be pretty early when I leave the house. 

I am also taking my Salicylic acid in case of any break outs during the flight - my skin has a mind of it's own. I really need to do a 'proper review' of this product, I will try and remember at some point. I have a baby bottle of Liz Earle Skin Tonic so that will be joining me, to refresh my skin during/after the flight. I always feel really dirty and dehydrated when I've been on a plane. And of course a vital lip balm!

Lastly, my travel tangle teezer - no girl should EVER be without one of these!

Have I forgotten any essentials that you would take on board? I am of course grabbing a few mags at the airport and will have my camera, purse and make up bag ready for landing!

  1. It is under 100ml! You can usually double check on their website :)

    I read Eat Pray Love last year and LOVED the book, found it very inspiring!

    Take a few bits to nibble on. Or some sweets to suck on to take the pressure of your ears :)

    1. Oh how did I forget sweets! My ears pop really badly and it causes a lot of discomfort! They are an essential! X

  2. I love Burt's Bees lip balms! I have the one in pomegranate at the moment :-) xxx
