Weekend Away Essentials!


As I have mentioned previously, I was away last weekend, so I decided to photograph everything I took with me to show you guys!


First of all, I have three little samples of Prada Candy perfume. These are super handy to throw in a bag and smell beautiful. For a body moisturiser, I took my teeny tiny Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée. I adore this. It smells delicious. I would kill someone for the bath set of this scent… It’s definitely going on my Christmas list. And, finally, I took a bottle of Lush’s Snow Fairy shower gel; a classic! It smells of sweet banana’s to me and is just so mouth watering. I tend to hoard Snow Fairy all year, and then start using it now, as I know I will be able to get my hands on it again soon!!


For the face, I took a travel size of the Garnier Micellar water, for those nights where we would have had too much to drink. This  makes it super easy to remove make up (even waterproof mascara). It does’t irritate my eyes or skin either. I took a hot cloth cleanser too. I am trying to use up the Soap and Glory Ultimelt, it’s certainly not my favourite (review here!). To round off this threesome, I took my Johnson’s facial moisturiser. I really like this one, it has the classic Johnson’s clean scent and makes my skin feel really soft!
For hair stuff, I took some hair spray (which I don’t think I even used…). This isn’t the usual hairspray I buy, I buy a humongous salon style can, so I couldn’t take that! I then took a shampoo and conditioner from the Aussie Mega range. These make my hair feel a lot healthier and happier (and also smell incredible!!). I also took my trusty tangle teezer and my new discovery of the COLAB dry shampoo; I am telling you, this has changed my life (Review here!).
Boring stuff here… Just a Nivea roll Anti Stress Roll on, Mitchum deodorant and some Simple Cleansing wipes (because you never know!

I have this little, glittery GHD bag which is amazing… I has a space for your compact hair dryer and GHD’s, as well as a fold out, heat proof mat. It’s so handy!

Toothbrush, toothpaste and razor… I am sure you can figure out why!

  1. Great post! Useful to see what you take for a weekend away, as I’m going away soon. The Aussie hair care is always top of my list when I need smaller shampoo/conditioner. Like you said it smells amazing and really nourishes your hair! x
