Hey guys! Today I thought I would write a ‘what’s in my travel bag’ post as I’m jetting off to Spain. I must apologise as this will probably be published a little bit later than anticipated, but that’s because I’ll be sunning myself by the pool. Anyway, let’s have a look at what I’m taking with me….
What's in my Travel Bag?What's in my Travel Bag?

The Bag

On this trip I’m travelling with my brand new Faux Leather Double-Zip Satchel (which is def a dupe for the Prada Saffiano by the way!). It’s the perfect bag as it has a lot of compartments for storing all my stuff.

Non-Beauty Items

Inside the bag itself I have the latest edition of Cosmo mag and my phone and earphones as I like to listen to music while I read on the plane. I also have a portable phone charger as I usually spend some time editing pics and don’t want my phone to go flat. Other essentials include my sunglasses and our passports ready for when we get off the plane. I keep our passports in a rose gold pouch so they’re easy to locate at all times. It came as part of this set here, which I often use to travel with too. Today I’m only bringing the pouch and the makeup bag.

Beauty Items

I’ve got quite a lot of makeup with me such as Hoola, Galifornia*, a Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner, and my Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil. In terms of liquids I have a few products including Nivea Sun Lotion, toothpaste (and my travel toothbrush), a Garnier BB Eye Cream, Collection Concealer, Chanel foundation, a small bottle of YSL Black Opium*, Carmex Lip Balm* and Volume Shake by Rimmel* as I’m currently testing it out. There’s also a few tissues, some anti-bacterial wipes and my favourite deodorant which is by Sure.

The only thing I haven’t mentioned is snacks as I haven’t purchased them yet. I usually buy a bottle of water, some rolls, a tub of Pringles and a chocolate bar of some sort. Not very healthy I know!

What do you like to take in your bag when travelling? Anything that’s different to me?

  • Ohhhh I wonder what’s in your travel bag!! I plan on visiting Spain next year. hear their seafood is out of this world. Enjoy the sun and the pool! I’m heading to New Orleans and can’t wait to feel the heat. Cosmo used to be my favorite mag, I haven’t read it in awhile. I think I’ll pick one up. A portable phone charger is a must! Looks like you’re ready for a fun filled trip! 😉

    • Yes, I can’t go anywhere without my Juice Cube! I’ve never been to New Orleans but it sounds amazing. Have a lovely time. X

  • I DIE for whats in my bag posts. Love it. And much respect to the Pringles. Ain’t no shame in that game.

  • Enjoy your holiday! I always bring a hand santiser, earphones/ipod, perfume, chewing gum and hand cream if it’s a short flight – longhaul is a whole other ball game! xx


    • Oh yes, I totally agree! On a longhaul I’ve got earplugs, eyepatches and all sorts of lotions and potions! Xx

  • Yess I love that Rimmel mascara and that Collection concealer is amazing! X

  • I have no idea why I’ve yet to purchase a portable charger, it’s definitely a must, especially when traveling! It’s so smart that you keep your passports in a designated bag for easy access, it’s those small things that make the whole process that much easier and faster! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great day so far!



    • Oh yes, I can’t go anywhere with out a portable phone charger! Have a lovely day Jalisa. Xx
