Lifestyle

27 December 2016

Holiday season is nearly here and for most of us that means planning an escape to some dreamy destination far, far away. Whatever your plans, whether abroad or closer to home, these handy essentials deserve some space in your suitcase:

1. A COMFY SLIDE OR SLIP-ON

You’ll be glad you bought a change of shoes for that longhaul flight or car ride. Whether it’s a pointy ballet flat or mule, your feet will love you!

2. FIRST AID KIT

Keep bandaids close by and cures at the ready with the all-important first aid kit.

3. A MUST-READ NOVEL

Spend one-on-one time with a good book. Also, especially great for rainy days and poor to no internet connection.

4. FACE MASK

Instant hydration for your skin and a much needed pick-me-up after a long day in the sun.

5. A VERSATILE SARONG

The kind that you can wear around your neck, on your head or over your swimsuit as a sarong.

6. ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH

A really great toothbrush can keep that smile bright and need no recharging for weeks.

7. ALL-IN-ONE TRAVEL ADAPTER

Power up your phone, iPad and straightener with one handy adapter whilst overseas.

8. A HOLDALL BACKPACK

It’s a tote, no it’s a backpack?! For when you have your hands full or need your hands free for other things (like shopping bags).

9. DRY SHAMPOO

Unkempt hair, don’t care! Dry Shampoo will see you through all those in-between hair days.

10. ALL PURPOSE REPAIR CREAM

For chapped lips and a myriad of other minor skin irritations you’ll be glad you packed this.

11. A SPARE TOWEL

For the beach, a spontaneous picnic or any destination where a hotel towel just won’t do.

12. A TROPICAL FRAGRANCE

There isn’t anything better than the spritz of a tropical scent post-flight plus you’ll forever be reminded of your holiday whenever you wear it.
