What's In My Holiday Bag?

It's finally come around! I go on holiday with my family and Sam on Saturday and I am seriously so excited, we've been planning this holiday since this time last year and it's going to be amazing to have some time away from everything.

As there's five of us going, I only have limited space to pack my things in, meaning I'm going to have to stick to the bare minimum makeup wise *cry*. So read on to see what's definitely going in my holiday bag!

Lyme Regis, where we're going on holiday.

Mini toiletries

When space is limited, I definitely can't waste precious inches with full size products. I have loads of teeny-toiletries that I'm taking away on holiday with me, including some Soap & Glory shower gels, body butters and shampoo. I'm also taking my bag of skincare samples by Benefit, all the perfect size for my holiday bag.

NYX foundation mixer

I am paler than pale and I rarely tan, so I'll be needing my foundation mixer for the first few days until I catch a little bit of sun. Hopefully then my foundation shade will actually match my skin without needing to be lightened!

Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation

As I mentioned in my Hello Flawless Foundation review, this is the perfect light foundation for summer so I'm excited to start using it properly along with my foundation mixer.

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

How can I resist? This is currently my favourite lipstick so I have to take it along on my hols! It's a gorgeously natural all-rounder shade which is perfect for both days and nights and makes my lips look sooooo plush.

Hair straightening balm

Because I am so not bothering with straighteners! My hair is really frizzy, especially now I've had a fringe cut in, and sunshine normally makes it a lot worse. I'm also taking my beloved salt spray to create some fabulous beachy waves on days where I'm not taking a dip in the sea.

LUSH Breath Of Fresh Air Toner

This toner is so refreshing and also doubles as a great makeup remover. It's the perfect piece of fuss-free skincare to take on holiday with me when I don't have room in my bag for my usual lotions and potions.

My sunglasses

Do they protect my eyes from the sun? Yes. Do I feel like Top Gun Tom Cruise whilst wearing them? HELL YES.


Because I am a total beach goddess, I'm obviously taking at least three different bikinis with me! The two pictured are from New Look and Asda and are my absolute favourite, most comfortable bikinis/ The black ones also looks really cute when worn with shorts and a lacy kimono cardigan.

What are you taking on your holidays?


  1. I love the bikinis! Asda and new look are my favourite shops to buy swimwear. They have such nice items and they are aflctually affortable. Have a fun holiday!
