Holiday essentials checklist

Ensuring that you have all the fundamental items you need for your holiday requires you to be savvier and organised than you might think.

This may be different for men - or not. But as a woman, I have essentials for various parts of my trip, from the plane all the way to what I would wear to bed. 

I'm not sure if I'm too organised, and I know that the 10 to-do lists that I write myself in the upcoming weeks to my trip are rather extreme and potentially unnecessary. Which is why, I decided to write My Holiday Essentials List. This hopefully will help you too and well you can just print it off as your very own checklist.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue


Since turning 25 two years ago, I have been extremely conscious of my aging skin. I know that makes me sound 100 years old, but I am being serious. I would like to age gracefully and hopefully, with my new regime and healthy lifestyle I will do so. I hope. 


Charlotte Tilbury packaging is always luxurious and great quality. I must say that  aesthetically, it's very pleasing to the eye and I just love the faux glass (it's plastic) container and rose gold combination.  The tub contains a large quantity of eye cream, even though when I held it for the first time, I did think I wasn't getting much for my money. 
At £40 per tub which only contains 15ml, you do expect a larger quantity for your money.


It leaves a dewy finish and you do get a slight shine on your skin. It does have a peculiar scent which I can't quite pin down. Not in a bad way, it just has its own uniqueness about it. On my skin, it sets well. I did find that I had to keep dabbing to begin with, but it slowly absorbs nicely. 


My skin felt as dewy as it did the day before. I do not get much puffiness or bags so I couldn't really say whether this would help if you suffered from these things. My eyes looked awake and moisturised which was a great feeling. I do think that this cream is slightly heavy, so would work perfect in the winter - not so much in the summer months if you live somewhere warm. Fortunately, I am from the UK and it's usually gloomy and cold here. Lucky us!
