Hand luggage only?


Choosing to not have any hold luggage is nice and a quicker overall process. Your not waiting ages for the luggage to come off the plane and worrying whether it got 'lost' or not. This summer I'm going away on two holidays both flying with easyJet and I've chosen to just take hand luggage away with me on both of my trips.  I take a small suitcase that fits into the overhead lockers and also a small under arm bag. For a beauty obsessive this is hard as your limited to the amount of liquid you can take. It's cut throat and not everything makes the cut, so heres how I get around it.

Of course the usual items make the cut to help get through the flight which include my Kindle (which is the old one but still going strong). I tend to purchase a magazine whilst in airport too. My phone is will obviously come along with me and just incase I over use it or my Kindle I have my PNY power bank which gives one full charge (perfect for a short flight). Lastly my RayBan sunglasses ready for landing as I suffer with a lot of head aches from squinting too much. 

Now on to the beauty:

The only product I will actually actively use whilst on the plane is the Dr PawPaw balm. My lips tend to get really chapped whilst around air con so need to keep them nourished. It's really great as it's multi purpose and can be used on dry skin, lips and even a hair smoother. 

Every item you take on board thats a liquid has to be 100ml or less and must fit in the clear bag the airport provide. This makes it hard to take everything I use on a daily basis, so cut right back and don't take things like serums and masks. Miniatures are your best friend and get everything from skincare to shower stuff in a miniature size. This bag of liquids has to go through the scanner on its own and out of your suitcase and must be able to do up. 



Everything else that you can't spray or pour can remain in your suitcase and doesn't need inspection. In this bag I have things like lipsticks, emergency face wipes and eyeshadows (I'll add brushes and tools to this nearer the time after washing them). 



I obviously would love to take more so I had stuff to choose from however this is what I have chosen to work with. It's not as bad as people think and I do manage a week on this just fine. 

Next time you go away think about whether you actually need to have hold luggage and whether you could make your journey easier by just having hand luggage?

Have you done this before?

xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
