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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
