I love exploring new countries and trying out new things, but when I’m on a short break in the UK, I’m a creature of habit. I guess it’s because I know that I can have all the products that I enjoy on a daily basis whereas on a holiday abroad the adventurer in me comes through.
When holidaying here, I like to take my favourites with me:
My Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
I have used this body wash every single day for the past two years and I’m not prepared to make an exception on holiday. The scent of lime is incredibly refreshing and gives me a kick start in the morning.
I don’t know what it is with people in the UK, but wherever you go, the only tea available is Earl Grey or English Breakfast tea. I don’t like either of them, so always make sure to pack some bags of my favourite fruit tea – usually something cherry or berry based.
Chargers for everything
I seem to have a phobia of being disconnected from the outside world, so whenever I go somewhere, I triple check that I have chargers for absolutely everything on me – my phone, my camera, my laptop, Amy’s Leap Pad and everything else there is.
I’m a magazine addict, so before every holiday or short trip, I pack some of my favourite magazines. With Amy around, I don’t really have much time to read them, but I always think that holidays are different – usually they’re not and I bring them all back home without having even touched them.
I know it’s odd and I also know that most places provide you with towels during your stay, but I have a huge grey beach towel that I take absolutely everywhere. It’s so soft and the perfect size to cover your entire body in after a quick shower in the morning or a long soak in the bath. It takes up masses of space in my suitcase, but I never travel without it.
What are your holiday must-haves? Is there anything you never travel without?
