Holiday Must Haves and Check List

I’m usually really good when it comes to packing for a holiday or trip. But this year it’s been really bad. I’ve forgot essentials … Can you believe I didn’t even pack my all in one swimsuits! This will not be happening again.

Holiday Necessities

Statement colourful dress with a pair of heals. I always find that wedges work better especially on holiday. You have the heels but are supported at the same time.

A few tops straps & strapless! Mix and match the colour have fun with it. Don’t forget some matching (not literally matching) shorts to go with it.

The members luggage sets are awesome. You have the these ones in the bright colours you will not miss this on the conveyor belt… Won’t be blending in with everyone else’s.

The two types of flats shoes. The sandals & the flip flops! You can never go wrong with two pairs for different occasions.

For all you ladies with the lovely tummies don’t forget your bikinis & for me who is not to fortunate … The one pieces. Of course I forgot all my one pieces at home GUTTED.

For lounging your kaftan the one in the pictures is absolutely lush!
And to look super cool those all important sunglasses!

Last but not least that all important camera. I know all phones now have super awesome cameras but you can’t beat a gorgeous bridge camera – I love my Panasonic Lumix FZ150
I take it everywhere, even to the supermarket can’t miss out on brilliant pictures of Hayden.

Like I said I forgot a lot of items for myself this year so here’s a list to help you when you travel
