Holiday Essentials

As most of you know I had a pretty big year last year within my career and I’m not going to lie, I felt absolutely exhausted. There was one point where I am sure I was working seven days a week. So myself and my husband decided to take three weeks off work mid January this year to travel. We started off in LA, moved onto Las Vegas then Hawaii and finished up in Mexico.

It was the best thing I ever did as I came back well rested. So three weeks away with not a lot of luggage space meant I had to be clever about what products to bring. Here is a list of my must-have holiday essentials.

We all need to wash our face and remove makeup so the perfect all in one product is Shiseido Cleansing Oil. I would have been lost without it! It melts your makeup off, gets rid of heavy duty mascara and cleanses the skin. I love this product for travel.

I don’t like to wear much makeup when I am away, it’s great to give the skin a break, but one product that I cannot live without is Maybelline Lash Sensational. It’s EPIC! Its’ so affordable and you can get 3 for 2 as it’s always on offer. Although I like to wear minimal makeup, I cannot live without a good mascara. I found this gorgeous image from Thirteen Thoughts blog, she gives this product a fantastic review too!

A massive beauty bargain! Every girl needs a red lipstick on a holiday and Primark PS Long Last Lipstick in Victoria Red is under €3 and looks and feels great on the lips. Penneys have really come up in the world regarding beauty, I’m kind of obsessed!

Cocoa Brown Rose Gold Goddess is shimmering dry body oil, it’s absolutely gorgeous on the skin when you have a tan. I felt like a queen walking around Hawaii with this lathered all over my body.

I hope you enjoyed my blog it’s been a while.
