What's in my hand luggage?
With a lot of you going on holiday over the summer, I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you what I take in my hand luggage on flights. This usually varies slightly depending on whether I'm going on a long-haul or short-haul flight, so I've focused this post towards a short-haul flight because that's what I'll be taking this summer.
Firstly, I pack a comfy jumper because I usually get cold on flights due to the air con. Also, if I want to fall asleep, then I'll use my jumper as a pillow. Next, I put a book and a magazine in my bag, which gives me something to do whilst I'm on the plane. The book I'll be taking on holiday with me this year is Dream A Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher (this gets really good reviews and I can't wait to start reading this!). I also bring my Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera in my bag in case I want to take any snaps in the airport or whilst I'm on the plane - I love this camera so much and you should definitely get one if you haven't already! I always pack a Palmer's Cocoa Butter lip balm (which is really moisturising) and a hand cream because my hand's become dry quite quickly. Normally, I'll throw in a hand sanitiser too because I worry about picking up germs on the plane and getting ill whilst on holiday. I bring a purse containing both pounds and euros so I can do a bit of duty free shopping beforehand - typical blogger! In case I'm not in the mood to read my book, I pack headphones too so that I can listen to music. Finally, I bring a pair of sunglasses in my hand luggage because I hope to step off the plane to 30 degree sunshine (or just some sunshine in general!).
Where will you be jetting off to this summer and what's your favourite thing to bring with you?
