Holiday Essentials

Dress: M&S; Hat: H&M; Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets; Shoes: New Look; Cardigan: New Look; Bag: Topshop; Sunglasses: Topshop;


To those who don’t know, I’m going to Hong Kong for 10 days next month with a university friend. 10 days isn’t enough but I’ll be taking the touristy route, taking him to the famous places as well as dragging him shopping with me. Poor him. I will be visiting family as well whilst I’m out there. It’ll be like Rush Hour 2 according to him but without the action (He’s a big Rush Hour fan). Doesn’t sound as exciting does it? Call me Jackie Chan!

First of all, I must remember to pack light! I always make this mistake and purchase an obscene amount leading to a jam packed suitcase close to exploding. Luckily I haven’t been over the baggage limit as of yet. I have decided that I won’t be purchasing much as I can’t think of anything that I want or need. But will see what happens when I’m there. The image above is a part of what I’m planning to take and or make a cheeky holiday essential purchase before jetting off.

I can’t remember what the weather is like in mid April but I do remember that it will be hot and humid as I won’t be use to the climate over there with a possibility of cool days. This calls for a say hi to my relatives and ask about the weather conversation. I will have to do a what’s in my suitcase post when the panicking and packing nightmare starts. Right now, I’m planning and jotting outfits down, what and what not to take. Difficult decision.

Delicious food is waiting for me! Are you going on any holidays this year?

    I don't know if I'll go on holiday this year but I suggest you just bring some mix and match items. That's what works for me best. I love the selection in the pic too

    I know ten days won't be enough in a holiday vacation. I hope you enjoy though. Packing your wardrobe essentials is really necessary! GIG
