Holiday packing 2020

Hi lovelies,

So we were on a 8 days/ 7 nights holiday in Croatia. dispute the car space we have packed lightly but we did had more than everything. We choosed to in hotels, 3 nights with breakfast,4 with half board. We brought 1 mid-size and a cabin suitcase, a parasol and 2 backpacks(+6 boltles of 1,5l mineral water- than we refilled with tap water). Inside I have fitted my cream crossbody bag and a cooler bag to one of our backpacks for the food and drinks. So how did we travel so light?

I love to pack by category, so to the backpacks we did put food for the travel and a lot of snacks and fruits for the beach to do not waist time with shopping until the 4th day when we do had to travel to our second destination. Of course of money, passports,masks, iPad,phones, documents and my little vanity was also in it.

Cabin-size luggage: was so the beach stuffs: 2 bikinis, 2 shorts, 2 swim shoes, a plaid, 2 sets of travel towels, googles, sunscreens and after sun + magazines , flip-flops and my hubby’s small pillow and Teddy.

Main luggage: is ideal that we can share by half so I have used the KonMari methode to flod all the clothes. I am going to write only my side: I have used pretty much everthing, except my rain coat, linnen jogger and my pullover. I have packed a linnen short with 2 tops, demin skirt, 4 dresses and 2 dresses for the beach- I will just show them in a next post-, sport bra and sport, running shoe and underwears.

Vanity and make-up: as we were stayed in hotels, I have decided not to bring sampoo and shower gel as they are always provided. I have put some conditioner to a travel jar and The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil, along with a comb for my haircare. Omorovicza Cleasing Foam I was so amazed by, it is probably the best gentle cleaner I have ever used, so glad that once I have received a 30ml travel size from them, because I just using it since we got home so in total 3 weeks and still have ca. 75% of it. I have also put some micellar water in a travel jar, and my La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra face and eyecream, which I just got from my sister for my birthday and these are also superb.

I rarely wore makeup on holidays, so I have packed my holy grail Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara in travel size, It Cosmetics CC in Light Medium (my tan shade), Hourglass Ambient Lighting edit-Ghost palette, E.l.f. Instant Lift Brow Pencil in Neutral Brown and a Trend It up Waterproof Eyeliner Pen (not worst the money at all) and some tools: eyelash curler, Smashbox Buildable cheek, Bobbi Brown Face Blender and ABH eye brush which comes with her eye palettes. Unfortunately masks are not friends with lipsticks so I only took those which are always in my small vanity: Camex and a nude.

Xoxo,

Holiday packing

Hi lovelies,

The summer nearly ended… but finally we are going to our holiday. Yeah next year should rather go in the middle of the summer as I feel really tired for a couples of weeks, way too much of works.

Even we are going by car to Croatia and then to the Lake Balaton, I tried to be as minimalistic as can be and do not do over packing. Friday I have checked what we have at home and today we will just buy a couple more things- mainly food. We will stay in a hotel and our reservation is with a half board, so we do not need to cook at all. Insurance, money exchange done, so let’s see whatI have packed:

Face and skincare:

I always keep the little samples, which I receive so it is really useful for travelling, so all the for hair conditioner, the Nivea haarmilch sampoo, Omorovicza cleansing foam and the two Sensodyne toothpastes were free. The empty plastics I received at Hard Rock Café a while ago on a PR event, which two willbe filled with my showergel and one which some more shampoo, from home. I am taking my Ouai Wave spray and try to use up the leave-in conditioner. I will take my correctly used face, eye and body cream, the mosquito spray, deodorant, comb and of course the toothbrush. Only bought the 7 to 3 Lush face cleaner and the two sun protection stuffs for this trip newly.

You might wanna ask: the hotel not providing any amenities? I do not know, but I do not think it is etnical and sustainable. (Yes my simples too , but these are either I am using up or take it to the trash, while in the hotel it can stay for the next guests.)

Makeup:

Waterproof mascara and the liner is a must at the beach, my belowed Tarte Flirt palette is anumber one for travel, now for the summer my new NYX Ultimate palette is nice compliment of it. I try to use up my Essence brow gel, TB concealer, Mac strobe cream, BB Bronzer and of course the Cover FX powder and the Natasha Denona Blush and also the little samples are ideal for travel. The It Cosmetics CC has SPF 50, the BB rouge is red so it is a statement and the Glow spritz I just one to try out a bit more. As for the brushes I am taking a Real Techniques sponge, BB Face -blender, RT setting, MAC 217 and a Zoeva Pencil brush. (not pictured as they are dirty)

Shoes, bags and accessories:

Sandal is a must- brown, pair of sneakers (running of if it is too cold), black -Birkenstock and the swimming shoes for the rocky hills. My new Bag from my Hubby, which is cream, gymbag for the beach (as we bring only sport towels) and a black crossbody for the darker clothes. Necklance for the beach, some hair pins and rubbers and the crop earring.

Clothes:

Probably the most hardest to pack, because women would love to take everything. 8 painties, 3 pairs of socks, 2 bikini tops, 3 bottoms, demin jacket, sport bra and short are easy, but the rest…

Okay convinced: I will travel in my red jumpsuit, black jumpsuit is good for a dating night, this orange dress for an other dressy day, yellow short dress for the beach, linen short and a jeansskirt with 4 more tops.

So only my hubby’s stuffs, manicur and some medical things left, but it is time to shop some snacks…

Xoxo,

 

My ultimate packing list for Thailand

Hi everyone!

We have just arrived from our honeymoon, we sent 2 weeks in Thailand. Honestly, my packing was simply perfect: not over packed (18kg only from 30), had items for every occasions, so no extra purchase due to weather conditions or religious regulations. Read my packing list and hacks/tips by categories below:

Skin and hair care

This is my number 1 tip to keep the samples and make a use of them during your travel! Even thought hotels do provide toiletries, but the quality might not meets your expectations. Samples I brought: Mac lipscrub, Clinique: Prep start (15ml!) moisturizer, conditioners from Palette hair dye(from my sis), mini perfumes and shower gel (75ml!) which I have received from previous purchases at Douglas (like Sephora), small body lotion(60ml) from Body Shop box, Bobbi Brown oily make-up remover.

  • Tissue mask by Balea
  • Body Shop’s Wild Argan oil
  • toothpaste and toothbrush

Make-up:

At tropical weather you do not need so much of make-ups but a bit of course. For everyday I only used my Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Waterproof version in travel size as my lashes are blondes… for day trips I was made a use of Bobbi Brown’s BB (fair shade) as it has spf 35, my Blonde BB brow pencil and L’Oreál  Perfect Slim liner, BB Sandwash Pink Lipcolor and used blocking film  paper instead of powder.

It was really strange checking my summer clothes in the middle of winter, so most of the clothes was already existed in my wardrobe. As for bikinis and swimsuits I tried to bring those which perfectly mixed together and finally I did not used my swimsuit…

Hacks: as we had 3 hotels, so I tried to pack to be no need to unpack all the time, so folding the clothes 4 times to be able to see them and used IKEA ISTAD bags to save space in our bags.
