Transatlantic Inflight Essentials...


Hello again!

I've taken an unintentional month and a half off from blogging. I don't know why, life just sometimes gets in the way and I've been chasing a promotion at work this last month, getting caught up in the busy hustle and bustle of running a restaurant during the summer holidays and most of all getting thoroughly excited for my holiday to the Caribbean in 3 days time. I can't believe it's come round so fast, counting down from 100 days only seems like it was five minutes ago and all of sudden I'm rushing around and praying my Very order arrives tomorrow or else it'll be far too late to take nice new dresses on holiday...!

Talking of holidays, I wanted to post today to show you what I've been planning to take on the plane with me. According to my TimeHop exactly two years ago today I was in Covent Garden having cocktails with my boy getting ready to fly to Florida and preparing my inflight beauty kit, and today is no different. As I'm not one for mega beauty regimes inflight, I'm normally more interested in getting cosy with a novel or a crossword, I've decided to bring a larger amount of products with me just in case the worst happens and I am without my toiletries (this year we're flying British Airways and we all know what happens to a lot of BA luggage!).

For my everyday essentials I'm taking two hair ties from Primark (you can guarantee one might snap!), a small packet of Kleenex tissues, some ear plugs, my toothbrush and mini toothpaste, and a Parisian inspired PocketBac hand sanitiser from Bath and Body Works. These are definite must haves on board the plane for me, especially the PocketBac for dealing with germs in the recycled cabin air!

I've decided to have a little skin pampering session in the sky too. As you'll be well aware by now, I have very dry skin and Origins moisturisers and products have always worked wonders for me so I'll be popping the GinZing eye cream and day moisturiser in my bag, as well as a hefty travel sized version of the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask which I absolutely adore.

I don't actually have much in the way of makeup as I am not really planning on wearing anything heavy. My face base for the entire trip will be the Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Cream in factor 30, and I also have the L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara (not pictured) which I am yet to try so I'm hoping for good things!

Finally I have a mini Factor 30 Hawaiian Tropic SPF to pop in my inflight essentials for pre landing application, I don't want to walk off the plane and burn straightaway as I have done before on holiday so I'm being extra safe from the beginning. It's also rather handy to have a mini suncream incase my luggage is lost and I have some to see me through for a couple of days, or even to pop this in my handbag for a day trip out on the sea.

Not an exhaustive kit by all means, but I'm trying to pack light for this vacation and I think I'm doing well so far!

What do you take with you on the plane?
Do you have an inflight regime?
