What's In My Bag: Travel Essentials

If you weren't aware, I'm off to Disneyland Paris in a couple of weeks! I also tend to take a lot of day trips with my Boyfriend, so what I put in my bag is extremely important. Especially for somewhere like Disneyland Paris, there is simply nothing worse than trekking to and from your hotel, ours is one of the ones that is about a 20 minute walk away, so it would take a big chunk out of our day should we forget anything. We are also travelling by Eurostar, so we need lots to keep us occupied, as well as snacks of course!

I've compiled a cheeky list of my travel essentials, so I've got a check list of what I need to take, and of course, some suggestions for you as well!

To start with, I always have a pouch of some form. This one is from Alphabet Bags and I must say I have at least 3 pouches in 3 different sizes and also a Wash Bag of theirs. It is safe to say that I love their products, which I very much do. I find uses for all of the sizes I have. I will be taking two to Disneyland, my largest one will fit pens, a notebook, my bullet journal and all of our documents that we need to take with us, and then this small Diamond one which will fit pretty much all of the below in it.

I will be taking hand sanitiser, as you never know what the queues will be like or say you get some ice cream on your hands, you don't want them sticky! So I will have a good selection of hand sanitiser with me. I will also take hand cream and this one from Trifle Cosmetics smells like Buttercream (good enough to eat!). I don't know about anyone else but depending on the weather, my skin can get so dry, so it's not too much to pack this in my bag. Of course, dry shampoo and hair ties like the invisibobble are very important and for the obvious reasons too! I cannot leave the house without any form of lip balm, I don't go overboard with it, but when I need lip balm, I really need it. I love the EOS ones, plus they last like forever, so I can't really go wrong. I do also make sure I have some form of tissues/wet wipes, you honestly never know when you may need it on a day trip.

These amazing PNY* Accessories will be coming with me on my travels all the time now! I am loving having these Portable Chargers, and the extra long iPhone cable too. Plus, these are Rose Gold which is pretty much my life now. The two Portable Chargers are very similar but they have one major difference, the larger one holds 3 full charges and the smaller 1 holds 1 full charge. I think this helps when choosing which one to take, if I know I'm going to be on my phone a lot or I am out for a really long period of the day, most likely the case for my entire Disneyland trip, then I will take the larger Portable Charger. Whereas if I know my phone battery will last most of the day and I only want it as back up then I will take the smaller one. The quality of these products is amazing, they live up to all my expectations and even exceed them. As I know often the case some portable chargers can be bad quality, these have worked wonders over the past few weeks and I have no doubt they will continue to help when I need to charge my phone!

So, to summarise, here are my travel essentials (plus a few extras):
  • Portable Charger
  • USB Phone Cable
  • Phone Charger (and Adaptors if needed)
  • Headphones
  • Notebook
  • Pens
  • Tissues
  • Hand Sanitiser
  • Hair Ties
  • Dry Shampoo
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Mints/Gum
  • Paracetamol/Ibuprofen
  • Travel Documents and Passport!
What are your must haves when travelling?
