Summer Travel Essentials


It is definitely that time of the year where we are all off on holiday or on day trips. I personally don't take holiday at this time of year, mainly because my job does not allow it. Instead I take plenty of day trips. Some we have been on and also have planned are:
  • Monkey World
  • The Beach
  • Shopping Trips
  • Legoland
  • Planetarium
We are also off to a gaming convention, EGX, in Birmingham in September, so we will be needing plenty of Travel Essentials for that and the following things are going to be absolutely perfect!

I always make a list, because I'm an organised freak and I always have the same things on my list every time.


Stationery:
I do always have stationery with me, I feel a bit lost if I don't have a bit of pen and paper in my bag. This little Kate Spade set* is perfect, it has everything I need, some pencils, sticky notes, washi tape, you name it, it is in here! The Tackle Box is perfectly easy to pop in my bag when I'm going out so that I can quickly jot something down on a sticky note when I need it. You never know when all of these blogging ideas are going to come to us!

Drinks:
I absolutely never leave the house without a drink, another item that feels so odd if I'm not carrying a bottle around with me! This Kate Spade Tumbler* is perfect for taking in the car for those day trips, I can fill it with whatever drink I like, even add a few ice cubes, and sit it in my car to have when I need to. I don't need to worry about it spilling either (omg when did I become such an Adult?), as the lid screws on. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the gold dots too?

Technology:
A key thing in this day in age. I will personally rarely leave the house without a phone charger and power bank. If I'm off for a day out, I will definitely have a power bank, iPhone cable and plug, therefore wherever I am I can charge my phone! I will also have my headphones on me, just in case I want to drown out the noise of others listen to some music!


Wash Bag:
So I may go a bit crazy when I take toiletries somewhere, when we go to EGX in September, I will cram literally everything I possibly can into my Wash Bag (which is huge FYI, I mean look at this adorable Elephant Wash Bag*). I mean I might change my mind on what I want to use when I get there, and there is literally nothing worse than running out of some of your toiletries and having to find somewhere that sells what I need, but at extortionate prices, am I right?! I will always have separate products I take away with me, saves time for me to repack when I know I'm going away for a night soon after, this Elephant Wash Bag is the one currently packed. I love the material of it and the detail in the embroidery, it's so pretty!!



Extra Large Bag:
Just look at this bag, how perfect is this for taking away?! This Extra Large Tote Bag* is amazing for practically any day trip, it is absolutely huge and would fit in everything you can possible imagine for taking away with you. I know it would be perfect for us to take to the Beach, with two towels, change of clothes and a picnic! Now I am all about saving space! This will be one I will take to EGX with us, for extras like snacks and anything we just chuck in a bag quickly before we go, you know the type of thing I mean!

All the above items can be found on the Amara* website, under Travel Essentials.

What must you have when you are travelling? Are you off on holiday or for any day trips soon?
