When travelling is is important to travel as light as possible. This way you don't have to schlep your things endlessly with you, you never have to worry about luggage weight and you have more room for those exciting overseas purchases.
With this in mind, here is my daily essentials for travel so that you can pack as light as possible.
1: The Longchamp bag
It would not surprise many women to hear that your day to day handbag is quite heavy. For this reason always travel with a Longchamp bag. It is so light and packs easily if you purchase a bag while travelling.
2 Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour cream
Use it as a moisturiser, lip balm and hand cream. Great is warm weather or very cold. This is a must.
3 The Make up bag
Stuff it with band aids, paper, pen, perfume, lipstick, earphones and more. This will help you when on the go of a day and every night as well. There is nothing in here that won't get used on any sort of journey. Band aids will help keep you walking, even with blistered feet, earphones will keep you entertained or at least disengage you from odd strangers and a Chanel Boy lipstick will help you be ready for anything- even a last minute opera.
All those loyalty card offers are just as good overseas as at home (some even better); do sign up for them and keep them for your next visit. Always take a card from your hotel so that if you can't find your way back (it happens) you can at least get a cab and show them the address to find.
