Seems like only the other day, I was manically hunted down the perfect holiday to celebrate Danny’s (bf) birthday in style. Now it’s only 8 days until we are whisked away to paradise and I am so excited I could squeak! I have 20kgs for my suitcase and 5 kgs for my hand luggage that I could use, so I thought I would write a list as to what I will be taking, as I love me a list. It’s more of a mental checklist for me than anything.
Clothes & Accessories
Bikinis x 3
Bra x 2
Pants x 7
Beach Dresses x 3
Evening dresses x 6
Flip flips x 1
Sliders x 1

Sun tan lotion + Aftersun – I have 50 spf and 30 spf because I don’t want to peel and get lizard skin
Shampoo & Conditioner – I have the travel containers from Primark, so I can decant my favourites & take them with me.
Temporary Colour Hair Spray, for when my purple fades.
Dry Shampoo – For dem greasy days.
Micellar Cleansing Water + Cotton Wool – I used to really love using facial wipes, but since this stuff has been on the market, I really prefer using this with a cotton pad to remove all of my make up. I specifically bought a 125 ml, rather than my 500ml beast of a bottle.
Toothbrush + Toothpaste
Razor – I have booked a pre-holiday wax, but I don’t trust my armpit hair to behave, so just in case.
Hairdryer + Straightners
Peter Storms Waterproof Packable Jacket – Previously I used to buy crappy pack-a-mac for like a fiver and surprise, surprise I would get soaking wet. But being that where I’m going does have tropical weather, I thought I would go to Millets and get something that is LEGIT. For £15
Jungle Spray (Maximum) – I got two of these bad boys, as I am not taking any chances
Pineswood’s Bites and Stings Relief Cream – I found this cream at savers for a £1 and fingers crossed, I don’t get bitten, but if I do, I hope this stuff works.
Ibuprofen – For those just in case moments of unexpected headaches etc
Imodium Instants – You never know if your stomach is gonna get upset from the food on holiday, especially as it is an all inclusive, I don’t trust my body not to get upset. Anyone else have a sensitive stomach?
Mosquito Repellent Bracelets – They are all natural, waterproof so I’m gonna wear one on both my wrists and both my ankles for extra protection!
Gadgets And Other Bits & Bobs
Books x 3
USA & Asia Travel Adapter
Waterproof bag – I got this for the beach, so that I can take my expensive belongings in the sea with me in case I want to paddle. I got this from Amazon, and there has been lots of good reviews on this, so hopefully, my phone doesn’t die!
Ticket/Booking confirmation – flights, accommodation etc
My excursion voucher that I pre-booked for us.
I think that is everything! I hope you enjoyed this post, if you think I’ve missed anything, tell me before the 12 June 2017. If you’re reading this in the future, don’t bother trying to help me pack as it’s too late – haha, oh I assume myself.
Until next time xo
