Everything You Need to Know

MY Suitcase Essentials

To continue on from yesterday, I’m now going to help you organize your suitcase! When purchasing a suitcase – its worth splashing the cash and getting an easily recognizable, good quality one. Saying that don’t buy one in a material that rips, scratches or rubs away easily as have you seen how the baggage handlers ‘handle’ our baggage!

Your suitcase should be broken up into different compartments and contain the following;


Get a soft drawstring bag to hold your underwear and bras. This will keep them in one spot and will keep the material in good condition.

Bathroom Bag

A leather or lined bathroom bag is preferable so that in the case of spillage, nothing seeps through onto clothes. Your bathroom bag should contain;

  • Shampoo & Conditioner (Decide on the size in relation to how long you are going away for)
  • TS (travel sized) Hair Treatment
  • TS Hair Mask
  • Dry Shampoo
  • Loofa
  • TS Face Scrub
  • TS Face Wash
  • TS Toner
  • Day Cream
  • TS Night cream
  • Serum
  • Pimple Cream
  • TS Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • TS Body Wash
  • TS Brush
  • Hair Ties
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair Band

Makeup Bag

  • Powder – Preferably a multi-tasking powder e.g Thin Lizzie
  • Foundation
  • Mascara
  • Eye Shadow Combo – Choose a generic based colour palette to take away with you
  • Bronzer
  • Blush
  • Eyeliner
  • Red Lipstick – To add a touch of glam anywhere in the world
  • TS Brush Kit

Medicine Bag

  • Travel-calm – For long bus/boat/car/train etc trips
  • Anti- histamine – In case you get an itchy bite or rash
  • Aspalgin – For migraines
  • Panadol – For any other pain
  • Voltaren – For muscle pains
  • Ibuprofen – Anti-inflammatory
  • Gastro-Stop – In case something doesn’t erm agree with your stomach
  • Water Purifying tablets – A lifesaver when you stay in dodgy countries
  • Durolax – Laxatives in case something ‘blocks you’

Other things to pack depend on when and where you are going, but fail-safe items include;

  • Books (Or the new ipad with all of your favourite books!)
  • One ‘going out’ dress (or more if your going somewhere to solely party!)
  • Walking shoes
  • Swimmers
  • A cardigan
  • Shorts, skirts and shirts
  • Thongs
  • A travel diary
  • Camera
  • Cash
  • Copies of all your travel documents, health insurance, ID and photo copies of your credit card in each separate bag

There you have it! Pack all of the listed items and you will be very thankful as you won’t forget or ‘need’ anything whilst you are away!

For those going away soon, have a great time and for others well print this of and put it with your passport!
