I don’t think I will ever be one of those efficient packers. I’m always the one in my group of friends to over-pack and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s okay – someone is bound to need something you take, right?!


After changing hand luggage (the previous one was too structured and I decided last minute I needed more flexibility), I chose this black Mulberry-esque handbag from Matalan that has never failed me in the past. Slightly worn but still very loved, I can fit in all of my crap and have room for more if needed.


I have an early flight so a minimal face of makeup is important in feeling like I’m half awake, even if I don’t look it. A touch of concealer under the eyes and a bright lippy makes a world of difference…
