Pack With Me - What I Take For A Weekend Away

Today I thought I would do something a bit different and talk about what I am packing for our two trips over the next week! I love posts like this as I'm a bit nosy and love to know what others take with them!

I've written about makeup, toiletries and a few extras so you can see what sort of things I'll be taking on both trips and what essentials we'll both be needing. As there is such a short amount of time between when we get back from London and when we go to Manchester, we don't have that much time to be unpacking and repacking so I'm trying to take basic makeup, skincare, toiletries etc. so that they can just stay in the bag and the only things we'll really need to change will be clothes.


I very rarely change up my make up, I stick to the same sort of brands so my travel makeup won't really be any different to usual. I'll be taking my favourite foundation which is the Rimmel Long Lasting Foundation (review here), Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit, Rimmel Lasting Finish Blusher (review here), Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara (review here), Maybelline Matte Maker Powder and of course my Real Techniques brushes. I will be taking my miracle complexion sponge but it looks disgusting so I didn't really want to take a picture of that!


I have to take my trusty Garnier Micellar Water for removing my makeup at the end of the day, I very rarely use anything else on my face (bad I know) but this is something I know doesn't irritate my skin and does the job. I might just end up taking a disposable razor but for some reason I took a picture of this one, it's actually really good and my legs feel so smooth after using it.I managed to get some of those mini travel bottles for all our toiletries so there's one with my Herbal Essences Shampoo in, one with Herbal Essences Conditioner and one has Lynx Shower Gel in for George, I've also got a mini shower gel of mine in there too. There's a few things I haven't taken pictures of like toothbrushes and toothpastes but obviously we'll be taking those. Then there is my tangle teaser which is just great. I'm taking a Sure deodrant and a body spray, obviously they'll be some Lynx or something for George too, and then I always take my little kit with tweezers and scissors in.


Obviously we need to take phone chargers and other essentials too but I didn't really think I needed to take a photo of those! They'll be one for my iPhone and one for Georges phone, we'll be taking iPods so we need a charger for that too. I'll be taking my hair straighteners just in case, I actually quite like my hair just natural at the moment but I don't want to not take them and regret it! I'm going to pack a few books as the train journey is a few hours to London, I am still yet to finish Me Before You so I'll take that and then I might take Me After You aswell. One of the last things I need to pack is the Wicked tickets, I would honestly cry if we forgot those, and I need to make sure I've got things like our railcard and bank cards. I'm not going to go into what clothes we're packing because to be honest I have no idea yet what I'm going to wear! I got this Dark Green Split Back Top from New Look last week so I think I'll wear that one day, it's really comfortable and it goes well with my new pumps. Apart from that I really don't know, I'll have to have another look later as that's the last thing I need to sort.

I think everything is just about sorted now and once I've properly sorted what clothes need packing then it's all done and we're ready to go!

I hope you've enjoyed this post, I've never done anything like this before but I've really enjoyed writing about it all and it's another way for me to check we've got everything!
