Look inside my (travel) handbag


As I prepare for my weekend in the UK (and then, later, my 9 days in the UK), I thought I’d show you what I take with me when I travel.

So here’s my #handbagconfession.

From the top: my Samsung Galaxy 7″ tablet, spare scrunchies.

Middle from left: my Midori Traveler’s Notebook, pocket mirror, Fossil wallet, pencil case, small tube of Rituals “Touch of Happiness” Orange & Cedar Wood Body Cream, business cards, mobile phone (picture shows my phone cover as I took the pic with my phone).

Bottom: glasses case with shades (or empty simply to store my normal glasses, depending on season), Bodyshop Tea Tree Blotting Tissues, Essence Roadtrip Deo Wipes, spare bobby pins, and one or two lipsticks (just in case).

Normally, I don’t take my tablet with me, but I need it as an eReader this time. For my London Trip, I’ll also take my Canon 3000V camera, a zoom lens and rolls of film with me.

Bear in mind, this is for city trips. My proper overland travel bag looks different.  Plus I wouldn’t take lipstick camping, for example. But when I know we’re going out, I keep it in the side pocket, should I need it.

What do you take with you?
