If you haven’t already gone on your summer holiday, chances are it won’t be too far away. And if you’re anything like me, knowing what to pack can be a challenge. Although I may only be away for a few days or even a week or two. I always seem to over pack. I just can’t help it. But I wanted to share with you all my summer holiday essentials. To ensure you don’t over pack like me!

Fantasie Seychelles Swimsuit

Now I don’t know about you. But if there isn’t the sunshine and a sunbed. Then it’s not a summer holiday for me. Which is why swimwear is an absolute summer holiday essential for me. And this swimswuit from Simply Beach is perfect for the sunshine this year. As I’m getting a bit older, swimsuits are definitely my preferred swimwear choice. It’s also great to have different options when it comes to cup-sized swimwear. And this one just feels lovely on. It’s incredibly flattering as well and the pattern is so trend at the moment. You can find this swimsuit here.

Sunscreen & After Sun

Now along with swimwear, sunscreen is another essential. After all we don’t want to burn on holiday do we? Definitely not! And these Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen and After Sun just smell like holidays to me. The sunscreen offers SPF 30 protection which is perfect for me. And the After Sun is enriched with Aloe Vera which leaves a lovely cooling sensation when you’ve had a bit too much sun.

Miniature makeup and toiletries are perfect for travelling. And this mini set from Clinique is fab. With a mini mascara, chubby stick for your lips and chubby stick for your cheeks. This set has pretty much all you need for a sun kissed look. And sticking with the miniature theme, these nail polishes from Nails Inc are perfect for holidays. They’re small enough to travel with and the colours are perfect for your summer holiday.

    I can’t say I’ve tried any of these products or brands before! I definitely agree on the after sun care though. Super important to help soothe sore and sunburnt skin!

    Nails Inc is my favourite nail polish brand! My favourite colour is the Trafalger Square, which is a really vibrant opaque red! Great post, will need to try out the Clinique products! x

    That swimsuit looks stunning. For me miniture makeup and toiletaries are an essential and so is a good book x

    We love the pattern on the Fantasie Seychelles Swimsuit, it looks very summery and tropical. Can’t beat a good chubby stick and the intense colours are great for summer!

    I always take miniatures with me, especially because I never check in a bag while flying. Miniatures are great, you can carry them in your handbag and they don’t take a lot of space.

    I’ve never tried the Hawaiian sun creams but they look amazing – might pick those up for Ibiza!
