Today I'm off up to Manchester today to meet the rest of the family before we fly out to Turkey tomorrow morning. We have a super early 5am flight so Mum decided to get a Travelodge so it would be easier for us all to get there! I'm not sure what Im flying in tomorrow as of me scheduling this post. I normally wear leggings a vest and then a jumper because its always so cold on the plane the boiling when you get off! Im sure it will look a little bit like this though, maybe not the same coat!

I am taking my Zara messenger bag as my on flight bag though. Although its slowly falling apart as I've used it so much since I bought it. The bag fits my Macbook Air, Kindle and makeup in perfectly. I get so paranoid about lost luggage (paired with the fact Im hideous without makeup) that I always take my makeup and skin stuff as carry on as it's my most precious thing! I'll be doing a post on ETC when Im away with the stuff Im taking with me. I'm testing some waterproof makeup, SPF and lots of bronzers!

Not quite sure my hand looks so round and claw like in the right hand top photo! Oh well!

  4. Love the asos tunic and necklace! I know what you mean about lost luggage, I always have makeup and a bikini in my carry on. From past experience the bikini became an essential for me! Who knew it would be so hard to buy a bikini (that fits) in a ridiculously hot country? Hope you have a lovely holiday :) xx

  11. Argh I'm the same with make up - I've been thinkin about putting it in my hand luggage but doesn't it need to be clear?? Oh, wait no!! It can be in its normal packaging but it all has to be in a clear bag right? Thats sorted. I'd be so lost (har har) if my laura mercier tinted moisturiser was lost - Amongst other things, haha!

  26. I love this tunic. I think I will go for vest/leggings/jumper on my next flight as I always have such a panic about what to wear on the plane, far harder than deciding what to wear while on holiday! x

  34. Outfit looks very traveller chic! I am a fan! Did you take your piercings out?

    On the subject of taking makeup on the plane.. be careful as I have recently gone through Manchester Airport and they are pretty strict at the moment. It HAS to be in a clear bag (I use a Cath Kidston Zip Up Clear Make Up Bag) if not they do sell them at the airport for a pound but make sure you get them before you get scanned as we had to argue for some of the girls to avoid all of their stuff being taken away from them!

    Items can be no more than 100ml but a good tip is to only put your liquids in the bag.. any powders can be stored separately so I'd put them in another makeup bag and maximise your liquids space!

    Have a fab time!
