A Few Handy Holiday Picks..

I couldn’t do one post full of every single essential needed when travelling with a baby because let’s be real she took up 20kg of our 40kg luggage allowance. I wanted to do a quick post on a few things that I’ve brought away with me that I know I’ll use most days, and as obvious as some may seem, when you’re not just packing for yourself, it’s easy to forget some little things for yourself. 

Green People Sun Care

I was very kindly sent this sun protection from Green People, one for myself and one for Rosie. On hotter days I’ve used a factor 50 on us both, but the 30 has worked a treat for me on the few days that we’ve had a slight overcast. They are organic and scent free which is fab if you don’t like that strong smell that some sun creams have. 
As you may know already I’m very careful when it comes to my skin and I wear a very high factor for my whole holiday because I never really tan anyway. I hate the thought of damaging my own or Rosie’s skin with the sun so I’m always extra cautious. 

Umberto Giannini - Catch a Wave Coconut Oil Texture Spray

Ahh I love this so much! It’s perfect for when you have to go straight out after a day in the sun because it helps to nourish my hair, but also if you spray it on freshly washed hair, it helps to give it more texture for a loose beach curl. It makes doing my hair really quick which is much needed when you have a toddler trying to steal your brush ha!

ByEloise | London - Bangle Bands

The lovely Push PR team sent over this beautiful set of Bangle Bands; they are made by a brand called ByEloise | London, and the idea behind them is that they look more like a bracelet rather than a boring black bobble. I always seem to have a bobble on my wrist wherever I go, so this idea is revolutionary! My favourite is the grey one with the little star on, I think they’re so cute!

Carmex SPF15 Lip Balm 

Another sun care must for me is lip balm. When you burn easily like me, the sun catches everywhere that you don’t cover, so I wear this everyday to keep my lips protected and hydrated. 

I hope you like this post! It was National Sun Protection Week last week so hopefully everyone is using sun care in the warm weather. What are some of your must haves for holiday?
