New York City - Hand Luggage


I'm off to 'The Big Apple' on Saturday, although this being my third time, I am as excited as the first! There is something about New York that steals your heart away, especially the first time, and leaves you wanting more! 

As I have been doing 'mountains' of revision...well it feels like that, I thought I would grab a cup of tea, and head upstairs to rifle through my bags, find my Longchamp and see what i'm taking as hand-luggage on Saturday!


(Longchamp La Pliage - Short handle Duck egg Blue)

THE most practical bag, ever. I have converted most of my friends, and my mum to be 'Longchamp' carriers and they all now love them as much as I do! These bags are great investments if you travel a lot, or just want a really study everyday bag.


(My 'Highway Code' book and Kindle)

I am currently reading 'Looking for Alaska' on my kindle, a book by one of my favourite authors, 'John Green', my favourite book of his is 'The Fault in Our Stars', a must read for dreamers and anyone who love a good old romantic/soppy book. I also, reccommended by my driving instrctor will be bringing along my 'Highway Code' book. ( Need to pass my theory ASAP!)


(Urban Outfitters Aztech Purse, My Passport, Mulberry Coin purse and Jack wills card holder)

Not the most interesting, although let's take a minute to drool over my Mulberry coin purse...Other than that just the 'essential' things that I need to remember...


Just some snacks for the journey to the airport, mmmm Caramel nibbles!


(Loccitane Hand Cream, Kiehls Moisturiser, Avene Spray, Clarins Lip Perfecter, Revlon Lip Butter, Carmex Lip Balm, Estee Lauder Day Wear and Lumi Magique Concealer)

Remembering that you can only take products of a certain amount, I have chosen a selected few to take on the flight with me (mainly with moisturising properties), in a see through bag.


(Bed socks, Hair tie and Grip)

I cannot remember the last time I didn't bring a pair of bed socks with me on a flight, it just seems to make the journey, especially the long ones, 'complete', and just a little more comfy.


(Paracetamol and Kwells)

I have always suffered with very bad motion sickness, so 'Kwells' are an essential for me, whenever I travel. They are very effective and work within less than 20 minutes! I highly recommend!

          THE PEN AND PAD

Naughts and crosses are definitely something that I will be amusing myself with, mid journey, plus I will probably rope my mum into playing with me (well, i'll try!). I also, nearly everywhere I go make a list of what I want to do in the particular place, I will try and snap some pictures mid-flight as to what I get up to!

Thank-you for reading.

What do you usually take in your hand luggage?
