When you’re travelling around, there is nothing worse than carrying a heavy handbag full of un-needed bits and pieces. Invest in a small leather handbag that has versatile compartments for carrying these 7 functional essentials and have the time of your life exploring new beaches, cities, and destinations with ease & comfort!  

TIP: Always invest in a handbag with a long strap so you can hang it over your shoulder or across your chest. 

 

1.  PASSPORT + I.D

A non-negotiable for any trip, always make sure you carry a valid form of I.D or your Passport on you at all times. 

 

2. CAMERA

An essential so you can capture those pinch me moment during your trip. My go-to is the LUMIX DMC-LX100.

 

3. MOBILE PHONE + PORTABLE MOBILE CHARGER  

Don’t get caught out with no source of communication. It’s really important when you travel to make sure you have ample charge on your mobile incase of an emergency.

 

4. EMERGENCY KIT

Invest in a small leather pouch that can hold your emergency kit including Panadol, Band Aids, Detol Wipes, Lip Balm, Mini Sunscreen, Hair Tie, Medication, Sunglasses.

 

5.  WALLET

No explanation needed! 

 

6. BEAUTY FAVES

When you’re out exploring beautiful locations & cities sometimes day can quickly turn into night. Carrying your beauty faves with you (just the essentials like tinted moisturiser, lipstick, mascara, mini perfume) can allow you dress up your look ready for dinner and cocktails! 

 

7. PEN + NOTEBOOK

Write down everything from your accommodation address and emergency contacts to your favourite moments from each day and recommendations others have given you. 

 

EXTRA: If possible carry a turkish towel or lightweight scarf with you. It’s the perfect accessory for multiple purposes, including using it as a throw, beach towel, sun protection, sarong, head scarf etc.
