What's In My Suitcase...

Ok, I know that the last few months have seemed like a permanent holiday in Mouseland. 

There was Lombok. Then there was Tuscany. Followed by Malaysia. And let's not forget Portugal...

I know that I haven't even been back in Hong Kong long enough to sort through the photos of my last trip, let alone blog about it, but I'm off again... This will be my last trip for a couple of months though so I intend to make the most of it. I'm heading off to Cambodia for a little temple gazing chased up with some beachy sunsoaking. I'll be back and blogging about it by the start of August but in the meantime, here's a sneak peek at what I'm packing in my suitcase. Best of all, lots of my holiday picks have been reduced in the sales. Beach bargains? Ready, steady, shop...

Juicy Couture Camellia Bikini
Bottoms £21/ Top £23

Cut price Couture of the juicy variety! This pretty two piece gives the black bikini a girly boost with bows and blooms.

Free People Trapeze Slip Dress

I bought this Free People dress when I was in the US a couple of years ago. Still available, and now it's a bestseller, in a whole heap of colours, this is the perfect throw-over to take you from sun lounger to sun downers.


This bronzer not only gives your tan a boost but also delivers seriously glowy, goddess cheekbones. A holiday beauty essential.


Love, love, love this slinky black maxi that gives great back. Chuck it on over a bikini, or dress it up in the evening with a pendant and a slick of lipgloss.


Speaking of pendants, this is my absolute fav. Gives any look a boho-polished edge and at a fab price.


This is my dress of the summer. Loose and easy, yet the low-cut back and a plunging neckline keep it chic. Slashed to just £19.99 in the sale, buy it now, in fact, buy two...


Bronzy, buttery shadows that look awesome with a tan particularly if you have blue eyes. Beach bombshell just a swipe away.


Another cut-price bargain. I fell in love with this maxi at the start of the summer but somehow managed to resist. All my willpower slipped away when I saw it had been seriously reduced.  Adore the pretty back and light, breezy cotton.


My number one travel essential. Mine's currently loaded with all manner of beachy reading that I can't wait to bookworm my way through!


One of my favourite holiday dresses. Love the contrast between the neon belt and the gauzy white dress - a killer combo with a tan.


My hair tends to get battered after a few days of sun, sea and sand particularly if the hotel toiletries aren't up to much. Step up Moroccan Oil to save the day. I go for the light version because my fine hair gets too weighed down with the normal formula.


Yet another bargainous beauty! Short, flippy and perfect for a little bit of sightseeing or as a cover-up for a day by the pool.


I always like to switch up my fragrance for holidays and the scent of figs always makes me think of sunny, lazy days. Jo Malone's Wild Fig & Cassis is my vacay fav!
