The Flight Bag

Now, we may only be embarking on a 4-5 hour flight tomorrow afternoon (to Tenerife, I can't wait!) so even though it's not a long haul, I'm a stress head when it comes to packing so still need all of my essentials on hand. Because our flight times are a little awkward, resulting in us not getting an evening meal until late, if at all, and because all I'm concerned about is when I'm going to next eat I have to have snacks ready and waiting. I'm trying to keep it healthy with this weeks Graze box offerings which I was very pleased with; chocolate pudding, cookies and cream, apple and cinnamon flapjack and sweet chilli with soy bites, they all sound delish! I have some dried fruit too and the compulsory sucky sweets, I'm not going to lie and say that some chocolate won't sneak it's way in to my bag at the airport. I'm planning on adding more magazines with the likes of Company etc but for now, Now magazine was on offer in Asda. I'm so looking forward to having some time to read my book and I have a notebook and pen handy for when hangman/noughts and crosses/list making is the only option. 

My Victoria's Secret make up bag comes everywhere with me and acts as my mini survival kit, it houses some cute tissues, Hand Food hand cream, Vaseline rosy lips, a mini brush, Primark hand sanitiser, plasters, paracetamol, a compact mirror, a bobble, some bobby pins and a nail file. In terms of other necessities I will be taking a mini deodorant, inhalers, eye drops, headphones, my phone and my purse which I've decided to swap for an older, smaller one to save space. Finally, my camera will be added to my bag, which is a new buy from the Mango sale in House of Fraser if you're wondering! 

Now bring on duty free, what are your in flight essentials?

  1. Ah, that bag is so gorgeous! I'm like you and always thinking about when I'll next eat, so snacks are essential! I love Graze boxes - that selection looks amazing, sweet chilli with soy bites, mmmm! I think my handbag essentials for flying are magazines, a book, my phone, hand sanitiser, baby wipes, chewing gum, face powder, a compact mirror and a bottle of water (and chocolate, of course!).

  7. I love your phone case! I've got a three hour train journey tomorrow (which isn't quite as exciting haha) so I'm making sure my bag is packed with trashy magazines and lots of sweets! Hope you have a wonderful holiday :) x
