Because I'm Happy

- Morning winter walks

- Spending time with my family, this is such a big one for me especially with my job it has really taught me to appreciate every moment your together. 

- Making new friends and meeting new people

- Going out of my comfort zone and trying something new 

- Cooking something by myself and it actually tasting pretty good! 

- Movie nights 

- Late night conversations with my boyfriend

My Travel Essentials

So with my job I have been travelling for the last year non stop so I have got my packing down to a fine art, so today I thought I would share with you the items I couldn't travel without!

Pack of small wipes
These little baby's are a life saver on soooo many occasions, whether you want to freshen up a little on a plane or need something to clean your hand before you eat. They are so small and a little wipe goes a long way. Perfect for popping in your hand bag!

Mints or Chewing Gum
Again something small but that helps so much just pop it into your mouth and for me anyway I feel so much fresher and more alert.

I never leave to go anywhere without packing my camera, its a must have! I love to take my instax camera away too when I have more space as there is nothing more special than having it printed there and then!

Another thing I wouldn't leave the house without! It allows you to completely shut off from the world and get a bit of piece and quite especially on planes!

Now this has so many uses! If your going away to a different climate then vaseline or another lipsalve is a must! The reason I choose vaseline is because it can double as a moisturiser so If I get a few dry patches this works well!

What are your travel essentials?
