Shop my Travel Essentials:

With less than a week to go until I head off on my holidays, I’m in full on planning mode. I’ve already picked up most of the bits I need (bar that last minute dash to boots and Penneys that we all make) so I thought I would feature a little edit of some of the holiday bits that I am still lusting after.

Its an eclectic mix of accessories, fun gadgets, and travel essentials, perfect for a fun getaway with friends. I have featured these Frends headphones on the blog before, and I still have my eyes on them. They are such a pretty travel accessory, perfect for plane journeys and lazy afternoons by the pool. They won’t arrive in time before I fly, but maybe next time, eh?

I love following people’s travel adventures on social media, and I particularly love shots of passports mixed in with other travel bits. This passport cover from ASOS is beyond adorable (such a cute quote!) and this monogrammed luggage tag from GiGi NewYork would be a luxurious but inexpensive little addition to your travel gear.

When it comes to sunglasses, I feel like I have more then I’ll ever need, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting another pair. I’m really into clear frame, mirrored styles right now, and this pair from Le Specs are so perfect! I’m also packing two big sun-hats, and if I could justify a third, this oversized black floppy style from River Island would be it. Pity it wont fit in my case!

I am in the market for a new blogging camera for style diaries and the like, and after seeing so much hype about the Olympus Pen EPL 7, it’s now on my wishlist. Not only is it cute and compact (apparently it fits in your jacket pocket) but the reviews are very good so far. You just might hear more about it on the blog soon, watch this space!

A holiday wishlist would not be complete without a nice beach bag to carry it all in, and this tassel tote bag looks much more expensive than it’s price-tag. I’ve also included some metallic tattoos in the lineup, since they seem to be a holiday write-of-passage, now and I’m tempted to pick up a pack to try them out for myself!

I hope you enjoyed this little edit of travel essentials. I’ll be featuring another post soon showing you guys exactly what I’m packing for my trip, here’s hoping I can fit it all in my suitcase!

Happy Shopping,

    Hi Ciara

    When I plan for a holiday tour I never forget to take featured headphone, because I love music. I enjoy the moment of travelling listening music. LoL 🙂 My choices are really match with you on taking travelling tour stuff. I wear the glass and don’t forget to have a fashionable and trendy bag.

    There are many things here which are essential for travel and I was unaware about it but going through your post, I have learned many things. Thanks for sharing such awesome post. 🙂

    Have a good day.
