what's in my bag?: a wash bag edition

Friday, 9 November 2012

I'm doing a little travelling this week and heading a wee bit down South to visit my friend in Kirkcaldy and do some exploring in the glorious capital of Edinburgh. I always find it hard to fit all my skincare essentials in one bag so I thought I would do an overview of the type of things I bring with me for a small weekend away.

I don't really know where I got the travel bag from. I think my Grandma left it here when she came to visit a long time ago and I've just kind of adopted it as my own. It's a really good size and has a hanging loop on it. It may not look pretty but it does the job well!

  • Origins Checks and Balances Facewash
  • Origins Make a Difference Skin Tonic
  • Origins Lightweight Moisturiser
  • Dove Maximum Protection Deodorant 
  • The Body Shop Coconut Oil Hairshine
  • Toothbrush and Toothpaste
  • Charles Worthington Heat Defence Spray
  • Small Travel Bottles of Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel
  • Facewipes
  • Perfume
  • A few cotton pads 
Ta da! And they all fit neatly in the bag without so much having to squeeze the bag shut! I wish they did travel versions of everything as I do a lot of travelling but I guess this will have to do for now.

What are your travel essentials in your wash bag?




  1. I want to try The Body Shop Coconut hair shine - my hair is looking so dull & needs a little TLC

    1. It's really nice! Smells so coconutty and gives a great shine to your hair and at only £5!


  2. Wow Vanessa you brought much less than I would. I'm going to be going away for a weekend next month and I get the feeling I'm gna over pack lmao. Hope you have a good time when you go! :D xx

    1. Haha! My friend who I was staying with usually has most of the other stuff I would bring. Otherwise I would have brought A LOT more :D There's no such thing as over-packing, it's called being prepared :)
