Some holiday essentials transcend the destination. Whether you’re heading for the pool, the beach or a glamorous city location, there are a few things that should never come off your packing list.
Not only am I going to let you in on my ultimate ‘getting on a plane/train/automobile to anywhere’ packing tips, but Kettlewell has joined forces with cult body care brand Legology to offer you the chance to win our ultimate packing essentials.
What do I need to take?
We’ve whittled down the list to the top holiday essentials. Read to the end to find out how to win your own holiday essentials bundle!
Wherever you’re going, layering up will help you get maximum use from minimum clothes. Start with your favourite Kettlewell vest, throw on a classic stripe tee and add knitwear for travel – or aggressive air conditioning (long-time readers of this blog will know this is a real pet hate of mine!).
win – our bestselling stripe boat neck tee in glorious true red (the perfect shade for any skin tone)
A lightweight wrap
Call it a scarf, call it shawl, call it an emergency sling/blanket/picnic rug. whatever you call it and wherever you use it for, a holiday isn’t a holiday without a lightweight oversized scarf. Kettlewell’s cashmere gauze stole is perfect for holidays – light enough for travel (and that insane hot country aircon. Have I mentioned I have issues with this?).
win – one of my personal Kettlewell heroes, the cashmere gauze stole.
If you can’t go bold with colour on holiday, when can you?
Contouring leg care
Everyone remembers to pack the SPF, make up and moisturisers but are your legs summer ready? If you’re anything like me, they’ve probably been somewhat neglected during the winter months!). Step forward, Legology. If you’ve never heard of Legology, you’re in the same boat that I was a few months ago, but I am well and truly converted.
Legology’s Exfo-Lite sea salt scrub is the perfect prep for summer legs. After a good scrub and soak, finish them off with the genius Sun-Lite, which adds a healthy glow without the hassle or scary orange hue of fake tan. And if you suffer from heavy legs while flying or in the heat, you definitely need to add Air-Lite to your hand luggage. The amazing scent, innovative massage application and powerful active ingredients will put a spring in your step every time you use it.
win – your very own set of Exfo-Lite, Air-Lite and Sun-Lite
The entertainment package
Surely this has to come in the top five on any holiday packing guide? Good books and good music are essential for any holiday destination.
When it comes to literature, whether your preference is for a love story, an adventure or a hard hitting biography, Alice Peterson’s A Song For Tomorrow has something for everyone. Inspired by singer Alice Martineau, who followed her dreams in the face of huge challenges, this book is a life affirming read.
Since A Song for Tomorrow was inspired by Alice Martineau, we’ve also got two copies of her album Daydreams to give away – the addition your holiday playlist has been waiting for just as much as you’ve been waiting for the perfect Breton stripe top!
win – two signed copies of Alice Peterson’s A Song for Tomorrow (one for you, one for a friend) and two copies of Alice Martineau’s CD Daydreams
