Packing post... by request


So, my lovely friend Loola has made a request: "I would love to see an itemised and picture supported list of everything packed on your blog ;)", to which I replied, "challenge accepted".

Unfortunately my packing is not very interesting or glamorous but here goes.

I am going to Bali on Friday for 10 days and I am determined to be minimalist, as inspired by Sarah Wilson in this post: what I pack to travel... 15kg and I'm outta here. (Sarah has gone to Europe for two months and her suitcase is less than 15kg. Respect.) Of course, I am not perfect to say the least (yes, three pairs of tan wedges... but they are all so different!, etc etc.)


Three day dresses. A coral jersey A-line shift from Review, lilac print by Antipodium, and pale blue polka dot A-line, also from Review.
Evening dress, by Leona Edmiston. I know this just looks like a sea of garishly pink fabric, but it's really lovely on! Plus it is jersey so perfect for travelling.
These were late additions, hence the mis-mash photo. "Goddess" one-piece, coral sarong, black maxi dress, cream soft cowboy-style hat & taupe thongs, all by Seafolly.
PJs. 2 pairs of Peter Alexander pants & 2 black singlet tops.


Bags: Tan leather mini satchel from Italy & bronze sequin Mimco clutch.

Turquoise necklace, gold locket (etched with the lyrics of Forever Young... a beautiful Christmas present from my friend Courtney) and Kookai beaded headband.

Django & Juliet wedges and Bottega wedges.


Teeth, hair & body care: GoSmile toothpaste, toothbrush, flossing thingys & whitening refresher ampoules; L'Occitane shampoo, conditioner, bath bomb, soap & loofah; Bumble & bumble Quenching Complex.
Makeup: mini By Terry Rose de Rose Liquid Blush in Coral Rose, mini Or de Rose foundation in #1 Romantic Blond, Soleil Terrybly in #2 Exotic Bronze & Terrybly Kohl Eyeliners in Black Print & Brown Stellar; Chanel Brow Set in Brunette; Bobbi Brown palette; Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler; Nars sharpener. (NB this is not all the makeup... there is more in my handbag - below!)
Skincare: Wei eye pads, Bioderma Crealine H2O, mini Chantecaille Rice & Geranium Cleanser, Flower Harmonising Cream & Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask; mini SK-II Facial Treatment Essence; mini N.V. Perricone Cold Plasma x2; Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Cream; Mitchum anti-perspirant; Mecca To Save Face SPF30+ x2; Kai Body Glow; Eve Lom muslin cloth

And the things that weren't pictured: my laptop, my camera, ghd and various chargers.

Carry on luggage: Rachel Ruddick leather satchel, purse by Prada, Cutler & Gross sunglasses, Sass & Bide specs, Mason Pearson hairbrush, Game Change, mints, tissues. Cosmetics: Mecca hand cream, sunscreen, lip balm with SPF & mirror; Nars Lip Laquer in Baby Doll,  palette with Orgasm blush, Laguna bronzer & Albatross highlighter, & yachiyo kabuki brush; Chanel lipstick in Camellia; By Terry concealer; Philosophy The Supernatural Airbrushed Mineral Makeup.

So there you go! Now I am off to keep myself busy so I am not tempted to throw in more things... just in case!
