Before Barcelona | Packing

Today, I will be packing a few more bits and bobs into my suitcase so thought I'd share them with you. I left out the essentials such as toothbrush, hair dryer, hair straighteners, and clothing because I would be here all day if I were to photograph everything that I'm taking! 

French Connection Body Wash and Body Butter | TRESemme Shampoo and Conditioner | batiste dry shampoo
My boyfriend said we could buy these when we are there but I don't want to have to worry about these things when I am on holiday, so I went out to boots and bought everything! Even the dry shampoo to keep me going in my 'in-between washes' days. The French Connection products were a part of one of my Christmas gifts, so why not make the most of them and save some cash in the process.

Barry M nail polishes
Currently doing my nails as I type (dangerous, I know). I have not decided if I will be taking these with me for touch ups, I'm leaning more towards leaving them here because if I touch them up whilst I'm there, they might smudge and then I'd need my nail polish remover... and so on and so on. So I will probably leave these at home, thought I'd include this in the post since I bought them with the holiday in mind.

antihistamine tablet | paracetamol tablet
I seem to have developed a sensitive body in the last couple of years, I feel like I react to everything! Especially in warmer and new environments, my body cannot handle it, so I will be taking one antihistamine tablet a day to keep the rashes away. Paracetamol tablets are just a precaution, just in case I get any sort of aches.

bank charger
Bank charger to keep my phone going for the flight and busy days. Just need to remember to bring the charger for this.

contact lenses | eye drops | glasses

I will also be bringing my camera + charger, and phone + charger. That is sort of a given for any modern holiday anyway...

If I am 100% honest, I haven't been that excited about this trip but now that I've packed up most of my stuff, and I've done a little research on the place, I can feel myself getting excited! I won't be taking my Macbook with me this time, which also means that I can't blog whilst I'm there but don't worry as I have a few posts scheduled!

You can see what I'm getting up to in Barcelona on instagram as I will hopefully be uploading lots of photos! (If I can find the wi-fi of course...)

Until next time,


  1. Barcelona is BEAUTIFUL! I was born in Madrid, but Barcelona is just as great...just a bit different. You will have so much fun!!

    1. It's a beautiful city for definite! So much to see, I'm officially a fan of Gaudi :) x

  2. You're so lucky! I haven't been abroad in 4 years and Barcelona is definitely on my list of places to go.. I really enjoyed reading this post, it's always good to know what other people pack with them on holiday I think, especially since I'm so bad at it! (It turns out you don't actually need to take the whole contents of your bedroom with you) I love your blog and your posts are always so fun to read/look at, great pictures too! :-)


    1. Aww this comment made my day, thank you! I haven't travelled much in the past but I am trying to start, so much to see, so little time. Trust me, I'm no expert when it comes to packing, even this trip... I packed for sunny summery weather (clothes wise) and it's not quite that hot here yet, so I had to buy a jumper! Hahaa times like this I wish I did pack my whole bedroom :p thanks again for stopping by, really appreciate it! Xx
