Packing For New York

Packing For New York

With only 2 nights to go I have decided that its probably best to start packing for my trip to New York! It’s December so of course this is not bikini weather we’re talking about! I will have to make sure i’v got my gloves and hat with me at all times. Thankfully I just bought this amazing coat from Zara and I’m completely in love with it! The faux fur collar should keep me super warm.


I’m a window seat kind of gal! I always like to have a magazine, my phone and some extra bits packed in my handbag when flying so that I can get to everything easily and don’t have to disturb the person sitting next to me.
It’s going to be a long flight so Iv downloaded a load of movies and some of my fav programmes to catch up on whilst I’v got some free time. It can be a bit claustrophobic on a plane so I’v also popped in my Temple Spa mist duo which will really help me to relax and unwind for the journey.
I was given one of the new Alcatel Onetouch watches last week so I’m taking that in my bag so that I can have a good old fiddle with it and see exactly what it does, I haven’t had the chance yet!
My make up and some Clinique eye cream are in there too so that I can freshen up before landing as it’s going to be a full on trip from the word go!




I have to make sure that I have my home comforts with me when I travel, so for me it’s a case of taking the kitchen sink! I’v packed my full Clinique night and morning routine along with my new Cloud Nine hair straighteners which come with a great heat protector case and lid, it’s super handy. I’v got my Mink Pink nightie and jumper of the moment also, the roll neck!
Obviously I need more than 1 handbag so i’v packed a couple for a bit of variety.
Dinners are a must in New York so i’v thrown in a cute pair of Dune heels and a beautiful sequinned jumper by Prey of London. Obvs got my selfie stick in there too! LOL
