What's In My Bag: London + Norway

Sunday, August 27, 2017
I was lucky enough to visit London for my birthday this month (you can check out my London photo diary post so you want to see what we did in the beautiful city of London) and I'm setting off for Norway later this week too! I haven't had to do so much packaging in the space of a couple of weeks and that makes me a little nervous as I always overpack and worry that I haven't taken everything I need.

Here's a sneak peek into my bag and what I took with me to for a weekend in London (I'll have a separate post about my makeup/skincare for Norway), including a few necessities, beauty essentials and snacks.

Let's start with the basics, I have my gorgeous maroon Kate Spade purse and my equally gorgeous rose gold iPhone 7. When I went to London, I didn't take my massive Canon 750D and lenses, I just took my iPhone 7 and I'm surprised at how well the photos turned out although I will be taking my DSLR to Norway. I also have my trusty Rayban Erika Sunglasses which came in so handy in London as the weather was gorgeous.
For the snacks, I took a packet of the very moreish *Mighty Fine Honeycomb Dips (£3, 90g) in the salted caramel flavour to London with me and it was delicious but for Norway, I'll be taking the milk chocolate option as I adore milk chocolate. We have a long train journey to Southampton and then back again so they will keep me going and they don't make any mess on the train. I also have the dark chocolate flavour that I might take too as I know everyone will want to try these and they're such an incredible moreish snack, you can't just have once piece, you have to eat the whole packet! Highly recommend!
I do tend to take some beauty items in my bag but most of it will be in my main luggage; however I'm one of those people who has to have 'emergency' beauty items in every bag just in case...I get it from my mum as she is exactly the same. I was kindly sent a massive box filled with essentials and travel necessities from Chemist.co.uk and I'll be taking some of the items to Norway including the mini dry shampoo, wipes, multivitamins, razors, plasters and other essentials which you'll see in an upcoming post. I'll also be taking The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Hand Cream, Merci Handy Face Mist and mini perfume samples, as emergency items.

What essentials do you keep in your bag? What are your travel essentials? 


  1. I store all of my travel sized products for holidays! Enjoy Norway! xx


  2. I've tried the honeycomb bars but has no idea they did sharing bars too!

  3. Ooo it all looks so nice! My bag always just has rubbish in it I'm such a nightmare for keeping my bag so unorganised!

  5. I usually have some kind of aromatherapy roll-on in my handbag! x

  6. Have a great time in Norway! Those honeycomb dips looks delish!

  7. I seem to keep everything and the kitchen sink in my bag! I love those sunglasses :)
