It's Holiday Time

Whether you’re driving to Noosa, cruising the Pacific Islands or flying to LA, make sure you are well equipped for both the travel and the destination. Our top 3 tips for that getaway, no matter how big or small, are as follows – and these are recommended from experience.
1. Be Comfortable
This one applies to every facet of your trip. EnsureÂ your outfit for theÂ car, train, boat or plane is one that you are happy to be seated in for a reasonable amount of time. Don’t sacrifice style with chic and comfortable shorts from Australian favourites such as Country Road. Keep a reasonably sized bag in reach for mid flight lip balm and rosewater spray applications. For those getting on the Airbus 818, carry on luggage is of the utmost importance, no matter how long the flight. I always take a pair of Birkenstocks for long flights, to slip on and off with ease whilst high altitude takes its toll on swollen toes. With the rise of the sports luxe and normcore trends it is very possible to be comfortable and stylish so there is no excuse for pyjamas.
2. It’s Better To Overpack Than Under-pack
Everyone seems to hate paying the excess luggage fee, but sometimes its worth it to know that you won’t be left without clean knickers or the regret of not packing that perfect pair of heels to finish a crucialÂ outfit. So with that said, my second tip is to overpack and not under-pack. This one is definitely relevant to people travelling to somewhere that doesn’t have the necessities. You don’t want to be left stranded without a toothbrush.
3. Be Prepared For Anything
Rain, shine, clouds, snow, cold, wind and heat; all out of your control.Â The best thing you can do is prepare for any and every situation. This springs on from tip no. 2 – preparation is key! Not just in terms of weather, but in terms of first aid and toiletries. Paw-Paw ointment is must, as is Aseop hand sanitiser, but your number one is definitely Nars Compact Touch Up stick because sometimes after a long journey, we can look a little worse for wear.Â But let’s be honest, if you do forget the necessities – shopping on holidays is the best part.
