holiday packing series: hand luggage

Hi Guys, 
As most of you know, I am off to Miami in a couple of days and I will be doing a lot of travelling. I will be doing a holiday series and to start it off I will be doing my holiday packing.The first article in the series is my essentials for my Hand Luggage

Being a blogger and all, an obvious object is a notebook. I can keep any blog ideas for my blogging series and keep a daily journal. It's also a way to keep little memories and keep checklists to make sure i dont forget anything whilst travelling. This notebook is one of my favourites as the pattern is so beautiful and it is hardback meaning it won't get damaged easily. My brother bought this for me during his visit to Thailand a few years back and I have loved it ever since.

I always carry at least two books with me in my hand luggage and an extra book in my actual suitcase. I have read both of these times but I haven't had the time to go to waterstones to grab a couple of new books. I'm currently looking at reading 'The Virgin Suicides' and 'The Catcher In The Rye' which I am planning on buying for my trip. 

Being the child I am, my DS is a must have for me. It's always great to have something to play when bored in the car or on a plane. Video games are a great way to kill time because they are just fun. My favourite games to play are Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, Mario Bros and Pokemon however I always carry a couple of extra games just incase. 

Phone case: Topshop

My phone and iPod go everywhere with me. I have recently been on a big music shop to make sure I have the perfect holiday playlist. I've recently been catching up on Game of Thrones recently and with the premier coming up I downloaded a few episodes just in case the on flight TV isn't too great. Both my phone and iPod are also great just to take quick photographs that I can post on instagram whilst on the go. Big headphones are also a must. These sony headphones are amazing because they cancel all sound meaning there will be no interruptions whilst watching a film or listening to music. I will also be carrying my smaller apple headphones as a backup pair. 

Magazines are always a must. They are a great way to find out about the things you care about and are just a quick bordem cure. Surfer, Thrasher and NME are always my first choices. Thrasher and Surfer have amazing visuals and the stories are always interesting. NME is also a big favourite as I am a huge music fan. I usually have total film or empire as well as I am a huge film addict however I haven't been able to get out and but any new magazines recently. 

Whenever me and my mum are travelling, playing cards are a essential. We love having a competitive game of Go Fish or Blackjack. Considering we will be going on a 9 hour flight, we are going to need a lot of things to do and this is one of mine and my mum's favourite things to do. I am also hoping to buy Cards After Humanity as well. 

Being a photography student and all, I will be carrying my two film cameras. The top Camera is a Cosina SLR film camera. This camera takes beautiful pictures however there is a slight problem with the catchment of the back. I am really worried of spoiling the film but with extra care I should be alright. The second camera is a Diana F+ Lomo camera. This is one of my absolute favourites as the lomo effect just makes the photographs a bit more interesting. We will be doing snorkelling whilst on our travels and we're hoping to ghet an underwater camera while we're out there. I will also be taking my Nikon DSLR camera, however I was taking all of my pictures on it therefore I was unable to feature it. Any pictures I take will be featured here within the next couple of weeks or on Instagram daily. 

Of course I will be carrying some form of sweets in my hand luggage. Bounty obviously isn't my first choice however we didn't have any sweets at home. I usually buy my sweets there and it usually consists of something chocolatey and something that will prevent my ears popping. 

Film is an obvious choice as I will be taking my film cameras. I will be taking black and white film as well as colour to get a variation of photographs.

Sunglasses are obviously something everyone must carry. Depending on whether it is hot or not, the sun will always be out. The sunglasses I shall be taking are these beautiful cat eye sunglasses that were featured in my haul. 

Topshop / Beguled

My favourite lipstick only ever comes out of my bag when being used. It's always good to have a lipstick with you as a quick top up after a flight. 

Last on my list is some form of money and my costa card. I always carry change around in different currency's when at an airport just incase and my costa card always comes in handy for a pre flight coffee. 

I hope you enjoyed and I shall see you tomorrow,
Beth x
