4 Essentials YOU need in your flight carry on

Hello Everyone! 
Long time, no blog I know, I've really missed keeping to a schedule but unfortunately I have been so busy! Hopefully things will calm down a bit now and I can get back to normal. Today's post is all about what is going in my carry on bag for my holdiday (which I am finally leaving for tomorrow! Woo!). This year my boyfriend and I am flying out for a city break to Prague in the Cheque Republic and I am so excited! It's a place neither of us have been to before and have heard really good things about, so hopefully it will be an amazing trip. I will most definitely posting some pics on here so keep your eyes peeled!

1) Books and magazines 
These are an absolute must for me! One of the most important parts of a holiday are to be able to relax, and the best way for me to do that is by reading. I love Cosmo and Glamour, they're some of my favourite magazines and they're also one of the best prices out there (who knew that cosmo was only £1 now?!?!). Mags are great for when you mindlessly want to flick through and read about fun things like fashion and beauty. I also have to have a book and at the moment I'm reading 'If you're not the one' by Emma Forte which is a really great girly. easy read that you can really get your nose stuck into. I find them so useful in a carry on because you can often have a lot of waiting around when travelling and this just passes the time so well!

2) Important bits and bobs
So obviouusly in my carry on I have to have my iPhone, charger, earphones (you can't go through a flight without music) and my purse. Pretty standard but you definitely can't forget any of these items!

3) Glasses and contact lenses
If you're blind as a bat like me, you'll know that you HAVE to have a backup way to see when travelling. I always carry spare contact lenses in case one falls out or they become uncomfortable, my glasses, in case I get tired and want to sleep  on the plane and a pair of sunglasses because there's nothing better than stepping off a plane into bright sunshine and popping your sunnies on - it really gets you in the holiday mood!

 4) Toiletries
 Obviously you can only take a certain amount of liquids onto an aeroplane so you really only need to bring the essentials in your carry on. I bring a face wash and moisturiser, in case I feel gross after a flight, or before a flight if it's quite a long one. I also HAVE to take my tangle teaser because my hair would look extremely awful by the time I got off the flight if I just left it. It's always good to carry a compact mirror just in case too, both for my contact lenses and make up.

5) Makeup
Again, with make up you only want to be bringing the essentials, and to be honest, who can be bothered with a full face of make up on a flight? I just bring foundation, a small eye shadow and contour palette, eyebrow kit, mascara, eyelinee and a nude liquid lipstick. It's also good to carry your makeup in case your main luggage gets lost or anything like that. 

So there we go! That's what I carry in my bag on a plane! What do you like to take with you?
