Submitted by on Thursday, 17 June 2010 | No Comment

Holiday season is upon us! Finally we can squeeze our most important possessions (maxi dress, iPhone, straighteners) etc into the biggest bag we can find and try to track down some sun to abuse for a week or so.

Luckily for us style now plays a  major part in travel so it’s a great excuse to invest in a few important items to make our holiday that little bit extra stylish.

1. The passport cover

You’ll always rememeber to bring it now you put it something new and gorgeous, and what better than this one from Radley for £28 from John Lewis. Radley always has lovely designs and this beach ball one is perfect for your holidays. You’ll always be able to spot this turquoise cover in your bag so no endless rummaging for you.

2. Vintage Travel Dryer

Upgrade your hairdryer with this gorgeous one from amazon. The cute floral design is timeless and really important in style right now. You have two speeds to choose from with enough oomph to actually dry your hair rather feeling like a breeze like many other travel hair dyers. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t look great while doing your hair.

3.  Tiny Star Travel Pillow & Eye Mask

From Cath Kidston as part of their new summer collection this little set it brilliant. For £16 you get an inflatable neck pillow to make your plane/car/boat journey that little bit more relaxing. And even though we may not exactly look like a goddess while we sleep, at least this eye mask will help us stay just a little bit more glam whilst dreaming away.

4. The Travelogue

While not everywhere we go has wi-fi (an awful thought, I know), we can always do some physical writing to help update your blog when you get home. This one is £6.95 from Dotcomgiftshop and comes in a pretty travel design with script writing and stamps gets all ties up in a ribbon. There’s nothing more vintage than putting pen to actual paper on your jolly holidays for a great memory to keep forever.

5. Hawaiian Tropic Aloha Kiss Moisturising Lip Gloss

We all know your skin needs protecting from your skin but your lips are extremely delicate too. With SPF 20 you will manage to keep your soft lips this summer and with a yummy taste of Island Berry with a gorgeous red tint that will get your noticed on the beach! Buy direct from Hawaiian Tropic for £4.09.

6. Engraved Diamante Luggage Label

You may not be in first class but no one will need to know with this stunning luggage label you’ll look like a first class pro. This is a great touch to your travels bringing in glitz and glamour to even the simplest part of your holiday, your luggage. It’s covered in diamante crystals one side leaving the other clear for the engraving of your choice up to 50 characters. Buy it for £19.95 from Getting Personal.

7.  Croc Embossed Travel Wallet

We all need to treat ourselves sometimes, and this Anya Hindmarch travel wallet is just the ticket. Getting your travel documents in one place is vital during the stressful trip to the airport and there is no more stylish way than this one. With separate compartments for currency, tickets, passport and cards you’ll always know where all your important items are. Made from pure leather snap it up from Harrods for £255.
