What I Packed For My Birthday Staycation.

It was my birthday on Friday and my sister accidently let slip that we would be spending it in Cardiff. It was exactly what I need and sometimes, you just cant beat a good old staycation can you?

I ended up taking quite a bit with me because I really wanted to focus on myself and just generally make the most of the time away.

Here’s a list of the bits and bobs that joined me on my little birthday getaway.

The Essentials

  • Clothes, underwear and all of that jazz
  • Everyday make-up/toiletry bits
  • Make-up brushes –  So Eco
  • Trainers – Superga
  • Faux fur mules – Ego
  • Jacket (you never know) – North Face


Other Bits

  • Journal – Peach print, Ohh Deer x Urban Outfitters
  • Magazine – Oh Comely
  • A canvas bag – Zara
  • Pen
  • Facial wipes – Yes To cotton
  • Dry Shampoo – Beach Matte, Aussie
  • Aromatherapy roller ball – Deep Sleep, Stress Less, This Works
