Winter Blues? Take a Trip with Our Travel Essentials!

As the weather starts to turn more autumnal and the evenings begin to draw in, the summer can feel very far away. If the thought of winter has you heading back to your duvet, why not consider a winter-sun break? This time of year is a great time to jet off to sunnier climes. Not only will the break refresh you, ready for Christmas, but with schools in session, you won’t have to share the pool with excited children! With most stores now stocked up with autumn/ winter essentials, finding everything you need for a sun-packed holiday can be a challenge, so we have come up with our shortlist of travel essentials, check them out…


Sun protection

An absolute must-have, not only will sun cream help protect your skin from burning but it can also help prevent the signs of sun damage, which can include premature aging! Within your sun-protection kit, be sure to include a sun hat, which will offer added protection.


Travel wallet

Invest in a quality travel wallet that can store your tickets, passport and insurance details. Of course, you need to take exceptionally good care of it but it will help prevent those last minute ‘lost passport’ panics.



With time spent lounging by the pool or on the beach, swimwear will be your go-to daywear. However, many women can feel self-conscious donning a bikini or swimsuit and yet, supportive, structured swimwear can help create a more streamlined silhouette and offer shaping.

Take for example, the Puerto Rico swimsuit from renowned lingerie manufacturer, Prima Donna. With its supportive cups and body shaping technology, it is perfect for women of all shapes and sizes. Available up to a G cup, the straps can be adjusted to create two flattering looks; halter-neck or standard straps. The navy & white striped design is also perfect for a sunny break.


Hard working separates

To minimise your packing aim to pack separates that can be mixed and matched to create a number of different looks. A tailored pair of shorts, for example, can be worn with both t-shirts and a summery blouse, depending on your destination.

A great addition to your packing is a pareo, such as the Anita Coronado Beach design. Available in one size, it can be worn in a number of different ways, making it a great daytime cover up and it is super-light and easy to pack!



Accessories such as earrings, bracelets and a statement necklace are lightweight, take up little room in your case and can elevate even a simple outfit into something dressier for a night on the town.
