Now, when I say hand luggage, we got this holiday as cheap as we could so that means not paying for bags, ie our hand luggage is our only luggage! So this is actually everything I'm taking!
My case is one of those nifty little ones on wheels and it makes me feel a lot cooler than I am! It was £13.49 from Argos which I'm pretty pleased with! But who cares about the boring case...here's what's in it:
I'm taking two pairs of shoes, as well as the ones I'll be wearing to travel in. My leopard print pair are for walking around in during the day and my lace up flatforms are for drinks in the evening (as long as the weather is nice!)
Because we don't really know what the weather will be like I've packed layers and am taking outfits that will work with an extra layer over the top if it's cold! I've also packed a nice top for evenings.
I can't go on a plane without some form of entertainment so I'm taking a book and a magazine for the flight (although I'm really hoping that I'll be able to sleep!) and I've also got an Italian phrasebook, which will hopefully help us slightly while we're there.
It wouldn't be hand luggage without the ugly plastic bag of liquids included! Luckily I didn't need to buy anything new apart from the mini deodorant and mini toothpaste as I already had minis from gift sets and sample sizes of things. I also had free samples of moisturiser, shampoo and foundation already which was very handy! I'm also taking some anti-bac hand wipes because you never know when you might need them!
Going away means I get to use my lovely little Cath Kidston make up bag, which has got all my non-liquid make up products in. I'm also taking a separate little plastic bag with my jewellery and little extras in like cotton pads and a nail file.
I'm taking two bags - one bigger one for the plane, which is from Accessorize and another smaller one for walking around during the day, which is from Primark. Obvious essentials are my passport and some Euros!
I can't wait to show you some photos from the actual trip, but until then, ciao (I actually had to look that up in my phrasebook!
