I'm Going to America! - What's In My Suitcase?

I am off to America tomorrow (woohoo!) so I thought I would share a little 'what's in my suitcase' post with you! I am such a loser when it comes to packing and love planning what I am going to take weeks in advance and lay it all out on my bed very prematurely. However, this holiday, I left very to the last minute. I think because it is not my usual summer holiday to a hot destination where all I need to think about is flip flops and bikinis. I found packing for this trip very tricky as I have no idea what the weather will be like and I need a lot of practical clothing.

I am off to New Jersey to visit family before heading to New York for a few days and then I will be doing a little road trip up the East Coast to Boston, Maine and exploring New England. I am hoping the weather will be nice and hot so I am mostly taking summer clothes, with a few pairs of trousers and boots chucked in just in case!


 The thing I am most excited about is being able to wear my new bikinis. I have got 2 new bikinis recently just for my holidays and I can't wait to wear them. I received my Triangl bikini from my boyfriend for my birthday which I was very happy about! I also received this gorgeous tassle bikini from George at Asda which I am in love with! I just hope I have enough time to wear them both! Both bikinis are super flattering as the Triangl one really holds you in and pushes you up in all the right places. And the George one is perfect for my slightly pear-shaped body as all the tassles makes it look like I have boobs and the high cut pants are really flattering on my chunky thighs!


Working in beauty PR, I also have an abundance of beauty products which I now can't live without. Therefore, my toilet bag seems to take up half of my suitcase! I always try as hard as I can to take as few products as possible and condense them down into small bottles for space saving. I think I have done quite well this time, and especially as me and my mum will be sharing a lot of things, I have managed to be quite concise. Here are just a few of my favourite holiday minis. I love buying mini versions of products to take on holiday with me. As well as saving much needed space, they just look so much cuter as well don't they!?


After looking through the clothes I am planning to take, it seems the colour theme I am going for is blue, white and black! This wasn't planned but I suppose works out quite well. Hopefully I can manage to make a few good outfits out of this lot! So there you have it, a little insight into what I am packing. Of course, I have plenty more clothes, toilettries and bits and pieces coming with me but that's the boring stuff! Have you got any holidays coming up?
