It’s The Little Things
When you check-in your luggage at the airport it’s at the mercy of baggage handlers; however, you can butter up these nameless guys and have them treat your suitcase like a carton of eggs by attaching Zazzle’s luggage tag to your stuff. By land, sea or air this comfort pack complete with neck pillow, ear plugs and eye mask will ensure you’re not disturbed when you need to get some much needed shut eye. When you reach your destination, it’s easy to get dehydrated when your trekking through a tropical jungle. Vapur’s Element The Anti-Bottle solves this problems with a 1L, lightweight bottle that rolls up when empty for easy storage; plus, it’s dishwasher and freezer safe.
Packing all your cosmetics for a trip can be a pain in the neck! However, two items that was can’t leave home without is Cake Beauty’s Rush Brush Day Shampoo and Evian Mineral Water Spray. The dry shampoo soaks up hair oils and the brush applicator distributes the powder evenly throughout keeping tresses looking better than Blake Lively’s blond locks. While Evian’s Mineral Water Spray keeps our skin looking so fresh and so clean from the airport to the beach.

Thanks to the miracles of modern-day technology our phones have largely replaced the need to carry around a point-and-shoot camera. However, when we need to add extra oomph to our mobile device Sony’s QX10 does the trick. The powerful 18 megapixel lens slides easily onto your phone, and using Bluetooth technology, connects the two devices where you can capture high quality pictures that would make Hollywood’s paparazzi green with envy. Planning to hit the beach? Don’t go near any body of water without placing your beloved device in this waterproof pouch, guaranteed to protect it from any spills or unexpected dunks into a pool up to three metres.
