1. Rebecca Minkoff Medium Julian Backpack

For a while, I’d been on the hunt for the perfect backpack. I wanted something I could use everyday AND, since I’m always on the go, something practical enough for travel. It needed to be unique, super duper functional, and something I could use dressed up or dressed down. I came across this backpack while browsing in a department store in Singapore and it was instant attraction!

Main compartment: surprisingly spacious with three interior organisational compartments, great to separate your phone, cables or keys.

Exterior pockets: on either side of the bag with zipper close, easy access to things you might need without opening the entire bag.

Back hidden pocket: with a magnetic button where the bag rests against your back, the perfect to keep your passport nice and safe.

Security latch: the clasp lock which attaches to the D-ring at the bottom of the bag can be hooked to the D-ring at the top of the bag… no one’s getting in your bag!

2. Bang & Olufsen Portable Speaker

I always have music playing, whether its a bedroom jam session, some background tunes while I clean or soothing melodies while I sleep. Whenever I was away from home I used to play my music using my phone speakers.

During a trip to Tokyo, we stayed a the Wired Hotel in Asakusa where each room had a Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 speaker… and we played our music non-stop!

It has up to 24 hours of wireless play time, is small and travel friendly, amazing sound quality and can be hung on the wall! It also pairs with the Apple TV, if you happen to be travelling with it. It lets me bring a little piece of home wherever I go.

3. Emma Hardie Dual Action Cleansing Cloth

I love muslin cloths… but this cloth offers more!

One side is muslin cloth for exfoliation and the other side is microfibre for taking off makeup. Normally I would apply a cleansing balm and take off my makeup with the dampened microfibre side, but if you’re travelling and just run out of cleanser, this cloth does wonders on its own!

5. FOREO ESPADA Blue Light Acne Treatment Pen

Travelling can bring on the worst in my skin. This blue light pen ACTUALLY WORKS and is an amazing travel tool because there is nothing to accidentally spill, like with my other favourite blemish potion, EradiKate. It works best when used on freshly cleansed skin.

6. MILESTO Jewellery Case

Gone are the days of untangling my bracelets and chains from each other after travelling. This little jewellery case has a compartment for everything! This is a Japanese brand and is very hard to find their products elsewhere so I picked this up last time I was in Tokyo.

7. MILESTO Packing Cubes

I’m a tad OCD and like knowing where everything is without having to look. While I don’t use packing cubes to pack all of my luggage, I like to use them for smaller items so they don’t go wandering around the suitcase. I love that MILESTO make these in a beautiful patterns and fabrics.

8. Dr Scholls Compression Socks

The moment I find my seat, I slip off my sandals and on goes my compression socks. I’ve found this, along with my foot hammock, has eliminated any swelling I experience in my feet - and thereby DVTs. I’ve had this pair for years and years, so they’re a bit worn for wear!

9. Foot Hammock

I have short legs.

When I sit on a plane seat, my feet don’t reach the cabin floor and because the entire weight of my legs is resting on my thighs, my feet swell painfully from the restricted circulation during long flights.

Foot hammock

Just buckle around the tray table, adjust the strap to the perfect height and rest your feet on the hammock. This simple little gadget is so effective in relieving the pressure from the thighs and allows blood flow to your toes and all those good places.

I keep both the foot hammock and the compression socks inside this drawstring pouch to bring in my carry on.
