      Thanks, Debra! πŸ™‚

  2. Great tips!

    I’ve been lucky to travel for work over the past couple of years and some of my trips have been on long haul flights (one to milan too actually) and i totally agree with your essentials.
    Definitely not a time to wear make up. You need all the hydration you can get on a long flight like that πŸ˜‰

    I also like to carry a facial mist to spray during the flight, it just makes me feel a little more refreshed (if thats possible)
    And it may not be very glamorous but I also always take nasal spray/oils to avoid getting a blood nose.

    Great post by the way!

      Thanks, Luciana! Oh good point re the facial mist — I don’t normally carry one, but had a freebie on hand this time and definitely enjoyed the odd spritz over the duration of the trip! Ooh, I hate getting a dry nose but never knew what to do about it. Mystery solved! Thanks heaps for the comment x

    Awesome tips! I’ve tried so many different combinations of items but always find I’m missing something – will save this list for the next time I travel as it seems to cover all the bases!

      Glad it was helpful, Jess! It certainly took me years of trial and error to finally get it right! πŸ˜‰

    These are great common sense tips Kat. Plus I’ve never thought of the BB cream idea so thanks for that one! I also always have a sleeping mask and earplugs. As a person with chronic pain I need a neck pillow and an extra small square pillow as the plane ones are so crap and I often need one at my back. I too second the water facial spray as I often get warm, plus they are supposed to work for hydration (dunno if they really do!). Also I take a water bottle (have to take it empty through customs & screening obviously) to keep filling up as those tiny little cups of water are simply not enough. I can’t think of anything else! Of course travelling with kids means a whole new list … 😳

      Thanks, Kellie! Oops – totally forgot to mention my amazing sleep mask. Just added it to the post πŸ˜‰ And yes – those plane pillows are useless. Last year we only brought one neck pillow meaning we had to share it and my neck was sore for weeks!

      Good point with the water bottle – I considered it but my bag would have burst with any additional items πŸ˜‚ (Can only imagine how much you have to bring having child in tow!!) x

    I love this post! Great tips ☺

    I’m a frequent travel and used to always overpack but, like you said, have managed to narrow everything down. I also take a change of clothes so that I have my comfy, travel clothes (usually yoga pants and the baggies jumper I can find πŸ˜‚) and then my presentable outfit to get changed into at the airport before I pick my bags up!
