Exploring Malta | VLOG

As some of you may know if you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram (if you don’t I have linked those below), I went to Malta last week. I actually headed out there for a friend’s wedding and I thought it would be super fun to take you along with me to a full 3 day Indian wedding extravaganza. However, vlogging at the wedding was an epic fail! There were so many functions and I was catching up with friends I hadn’t seen for years so it didn’t appropriate to vlog a lot of the time, and I am not going to lie I did forget my camera quite a few times!

I did however stay on for 3 days after the wedding to check out Malta with my mom and we had a bit of a girly holiday, exploring the island and just chatting and chilling quite a lot. I thought it would be really nice to share this with you and show you a little sneak peak of Malta, which has some stunning views and the capital city is almost like out of a fairytale. We stayed in a small boutique hotel just by the city centre and it was super quaint. So I hope you enjoy this video and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

Top Ten Travel Essentials

Packing is something I have always hated! I know this doesn’t sound like a very positive start to a post, but I really do! Sometimes I even feel I wouldn’t go away on holiday just so that I didn’t have to pack. I have always found packing stressful, tedious and very draining as it involves a lot of thinking believe it or not: And despite investing all this time and effort on it, I always feel like when I reach my destination I have left something behind.

Given I am going away to Dubai yet again, this time for a friends wedding –  and its all fresh in my mind I thought I would share with you my top ten essentials which I must always have with me when I am travelling, no matter where I go.

Beauty and makeup are for me the most two essential categories of things to take when I am going away. When I am travelling I often find myself having nightmares a couple of nights before about me reaching my destination and having forgotten to pack my makeup bag (god forbid that ever happens! I would probably just fly back home lol). But it is also the stuff which I can’t pack till the very end because I need most things on a daily basis, so I always fear I will forget something. So my absolute must haves for makeup have to be my Dior BB cream which can double up as a primer and a foundation, concealer (I cannot live without my Cle de Peau concealer, nothing give me the coverage of this baby), my Anastasia Contour Kit and my beauty blender. I feel like anything else I forget I can probably just buy wherever I land but I am so specific about the brand of these products that I can’t bear the though of not having them with me (I sometimes wonder what I did before I had them in my life!)

For skincare something I am always trying not to forget is a cleanser. I stopped using soap based cleansers a while ago because they tend to break me out and since then I have had a long and loving relationship with my Toleriane cream cleanser from La Roche Posay. This is perfect for removing all makeup, including the eyes and its not greasy but at the same time it doesn’t strip your skin.

Another essential has to be moisturisers, and although I tend to carry a night oil for my evening routine, an SPF for the day time and also some sort of light moisturiser, if push comes to shove I could really do with just one. My choice at the moment would be the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. It has an amazing texture, and leaves your skin feeling plum, hydrated and luminous without making it greasy, its great base for makeup and it even has a little SPF, so it covers all the bases!

Finally some tweezers are an absolute must have to keep my hairy face under control, right now I am loving Superdrug’s own brand, they are amazing at plucking even the tiniest of hairs out.  A few more essentials are my phone charger, some headphones (trust me a plane ride without these seems endless!) and a toothbrush which believe it or not is something I always forget to pack!

I hope this was useful and that I now don’t actually forget to pack any of these  for my trip. Stay tuned to my social media to see what I get upto while I am away!
