Holiday Essentials Guide

It just 3 weeks today till I go on holidays, 10 days of pure bliss and respite. Being a parent is hard work and being a parent to 3 children with autism presents its own unique challenges. So, we really relish our time away. I have been collecting up holiday essential items for our upcoming break and have compiled this guide for all our holiday essentials.
If you are heading to the sun you want to be smelling and feeling fresh and Dove is great for both. They have just announced a brand new formulation to its spray and roll-on antiperspirant collection which will provide more softness and superior care than the previous formulation. The pear and aloe is currently my favourite out of the collection.
Eucerin is a brand new to me so I am excited to give these lotions a try when we hit the beach. They help protect your skin from sun induced skin damage and have a great non-sticky formula. I love that they instantly absorb into your skin and they are water resistant. I love that there is a separate formula for your face as I always find the regular lotion too much for my face.
The team over at theye sent me a lovely bundle of items that are great for travelling. The compact beach and sports towel is made from highly absorbent microfibre and comes in its own pouch. I love microfibre as it dries off so quickly in the sun. We are travelling to mainland Spain so mosquito repellent is a must. These mosquito bands are the ideal solution to covering yourself in lotion. You wear it like a watch and it lasts for up to 2 weeks. The fab multi-pack of micro sprays are ideal for popping in your hand luggage, the triple, packs comes with sun lotion, mosquito repellent and a hand sanitizer.
These items from Phil Smith are also great if you are hand luggage only as they are all under 100ml, so safely allowed on board. No matter what your hair needs I have you covered here, the curly lock is great for popping on your hair after a day on the beach and allowing your hair to dry naturally curly. If you're looking for volume then treat your hair to the big it up mousse. The last 2 items really give your hair a treat from being dried out by the sun, the argan oil transforms your hair and makes it feel really soft and silky.
UltraDex have you covered oral hygiene on your travels, the low abrasion toothpaste is only 75ml and doesn't mask bad smells in your mouth, it neutralises them and stops the build up of bacteria. The mouth rinse is perfect for on the plane, if your going long haul you just want to freshen up and you can with this 100ml bottle, you can rinse on the go and keep your mouth fresh. Lastly for freshness on the go you can use the fresh breath spray
Aldi is well known for their fab special buys and currently, you can get some fab holiday/summer clothing and footwear items in store. I'm loving the black ladies comfort sandal, they are so stretchy, ideal for the hot weather. They have a really good grip on the sole too. My Mum always tells me to protect my head so this hat is the perfect solution, they have a whole host of designs to choose from. I love the design on this hat, I think the hubby may nick it off me though! I love a good pair of flip-flop and ones with a bit of sparkle are right up my street. These gold ones are super comfy and there are a few designs available instore. As with all special buys hurry whole stocks last.
I was really excited when JDWilliams got in touch and offered to send me a few items to review and it was perfect timing to fit with this post and my holiday. It was a tough choice as the range is so vast and they do a lovely selection of summer maxi dresses. I managed to narrow down my choice to the stunning Joe Browns maxi dress, I love how soft and stretchy it is, perfect for the larger lady like myself. I love the wider shoulder straps and gather middle it makes it flow well. It's made from jersey material so it's really breathable and comfy and will be perfect for the evenings in Spain.
How stunning are the jewelled Clarks sandals, they will easily transition from daytimes by the beach to night times dressing up. They are really comfortable and fasten on the side with velcro, they also have a really great tread on the sole. I have worn them around the house and they are super comfy, they will add just the right amount of sparkle to my outfit, the sun is going to catch the diamonds beautifully.

You can't go wrong in the style stakes wth a capsule denim skirt and this one os super lightweight. It's not heavy denim, which is great for the sun in Spain. It has a comfortable drawstring waist, 2 large pockets and a nice frayed hem. It's really comfy and it's a nice just above the knee length.
Increasing the beneficial bacteria in your gut can help maintain a healthy digestive system, going abroad it's even more important to keep your tummy healthy. These Bio-Kult Advanced multi-strain tablets are the perfect option, there are 60 capsules in the box so perfect for taking in your case.
I'm a huge Baylis & Harding fan and have used loads of their products in the past. I was super excited to discover their new hair care range. These fantastic hair care duo leaves your hair feeling  and smelling gourgeous. The jasmine and apple blossom hand gel is ideal for your holiday bag. It's only 50ml so it can even go in your flight bag. Subtle notes of jasmine and apple blossom make it the perfect hoiday scent. Its a gel and not a lotion, so it goes on really nicely and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy.
Are you going away this year? What is on your holiday essentials list?
