In-flight essentials

Sorry for the bad quality
I'm currenly in LA, will be back in three weeks. I'll reply to all comments, emails and messages as soon as I'm back :)

Hi everyone! So I thought I'd share with you some of my essentials for a long flight. As you guys know I'm off to LA and the journey will take around 21 hours. These are some things that I must have with me for such a long flight.

1) Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Mouthwash
This is kinda obvious isn't it. Needa keep those pearly whites clean. Haha. I'm taking minis in my hand luggage to clean my teeth.

2) Comb/Hair ties/Bobby pins
My hair can get really messy and tangly after a nap so i need a comb to straighten out all those knots in my hair. I also bring along hair ties or bobby pins if I want to keep my hair away from my face when I'm eating (or if i'm getting really annoyed with it) and maybe if I want to tie it up so it isn't too messy.

3) Handcream/Lotion
The recycled air in the plane can really dry out your skin especially after being in it for a long time. My hands and elbows especially will become dry and scaly so I bring along some lotion to return some moisture to them. 

4) Facewash
Before touchdown, I like freshen up a bit. So I bring my current facewask in a mini bottle (that I stole from an hotel ages ago) to clean my face. This also really helps me get rid of the zombie complexion and make me look more awake. I then like to take a bit of the lotion and dab it on my face to moisturize. 

5) Face wipes
If you don't really want to wash your face, this is a simple solution. These wipes easily cleanses your face and refreshes them. I like to use them not only before touchdown but during the flight if my face is feeling tired or dry. This is a great pick-me-up. A moisture mist is a good alternative too. 

5) Lipbalm
I cannot go on any flight journey, long or short without this. My lips gets really dry easily especially in the plane so I always need a lipbalm with me at all times to prevent chapped lips. The one I'm currently using is Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lipbalm. Seriously guys, this smells soo yummy. Like pure hot chocolate. 

6) Headphones/iPod
How long can you go without music? I always bring my headphones to plug into my phone for a little Top 40 hits ;) I don't have an iPod but if you do, I think it's better to use that. 


Thank you for all of your lovely comments. I try to reply as soon as I can to all of them. Feel free to leave your blog links, I love checking them out :)
