Travel Essentials for a Weekend Getaway

Happy Monday kids!

As I keep mentioning, sorry not sorry, Josh and I have a weekend away at Centre Parcs coming up in September, which I AM SO EXCITED FOR. I don’t think Josh understands how excited I actually am. Poor lad.

I feel like I have everything packing wise planned and sorted. Even though we don’t go for another few months. MONTHS. Well…it’s less than fifteen weeks now, eek!

This post is all about what you actually need for a weekend getaway…so unpack your house, you don’t need it!


Clothing…are six outfits enough?

Six outfits are too much. Sorry, but you’ll have to put that jumpsuit back my dear. I suggest taking three to four outfits suitable for all weather situations. Take a pocket poncho if the weather takes a turn for the worst.

Now, shoes can be a bit tricky if the weather is being typically British, a pair of trainers will do it but if the weather is brighter than usual – a pair of sandals or ankle boots will do. Take a choice of two pairs of pyjamas too, again you never know what the weather can do!



I love shopping for mini toiletries, proper gets me excited for going on holiday – even if it just for a weekend.

Important toiletries to take:

Shampoo & conditioner

Body wash


Body spray



Hair ties & bobby pins

Toothbrush & toothpaste


Useful Belongings

Here’s a short list of other items which might be handy while exploring!




Disposable camera

Water bottle

Travel mug

Snacks…of course!


I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest!


See you on Wednesday!

Lots of love

    I’m definitely an overpacker! I can’t help but pack something for every possible scenario, and I have to give myself enough choices in case I decide an outfit looks awful on me that day. I’ve got a 5 day trip to Amsterdam coming up in October and I just know my suitcase is going to be full!
    I’ll have to read this post again in October and try and cut down!
