R&R’s Tips – Packing Light for a Glam City Break

If you’re going away for a few days on a City Break with just hand luggage, here are our top tips for packing light and still looking glamorous!

  • Don’t overpack. Co-ordinating your outfits pre-travel, can save you space in your case as well as time when you get to your destination.  Fill a slimline suitcase with denim shorts, light jeans, and simple white or neutral tops. Topshop & M&S do great ranges at good prices but don’t forget to roll, not fold, to avoid the dreaded creases. A pair of comfortable daytime flip flops and a slightly more glamorous sandal for the evening should take you from day to night with ease.
  • Stackable cosmetic pots are your best friend, Superdrug do a great range if you’re on a budget or alternatively, try Muji. Fill the pots with your usual gels, creams and lotions. Look for products to take away that have more than one use for example, a mini tin of L’Occitane Shea Butter softens everything, hair, face, body and hands.
  • Keep your look fresh. There’s nothing worse than being hot and sweaty in a city, so piling on the make-up is no-no. Cover FX’s Mattifying BB Gel evens out skin and stops it going shiny in the heat. For an evening out, try Clarins After Sun Shimmer Oil on limbs to give them a great glow and accentuate a tan.
