My travel wishlist

Here's an array of some of my most coveted - and lusted after - essentials for travelling. Those who follow me on twitter and instagram might have guessed that I'm on holiday at the moment
 in the hot, beautiful country of Sri Lanka. It's a fascinating place and I'm in love with the all of the culture, wildlife and sights. My highlights so far include seeing a monitor lizard, releasing baby turtles, having banana tea and riding on an elephant today (it's scarier than it seems!). 

1. Travel journal, Accessorize - a notebook is a lovely essential to take travelling, whether it is used to take down essential numbers and addresses, or record the days events. This notebook has a beautiful bohemian, tribal pattern and is designed for use as a travel diary or journal.

2. Passport holder, Ban.do - I'm a sucker for anything remotely pink, gold and rose gold and this case is so pretty. Passport cases are definitely more of a treat than an essential for me but once I save up my pennies, my passport can enjoy a makeover.

3. Travel case, Ban.do - Clear plastic cases are essential and very useful for me when travelling as I can see exactly what I'm carrying. This one is a great size and the baby pink design is super cute and chic. The mere fact that it's waterproof aswell would serve very useful at the moment!

4. Out of office cocktail ring, Kate Spade - this ring is so dreamy and I'm basically in love with all of her new summer collection, only my purse isn't! I've also fallen for the Breath of fresh air tiki purse and matching bag. The shimmering blue glass in this ring reminds me of a swimming pool and is so summery with a tropical flower and citrus slice at either end.

5. Luggage tag, Accessorize - I love finding ways of accessorizing my suitcase; I wind washi tape around it and decorate it as much as possible. This pretty rose gold tag will ensure I never loose it on the luggage carousel, plus it's a perfect match for my favourite Ban.do passport holder.

6. Hand Sanitiser, Bath and body works - a hand sanitiser is a good idea to take on public transport and the Bath and body works varieties smell delicious, especially the tropical scents! I love that they are well under the liquids limit for plane travel, so can keep them in my hand luggage and use them before eating my plane meals. I find mine on ebay being from the UK.

7. Rose gold bobby pins, Ban.do - I'm wishing I'd brought these beauties on holiday with me, as monsoon weather is not bang or fringe friendly! It's very humid which means my hair is always finding ways to fall in my face. The rose gold shade is so pretty!

8. Peach sarong, Accessorize - I'm partial to a long skirt or two when I go on holiday but taking this sarong with me ensures that I can cover up when I need to, when visiting a temple or religious site or to keep the bugs away. The pink, white and gold colours look beautiful together, perfect for accentuating a tan and also sheltering from sudden monsoon showers.

I'm adjusting to island life at the moment, which means the internet works a little slower and I'm five hours ahead of UK time, but I love the pace of life over here, the lush greenery, the beaches and the scorching temperatures. Cows and dogs own the roads and bananas and frangipanis grow in our garden. The smell of hot earth, incense and flowers is everywhere. I can't wait to show you my travel diaries! Are you going away this summer?
