Starting tomorrow the nation will be taking advantage of a gorgeously long weekend, thanks to back-to-back Bank holidays and the Royal Wedding next week! We’ve been blessed with scorching temperatures and many of you will be making the most of the holiday by hitting the coast or taking advantage of last-minute deals – and why not!

Tomorrow I shall be heading to Cornwall (so it really is good!) for some much needed R’n’R,  and although I am embracing this unexpected heat wave it has sent me into a little bit of a panic regarding my summer wardrobe…or lack of it! Lucky for me, keeping up with my beauty regime is the easy part – Bath & Unwind have some gorgeous travel friendly treats (I have been warned by my boyfriend to travel light… or face being left at home), and as with any weekend away it’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in some serious pampering.

So here’s my run down of the best travel-friendly luxuries that I never leave home without!

Neom Luxury Travel Candle Collection: Morning, Noon and Night –  Granted, it sounds a little over the top to pack my own candles,  but nothing makes me feel more at home. The morning pick-me up is a gem, creating an atmosphere that uplifts my mood, and the a pre dinner pampering treat and a pre bedtime wind down are great for setting a mood.

My face and body will be relying on This Works Travel Body Care Kit. My normal skincare regime need not be compromised, as my favourite This Works mini products fit snugly inside this travel pouch. I get nervous if I’m without This Works Clean Skin for more than 24 hours!

Keeping my hair looking good and frizz-free can be a bit of a challenge; I trust Bumble and Bumble Live Fully Travel Bag (so cute) because I shall be coveting ‘Big Hair’ on my mini break a la Kate Middleton, naturally.

And with the weather forecast set to hit the mid 20s this weekend (yes!), it’s time to invest in a good sunscreen. I’ll be using my favourite Jurlique SPF 30 Sun Lotion – a very light formula which works well under makeup – fragranced with delicious botanical ingredients, it smells divine. Stay cool and hydrated with Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist – a firm fixture in my handbag and on my desk during the warmer months, one spritz refreshes your makeup and gives your skin a dewy look.

I hope you have a very relaxing bank holiday weekend – enjoy the sunshine!
