A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS – A SNEAK PEEK AT MY WEEKEND PACKING

For a weekend in Yorkshire, packing went a little something like this.

Headphones | Panasonic

The sound quality in these is awesome, they're so good at blocking everything else out.

Book | Dear Lumpy, Letters to a Disobedient Daughter

The follow-up to Dear Lupin, which I read last year and found hilarious. Both books consist of a series of letters sent to son and, in this case, daughter, from their despairing father throughout their struggles at school and later in life. Let's just say he has a very dry wit.

Beanie | Scotch & Soda

Because Yorkshire was even more bitter than London.

Black Leather Bracelet | Whistles

Easy to wear in the day and for suppers in the evening.

Concealer | Laura Mercier

One of my essential make-up items.

Mascara | Calvin Klein

Another essential, though it's coming to an end (sob).

Hair Oil | U Luxury

I happened to know there was an extremely nice bathroom where we were staying – complete with enormous fluffy white towels – that I had long luxurious baths in, so a bit of post bath pampering is always nice. Plus, winter and central heating are no doubt drying out my hair.

Body Moisturiser | Laura Mercier

I flit between lots of different body mositurisers, but this one I picked up in a sample sale at Vogue House is amazing.

Star Foundation | Dior

I'd never really worn foundation before, but this one is very light and easy, and has been a real go-to essential over the winter months.

Hand Cream | Clarins

I was given this for Christmas last year and have managed to make it last (most likely because I have a few others kicking around in various handbags/on bedside tables).

Scent | Chloé

So small and easy to pack and a very light and pretty fragrance. I’m not keen on anything too heavy or overpowering.

Earrings | Kate Spade New York

Because I'm a bit obsessed with these hoops.

Rose Gold Bangle | Monica Vinader

This recently jumped out of my present drawer and onto my wrist, where it has remained pretty much ever since.

iPad Mini | Apple

Especially good for the train journey.

Wrist Warmers | Hush

Love the way they look, love the way they feel.
