Our pick of the best holiday and honeymoon essentials around, from stylish swimsuits and suitcases to sassy skincare and sexy shades.
First on your list needs to be holiday skincare. Invest in a good quality all over sunscreen, a sensitive higher SPF sunscreen for your face and you simply can’t do without the gorgeous Hawaiian Tropic coconut body butter after sun. And as it’s your honeymoon treat yourself to the amazing Benefit ‘Do the Hoola’ holiday beauty travel kit! You will love it, it actually makes you want to do the hoola!
We absolutely love these fab flip flops that leave a ‘Just Married’ indentation in the sand wherever you walk in them. Wear them with the sweetest ‘Just Married’ sunglasses to show you’re on your honeymoon and get a (hopefully) instant upgrade!
Pack a one-piece swimsuit and bikini; a strapless, one-piece will ensure you get tanned shoulders without annoying white strap marks, a pattern will visually hide any lumps and bumps while black will give you the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. The cool, loose white maxi dress could be the ultimate in comfort wear, while the cute patterned playsuit will show off legs and arms. And the string bikini is back, wear it floral to be totally on trend this summer.
It’s time to treat yourselves to new suitcases – for your holiday of a lifetime. We love these glossy yellow suitcases in three different sizes – instantly recognisable. If you’d rather pack everything into one case then this sturdy stylish black one is the one. Don’t forget to pack a beach bag and separate bikini bag for wet swimwear!
