If any of you guys watch Made In Chelsea, you’ll know I’ve got an exciting adventure on the horizon. I’m heading off to stateside for a couple of months – we’re taking MiC to NYC, so watch out America! A bunch of my best buddies from the show are coming along (and, yes, some of my not-so-favourite friends, too).
It’s going to be an amazing trip, but I’m such a homegirl that I know I’ll miss the mates I’ve left behind. So me and my girl gang have booked a last-minute weekend away. We’re heading off to the countryside for two days of pampering, gossip and giggles.
I’ve gathered up my perfect weekend beauty kit. I’m not taking tons of lotions and potions – just my favourite selection of tried-and-tested travel products that keep me gorgeous on the go.
BINKY’S MINI-BREAK ESSENTIALS
Tisserand – Travel Survival Kit
I’m a great believer in the power of aromatherapy. Essential oils can work wonders, calming your nerves, boosting your energy after a long journey or soothing you off to sleep. This triple-pack of roll-on oils is a travel must-have for me – especially Sweet Dreams: a quick dab on my pulse points and I’m straight off to the land of nod.
Philip Kingsley – Jet Set Soft and Shiny Pack
I give my hair a pretty hard time – constant styling, over-heating and extensions can leave my crowning glory looking less than glorious. This twin pack of products is the perfect solution. Together, the shampoo and conditioner will condition and nourish your hair, improving and maintaining its health to give it a renewed shine and bounce.
Binky London – Gel Effect Nail Polish in Chelsea Coral
OK – I know this is one of my nail products so I’m bound to be biased, but it looks so amazing, I’ve been wearing non-stop recently. It’s made with a high-end gel base that utilises the best in nail lacquer technology, giving you fabulously glossy results. Like all the Binky London products, it’s also free from chemical nasties such as Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene and Formaldehyde, so your nails will be both beautiful and healthy too.
L’Occitane – Shea Butter Hand Cream
What’s the point in having beautiful nails if your hands look dry and dreadful?! This award-winning hand cream really deserves it’s reputation as an iconic skin saver. Its super-smoothing 20% concentration of shea butter cocoons hands in moisture, while antioxidant Vitamin E ensures your skin is protected from ageing free radicals. It smells yummy too!
Marc Jacobs – Daisy Eau so Fresh Delight Eau de Toilette Spray
A summer getaway calls for a fresh summery fragrance, and the don’t come any lovelier than this one. It’s vibrant fruity mix of blood orange, raspberry, apricot and amber lifts your spirits and leaves you smelling good enough to eat.
Got to rush – my bags are packed, the taxi’s outside and the girls are waiting. So have a great bank holiday – I know I will! And always stay gorgeous!
