Bonmarche was nice enough to send me this lovely holiday starter pack full of goodies, including a bathing suit from their line (which are incredibly affordable!):
They're also doing a contest where you can win a £3000 dream holiday! That sounds amazing to me. I'm definitely entering and if I win, I would love to pack up and head to Australia. I have some dear friends who moved there from the UK a couple of years ago who I would love to see. Aside from seeing them, I'd love to hold a koala, hang out on the beach and maybe try my hand at surfing. It is definitely one of the places I've always wanted to go, but since it is so far away from everything, it has never been accessible. So I plan to get on this and enter straight away. The deadline is June 6, so go hurry up!
When you go on holiday, how do you pack? I will be going to Ireland this summer (hardly a sunny destination, but still fun none the less!) and I am not the greatest at packing. In fact, I often overpack. However, some things I have learned is to carry travel sized versions of your favorite toiletries (or put them in travel size bottles) so you don't waste weight and space on a full sized item (unless you're moving somewhere). Also, pack your toiletries in a clear zipped bag so 1) you can see everything and 2) they are contained if they spill. You can also use shoes to store items like socks, jewelry and other things.
Where is your dream holiday destination?
