WHILE IT'S CERTAINLY a privilege to see the world through travel, there is no denying that the flight between Australia and a number of global locations leaves little to be desired.
Some say, 'oh, but what a fabulous opportunity to catch up on films? Reading? Sleep, even?'.
We absolutely agree that 24-hours is ample time to rest and recuperate. However our imminent trip to London means the journey is most certainly outshone by the destination!
With the Autumnal leaves due to start falling around the same time as we land, we will be packing everything to keep us warm under those grey, but oh-so charming London skies!
JAC+JACK CASHMERE SWEATER
Cashmere is one of the most luxurious fabrics - warm, soft, flattering! In a transeasonal colour, like grey marle, be prepared to succumb to the fact that you will want to wear this sweater day-in, day-out - we forgive you in advance for repeat dressing (we will be too!).
RATIONALE HYDROVITALE EMULSION
This Rationale créme-gel can be found in two places - our travel bag and our bathroom cabinet. This little beauty is used to calm and correct combination dry skin. We like to keep it on standby for when our skin needs a little TLC.
R.M. WILLIAMS MILLICENT BOOT
While your personal onboard protocol may be shoes that slide easily on and off (resplendent with woollen socks), once disembarking it's time to up the ante with chic-yet-comfortable footwear. This is where we propose the R.M. Williams Millicent boot. All made in Australia, R.M. Williams is having a serious moment that we are obsessed with!
LUMIRA PERSIAN ROSE TRAVEL CANDLE
For obvious reasons, this is a light-upon-arrival travel essential (unless an encounter with an air marshall is high on your bucket list). The Lumira Persian Rose fragrance is perfect for turning your accomodation into a relaxing sanctuary.
BOOKS, BOOKS AND MORE BOOKS.
As we expressed earlier, 24-hours is ample time to relax, recuperate and in our minds, catch up on literature. We would advise selecting a few classic and contemporary titles from Penguin and let your mind wander! More than that, the soft covers means you save your baggage allowance for important things... like shoes.
