I would declare carrying around a bulky DSLR frustrating, however having carried cameras with me for the best part of ten years now, it's pretty much become an unspoken accessory. A very large, heavy... necklace. Continuing with the theme of gadgets, I'll be leaving most of my tech at home as I'm a firm believer in breaks being treated as breaks! Besides, I've asked my mum to accompany me on this trip and I have a horrible feeling she'd attempt to dunk my Mac in the nearest river if I turned it on while away with her. Shudder. I will, however, be taking along my iPhone and a rather shiny one at that thanks to an aluminium-print phone case c/o from CaseApp. I had thought my previous green marble-printed case from the brand was gorgeous, but this custom iPhone case undoubtedly rises to first place!

These Swiss chocolate discs are my favourites right now, but what I believe to be even more important when travelling is reading material! I'm working my way through a couple of subscriptions at the moment (courtesy of Magazine.co.uk), including Elle Decor and Elle Magazine; the combination of fashion and interior design is sure to make that 1hr 25mins flight to Edinburgh... fly by!
I tend to keep makeup fairly minimal when visiting new places to avoid spending hours in front of the mirror, rather than out of the hotel room. Though, Clarins Instant Concealer will no doubt be a lifesaver for when I'm pushing myself to get up at the crack of dawn. Tap, tap, tap and tired eyes are no more. Phew!
Spot the gloves? Yeah, you can really tell I have no idea what to expect in Edinburgh at this time of year. One moment I'm considering gloves and scarves, and the next I'm eyeing up the gorgeous new #GETGLAMOROUS range by Quiz Clothing featuring dramatic designs and flattering fits. Though, I'm 99% certain I won't be able to walk up the steps of Edinburgh Castle in an embellished floor-sweeping gown. Pity, cagoule it is then...
