Holiday essentials giveaway

 
What’s your most important summer holiday essential? On top of your normal packing of clothes and suncream, I mean.
Is it your beach bag? Your waterproof mascara? Your Kindle, or perhaps your travel adaptor?
I just went on a holiday to Sweden, and with the journey from door to door taking between 10-12 hours (train, flight, and then another train) my holiday essential is some sort of sit-down entertainment. I was gutted that I forgot my headphones for the trip this time, but at least I had my tablet on which I could read a book.

I am going to Barcelona in a month’s time, and I couldn’t imagine going there without a good city/beach bag, in which I can fit everything from a wallet and other everyday essentials, to a towel and a bikini. Many say that Barcelona is the ultimate destination as it includes both city life and beach relaxation.
BUT… I must say that my ultimate holiday essential is my camera!

I am hosting a #HolidayEssentials giveaway for my lovely readers in collaboration with Intellicig, and if you’re UK based you can be in it to win the set pictured, which includes:
A neon pink and cream beach bag from Accessorize
A worldwide travel adaptor
A waterproof disposable camera
A vintage design luggage tag
A cute and stripy sunglasses case
An in-flight comfort kit (including inflatable jersey neck pillow, earplugs & padded jersey eye mask)

All you have to do to enter is to do 1 or more of the entry options in the widget below. The more options you enter by – the higher the chance to win!
Remember that you have to be a UK resident to enter.

Good luck! :D

  1. Suncream! I am fair and suffered from prickly heat when I was younger so now I always make sure I cover up! I hate the thought of growing old and wrinkly too with sun-damaged skin so prefer to apply self tan and stay young looking!
