High Summer With Bon Marché & My Top Tips For Holiday Packing!

I was recently contacted by the high street brand Bon Marché asking if I would like to take part in their campaign called 'High Summer'. It's all about your top tips for holiday packing and your dream holiday. As I love all things summery and I am going on my dream holiday this year, I couldn't wait to take part.

They also very kindly sent me my very own holiday starter pack which includes all the beach essentials like swimwear, a sun hat, a summery beach bag, sun cream and of course a pair of sunglasses. Now Bon Marché are a shop I have never shopped in, so I was a bit unsure of what to expect but I have to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised!

I was able to choose my own piece of swimwear and I settled on this cute floral one piece. Now I don't normally wear one pieces but I thought this would be ideal for water parks, so you don't have any 'embarrassing moments' on the water slides.
I am a lover of floppy hats and this one is just perfect. It can be molded into shape and also comes with a cute polka dot band around the top, which is a nice added detail.
To go with the hat, I also received a cute straw bag which is the perfect size to take on a trip to the beach. If you're anything like me, you'll need a bag this size to fit in all your beachy essentials!
Just like the floppy hat, I am a big lover of over sized sunglasses. I can see myself wearing these on holiday as well as throughout the Summer. These are super comfy and do the job perfectly!
Of course you can't forget the Sun Cream, one of the most important beach essentials. I have used Piz Buin before, so I am very happy to have another bottle!

My Dream Holiday

My dream holiday would definitely be to visit Walt Disney World in Orlando and I can't believe that this year, my dreams are coming true! I will flying out to the land of dreams, for the very first time in September!
I have wanted to visit Disney World, ever since I was a little girl. It has always looked so magical and of course, being a huge Disney lover it's the perfect place to visit!

My Top Tips For Holiday Packing

Create A List

I love nothing more than making a good list and I get super excited when I make my holiday packing list! It's a simple but effective idea and I always do it. I tick/cross off the items when I have packed them in my suitcase, making sure I haven't forget anything. If you do struggle, you can easily type into google holiday packing lists, just to give you a few ideas of what to pack!

Wear Your Heavier Items

Kind of an obvious tip but make sure you wear your heaviest items and pack your lightest. Not only will you save space in your case, you'll also save on baggage allowance.

Roll Roll Roll

My boyfriend actually taught me this trick, so kudos to him! Roll every item that can be rolled as this will reduce creasing and will actually create more space in your suitcase.

Towel On Top

I always place my towel on top! Not only do I feel this helps keep everything neat and tidy and in place, but what's one of the first things you want to do when you arrive to the destination? Take a dip in the pool! It will be there handy, along with your swimwear of course!

Plan Your Outfits

Although it may be hard to plan what to wear one to two weeks in advance, it will reduce how much you take. I like to lay the possible outfits on my bed with all the accessories to see what I can mix and match.

Bon Marché are currently running an amazing competition where you could be in with a chance of winning a holiday of your choice worth £3,000!! Sounds pretty amazing right? If you would like to know more and would like to enter, click here.
