Take the morning off to attend a baking masterclass with Paul Hollywood? That didn’t require much thinking – of course I would love to! Some of the places I get to experience whilst attending events for my blog are so beautiful. This event was held […]
Be prepared – once a Girl Guide always a Girl Guide! I like to be ready for anything when I travel.
If I am travelling by any means other than car I always like to take care that my lotions and potions don’t leak out all over my nice clothes. To avoid this I will put shampoo and conditioners in a large, plastic zip-lock bag. That way if they leak I won’t find my nice top all covered in shampoo or conditioner!
I also use the smaller size bags to keep things together in my cases.
And as well as taking the bags full of things I always take a handful of different sizes for bringing things home (Remember I do like to bring things home from far away places!).
Another travel must take is bubble wrap. I get loads of parcels delivered and therefore save lots of bubble wrap through out the months – you can never have too much bubble wrap! Bubble wrap doesn’t weigh much and I use it to add extra padding on the outward leg of my journey however it is invaluable for wrapping any jars or slightly delicate items for the homeward journey. I have used it in my hand luggage before to wrap those things too delicate to go into the checked-in baggage as well.
The one jar I bring with me everywhere is my coconut oil which I put in a zip lock bag and wrap this in bubble wrap – better be safe than covered in coconut oil!
Do you ever use bubble wrap or zip lock bags for travelling – please share your tips in the comment section below.

met Dannii we belong to the same food blogger support groups and offer each
other encouragement and support in the often cut-throat life of food
blogging. Danni’s journey has been epic
and the results of her journey are here now for everyone to read and benefit
Overweight and unfit with an increasing number of health worries Dannii set out to change her life one bite at a time. Dannii says it is basically eat less-count your calories and exercise and throughout the book gives you loads and loads of helpful ways to do exactly this.
There are comforting recipes such as Sausage Casserole and Shepherd’s Pie and indulgent ones including Mango and Raspberry Cheesecake and Chocolate Avocado Mousse.
Each recipe has a nutritional breakdown and there are loads of little tips to make life a bit easier too.
Losing weight and getting fit doesn’t have to feel like a diet but a new way of eating – making smart choices however you don’t have to give up on the food you love and the little treats. Dannii’s story is heart warming and inspiring so please take the time to read through the beginning of the book and not just jump straight to the mouth watering recipes however tempting they look!
Thanks to Dannii’s publisher Jacqui Small, I was sent a copy of Hungry Healthy Happy to review. I was not expected to provide a positive review. All photos are my own.
