It’s holiday season and if you’re off on your vacation soon we’ve got a Hopscotch holiday edit with everything you need for your city breaks, week in the sun or something more exotic!
A holiday must have are bags or pouches you can put your small items in. We always need something to put all those miniature shampoos in or somewhere to keep your passport and documents safe and separate from your other items. We’ve just got a brand new collection of leather pouches to fill your organising needs. These gorgeous little bags come in two sizes, one is the perfect size for coins and money, the other is great for larger items like iPad minis or cosmetics. They are made in Italy using 100% leather and come in a classic black or a chic dark grey. We love both!
Now you’ve got your storage sorted you need something to go inside it! We find our skin hates the aeroplane atmosphere and ends up being super dry. Our saviour is this Herbivore Botanicals facial oil. It’s available in two variants — Orchid works best on younger skin and acts as an ageing preventative. It’s Orchid extract naturally draws moisture to the skin and works to smooth and condition; it’s a potent antioxidant that fights premature ageing and the effects of free radicals. Phoenix acts as a regeneration for mature skin, its formula contains CoQ10, which can increase the skins collagen production, leading to better skin elasticity and less fine lines and wrinkles. Both of these oils come in an aeroplane friendly size (under 100ml) and with their handy roller ball bottles, these are great for use on the go. Another 100% natural beauty product to rescue your skin after a flight is our sweet orange lip balm. Containing super hydrating cocoa butter, high in fatty acids, this lip product works to improve the elasticity and moisture retention of the skin. This balm is sure to revive any lacklustre lips once you arrive at your destination. It’s also great to apply throughout your stay to keep your lips in tip top condition.
Our signature 5 free formula nail varnish comes in some gorgeous beach ready colours, hot pink gives your fingertips a fun and fresh colour pop and our lilac shade looks amazing with a tan! If you want to find out more about what 5 free actually means check out our blog post with everything you need to know here. If your hair starts looking dry and damaged in the heat and humidity Herbivore Botanical’s Therapy Hair Oil is just what you need to retain your luscious locks. Japanese Camellia oil softens, adds shine and retains hairs moisture, while Argan oil nourishes and is rich in vitamins that feed and strengthen the hair shaft. Plus, at 60ml, this is the perfect travel size.
We love having a little notebook with us when we travel so we can make notes, doodle and write down points of interest — a travel journal really is the perfect holiday companion. Our pocket notebooks come in so many colour and pattern combinations there really is one to suit any style. They’re the perfect size to fit in a pocket or handbag, ready to be draw in at any moment. You’re going to need something to scribble with and these colour block pens really fit the bill. They’re lightweight, compact and super smooth the write with, choose your favourite colour to match your notebook!
We hope you have an amazing time on your trip away and find this holiday edit useful, and if you’re going on a staycation this year, go on, treat yourself anyway!
