Two days out from a Love & Object buying trip to Europe, and it seems we've put just as much thought into our carry on as we have into our trip wardrobe. If you prefer to change time zones in style, find out what we'll be stowing here:
One large sturdy bag with zip closure and inner compartments to hold passport, pens and portable cell phone charger. The Givenchy Antigona
should do it.
Sunglasses - especially these Thierry Lasry
ones - for when you leave the airport after an 18 hour flight.
A compact (flight-approved) tub of organic coconut oil to layer over face serum and for hands, lips and cuticles. We prefer Pure Coco
Koh Gen Do
's cleansing spa water makeup wipes. Each one is infused with essential oils that do double duty in calming our mind when the flight hours are crawling by.
Skin & Tonic London's delicious Calm Balm
. Massage it into wrists and temples, it's the ultimate mood improver. Also helpful for encouraging shut eye.
Favourite accessories - clip on earrings
are great for throwing on after landing, as well as anything sentimental you don't trust to put in check-in luggage.
Pouch of paracetamol, anti-nausea, and melatonin tablets - never rely on cabin staff for any decent medication.
