The Ultimate neutral capsule travel Collection May 12, 2015 00:07

With holiday season fast approaching, and lots of lucky people jetting off on family holidays or heading away for a City Break with your nearest and dearest, we all want to look our best! travelling light is always a tricky for me (8 pairs of shoes does not constitute light travel!) lack of space can spell trouble- how can you possibly fit 8 pairs of shoes and 10 carefully planned outfits if your so space restricted? Capsule suitcase is our chosen topic- what to pack, what to take without compromising on skin, hair care or style.
So here is my top must haves for that weekend in the sun or the city, from top to toe!

I love Davines, and on my last visit to Rae Peacock hair, I picked up the wonderful Davines Oi range which suits all hair types. The main ingredient is Roucou oil which smoothes, shines and protects against heat and free radicals. When I bought two products I picked up this cute pochette free with a travel size shampoo and conditioner- perfect for getting through security at the airport and light enough not to weigh me down! They also have the Oi oil in travel size and the Oi milk (only £6:75 for that size) which I love. Firstly, the Oil is their answer to Moroccan oil but better. The milk is a spray on magic potion. It heat-protects from the drier and irons and also has brilliant UV protection which stops colour fading. A massive draw for me was the fact the whole range speeds up drying time by 50%!, the Roucou Oil acts like a wax jacket and water says on the surface of your hair (Rae explained!). Apart from making my hair feel amazing, the smell is to DIE for! Try it.
 
Davines hair range is available at Rae Peacock Hair, 42 New Row, Perth 01738 248100


I'm sure I'm not alone with this- at this time of year my skin is tired and dull and need of that boost.


With wearing less makeup in the sun, I want to make sure my skin looks bright and feels good, underneath my mineral makeup-  Vitage Vitamin C Radiance Serum is an instant fix for dull tired skins. It combines encapsulated Vitamin C to energise the complexion, plus Argantensyl to firm and tighten the skin. Great on décolleté, necks or around eyes for an instant lift.

When it comes to getting ready at night on holiday, I've gotten pretty lazy ( more to do with being a lush that doesn't like to miss out on valuable in the sun drinking time!) So I always strive to find something casual enough to wear on the beach, but not too laid back you can't take it straight off the beach into a bar or restaurant.

In Eva Lucia we have a lush range of boho maxi dresses- all with Drawstring ties to neck and bust so you can adjust to your body shape. Loose and flowing perfect for comfort in the summer, without compromising on style.

My colour choice would be a neutral shade, (white to show off the tan).



 

For over the maxi or the swimsuit or the maxi dress, I adore our Japanese Kimono, with over sized sleeves in a beautiful sheer mint green with bird print in Japanese style, this comes with a detachable belt, so wear closed or let it hang loose.

 

 

Keeping with the boho theme, I love love these Brazilan made leather sandals with cork wedge- major hint towards my favourite decade for style,  the 70’s. With  padded sock and lightweight wedge these sandals are perfect for all day on the foot. The contrast snakeskin ankle straps add a pop of colour to your outfit.

 

 

 

Our range of talented canvas bags will be my alternative to a bulky beach bag- Sand and chlorine are harsh on our clothes and accessories, so i never want to spend an excessive amount on beach accessories, so at £12 this fits the bill perfectly.
