What's in my carry on bag?

Hello everyone,
Regular readers of this blog would probably have wondered where I disappeared off to by now so let me explain,basically I was away holiday for the entire duration of the 2 week Easter holidays.I was supposedly going to schedule this post but I was quite busy with school and didn't have the time to write the post up or take pictures.When I got back and started school again I was swamped with revision for numerous test we were to have in a the coming few weeks so I ended up announcing on an Instagram post that I was to take a break and return to normal on the 8th of May...so I hope that kind of clears the issue up on why theres been no posts for over a month.


I wish I hadn't had to do it because I've missed blogging but what can I say eh?At least I'm all refreshed and ready to start my hobby again!

The bag I decided to take was a simple  black handbag from H&M;it wasn't practical I admit but it did the job(it had a shoulder strap anyway so when my arm got tired I could sling it over my shoulder in order to take some weight off).

In the middle compartment I kept two schoolbooks to do my homework in and a pencil case filled with pens,pencils,a ruler,a gluestick and a pair of scissors (obviously under 6cm) along with a disposable plastic bag of snacks and a bottle of water.To keep me "entertained" on top of that I also took Zoella's book;Girl Online:On Tour as well as my keys,phone and earphones in the smaller zipped compartment by the side.
In the front zipped compartment I put in a pair of snuggly fluffy socks which were from Primark,because I wanted to make sure I was comfortable and warm during the over 10 hour long haul flight(plus my feet get cold pretty easily).

Lastly in the opposite zipped compartment I placed a clear plastic makeup bag from The Body Shop filled with travel sickness tablets,hand gel,Nivea roll on deodorant,a Zoella Let's spritz perfume,a 45ml pot of Soap and Glory's Righteous body butter and some hairbands wrapped around a packet of Bobby pins inside.I chose to put all my makeup in my suitcase as I ended up going makeup free that day.
If any of you guys are personally thinking if bringing stuff like this however I just want to mention I would seriously not recommend it!The amount of times I got in trouble with security in the baggage screening was ridiculous,I'd recommend only bringing 1 or 2 liquids with you if possible because otherwise you'll be waiting 20 minutes for them to finish searching other people's bags also shoved in the "not appropriate" side of the conveyor belt as you stand shoeless like a lost child by the side.Then you're forced to wait an added 10 minutes for a scowling man/woman who works in security to brutally inspect of your bag with a toilet brush(yes seriously,one of them mini ones)and check if everything in the bag is up scratch and within their requirments.Luckily nothing got taken away from me but the task took up a lot of time(it's especially annoying if you're travelling with friends/family because they'd be made to along wait with you).

I also carried a small plastic bag in the same compartment filled with an Always tin of pads and some spare underwear-sadly that's life for girls out there I guess...
If anybody reading is about to jet off soon,I wish you all a safe journey and of course a good time.*Insert kissing emoji*

P.S:My parents kept my passport and plane ticket in their own bag's,so that's why I didn't give them a mention in this post before you guys get a bit confused aha.

    1. Thanks Laura,I did;The weather was a really nice change from the cold and wet weather in the UK.Liquids is a tricky one but personally the best thing I'd say to do would be to bring what you need x
