Packing For One Night Away

Packing For One Night Away

Recently I went for a night away in Derbyshire, and whilst packing I realised that it was quite difficult to know what to pack for just one night. This is probably because I have always been an over packer, someone who takes something with them ‘just in case’. So, this time around I decided the best thing to do was pack lightly. I didn’t need to take a lot with me and so I wrote out a short list of things I would need for just one night away and thought I would share that with you today.

  • Cosy Pyjamas – probably the most important thing!
  • An outfit for the next day – something comfy for travelling home (leggings and a jumper)
  • Slippers and fluffy socks 
  • Garnier micellar water and cotton wool pads – to remove makeup
  • Moisturiser – I use the light moisturiser from simple
  • Concealer and mascara for a quick freshen up the next day
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste (of course)
  • Deodorant and perfume
 Handbag essentials
  • Phone and purse
  • Lip-gloss
  • Headphones – for the journey
  • Camera – to take lots of pictures of where I am going
  • Camera and phone charger
  • A book - I'm currently reading Mirror Mirror by Cara Delevingne 

That’s basically it! I just thought I’d put this quick post up so that, if anything, I have somewhere to refer back to next time I go on a short trip. I think it’s so easy to put lots of things you don’t need in your bag, but if you just stick to a small list it’s so much better – especially when you get home and have to just unpack it all again to put away.

Do you over pack like me? What do you like to take away with you for a short break overnight?
