Holiday Essentials: CROTIA

Holiday Essentials: CROTIA

In preparation for my holiday tomorrow, I’ve got some new holiday essentials from Thalgo and Malin+Goetz. The older I get, the more aware I am of my skin and it’s exposure under the sun (not so much back in the day when I was living in Australia, hardly wearing sun lotion – BIG mistake). Even though I’ve  got slight sun damage from all my years travelling and living abroad in sunny Barcelona – it’s never not too late to invest in proper sun care.Thalgo, is a great brand which works well with my skin, so I was curios to try out their sun care range! I have opted for SPF30 for my face and SPF15 on my body, although I might bring along some higher factor for my body – all depending on the weather.

Something I’ve always been after, is a small travel kit containing all your necessary products… Welcome Malin+Goetz Essential Travel Kit – you are exactly what I was after. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, body cream and face cream. Yes, just about everything I need for a weekend trip!

Now, I need to rush and pack my bags for my (way too early) flight to Croatia tomorrow morning! I hate to pack. It’s the worst part of the holiday. For someone who is super organised and efficient when it comes to just about everything in life – this is my one weakness. As I’m such a spontaneous dresser, and dress according to my mood – I am not one of those who likes to plan their outfits day by day in advance. I rather pack loads (way too many) options, and chop and change. Obviously, this has resulted in the past with a missing jacket, jumper, trouser to match a certain outfit etc., but it’s the way I do it. I do however have a few super cute outfit combos I intend to wear, which are all recent purchases (going on the blog as soon as I’m back). Can’t wait to show you!

      Hi Eva,

      We stayed at Le Meridien – a great hotel with access to large pool as well as beach! About 10-15 drive to Split town.
