My hubby and I booked this trip back in December. I decided this was the year for doing more... and so far this is city break number 2!
I had been SO excited for it for so long so was pleased to see the weekend finally come around! I' did so much googling before hand to see where to go and... I'm pretty sure I want to go everywhere. A colleague of mine actually went the weekend before us so I got lots of top tips!
We had 3 days in the city so plenty of time to walk lots and see all the sites.
First things first, packing! With a city break you really need to be practical. With only taking a hand luggage bag you need to be prepared with all your minis! This time I have the addition of some beautiful MASON products which will make the journey all the more enjoyable!
I decided to be very sensible this trip and only pack what I really need. Starting with toiletries, I've got my mini deodorant (I mean it's SO mini!! this is 35ml... I don't know why they don't just make it 100ml) a mini face moisturiser and a tiny shampoo, conditioner.
Now for something a little more luxurious from MASON are these gorgeous little soaps. They smell amazing and are far nicer than any miniature I could have bought in Boots. It's also so handy that they have their own little tin box so you can pop it in your bag not worrying that any moisture will escape after use.
For the couple of hours that I'm up in the air, I have my MASON mini cashmere blanket with a matching eye mask which are both so lovely and soft! We caught the 7am flight Friday morning, so catching up on sleep was much needed. These both helped hugely!
While travelling it is so important to stay hydrated. That's where this gorgeous stainless steel travel bottle came in handy! A lovely secure lid so no spillages to worry about!
With accessories aside, I packed a comfortable pair of shoes (maybe the most important thing!) a warm coat (my trusty Canada Goose) as the forecast was clear but chilly, 5 degrees was the peak, and of course a hat and pair of gloves. All set for a weekend in a beautiful city! I've even got my city map ready... courtesy of a friend.
