Nifty Beauty Travel Items

I had planned to write a full packing review before my recent trip to Italy but for various reasons I just ran out of time and it never happened. I've picked up some great little travel items lately here in London that I thought deserved their own mini-post.

 Laqa and Co make the cutest nail varnish pens around. Their colour range is delightful and the packaging is lovely. Each piece of packaging features a design by young up and coming artists. I bought the nail polish pen in 'Tweedledee' which is a summery coral colour perfect for a pedicure before a beach holiday. They also do lip pencils which I am yet to try. I bought my nail polish pen on Amazon for about ยฃ10. In Australia you can buy them here  for $19.00. I can foresee many more purchases of these guys on the horizon.

Muji - how I love this company. They have the best clear perspex makeup storage systems (think Kim Kardashian's bathroom) which is another post entirely. Recently I have picked up a few things from their selection of empty travel bottles. These are great to use for decanting products into and I always do this with my Aspect moisturiser as it comes in a large pot which is not easily transportable. 

When travelling with small children you are not going to pay 4 euros every time you need a pair of underpants washed, so I also decant laundry liquid into a Muji bottle to take with us.

Just some of the vast range of Muji travel bottles, prices starting fromย ยฃ0.95

Muji also have great clear toiletry bags for ยฃ3.50 to store your in-flight necessities so going through security is a breeze.

I am traveling pretty regularly now that we are London based so I will share any other good finds with you as I come across them.
