Travel Essentials 2019
Packing for a getaway can be stressful especially if you’re away for an extended period of time. I recently spent four weeks in Europe which entailed me exploring a few countries and some very different climates. Here’s what I packed for my recent trip to Europe.
Funky Trunks Shorty Shorts – Club Tropo
I always pack swimwear because the opportunity for a dip always presents itself. I like my swim shorts to always make a splash and this season I’m loving the bright and fun print Club Tropo by Funky Trunks. The brands Shorty Shorts are always at the top of my list when it comes to swimwear because they’re super comfortable and show off my best assets…my legs! Constructed of quick-drying polyesters and 10% elastane, they have a nice stretch and a short and stylish appearance. They also feature a built-in brief for added support, deep side pockets, drawcord to fasten and branded brass hardware for a premium finish. Funky Trunks Shorty Shorts Club Tropo AUD 64.95
LAB SERIES Skincare for Men Age Rescue
Let’s face it while we’re away we like to indulge whether it’s drinking a little more than we should, spending late nights out at bars or sitting in the sun and not hydrating enough, these factors all contribute to our complexion. This trip I packed LAB Series Age Rescue Face Lotion which features a high-tech formula instantly soothes, calms and hydrates skin, and over time is said to visibly firm the skin preventing the formation of new lines and wrinkles – pretty impressive right? Featuring the brands patented G-Action complex and a blend of powerful peptides, it aids the skins natural collagen production and a blend of antioxidants help fight the damage of environmental factors to slow down signs of ageing. LAB SERIES Skincare for Men Age Rescue Lotion AUD 80.
Gucci Memoire d’une Odeur
Gucci’s latest genderless scent is fabulous! It has a unique blend of ingredients that capture attention. This Mineral Aromatic fragrance features notes of Roman Chamomile, Indian Coral Jasmine, Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Vanilla at its base. While it may sound sweet and intense, Memoire d’une Odeur is magnificently light and airy but has longevity on the skin leaving a lasting impression. Best of all this scent can be dressed up or down making it appropriate for any occasion while you're abroad. Gucci Memoire d’une Odeur 100ml EDP AUD 180.
