Packing for a Mini Break

I love squeezing in a mini break or two before our family summer holiday. A chance to get away just me and James and explore somewhere new, serves both as an opportunity to unwind but also recce a destination for future family breaks.

It’s not just the trip I enjoy. I actually love the packing bit! I find it a bit of a luxury just packing for myself without worrying about what the boys will need. And over the last couple of years I’m finally getting my head around how to pack light. Being decisive and brave with what you pack will pay off— not just in terms of baggage weight but also makes getting ready when you’re away a much quicker process!

I picked some simple pieces I know I’ll feel confident in from the new M&S summer collection. Typically me, in monochrome shades (but that’s often my default when packing light) that transition well from day to night, city to beach. And not only that, I found a great selection of beauty essentials for my trip there too, including James Read Sleep Mask Tan to get my skin holiday ready!
