What’s in Your Bag?

Nothing beats a holiday at the beach…frozen daiquiris, warm sunny rays and not a care in the world other than securing the best beach chair spot!

With the slightly insane baggage allowance limits and hilly European beach towns, good packing can save your back, feet and relationship from getting off to a bad start!

Below Zuri Girl shares a few of her favorite unique travel accessories that she doesn’t leave home without!

TLC for your Skin

The best holidays are filled with sun, ice cream and one too many cocktails, but indulging in life’s pleasures is all fun and games until your face starts turning into a teenagers blemished nightmare. It is essential to keep your skin clean, toned and hydrated while on vacation and the Swiss cosmetic line by Lydia Daïnow offers a multitude of skin savers.  The product line is diverse offering cleansers, creams, masks and toners for all skin types, designed to both prevent and conquer skin irritants.

Available at multiple locations throughout Zurich: search by zip.


A Stylish Scarf

Scarves are super light, easy to pack, do not wrinkle and serve many clever purposes!  You can use your feather light scarf to: add some cushion to the airplane window your head is resting on, dress up a casual daytime outfit, tie your hair back, warm yourself from the blasting AC, guard yourself from getting too much sun and use as a beach sarong. Bahnhofstrasse suits every budget from Hermès to Claire’s.


Pocket Sized Perfume

If you are the kinda gal that is as loyal to your perfume as a shopaholic is to ebay, then it can be detrimental when not allowed your favorite scent in your carry-on baggage.  Play it safe this summer by investing in Travalo Excel. Travalo is a pocket sized refillable perfume spray atomizer that is spill-proof, refills in seconds and holds 50 sprays and refills in seconds with an innovative valve system which you can see and purchase here.


Bra Travel Bag

Bigger breasts can often be a blessing and a curse and nothing is worse than attempting to pack your bras in the luggage without completely crushing their shape! To keep the strength and structure in tact, invest in a Bra Travel Bag. They hold 3 – 5 items, are fairly compact and will keep your bras in excellent shape.


Travel Jewelry

Leave your expensive goods at home and travel with fun and fashionable silver from Thomas Sabo. Exploit your wild side with his trendy “Rebel at Heart” collection, add a new charm with every holiday memory with his “Charms Collection” or dress up an elegant outfit with his “Classic Collection”. There is something for everyone and you can vacay worry-free about your jewels worry-free! Available at Jelmoli.
