travel tech nadia el ferdaoussi penneys primark


We’ve all done it. Turned up at the airport and realised the charger is still plugged in beside the bed and had to dish out more cash than anticipated for an airport replacement. You’ve got no other choice at that stage, so they’ll charge whatever for travel tech and you’ll hand over the dolla through gritted…

I get massive wardrobe envy everywhere I travel, but especially in Ibiza when the style rating is off the charts. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m just not the kind of person who will ever be “fashionable”, so I’m focusing more on style and staples to make dressing and more importantly for me, packing easier. I’ve created a bit of a capsule summer wardrobe that allows me to mix and match and look as pulled together as possible with minimal effort.

My wardrobes comprises of black, white, grey and denim and most of the shops have their Autumn stock in already which muted neutrals and at brightest a burgundy print, so finding something to fit the brief proved rather difficult. I went as a guest of Dove, you see…who have just launched the first deodorant to leave no white marks on 100 different colours.

Packing x Penneys

Although, in the last few years, I’ve got much better at packing…it’s still always a massive pain in the arse isn’t it? Does anyone actually enjoy it? If you do, we’ve got a spare bedroom…feel free to take up full time residency! About a month before a trip I get excited and think, “Do you know what? This time I’m going to be really organised. I’ll do it now while I have the time and then it’s done and out of the way.” Not sure who I’m trying to fool, it obviously never happens that way.
