Looking for what to bring on your weekend city-break this winter? We've put together a packing list of the favourites we can't do without.
It's printable too! Just click here to download it.


  • Thermal Long Sleeve- get warmer without having to pack loads of huge jumpers in your tiny suitcase!
  • Leggings- same reason as above but you'll also want them to cosy up in the evenings
  • Two hats- all you're going to see in the photos is your eyes and nose poking out from under layers so might as well have a few variations!
  • Two Scarves


  • Gloves with smartphone fingertips- you'll want to be able to take a photo often!
  • Sunglasses 
  • Umbrella
  • Paracetamol & Plasters
  • Tissues
  • Hand Sanitiser - an absolute must!


You'll need to seriously cut down to fit them all into the tiny see-through liquid bag!

  • Deodorant
  • Moisturiser
  • Mini Shampoo & Conditioner (the ones at the hotel often suck!)
  • Foundation (or combo foundation and primer)
  • Mascara- it's still a liquid & they'll totally call you out on it!
  • Mini Toothpaste
  • Mini Setting Spray- you'll want to keep your look perfect through the whole day of sightseeing!
  • Hand Sanitiser - an absolute must!

Makeup Bag

Your cosmetic can't-live-withouts

  • Poreless Powder
  • Blush- to save space you can use your lipstick as a blush (it also gives you a really nice complexion)
  • Shorter Brushes- save space & weight with half size makeup brushes
  • Eyeliner
  • Shadow Palette- try to find one that has all your shades, rather than carrying three!
  • Nail Scissors & Tweezers - practically like carrying a DIY multitool!
  • The Flat Lay Co. Makeup Bag- a super speedy way to pack but more importantly it'll protect your cosmetics from hotel countertops!
