18 things you need to pack in your holiday luggage

This isn't an 'Essential Items You Can't Forget' holiday listicle. I've just found some really nice things in the shops.

Isn't it funny how you feel compelled to pack a whole new wardrobe when you're off on your holibobs? Because you're more than likely going somewhere where the weather is... different from ours, it's fair to say you'll have to stock up on the old shorts and tees. The weather we had recently was a good excuse to buy nice things for work and to buy a new pair of fancy sandals, but when you're going on holidays, you need a different look.

When I go on holidays, I transform into Goldie Hawn in Overboard. I wear all white to show off my mahogany tan. I only take my massive Rachel Zoe-style sunglasses off when I'm going to bed. To disguise the fact that my hair is a fuzzy mess in the humidity, I don a metre-wide sun hat. If you can't unleash the glamour goddess that dwells within when you're on vacay, when can you?

If you're humming and hawing over it, DO bring check-in luggage. You're not going on a weekend city break. Bring everything. (Including someone big and burly so they can carry your case.) Bring a swimsuit for every day you're there, too.
