Elizabeth's travel tip no 1: check the weather before you travel
Elizabeth says: "I tend to look at the weather predicated for each destination I am travelling to so I am able to pack clothing to suit the temperature.

Elizabeth's travel tip no 2: don't neglect your skincare regime
Elizabeth's says: "Cabin crew are often awake for over 24 hours due to the time difference in certain places which is why it is always important to maintain your daily skin care routine. This ensures your skin is always hydrated and feeling fresh. To achieve this I always travel with my Arbonne clear future range which cleanses, exfoliates, calms and moisturises your skin which is absolutely paramount."
Elizabeth's travel tip no 3: make sure your travel wash bag shape suits your suitcase
Elizabeth says: "Due to Emma's square shape, she fits perfectly in the corner of my suitcase. This means I can pack my clothing around her and there’s always room for shopping while on my layover! All of my beauty products are in one place which means I can pick my Emma wash bag out of my suitcase, take her to the bathroom and begin my beauty regime straight away."
Elizabeth's travel tip no 4: organise your beauty products into specific compartments
Elizabeth's says: "My facial products are placed in the detachable compartment and my make-up is all lined up in the zip compartment. All of these final touches makes all of my beauty products clearly visible so I know where every item is."
