My Kindle Paper White: How did we survive without this? Amazing when jet lagged and I can read a little with the tiny glow from the screen. This invention has totally reintroduced me to reading after losing the habit with kids!
Mio The Activist Firming Active Body Oil: I always have a travel size of this incredible all purpose oil. Trebles up as a facial oil and an overnight hair treatment. Packed with vitamins, Omegas and antioxidants, it is based on our infamous Mama Mio the Tummy Rub that we created for my first son (Charlie, now 6’5”!) so the experience is even more special as the essential oil fragrance takes me back to such a special time (with FREE rose coloured spectacles thrown in!).
Training Gear: I love any kind of fitness, and travel often introduces me to new things – like aerial yoga in New York recently! So I always have a tiny bundle of tanks and pants that take up no space, but remind me to find a class somewhere; wherever I am.
Mama Mio Lucky Legs: When I was pregnant, my legs swelled up and were really uncomfortable, especially during warmer weather. We created Lucky Legs cooling serum for exactly this issue and I still use it today. Brilliant on planes to keep circulation flowing in lower legs and feet; perfect to help recover post a high heel event and just spot on to give instant refreshment and relief using on pulse points and temples to stop tension headaches and jet lag.
My Gold Top: Made of some strange leatherette fabric, this instantly adds a pop to any outfit!
