In-Car Essentials | Autumn Edition

I uploaded this Instagram snap a couple of weeks ago when in my car and it gave me the idea to do this post. This is just a general everyday girly essentials of what’s in my car. I haven’t included the actual practical things you need in case your car breaks down as I didn’t think it’ll be very interesting, but I do have these as well, don’t worry 🙂

99% of the time if I’m driving I will have my handbag in the car too, so things like make-up, hairbrush, tablets etc will be in there, so this list is solely in-car extras.

Also, on Tuesday it’s my anniversary with my boyfriend so we’ve booked to go to Dorset for the week (leaving tomorrow). We’re staying in a caravan in Haven, Weymouth and then driving to different places each day. I am so excited to get away with him! I think it’s around a three hour drive to the coast from where we live, so I’m going to pack a couple of extras into the car for this trip and list them separately below.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 🙂

  • Lip balm
