Packing Checklist For A Girls Holiday | Mallorca 2018

I've just come back from an amazing holiday in Calas de Mallorca, Mallorca with my friends.

I had such a great time, and instead of writing a blog post on everything we got up to out there, I decided to create a checklist of essentials and things to pack for a girls holiday abroad. Hopefully this will ensure you're prepared and ready to go away. I have also added some links to a few items that I love atm and would be lovely to purchase and pack for your hols...
