Travel and fashion bloggers make holidays look oh so glamorous. Over and over again we see each Insta-pic perfectly curated from head to toe that happens to perfectly match the exotic setting they are lucky enough to be in. How do they make it look so easy… how?!

To get to the bottom of this social media mystery we caught up with the gorgeous Jess Marshall from to get the low-down on how a true travel blogger packs their bag.

What are your top tips for packing?

I like to pack clothing that you can re-style into more than one outfit, that way you pack lighter but still have multiple outfit options.

How do you look your best after a long flight?

I think the most important thing is staying hydrated and packing a little travel makeup kit… mascara does wonders for sleepy eyes.

What are your carry-on essentials?

Water, a good read, healthy snacks and chewing gum.

What clothing item won’t you travel without?

My leather jacket and comfortable shoes!
What destination is next on your hit list?

I’m heading to Europe in a few weeks. I’m going to London, Paris, Nice, Rome, Croatia and Barcelona… just to name a few. I am beyond excited!

What do you love most about being a social media influencer and blogger?

I love that I have the ability to inspire and encourage others, I love nothing more than to make people smile.
