What's In Your Travel Tote ft. Rosie Fortescue

Before the Made In Chelsea style blogger jet sets across Europe throughout the summer, we find out what's in her Travel Tote to master the ultimate beach style!

1. Favourite Sun-seeking destination and why?
I've just visited Barcelona with my mum which was amazing! Neither of us had been before so discovering new places was a real adventure! There’s nothing better than walking around a city and being mesmerized by everything from architecture, to the food; shops and galleries. I came back feeling very inspired!

2. In case you lose your luggage at the airport, what emergency items do you always make sure are in your travel holdall?
I always keep the essentials in a holdall - no one wants their holiday ruined by a lost bag!
I love accessorizing outfits with hats in the sun but most importantly like to shade my face from the sun so I always carry a Panama hat. I'll pack an 'emergency' beach outfit and this year it's the 'Naples' one piece & 'Caroline' cover up; the ties in the one piece compliment the crochet cover up so well - super feminine and dreamy! To prevent my lips from drying out on the flight I pack my essential Elizabeth Arden Intensive Lip Repair Balm & to keep myself occupied I'll be reading Lena Dunham's new book as I love her series 'Girls'; and most importantly, my Lancaster sun cream! It's my go-to to keep sun safe!

3. Post-flight beauty – how do you refresh your skin after a long flight?
I use the Triple Oxygen Face Mask from Bliss which totally revives my skin and drinking water on flights is SO important to me as I dehydrate quickly.

4. What’s on your wish list from the Melissa Odabash SS15 Collection?
The Annabelle beach dress which can be worn over anything, not just on the beach or by a pool and the Carla cover up is so feminine and chic, it's just perfect for the beach club. I also love the Grenada which is a super flattering style and the bright Orchid Pink colour-way will compliment my skin both before and after a tan!

5. Hotspots for your upcoming holiday destination?
I am heading to Ibiza this summer, so I am very excited to check out the beaches as I have never been! I want to go to Formentera and see the more idyllic side of Ibiza, not just the night life! My favourite hotel of all time is the Bastide de Marie in Provence; The views are stunning, the food is unbelievable and it’s the perfect place to go and relax and my favourite restaurant is La Esquina in Brooklyn, New York. It has such a great vibe, the food is absolutely amazing and it’s somewhere heavenly to sit outside in the summer heat. I am hoping to go back for a trip this summer. My favourite shopping destination also has to be New York - walking around Soho and the Lower East Side you can just stumble upon the best boutiques with the coolest brands.
