Alohas Winter Getaway Essentials

Brrr. It’s almost that time of the year again – the dreaded Winter.

Here at Alohas we’re busy daydreaming about getaways to exotic corners of the globe, and now that the days are getting shorter, darker (and wetter!) it’s the perfect time to get planning.

For those lucky enough to get away this cold winter season, we’ve compiled a list of our 5 favourite travel essentials which you shouldn’t be leaving home without packing first.



Hand sanitiser

Airports, taxis and shopping centres all have something in common – yucky germs. We know that it’s not always possible to wash your hands after touching something questionably sticky, but with hand sanitiser you don’t have to. It’s basically every traveller’s best friend!

Our favourite is the scented Grapefruit sanitiser by thankyou. Antibacterial, natural AND cute – what more do you need?


Tinted moisturiser 

Just because you’re on holidays doesn’t mean you stop caring for your skin. Whatever season you’re heading into, UV protection is vital – particularly for your face.

Leave those sunburnt nightmares behind with a tinted moisturiser – like the “In a Good Light” by Mecca Cosmetica. With an SPF of 30, you can be well prepared for frolicking in the sunshine!


Wide-brimmed hat

Whether you’re headed to chill out on a beach or to sip cocoa on a mountain, you can never go wrong with a nice wide-brimmed felt hat. Versatile and fashionable, a hat can turn a simple outfit into an on-trend masterpiece.

We’re loving the Montana Mirage hat by Lack of Color. A nice change from black, the tan brings a cool-girl edge and looks killer with a pop of colourful lipstick.


Alohas sandals

Our beautiful sandals are the pinnacle of comfy-cool footwear and are the perfect shoe choice whether you’re traipsing through an airport or exploring a new city.

Every purchase comes with a canvas carry bag, so even when you’re not wearing them they can easily be flattened and put away into your suitcase. With two ways to wear them, they are versatile, stylish and can be worn from day to night - and did we mention how cute they are?!


Wherever you’re headed this season; stay warm, stay safe, and stay gorgeous.
